Bringing salad for my coworkers and me.
Hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs with ham, brown rice with chicken, protein shake with oats.
PBJ. protein bar,,, yogurt.. Gatorade i usually make 2 burgers before i go and bring one with.
I normally don't pack a lunch ... there is a BBQ place down the road and I get a half chicken ... nothing else. I go to the window and the guy doesn't even ask me what I want - just throws the chicken at me. :P

3 8- 10 ounce chicken breasts, Lean turkey sandwich with fat free sharp cheese, Natty PB on whole wheat, 2 protein shakes, I try and get eggs in the AM if im running late Ill take a protein shake and a Natty PB sandwich and I try to get some kind of lean ground beef for the day.
I use those Asian seasoning packets at the grocery store. For lunch, I have half pound of diced chicken breast with 1/4 cup of white rice and veggies to suit in the Asian seasoning. Kung Pao Chicken is my favorite.
For my snack at work between breakfast and lunch, I have half pound of ground beef (or turkey depending on the price) cooked in taco seasoning, topped with shredded cheese, salsa, and spinach. Wrap it in tortillas when ready to eat.

I normally eat the same thing everyday and it works great for me throughout the work day... depending on what you are trying to accomplish, I could give you some good ideas to help... let me know...
I was doing baked chicken breasts every day, but last week I'd been using a Weber beer can chicken seasoning that was actually quite delicious, anyway, it gave me some gnarly farts, so this week, I've started up Yams again. I eat a plain small Yam MWF, and a plain turkey and pumpernickel sandwich on tues-thurs. The yams are actually pretty good, I just poke fork holes in them in the morning at the house, then wrap a wet paper towel over them and microwave for 5 mins at lunch time.
