It really depends upon what your goals are to decide what you take to eat with you at work...
Right now I take one big container (32 oz.) of greek yogurt - 520 calories 90 grams protein 0 fat
2 protein bars - 180 cal each 20 g protein each
1.5 servings of special k protein cereal 150 calories 15 grams protein
2 servings of green beans
1 serving of either chicken breast or tuna...
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.

I usually stop by Potbelly and grab a chicken salad without bread ( since I need to keep my carbs low ) and have some ranch dressing.
For this meal, I was able to keep the carbs at 4 g and protein at 22 g. A little bit short for protein, so I sometimes double it. But before I order anything, I use nutritionix calculator to check the nutrition facts.
I also check out Baja Fresh and take some Carnitas with Flour Tortillas carbs:23 g and protein: 50 g
