Hi guys: I get 30 minutes break during work. Since I work on my feet all day I don’t want to go to the microwave and heatup my meal. I try to stay on fruits but 10 hours shift I feel hungry again and want to eat meat. Is there any way I can get away from the microwave. I just don’t want to keep any food in my lunch box which needs to heat up. Any food which full charge me and it don’t need to be heatup in the microwave. Any suggestion will be highly appreciate

Thanks.

What about something like a cold turkey/tuna/salami sandwich?  Power bars or other granola bars would probably help too.

I agree with @bayoubeast.  
Protein and granola bars provide longer energy than sugars and carbs.
You can also take some Protein drinks/Shakes.

If you have access to a hot water dispenser, you can add Oatmeal or instant soup.
Although the soup won't provide longer energy like the proteins.

Meatloaf sandwiches are good. Or just a good chunk of it.
And your choice of a side. Like some coleslaw or macaroni/potato salad.

sprouts and a thermous full of hot energetic drink along with sandwiches, salads will do.
Boiled eggs, dry fruits are other options. But they have to be in combo. A single thing will not help.

Fruits are going to give you 100-200 calories at a time...mostly sugar.  So, an hour later, you need more.  Do you have an ice pack?  If so, hard boiled eggs are a good option. Fat and protein will kill the hunger feeling, and won't burn up as fast as sugars.

If you don't have ice, you can pack jerky or summer sausage.  They're fine at room temperature, but are salty.

If you're not a meat eater, try a lot of fiber at the beginning of your shift.  Oatmeal will sit like a lead weight in your stomach...you shouldn't feel hungry for hours.  If you're watching calories, a fiber supplement like Metamucil will give you that full feeling all day long.  You won't have the inclination (or space) for a large meal.

I think _not_ eating for many hours is unhealthy.  Small snacks all day long could stop the large binge meals that are 2-3,000 calories because you're starving.

Yes the problem is that I am a meat lover. I guess I can buy tuna fish in a cane from walmat but I may tired one day eating the same food.

I too work in a job where I'm on my feet all day. Like you I only get a half hour lunch break. Some strategies I have resorted to are putting the ingredients for sandwiches or salads together in separate containers and then building my lunch when I'm ready. It means a fresh tasty lunch when I'm ready for it & I don't wind up with soggy bread. Another thing I occasionally do is dial a pizza and have it delivered.

cold cuts of all type
sliced pork roast is good cold (and makes a non-soggy sandwich).
I personally like caned salmon just out of the can.
