Lunch ideas with no heating up facilities?

I started SW this week and go to college 3 days a week where there is nowhere to heat up soup/leftovers. I had a baked potato today but definitely can't afford £5+ for lunch each day I'm in class.

Does anyone have ideas about cold food I can bring with me? I'm not mega keen on salad (I know, I know sad)

I like rice cold with veggies. Such as carrot, onion, green beans, mushrooms. I usually use a stock cube to flavour.

Take soup in a flask

Sometimes in the evening I do pasta and pesto with lots of veg for dinner. I do extra and have some cold for lunch the next day. Or you could use your HEXB for bread and take a sandwich. Cold precooked small boiled potatoes with carrot sticks/other cold veg and tuna or chicken?

Cous cous

I'd go for soup in a flask in this weather - a really thick, substantial one, like Scotch Broth. I am not a fan of rice salad/ cold pasta/ couscous so this is an area I struggle with in SW. Do you like hard boiled eggs? You could take those or cold chicken, along with some veggie sticks and make your own syn free houmous to avoid the oil/ tahini in shop bought stuff.

Do you like eggs? If so things like frittata or the crust less quiche would do you x

Ryvita or similar HEXB with low fat cheese spread HEXA plus ham and cucumber
