Low point packed lunch ideas

I recently started weight Watchers (mainly because I saw a picture of myself and couldn't believe how fat I am) I'm really struggling for ideas for a packed lunch for work. I used to have a couple of sandwiches but bread has so many points it's crazy. So far I have fruit but that isn't going to keep me going for a ten hour shift! Any ideas greatly appreciated.

I got some of the 3 point weight watchers wraps which I fill with chicken, egg or tuna and salad with reduced fat mayo. I also like tinned bean salad which takes 2 mins to cook in microwave, cool off in a colander under the cold tap mid with salad, tuna, chicken etc.

I also like to take leftovers or I cook a bit extra to take to work the next day.

I like to snack at work so I take Alpen light bars, metcalfes skinny popcorn multipack bags, cheese strings, fruit, olives, ww yoghurt etc.

It all works for me.....until someone brings in cake!

Work is the time I'm most likely to crack. The cakes are very much my undoing!

I make zero point soups and take them in a soup flask. Other lunches are WW wraps with either egg mayo, roast veg, tofu, quorn filling....roast veg with tofu/red lentils/veg...salads (from WW recipes so low points)... frittatas - I make loads of these and have with salad. THeres an awesome butternut and spinach one online which is 2 points for the whole thing!
