I generally follow the same template for all of my meals, which means all of my lunches are pretty simple to make and involve hard boiled eggs.
I'm student and spend up to 12+ hours in college sometimes, especially since it's exam season so having something simple I can throw together in bulk, refrigerate and take as I'm walking out the door is pretty crucial. (Affordability is also a factor)
The only issue with all of this hard boiled egg business is that my recipes are a bit repetitive and I'm getting a little tired of it all.
My lunches usually look a little like this:
3 boiled eggs (sometimes I'll use 2 eggs and some tuna then instead)
2 large tomatoes
1/2 Avocado (Sometimes)
Cucumber or carrot shavings if I'm feelin' fancy..
I switch it up using simple homemade dressings like lemon juice, dijon mustard or my own garlic mayo.
I like using egg as my main lunch fat/protein because it's affordable and I generally use nuts at breakfast time and meat during dinner. Any suggestions of adding a little variety to my egg-y lunches would be appreciated!

Scotch eggs. Meatballs + eggs = deliciousness. Typically made with sausage, but I've used all kinds of meats (even tuna) and it alway turns out great!
I make a frittata every sunday and it feeds me the whole week. Delicious and simple...
If you dice up the eggs with some homemade mayonnaise, onion, celery, and sprinkle with paprika, you've got a half-way decent egg salad. Essentially the same, but it should be enough of a mix up for variety's sake.
