How about vegetarian spring rolls in rice paper wraps? I fill mine with thin rice vermicelli noodles, cucumber, carrot, red pepper, mint and coriander. They travel well and are very tasty. I take a small container of dipping sauce too - soy sauce or Thai sweet chili sauce etc.
You can make up a batch at the beginning of the week, and they'll last at least a few days (if you can resist the temptation to eat them all!).
Sushi salad is easy too - make up sushi rice and mix in veggies and sesame seeds and just leave it in a container, rather than rolling it up in nori seaweed.
I also like to fill pita bread with roast veggies and hummus.
Can I get the rice noodles and paper at a regular grocery store? They sound really tasty!
I buy at my local supermarket. It has an International food section - lots of rice noodles, Asian sauces, etc. The selection is better at an Asian food store or in Chinatown, if you live in a city with one, but I wouldn't make a special trip just for them. I find that noodles and rice paper wraps are pretty neutral tasting, so brands don't matter. The real highlight are the flavours and textures that you like - fresh veggies, flavourful herbs etc.
Wrapping with the rice paper takes a little patience and practice, but it's really just like wrapping up a burrito with a really thin wrap.
