Use these ideas to come up with some variations that would work well for lunch. None of them require a lot of work to prepare.

Directions:
Dried or dense meats: jerky (Beef is most common, but also available are turkey, chicken, and ham), pepperoni sticks, hard salami, other similar meat sticks will work as well.
