Depends on the jobs I am doing. I usually pack a lunch, however my lawn route is very close to my home neighborhood so sometimes I stop home and have lunch.

It depends on what I'm doing, but in addition packing a lunch, and fast food, I always carry "Powerbars" or some other high-calorie equivalent for "between meals" or just in case I can't stop for lunch.
(I'm partial to the blueberry and the mint chocolate Cliff bars. Mmmm...)

I pack a lunch box with an ice pack and some fresh fruit,
Apples , Grapes Pears what ever is in season.
I use to eat at fast food but I was getting way to fat
and the meat sandwiches with the processed meat wast upping my cholesterol
levels way to high.

I like fruit but even after cutting one lawn everything suddenly tastes like grass.... I don't get hungry at all when working so I'd have to force myself to eat, maybe it's all the grass clippings that I inhale that keep me full!

I try to bring my own lunch every day, but it's hard sometimes if you don't have time or don't go grocery shopping. You never realize how much time/effort it actually takes into making/preparing food, esp. in advance! But it really does save you a ton of money instead of buying stuff everyday. Gets SUPER expensive.
