What are good recipes I can make for my bf to bring to work as a construction worker?

I'm trying to figure out what I can make for my bf to bring to work. He's a construction worker and it's difficult to find healthy prepped meals/snacks to bring with him. If anyone has any ideas please share, thanks!

i find that i can get a lot of prep work done for big grain salads over the weekend. and they don't need to be refrigerated, which is a big plus! https://food52.com/blog...

Anything that can be enjoyed room temperature (like these: https://food52.com/blog...), so he doesn't have to depend on refrigeration at the construction site!

I'm often at construction sites for work, and see lots of thermoses with soup, stew, etc. - especially if working outdoors during the cold months. (Also, somewhat related - homemade baked goods for the team at break time = instant popularity.)

My husband is on the road a lot for work and he often takes soup stews, and casseroles in his thermos. Homemade granola bars also travel well.

My boyfriend and I have started making super vegetable-heavy quiches twice a week (one on Sunday and then one on Tuesday/Wednesday is enough to last the two of us!) with our leftover vegetables—it's really hearty, and packed with a yogurt or small salad is really filling and perfect! Plus it only takes about 45 minutes to make one! I admittedly keep store-bought crusts in my freezer for the times I'm in too much of a rush to make my own and use this recipe as my base: https://food52.com/recipes...

You can also ditch the crust and make frittata -which is good cold, holds its shape and isn't as crumb-y without the crust. I do that too when I forget to hold the diary order and wind up with five dozen eggs in the fridge. The 16 egg frittata - with leftovers from dinners inside!

The idea of vegetable-heavy quiches sounds very good.
Also reminds me of hand pies (traditional Cornish pasty with meat and veg, or a variety of more modern savory and sweet fillings).
