River Lunch Ideas...no more flatmeat!

I just got off a Grand Canyon trip and we literally ate the same "Lunch meat, cheese, and lettuce" sandwiches for every lunch the whole trip. I don't mind it occasionaly, but it got old pretty quick.

Curious if ya'll have any innovative ideas for lunch that doesn't involve having to get a stove out or excessive dish use.

Taco salad with Costco chicken is a fav. You can also do tostadas with a can of refried beans and some basic fixings. If you boil the noodles the night before you can make a pretty awesome pasta salad with a bit of chopping and a bottle of Italian dressing.

We grill portabellas with Red and yellow peppers the night before. A little cream cheese with the fixings in a wrap or tortilla. Wrap in foil and throw in your day cooler for the next days lunch.

Lettuce wraps. Cheese, Toby's, tomatoes, tuna in foil packet and some mustard. Also I really like Costcos premade pulled pork. Some buns, slaw in a bag and chips and you're living.

I've had good success with sticking with sandwiches, but adding in chicken and tuna salad (handy because you can get the meat in foil packs that don't need to stay cold), mixing it at breakfast. It only adds a bowl and a few utensils to the lunch set up and clean up. It also adds variety to flat meat (love that term) sandwiches to accessorize a lot, having some combination of humus, olives, pickles, roasted peppers, PB&J, Cholula, Sriratcha, chips, etc at each lunch (less complicated than it sounds).

Chicken or tuna salads. They can be wrapped up or not. I'm a chef so they're not your average Safeway salads. Peanut butter and jelly are staples. I usually have some "gourmet" condiments that will at least make your flatmeat more interesting. Guacamole or hummus are nice additions too.

Smoke some pulled pork at home (or buy some from a good barbecue place), bring some kings hawaiian rolls and coleslaw, a little good barbecue sauce and you've good a crowd favorite without much work and dishes on the river. Or you can have pulled pork sandwiches for dinner and leftover sandwiches the next day.

I call it the C&C. Cheese and crackers, hummus, vegetables, veg dip, pepperoni and/or salami, fruit and cookies for dessert.

BLT wraps with pre-cooked bacon are pretty good and easy too.
