It makes no sense to me to climb to the top of the food chain just to eat carrots. But I digress. To the OP, is there anything preventing you from taking a cooler/ice chest to work? I'm the polar opposite of vegetarian but I regularly bring food to work that requires it to be cold. I'm not the biggest fan of eating out (trying to save a dollar or two) but I will if I'm lazy and don't bring food. Obviously it's going to be harder to eat out when you're a vegetarian, but I recommend bringing a decent cooler to work. You get to choose what food you bring, you'll always have your lunch in the rig and not risk rolling the dice ordering food then getting a call, and it's cheaper/healthier than eating out.
