Lunch During Long Emergencies

Lunch can be an important part of the day, especially during long emergencies when you may be working 12-14 hours a day repairing your home, tending a garden, or any number of other things. Taking a 30 minute break to eat lunch will be a welcome relief. But what's the best way to make a healthy, filling lunch when the power may be out and cooking fuel may be limited?
I like to make roman noodles and a vegie for lunch. Take a can of vegetables (I think corn or peas work best), empty into a pot and add 2 or 3 cans of water to the pot. Add noodles and cook for 5-15 minutes (depending on how high the cooking temperature is). Let it cool for a few minutes, then enjoy. Make sure you also eat the liquid because some of the vitamins from the vegetables will be in there.
