Simple quesadillas are a terrific way to change things up, and though they're fantastic after a quick re-warming in the microwave, they're also pretty darn good at room temperature.
Why not have waffles for lunch? Make them with whole grains so they're relatively healthy, and add a host of fresh fruits and an easy protein like yogurt, and you're set.
