Liquid lunches

Can anyone give me some suggestions for liquid lunches. I work 6 hours during the day so I only get 20 mins for lunch. I used to eat a variety of foods but then I fell off the SW wagon and since then they have instigated a no food policy in my office. The only work round is I can have soup in a cup as long as it's not a thick soup that I need a spoon for. Cup soup, yes, coffee, yes, tea yes, milk, yes but no mug shots or anything like that. Recently I've just been skipping lunch because I feel like I'm cramming food down my throat with no time for it to settle. Soup is ok but not good when the weather is hot. Any suggestions???

I don't have smoothies or shakes or anything, but I've had soup cold quite often... my office is seriously warm, so when it's winter and I make soup for lunch, I'm often too warm to heat it up and I've just had it cold.
It sounds awful, but a plain veg soup is actually quite nice cold! And there are specific soups that are meant to be cold as alternatives.

I'm loving my juicer - like REALLY loving it.

I'm having juices in the day and some form of protein ... I pressure cook some spiced chicken so I will have 2 glasses of juice and 1-2 fillets of chicken cold. Boring and basic but it works for me. I have friends who buy tins of Tuna including the infused ones if you like tuna ... I don't. Generally any meat you like meat not fatty and cooked right.

Grapefruit is a great boost to your day BTW if you juice.

I pref juice to smoothies but I have a Breville Active Blend too an the kids love making smoothies (if you have kids).

You could make over night oats if you want carbs and fruit. I love it.

You can buy pots/cups now for soup that have a spoon attached - Just to add variety it could be an option?

I'm starting to add some pics to this thread:
