Make a Sticky-Salad.
I like to make these to have around for 1-3 days.

2.5c Cooked Quinoa (or millet?)
2c Cooked Lentils (boil) (80g+ protein)
1.5c Cooked Chickpeas (steam or boil)
1c Pistachios (or nut of choice)
2-3 Shredded Carrots

Depending on what type of mood you're in, you can flavor it with things like

Braggs liquid amino
vegan vegetable broth
Himalayan sea salt
dried cranberries (fruit of choice)
vinegar
olive oil (or oil of choice)
various herbs & spices
various salad dressings

Could also add tempeh or tofu, seitan...whatever you like.
bell peppers
tomatoes
onions
cucumbers....

it all goes well. Get creative. I put them in a big dish with a cover for the frige...taste good cold.
