Work lunch break – the time of day when office workers across the globe gather to chat about the latest craze, their home life or what they’re doing on the weekend. It’s very easy to fall into the trap of eating what’s available at the canteen, expensive meals on the go or full blown restaurant options.
People are turned away from bringing their own lunches to work as it means taking time out of our already busy days, but NOW it’s time to lunch differently – make the change! Start making your work lunch with easy, low cost methods. Menus such as salads, vegetables, sweet potato, eggs, and pasta are all meals that can be easily prepared without having to spend too much time in the kitchen.
The benefits of bringing your own food:
🍅Healthier & better portion control for your waistline
🍆Control of the ingredients and quality of the food used
🍊Awareness of what you are eating
🍉Keeps you away from overpriced comfort food
