There’s one thing everybody looks forward to right in the middle of a hard day at the office: lunch.
For some, that means a quick bite at the desk while dashing off a few e-mails or completing other tasks. For others, a sit-down affair with coworkers at a nearby eatery; for still others, a trip through the drive-through for a greasy burger and fries.
Still, many workers go the old-fashioned (and possibly the healthiest) route: a brown bag lunch packed at home.
Lunches brought from home tend to be more nutritious than restaurant fare, and certainly more so than what you’ll find in the vending machine or at a fast-food joint. Because more thought goes into what people put together in their own kitchens, the odds of their choosing foods wisely increase exponentially.
One of the problems with brown-bagging is that it’s easy to fall into a lunch rut. When the same old sandwich gets boring, it’s a great time to get creative and add some healthy variety.
