I work in an office, and almost always take my lunch to work. We have pretty good kitchen facilities with an oven, microwave and fridge/freezer so there is a large amount of options for me. We also have coffee/tea facilities.vt
Fridays we all get take-away unless I was disorganised one morning that week and have already gotten take out, in which case I’ll bring my lunch that day.
At the moment I’m alternating between curried egg and avocado on toast, and tuna with steamed veggies. For snacks I take cream cheese with crackers or some kabana.
Even the big bosses bring their lunch in most days.
Fiance works on construction sites and doesn’t have any lunch facilities. We have been battling for years for him to take his lunch to work. I did buy an old battered microwave off gumtree for him to take to work as they can hook it up to the generator (his bosses now use it more than him!)
He spends usually from $15-$25 a day on lunch, and buys absolute crap. I said to him he should have take out on Fridays and when he works weekends, which he agrees on, but then it usually reverts a week later to buying his lunch everyday. He is a huge eater but has lost a bit of weight recently, and I think it’s because of the junk food he’s eating. He is unhappy with how he looks and wants to put more muscle on and have more energy, which I’ve told him comes with eating better.
We are slowly getting there, We are finding things that keep well in his car during the hot day (in a cooler bag) and he likes and are filling, but it’s taken a lot of trial and error and more than a couple of arguments.
I don’t believe in micro-managing partners, but he blows his budget that we set each week, and this is why. His arguement is that it’s easy for me with all my facilities and that if he had the same facilities, he would happily take his lunch. All the other boys who work with him also buy their lunch, and there is a bit of a teasing element with the ‘cut lunch’.
So I was wondering if you buy or bring your lunch to work, what lunch facilities do you have at work, and if you bring, what are your favourite meals and snacks? Some new inspiration could really help out 🙂
