Lunch Strategies for Work
The Best Choices When You Don't Have Time to Pack

I mostly packed my lunch when working w/ either leftovers or soup & sandwich. Cafe had a salad bar & hot entrees but not great
Prefer to grab a burger out at BK. Whopper Jr not too bad. Or Star burger from Carl's Jr.
Now retired we eat out once a day, late lunch. I like to cook but hubby prefers the social interaction. That's okay, I manage. We hit Denny's or a local place for soup or fish often.
Thanks for the great article!
I'm glad I have a plan B when for whatever reason I haven't packed a lunch. In addition to a gym, my workplace also has a cafeteria. My best cheap healthy lunch costs me $1.25. I buy one hardboiled egg and a side salad. I take it back to my workspace and add some unsalted mixed nuts and a capful of vinegar. On days when I order a meal, you can get an entree, 2 sides, and drink for $4.00. On Wednesdays, they have big specialty salads for $4.00. Can't beat the prices.
Good reminders. Some useful strategies here.
Consider the nutritional consequences before putting anything in your mouth
Gotta do the hard work
Very good and helpful article
I usually take lunch. My biggest problems are the day when I have no leftovers from the night before. On theses days I will either wait until I return home after work to eat or I will pick up some fresh fruit to hold me over. I'm trying to do better.
