I am famous in the office for my homemade lunches. Lunchtime is the time everyone looks forward to at work. It’s the time to take a well-needed mental break, to refresh your senses and to re-energize your brain so you can take on the day like the super hero that you are.
How many of you lunch mates, like me, adore your homemade lunch at work (even if you are wolfing it down over your computer)? Now, how many of you (unlike me) are spending at least $10 a day on lunch? Lunchtime should not break the bank! I’m saving both my wallet and waistline (well… the waistline not so much) by bringing my lunch in everyday to BHL Productions so I can spend my dough on the things that matter in life – shoes, magazines and any accessory with Beyoncé or a pug on it.
Bringing your lunch to work daily may sound intimidating and frustrating at first, but it’s super easy and fun! First, rock a super cute lunchbox so that anything inside automatically seems awesome. My lunch bag is cheesy, yet seasonal and cute. It also states my life theme: I <3 Lunch. Goal accomplished. Staples offers trendy lunch bags and for a cheap price!
Next, bring in food that will make your co-workers just jealous enough that they won’t hate you. Everyday, my boss salivates at my homemade lunches. Since fall has arrived, I am obsessed with making soup. Soups are fast, easy and healthy. I throw in as many veggies as I can in my soup and even better than that – they last you all week. Today, accompanied by my soup, I brought in an avocado sandwich on whole wheat bread, that totally produced an instant “I’m-healthy-and-trendy” vibe!
Lastly, share! The other week, I brought spicy hummus with carrots and shared with our new intern. It was a great way to start a conversation with a fresh-faced co-worker and spread the hummus addiction! Stay hungry as I unpack my lunch bag with yummy tips and tricks. No mate should go hungry or broke during my lunch break!
