I get very excited at work when it's finally lunch time. I look for a quiet corner somewhere to have my packed lunch in peace. When it comes to lunching I'm not the most social, I just want to concentrate on my packed goodies and refresh my mind for the rest of the day. I often also go for a walk outside. Lunch time is almost as good as getting to leave work in the afternoon.
I take my homemade lunch with me every day. I'm not too keen on our cantine food, as it tends to be more on the unhealthier side, chips etc. I guess that's quite typical for the British canteens, or have you made different experiences? And don't even get me started about the office cake culture!
My lunches vary quite a bit from day to day. Most of the time part of it is previous night's dinner, which I then normally eat cold the next day. That usually takes the dish to a different level and it doesn't feel boring eating the same thing again. Then there can be sandwiches or homebaked rolls. Salads are also a popular choice, as I always prefer a lighter lunch. I often add fruit, berries, crackers or pieces of cheese to complete the lunch box.
This time my lunch box contains some fresh vegetables, hummus, croutons and nuts, and in my opinion it's just the perfect mix for the lunch time. What's your favourite work lunch like?
