Lunch is something most people don't think about until hunger strikes in the middle of the day -- and it comes all of a sudden, with full force. For the most part, we quickly run out of the office to grab a bite to eat or bring something in. And while some of us may have a plethora of restaurants to choose from, the choices are essentially the same: sandwich, soup or salad.
These are all items that we can easily prep at home and bring in ourselves; in doing so, we can save money and skip out on some unnecessary calories. If you have made a New Year's resolution this year to be more economical or to eat healthier, bringing your lunch to work just makes sense.
We understand that it can be a bit of a challenge to get your lunch ready in the morning. That's why most of the recipes suggested below require only a short list of ingredients or are perfect solutions for using up leftovers from dinner. From Chicken Empanadas to a Couscous, Beef and Avocado Salad, these are all recipes that you will be happy you took the extra time to prepare.
