Subject: What do you eat for lunch on a typical workday? Do you brown-bag it, eat at a cafeteria, or go out? Do you eat with coworkers or solo? Do you work through lunch? Do you do something else during your lunch break, like take a walk, run errands, or go to the gym? If you work from home, do you make a fresh meal and play with your pets or kids? Tell us something about your midday break in this report.My lunch is kind of easy-peasy: The whole working group gathers at 12 a.m. sharp and visits the canteen together. There are always three warm meals (one of them vegan or vegetarian) plus additionally fresh salads from a bar for self assembly or other warm options. The actual meals are state-subsidized for students, so much cheaper than the salad and other bar stuff which has to be paid by the ounce.
Bringing my own lunch is not really an option because of the canteen (the workers frown on people that eat their own lunch there). Not going with the others is also frowned upon - but not by the canteen workers but my boss. So to the canteen I go to eat more or less healthy there... Which usually takes about 30 minutes with all of us talking about work and heading back to our desks. Not the most exciting or relaxing lunch "break", I guess!
But since I work long hours and go to sports or computer class directly after work, I also bring some afternoon snacks which I eat during my low energy point between 3 and 4 p.m.. I always have some nuts at hand in case I get severely hungry, but usually my snacks are a smoothie or self made yogurt with fruits. Sometimes a salad when we made some at home and have leftovers!
My boyfriend on the other hand almost always takes leftovers from the stuff we cooked the evening before.
