I still work full time and I carry my lunch from home every day. Of the 15 people in my office, only two or three of us carry lunch from home. The rest race off to a fast food joint somewhere down the road, then race back and gulp down their food in the 15 or 20 minutes they have left of their lunch hour. Which I don’t get at all.
I bring a book, listen to music or a podcast, and relax for an hour for my lunch. It is a nice break in a hectic day. If others are in the lunch room, we chat for an hour or so. People often say, “I should start doing that too.” But they never do.
I carry my lunch for a variety of reasons:
You can follow #lunchbox or #packalunch or #packlunch on Instagram for ideas or follow me on Instagram at #neeniemakes. I also have a board on Pinterest, Lunch Ideas, where I collect lunch ideas.
Just a few relatively inexpensive items are all you need to carry a healthy and nutritious lunch every day. I have an insulated lunch box, a variety of containers with lids and a stainless steel Thermos with a foldable spoon which allows me to carry almost anything I care to eat at lunch.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 1982 and have been gluten free ever since. I went dairy free two years ago. I share recipes, DIY projects and crafts, gardening tips, life philosophies and thoughts on this blog. This is just my story. In no way should it be taken as medical advice because every individual is different. There are also a few affiliate links for products I use and recommend. I make a tiny amount of money if you buy something and it in no way changes the price you pay.
