It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… and by "it" we mean eating lunch at your desk. If you're wondering how eating lunch at your desk could possibly qualify as a good time, we agree with you, but sometimes it's unavoidable. So, when the emails and assignments begin to pile up, make the best of your lunchtime desk confinement by packing a healthy and delicious meal. Plus, the right one will give you the fuel you need to tackle that endless to-do list.
Of course, this means you'll need to plan ahead of time. We recommend doing this before the craziness of the workweek really kicks in; ideally on a Sunday afternoon. While this may sound like a tall order (when all you want to do on the weekend is relax and enjoy yourself), this Bon Appétit video has you covered with five days of work-lunch recipe ideas. We’re talking BLT lettuce wraps, kimchi miso ramen, and a lemony smoked trout tartine—the whole enchilada (sorry, there are no actual enchiladas in this recipe roundup). PSA: Try not to drool on your keyboard while you watch.
