10 Healthy Office Lunch Ideas (Infographic)

Working a 9-5 office job can leave you playing out the same routine, day in day out. This also affects your lunchtime with many of us opting for the easier option of grabbing something quick (and more often than not, something unhealthy).

Eating healthily at lunch unfortunately is often associated with negative connotations such as too time-consuming and costs too much money.

But with the right know-how and plan of action, you too can eat something more exciting at lunchtime, as opposed to that soup in a cup that has been sitting in the staff kitchen for weeks on end.

Below are 10 healthy office recipes that you can incorporate into your work-life routine.

A special thanks to Bon Appetit, Picket Palate, Weelicious, Stonesoup, The Food Charlatan, Spicy Spoonful and The Salty Tomato, from where we sourced the recipes.
