I am generally very good about bringing my lunch to work. Not only does it save me a lot of money (where I work you are very lucky to get change from $10 for lunch) but it also helps me get in my 5 serves of veggies a day. In summer I eat a wide range of salads. In winter it is usually veggie soups, ratatouille with cous cous or a veggie curry of some sort.
However, every now and then, often on a Friday when my brain has run out of the energy needed to remind me to bring something with me, I buy lunch.
On those days I am almost paralysed by the choices available. I've worked in the same street for almost 15 years (although for different companies and in different buildings, crazy I know) and in that time we have gone from one grubby takeaway and one nice sandwich shop to a plethora of choices. You can get everything from gourmet sandwiches, to sushi, dumplings, pasta, the standard chinese and greasy chips, etc. So it is a big decision.
Today I went with Turkish. Delicious fluffy rice, topped with chicken and a side salad. Actually surprisingly healthy for a takeaway lunch option. And so delicious. I ate well beyond what I needed to, but it is hard when it is so yummy. Time for a walk around the block I think!
