Occasionally make a sandwich or bring in left overs but planning what I'm going to buy for lunch is one of the best bits of the working day.

I was about to say just this! I'd hate knowing all morning exactly what I was going to have.

My wife makes my sandwich, which I then proceed to complain about in typically 70's fashion. Struggle to contain the breadcrumbs in my false teeth as I tut my way through her creation.

And God help her if she tries anything new.

I intend to make food but never do. It's usually a crappy sandwich from Sainsburys for me - I love to get outside during my lunch break and cannot stand eating at my desk. Need to sort out my diet!

We have a subsidised canteen but the food is rank, except for the Friday custom breakfast sandwich. £2.90 for a 3 rasher 2 egg baguette

I walk home (5 mins) and make lunch at home. Its very civilised being able to look at any post, watch the lunchtime news and generally have half an hour to myself away from everyone else, but do wonder if I'm in some sort of timewarp! Nobody else at work lives within walking distance of the place!

Our company buys us lunch, we have an online system made by one of the programmers that allows us to order from Pret, Leon or Itsu and Japanese Canteen on a Friday.

I am surprised at the poll results. Different from my day. I am not sure that is a good thing for society. I can accept the healthy eating argument, and saving pennies if a Pret has become outrageously expensive.

It seems to me that life has got all a bit sanitised and horrid in the last 15 years. All about control and tight fisted companies penny pinching their slave workers. Work and life used to be fun to a certain degree. I am getting the impression that increasingly it is not so. Not just from these silly threads, but as a general overview of comments on the BBS.

It seems that people are desparate to keep jobs they dont like, pay credit (mortgages and student loans) they cant afford, but gadgets they dont need, and are sucked into thinking that life revolves around having to take that 2 week med holiday to GET AWAY FROM IT ALL.

Not for me peeps.

I try to because I'm trying to avoid bread as much as possible and all decent options local to work include bread of some sort. I make salads at home in the morning, trying to vary what I have with them.

Also prepare fruit to take in with me, too.

Then I cook a proper meal at home every night.

Almost never.

Mostly eat out of the onsite restaurant but sometimes vary it with a Wasabi or a poncey artisan roll from Paul.


Every now and then i’ll treat myself to a Breakfast club ir GBK.

I waste a fortune on lunch but i find the hardest part of bringing your own is having enough variety.
