Somewhere around age 20 or so I got my first “professional” job. I began working as a receptionist and have worked since then throughout administration, finance, customer service, sales and marketing. For the past 7 plus years I have been employed as a Sales & Marketing Specialist for the same corporation. In all this time, I have come to realize as so many ensconced in Corporate America have, that the concept of a lunch “hour” is mostly fictional.
Often times when you are part of a scaled down staff, pressed with a heavy workload and tight deadlines you are truly lucky to even get a 15 minute “mental break” at your desk. The reality is often you end up eating and working because you feel obligated and pressured to do so. This is the expectation of the salaried employee after all, right? We can all only hope that we are doing what we love on our quest for that regular paycheck! I look around my cubicle city every day and know I am not alone! How about you?
That is of course, you eat and work if you were smart enough to bring your lunch! So yes, this is the way it is, even for me. I admit I slow down a bit and perhaps have a little less focus while I eat but I keep going!
Type, type, bite, type, type, bite!
It helps to have really great food in times like these. A lunch that is easy to eat and packed with nutrition to keep you going and make you feel like a company executive whether you are or not! A lunch that will almost make you feel like you did have a lunch “hour”! OK maybe that is a stretch but I guarantee you will feel better after you have a proper lunch!
I have nicknamed my lunch featured in this post the “Executive Lunchbox”. Packed in my beautiful stainless steel Lunchbots Trio like a gourmet, catered meal ordered in.
This lunchbox is full of variety and contains:
- 3 Veggie dumplings purchased in the sushi department of my local grocer.
- Sugar snap peas
- Colby Jack and Wisconsin Cheddar cheese along with veggie crackers
- Kiwi, sliced nectarine and 1 whole strawberry
- Served with low sodium soy sauce on the side
Do you have a heartier appetite? The Lunchbots Trio is now available in a larger “adult” size which is 60% bigger.
