Back to School, Back to Work: What’s in Your Lunch?

What's in your lunch?

For those of us in North America, the recent Labour Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer – or, at least, summer holidays. School children everywhere are heading back to class with various degrees of excitement, and parents are re-establishing routines.

One routine that’s easy to drop is that of preparing lunches to take to work. We’ve all done it, and of course it’s nice to pop out to a restaurant with friends.

My lunch today will include this tasty black bean and corn salad, with the kick coming from an easily prepared lime-based dressing. If you’re looking for ideas for tasty lunches to take to your office -or other meals, or small bites for when you’re entertaining – have a look at my Food page and the drop-down options for different meals and occasions.

What do you do about work day lunches? Do you pop down to your in-house cafeteria, out to a grocery store, or do you skip it? If you bring lunch from home, what does it look like?
