- Stock your work ‘pantry'
Dedicate a small shelf or a drawer to lunch things and kit it out with the basics.
- Stock up with the tools you'll need
Depending on your work set-up, you might like to include a little chopping board and a pocket knife in your work lunch arsenal. If cutlery and crockery are scarce it might be a good idea to get a little lunch bowl and fork or spoon.
- Figure out the best storage options
Most workplaces provide a fridge you can store your lunch. But if not, consider investing in a little chiller bag. Or if you have access to a good food shop nearby, maybe allow time to pick up whatever you need in your lunch hour.
- Allocate the time you need
Not only will keeping some easy recipes around at work save you time but it is also a good way to save some money.
Stone Soup also has a great cookbook available in PDF format.
