Sure, January may be about being virtuous (read: eating green things) -- and we have nothing against kale! -- but today, we're talking about a different kind of virtue: bringing your own lunch to work. We discuss desk lunches that are anything but sad when we answer the question:
What is your favorite brown bag lunch?
Merrill: Lentil soup with spinach and chicken sausage.
Maddy: The beauty of working from home is not having to brown-bag it (woo!), but when I worked in an office, I loved grain salads with feta, some crumbled mild Italian sausage, and chopped vegetables. I'd toss everything with a fresh herb vinaigrette.
Lauren: A cruciferous-heavy salad with fish, a hardboiled egg, and a lemony vinaigrette.
Jennifer: Genoa salami and provolone cheese on a baguette with bag of Lay's potato chips.
