Make your lunch the envy of your workmates with some of these tasty suggestions. Taking your own lunch to work is not only a cost-saving exercise, it also makes for good food choices and eliminating food waste. Most store-bought lunches are packed with oil. Here are some great salads that work well as a side to a main meat dish, and also just as good the next day to take to work for leftovers. Top up with a good handful of leafy greens if you have some to bulk them up.
