Bored With Your Work-From-Home Lunch? Try These 27 Ideas…

It’s 12pm on a Wednesday and I’ve wandered into my kitchen, officially hungry and looking for lunch. The only problem? Everything is either boring, needs extensive cooking, or (oops) looks like it might bordering on “too old to eat.” I’m desperately wishing I’d prepped something better or, at least, planned for a better lunch by getting the groceries needed.

Lunches never have to be boring, but work-from-home days are an especially great opportunity for a little midday pick-me-up in the form of a delicious lunch. You can make the most of leftovers or whip up a quick grain bowl, pasta dish, or gussied-up salad—much better than your usual.
