Work-week lunches can make or break a good day at the office. Sandwich with fresh deli meat, mayo, and lettuce? Great, except when you’ve had it for the last three days, and you’re running late and don’t have time to wash the lettuce. Cup O’ Noodles? Fast and different, but about as filling as a pretzel. (And not an Auntie Anne’s pretzel, either.)
Theoretically, the supermarket is full of delicious and filling lunch alternatives. Pastas, soups, even microwaveable sandwiches are all waiting out there on the shelves – for a price. So which ones are worth it?
For you, dear reader, I am going to find out.
For the next two weeks I’m going to sample some potentially awesome lunches, and I need your suggestions. Chicken alfredo? Soups? Frozen paninis? Lunchables? If your lunch hour is dull and you’re curious about some newfangled food you saw on TV, and want to know if it’s worth your money, tell me about it and I’ll give it a try.
IT IS FOR SCIENCE.
And because I’m bored with sandwiches.
But mostly science.
