Do you have lunch in your office or usually go to a trusted nearby restaurant? Personally I find eating at my desk a little gross.

I save money and eat healthier by meal prepping and eating at my desk. I clean the keyboard and desk down frequently and make sure nothing is on the floor. It also makes lunch out of the office a special treat that I enjoy more, and I enjoy going home an hour earlier (or billing an hour more) than my coworkers who eat out every day. If I ever need a break from the office, I take a walk or grab coffee.

I rarely eat at my desk unless I am under a big deadline that day. I find the need to leave the office for my lunch hour to keep my mind fresh and to manage my stress. I walk several blocks to lunch, which is an easy opportunity for physical activity. If I can find a lunch buddy that day, it's a bonus. Socialization is very important to building good relationships with your peers and supervisors. Eating out is not cheap, but for a stressful career where burnout is frequent, eating out can provide benefits other than satisfying hunger.

That’s great. Not all firms do.

I eat at my desk everyday. Mostly because I bring lunch to work so as not to spend money on lunch everyday

I eat at my desk because I don’t have time to go out for lunch.

^yes

I don’t think it’s that gross - I stick to things I can eat with a fork like salad. Agree with everyone else — I’m more efficient at work so I can go home earlier, I save money (sweet green I love you but $15 a salad is ridiculous) and food is a lot healthier when you prep yourself.

I used to eat in the conference room with another co-worker. She was at the office for over 10 yrs, me 5 yrs. She forces me to take breaks I would otherwise not take. She's unfortunately gone now, so I'm back to scarfing food at my desk.

My trusted nearby restaurant is Wendy’s. Otherwise, it’s a can of Progresso Soup and an apple. That’s called living the dream!

Get outside every day. Get some sun and fresh air. It will clear your mind. If I’m busy, I can be back in the office in 20 minutes.

Eat at my lunch every day. So what if it’s gross. I eat healthier and save time. The amount of time I spend at work is gross

Depends on how much work I have. I usually eat at my desk cause I can pump out lunch in 15 min then get back to billing. That way I don’t have to stay till 7 every night, can leave around 6

Honestly? like keto chow. I am not keto, but it's delicious.

I’ve got to spend time out of the office at lunch. I am so much more productive after if I get a little break and some fresh air.

I bring my lunch and eat at my desk each day. Helps save money and just easier for me.

I maybe eat lunch 10 times a year. It took a while to get acclimated to fasting 12 hours a day, but once I did I’ve never looked back. I basically get back an extra month over the course of a year, and by working through lunch I have more flexibility to leave the office earlier for things that are important to me.

I inhale food at my desk most days. I am never productive if I eat lunch somewhere else.
