Lean Work Lunch Ideas

A great lunch at work can mean the difference between powering through the rest of the day at your best, or struggling to focus with one eye on the clock and the other on the vending machine. Making your own lean meals not only saves you money, but can also save your waistline as well. And with a few healthy lunch ideas, it can be easy, too!
