Top Five Fast-Food Home-Made Lunches

Liz Marr, MS, RD


You know you love what you do when you look at the clock, it's 3:00 p.m., and you suddenly realize you forgot to each lunch. How can that be, for someone typically engrossed in food-related work? As a nutrition and culinary consultant, I am focused on food most of the day, through recipe development, nutrient analysis, writing web content and the like. So maybe we can think of the occasional meal forgetfulness as food sensory overload - a hazard of the trade, perhaps?

When I do get around to lunch, I'm usually anxious to get back to work, so I take a quick break. Because I work from home, I have a very short commute to and from work - one flight of stairs away from the kitchen. Sometimes I bring lunch back downstairs with me to the computer. (True confessions from a dietitian - this could be a form of mindless eating, but I prefer to consider it an integrative experience in my line of work.)

With a home office, I don't eat lunch out very often, so I have a rather different concept of fast food. Check out my top-five favorite summertime fast-food home-made lunches.
