Taking time out for lunch can help reduce stress and also improve morale and productivity. But not everyone has room in his or her budget or schedule to have lunch out every day. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a relaxing, delicious lunch right at your desk. Just be sure to vary your choices through the week, and back away from the computer for at least a few minutes while you eat.
With more than 30 varieties and freshness-sealed for flavor, Hormel® Compleats® microwave meals offer you a world of choice with dishes like Spicy Ginger Chicken. Sample all three assortments to find your favorites: comforting Homestyle recipes in the red packaging, nutritious Balanced Selections in green, and adventurous Café Creations in blue.
After enjoying a satisfying balanced meal like Hormel® Compleats® Chicken Pasta Primavera, try some “deskercizing.” It can be as simple as adjusting the height of your chair or computer screen every few hours, taking a stretch and a few deep breaths, or walking around your workspace while a large file downloads. You can even invest in a small, inexpensive hand gripper to strengthen those forearms with a series of squeezes while you read text on your screen.
Here’s an idea—pack your luncheon sandwich “au naturel”—it means “nude!”—but in this case it refers to “hold the bread.” With a sandwich made with Honey Deli Ham from Hormel® Natural Choice® deli meats, for instance, you won’t miss the bread because you’ll enjoy a taste that’s 100 percent natural with no preservatives. Here are some recipes to get you started. And if you’re not quite ready to go “cold turkey” on the bread, use a low-carb tortilla wrap instead of the lettuce in the recipes below.
