Rule number one at the home office: Don’t forget to eat. 

14 Lunch Recipes to Make While You Work From Home

Take it from someone who worked from home almost exclusively for years: Lunch is the most important meal of the day.

It breaks up your schedule and forces you to take a break from your home office, dining room table, or couch (do not work from the couch, it’s terrible for your back), and take a few moments for yourself. These 14 recipes are quick to make, flavorful and worth closing your laptop for at least half an hour.

Leftovers are also your friend here. Get creative with that leftover pulled pork, baked beans, rotisserie chicken, or pasta. When making dinner, cook enough for lunch leftovers for days afterwards. Whatever you do, make sure to drink water, get up to stretch at least once per hour, and open the blinds to let in natural light.
