    Crawl under your desk, eat, read high fantasy books, play ambient music.

    Yanni works well for that sort of thing.

    You guys make me laugh...I think finding a nice bench or a outdoors cafe sounds so nice. Taking a walk after lunch will be even nicer.

    I really enjoy walks during lunch in spring/summer. Unfortunately, I rarely have time to do this.

    I usually leave for lunch around 11am and get back at 12:20pm or so. I eat lunch with my wife almost every other day (since she has classes on the off days)

    We eat somewhere locally and either buy there or she brings it to me from home (which is what I'm trying to do more to save money and eat better)

    I go to a coffee shop and read while I eat and sip tea if I feel like I need to get away.

    Eat a whole wheat bagel with chives and hummous at your desk, then slip into something more comfortable, then go outside and do tai chi in front of the building. At the next staff meeting, offer (with strong hummous/chive breath) to give tai chi lessons to anyone who's interested.

    Eat lunch at desk and then go for walk around building and have a nice smoke. Great stress reliever.

    Today I couldn't eat with the wife so ate a homemade turkey sandwich at the desk. It makes the day so much longer when I sit here this much! [​IMG]

    I always buy my food at teh grocery store and store it in the break room fridge. I then make a sandwich and take a walk for 30-40 minutes.

    Making your own lunch has its advantages: you can eat what you want, and you can eat healthy. Typically the cheaper option as well. However, the variety is crap once you reach the week's end, and face it, it's boring.

    I love eating out, but with only a half hour's time, it becomes very difficult to eat well. Most healthy places aren't necessarily fast. It can get expensive, so find a place near your office that is your go-to: cheap, semi-healthy, but delicious. I'm wishing you good luck with that one.

    I thought this was style forum....

    Make a fancy picnic lunch...with cavier, champagne (non alcoholic since it's in the work place), asparagus and sour cream all the fancy stuff and put a picnic cloth on your table and act like it's your own VIP stand!

    Style and profile...

    Well, you can sit in your car or you can go home if you have enough time. Maybe go somewhere with friends?

    Make a mobile lunch (sandwich, roll, wrap, something you can walk with) and go for a stroll around the block, not only will the lunch keep you healthy but the exercise will do you good. If you ride to work you could even go for a quick cycle.

    Do what everyone else says but find a co-worker to partake in your outdoor lunches with you, socializing is a great way to unwind, just don't discuss company politics! If there is a nice lush green patch of grass outside, lay down a blanket under a shady tree and take a nice nap. I used to love naps during lunch breaks.

    I used to eat lunch at my desk, but I'd always end up working through my lunch. Then I tried going out for lunch, but then people ask me to pick up stuff for them. [​IMG] Now I just walk around for an hour, or hang out at the local bookstore. I rarely eat lunch (or breakfast for that matter) anymore.

    This sounds horrible.
