During your lunch break at work, do you bring your own food or do you eat out?

To those who have jobs, when you go on your lunch break do you eat food you brought with you or do you go to one of the local food places to order food?

  • During my lunch break at school I either eat in the cafeteria or I go to one of the fast food places right next to campus. Parking is a bitch there so I wouldn't want to drive to someplace decent. We don't have fridge space in the school and I don't want to leave my food in the car or carry it around all day.

    As for work, I work at a restaurant at nights so if it's not too busy I'll order something with my employee discount. If it is busy I'll just get something to drink and then cook when I get home.

  • Depends on if I cooked the night before, made a lunch before I left that morning, or what I have a taste for. I normally bring my own lunch. However, if I cooked something and it tastes like crap or I'm tired of eating it (leftovers), I'll go to Wendy's or McD's for something quick to eat. I also don't eat until I'm full either, I eat until I'm 70-80% full. Eating until full makes you lethargic, stretches out your stomach from the inside, and makes you lazy too.

  • I am trying to bring my own lunch but it just doesn't work out like I'd want it to.. the thing is in my work, we don't have a microwave. Neither in school. So most of the time I end up buying smth from the mall.

  • I used to buy food out but once in a while, I'd bring something from home. Nowadays though I think it's smarter with food costs rising to bring lunch from home.

  • At first, I used to bring my own lunch which was a sandwitch. But I realized that if you put a wrapped sandwitch in your bag, it gets kinda wet and gross :$ so now I just buy food from the foodcourt.

    • that's why they have sandwich containers now. Plus it's all going in and out the same way lol

  • When I was working I ate the food they had there. I would always get a bagel with cream cheese :) I worked at a baseball park. The worst job I've ever had!

  • I work in a downtown area and a Dunkin' Donuts is practically next door. So, I eat out and when money is low, I normally pack a bag of baby carrots and some lemonade

  • I make my lunch the night before or few hours before work or school. It's healthier for my body and healthier for my bank account.

  • I get a 70% off food at my workplace. It's always very fresh with lots of variety so I just spend a couple bucks on that.

  • I usually bring food from home. When I wake up too late in the morning or I forget to grab my lunch, I'll go out for lunch.

  • When I worked in retail, I just grab something from the Subway or Pizza Hut. We had a discount so it wasn't too bad but it did add up, especially when you worked in the holidays working 15 hours shifts, 5+ days a week. I don't think I've ever brought lunch to work.

  • I am very cautious with what I eat. I've had stomach problems in the past (and sometimes these days), I feel afraid of getting pain again. So I always bring my own food. I'm just not comfortable eating food at restaurants. Fast-food or regular restaurants. Doesn't matter. I have to cook or make my own food to feel comfortable eating it.

  • usually I'll go to the cafe across the way (it's so good it has its own website!), sometimes I'll drive around and get something. Sometimes I'll bring a lunch, depending on if I have leftovers/gotta save finances.

    I'll just say this is a typical 2-week window.

    week one - eat at cafe 4 times, eat out one time

    week 2 - eat at cafe 2 times, bring lunch 3 times

    something like that.
