The Desk Pantry: 5 Items That Can Help You Have a Better Lunch at Work
Don’t let your desk lunch get you down. Here are five pantry items to keep on hand to have a better lunch at work.
1. Fancy Salt
2. Spice Blends
3. Nut Butter
Sure, nut butter comes to the rescue for a quick sandwich, but we have bigger plans for this pantry staple. A spoonful of nut butter is the easy solution for quick peanut noodles, creamier soup, and a more interesting cup of plain yogurt.
This tiny citrus offers big rewards for a better office lunch. A small squeeze can be used to brighten up flat-tasting leftovers, make a quick salad dressing, and jazz up drinks like iced tea and water.

Lunch isn’t just about a nourishing meal — it’s the time to give yourself a pause to recharge in the middle of the day. One of our favorite candidates to get the job done is a small jar of sprinkles. Add them to your PB&J, stir them into your yogurt or oatmeal, or sprinkle them over apple wedges with nut butter. They’re a fun lunchtime twist that will bring a smile to your face.
