    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    I must do 20 of 21. Lunch is such an expense near me, and it's £10 on food that is not particularly tasty. Mystery dining must be the only exception. I am not allowed to slip up.

    It's not so much being hard, its losing focus and momentum to keep bringing lunch to work.

    Where I am based, there are four supermarkets and five take away places within 5 -10 minute drive from site.

    Well done photome :) i find it hard as I got out of the habit of bringing lunch when i moved house and didnt have a kitchen for a few months. Mostly since then I bring a sandwich or salad and then end up fancying a packet of crisps or a coke or something and end up buying extras! So I use this challenge to keep me on the straight and narrow :) plus its good to see other peoples ideas for lunch!

    It is more convenient then making food at home and bringing it in.
    It often tastes better than a soggy sandwich I made the night before. I hate sandwiches and prefer things that taste good. I don't want to eat meat and carbs for lunch everyday.
    It provides a mental and physical break from work which is crucial for those of us with stressful jobs.
    Taking in lunch requires planning and time in the evening. There are many times when I don't get home until past my regular bed-time, and have no interest in cooking.
    Eating a tasty lunch makes me feel good about the day. I am easily bored and don't repeat meals.

    That said, it's expensive and not always more joyful than a delicious lunch at home. A well cooked packed lunch beats a Pret sandwich.
