Lunch break, anyone?

In a perfect world, you’d order a fancy (albeit expensive) salad every day or treat yourself to a scrumptious power lunch. But in reality, you probably make lunch at home and eat it right in front of your computer. Every. Single. Day.

It’s okay, you’re not alone. Studies show 62 percent of employees eat their lunch at their desk. We know, we know: Working while you down your lunch is not awesome. We’ve read all those articles that claim it forces you to sit longer and stunt your creativity, but the truth is the phenomenon isn’t fading into oblivion anytime soon — especially if you have a busy schedule and looming deadlines.

But just because you’re eating lunch at your desk doesn’t mean it has to be sad. The good news is there are plenty of accessories that make the entire experience easier, prettier and more enjoyable.

These foodie-approved accessories will turn your office meal into a lunch al desko.
