But Tetreault and Taylor don't see anything wrong with going out to lunch occasionally. Tetreault, however, recommends splitting lunch with someone.
"If you split what is considered a whole serving, you won't have that overly stuffed feeling," she says. "Serving sizes are so big, yet most people eat it all. And if you split, you save half the costs and save on how you feel afterward."
A recent poll by Right Management of 1,023 North American workers found that 39 percent of employees say they eat lunch at their desk.
At least they are eating something. The survey also found 28 percent seldom take any break at all. Only 19 percent say they almost always take a traditional lunch break.
But if people do eat lunch, Taylor says they can still enjoy it without buying it from a restaurant or food cart.
"Its really simple," she says. "Bring something delicious."
