5 Foodie Lunches You Can Take to Work

We count food as part of our culture--who doesn't love gathering over yogurt parfaits and mimosas for a co-workers' birthday? Plus, our office seems to be right in the middle of Seattle's best grub 'hood of all. However, what's a foodie to do on those days when you just don't have time to head over to Il Corvo or Salumi? We've put together some fresh ideas that make bringing your lunch to work cool again! Cauliflower "Rice" Stir-Fry: I love stir fry but the traditional method doesn't offer a whole lot of nutritional value. Plus, I love a recipe that takes 15 minutes or less!
