15 Easy And Portable Office Lunches : Make your coworkers jealous

Thinking back on it, I must have cooked more instant noodles than any other food in my life. It was a staple that took me through college. It’s what I make for myself when I came home too tired to do anything but boil water. Besides being a life saver for lazy college girls, pot noodles make the perfect speedy lunch. Quick, tasty and healthy! Oh, and be aware of the jealous colleagues!
