Win a Luxury Hamper: Bring Your Lunches to Work!
Here at officebroker.com, weΓÇÖve been running a campaign to encourage the team to start making imaginative lunches.
The challenge was to home-make a delicious dinner with less than ┬ú5, and bring it in to the office to inspire colleagues and prove that lunch doesnΓÇÖt have to be limited.
The challenge was a hit! Just check out these tasty creations…

Win a Massive Hamper Full of Lovely Food!
Would you like to win a luxury continental food hamper full of delicious ingredients for your next snack?
It couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is make a tasty snack for less than ┬ú5 and send us the photo!
WeΓÇÖve paved the way and now we want to see what you can do to get yourself eating healthily, keeping costs down and thinking a bit more about how office life can affect your lifestyle.
The maker of the best lunch (to be judged fairly by our committee) will win a big hamper full of fresh food to make even more amazing appetisers!
Why Homemade Lunches?
YouΓÇÖd be surprised how few Britons are bringing their own lovely lunches into the office, and instead just popping to the local shop/chippy/greasy spoon to make it through the day.
So we started to think about how keeping costs down and being healthy really applies in our own daily lunching habits… and our findings were quite a surprise.
The Time Honoured BLT: A Case Study
Ah, the traditional bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Is it anything less than a British institution?
In a normal UK supermarket, these handy and delicious lunch time treats sell for ┬ú1.50 per pack and have a rough nutritional value of 485 calories, 15 grams of fat and 48 grams of carbohydrates.
But what’s the home alternative? We added up the average to find that you can buy two packs of bacon (10 rashers a pack) for ┬ú4, a loaf of nice white bread for ┬ú1.35, a head of lettuce for 70p and a jar of mayo for 48p.
YouΓÇÖve now spent ┬ú8.90 on the equivalent of 10 BLTs. That means that each BLT for the next two weeks only cost you 89p. It also puts your intake down; using the ingredients cited above, youΓÇÖre consuming about half as much bad stuff ΓÇô specifically, 260 calories, 8 grams of fat and 20 grams of carbohydrates.
Send Your Photos!
So why double your calorie intake and spend more money when you can make yourself a great dinner at home?
Send a photo of your homemade lunch, along with your name and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give the best lunch a big hamper gift.
