If I can be honest, lunch is what always got me through the first half of the day. I used to get in at 6am with my fatty coffee, and slug through work fantasizing about my lunch 80%of the time. Sure, I wasn't a great employee, but I was a great lunch packer hehe. I ALWAYS made sure lunch wasn't something boring because who want's to look forward to a boring, sad lunch? These sandwiches were definitely in the rotation for exciting, delicious, filling lunches!
