If you're a foodie like me, then you probably look forward to eating three times a day — maybe even more if you're a snacker. Let alone that food's already delicious, it's also an excuse to check out of your daily responsibilities or check into an extravagant venue.

We even have an entire category dedicated to food on our website, where you can share your favorite meals, read food-related content and discuss the latest trends in the food industry. 

So, to my fellow lovers of bacon, egg and cheese bagels, flavorful salads and slow-cooked dinner meals, this article's for you. Just wait till you read our list of suggestions for the best food to bring to work!

Breakfast bites

Let's start with the first and most important meal of the day, breakfast — and on weekends, brunch! Spruce up the classic French toast by infusing a layer of strawberry cheesecake. 
Have a little more time? Grab your waffle maker for this fabulous blueberry compote and lemon ricotta cream waffle recipe. Find out how to make both these meals plus 23 more here: "25 Mouthwatering Breakfast Ideas for Work."

Caffeine cravings

I don't know about you, but I can't get through the day without a dose of caffeine. On Mondays, that looks like a muddy glass of coffee. On Wednesdays, consecutive cups of tea. And on Fridays? — I ditch the mug for a glass of wine. 

If you're looking for "9 Healthy (and Delicious) Coffee Alternatives", we've got just the replacement for you.
