You can only get so creative with a microwave.

Yes. However, while most people greet their mornings with something sweet like pastries, I decided to cook fresh fish for breakfast last week. The smell traveled all the way upstairs to the conference rooms where there were some meetings. I was in hiding for several hours.

I'll pass on the porridge, thanks. Sometimes instead I'll roast peppers and put them in an omelet with shredded meat, cotija cheese and chopped tomato. That makes a good breakfast. There are a few people at work who fawn over the smell of roasting peppers, so I have to make a little extra to share.

I remembered when I go to work.. I don't bring lunch or eat lunch there.. so my boss let me leave an hour early.. I got this thing where I'm feeling uncomfortable eating with others.. I don't even eat with family..

For example if they order pizza, I don't eat it, I just simply go into my room and lock the door.

We have a full kitchen available for employees.
There are two eight-burner stoves and two industrial ovens.
There are also several refrigerators (for each department) that you can order groceries through (up to $180 per week, per employee).
If you go over your allowed sum, you have to inform human resources that you're cooking for "groups" and outline your recipe.
So usually, yes. I cook at work.

If you aren't the type to cook, there are also vending machines that use the same system that takes credit out of your account for lunch.
The problem is that it isn't uncommon to have people stealing some of your food from time to time if you leave leftovers in the fridge.
Team leads can actually order takeout if approved by HR/Finance (depending on how large the order is).

That sounds pretty awesome. Right, I am envisioning this delivery system, mainly for food. Like processed rice, beef, chicken, etc. That can be ordered and delivered to you either at home or work place, like FPS, but scheduled on time, rather than buying it from the supermarket.

With that said my work place does not have a kitchen, and the environment isn't the most desirable for cooking.

On top of that I am going on diet = =, Fred's quest of never getting a girl friend continues, I think I am fugly or something and have to lose weight for better appeal

I am looking to improve the quality of life as of a while ago. Leave work on time, bigger bathtub, better breathing air, and of course, big chunk of meat. Most of these simple assets are absent where I live.

So I envy you , I heard the work place in America could be quite competitive, but if you enjoy your work and it pays well, you're on the right track

P.S I want to be like a juice truck driver
P.S Same goes for garbage collection

I don't really eat at work unless I am working over ten hours. I like to skip lunch so I can go home early if it's possible.
