How to build a better lunch


How can you make the most of your lunch? The American Heart Association and Aramark found that over 50% of people eating lunch during work hours struggle to make it healthy. In addition, one in three people report that their lunch is less healthy on a stressful day. Lunchtime is a chance to focus on your health, fuel your mind and body, and enjoy your favorite foods.
