You might not know that what you eat for lunch directly affects your productivity at work. A study cited in the British Journal of Health Psychology reveals that the more fruits and vegetables people consume, the happier, more engaged, and more creative they tend to be. The reason behind this is that certain less-healthy foods such as pasta and cereal release their glucose quickly, leading you to feel a burst of energy but then a slump. Other foods, such as high-fat cheeseburgers and pizza provide you with more sustained energy but require more work from your digestive system, resulting in reduced oxygen levels in the brain, which makes you feel groggy.
We know that it can be hard to come up with healthy meals to pack for lunch at work, and you may be tempted to grab take-out from the nearest sandwich shop. Yet not only does packing lunch save you a lot of money, it also often leads to more nutritious meal choices. Here are some of our favorite healthy lunch ideas that will give you the energy you need to be productive at work.

The bottom line is that law firms and lawyers need to keep current with technology because being deficient means losing business—or going out of business.
