I’m fond of breakfast, dinner, and dessert. But in my heart of hearts, I know that lunch is the best meal of the day.
Want last night’s dinner that actually tastes better as leftovers? Lunch.
Want to order a grinder without your significant other knowing you’re cheating on that diet you both agreed to do? Lunch.
Want an excuse to stop working for 30-60 minutes in the middle of the day? Lunch.
There’s so much to love about it, it’s hard to understand how it flies so far under the radar.
And today, we’re going to make lunch even better (if that’s possible). Because the truth about lunch is that it absolutely, 100% cannot be messy.
You’re at work. You’re wearing your nice clothes. You’re sneaking in that sandwich you don’t want anyone to know about. A grease stain on your shirt is going to be a dead giveaway.
Your coworkers will laugh at you. Your clothes will be ruined. And that diet you were supposed to stick to is going to end in a fiery blaze when you get home.
And the problem is that lunch is so often a sandwich meal but sandwiches are so prone to ingredient slippage and stains. How many times have you eaten a sandwich only to see a rogue tomato or sneaky piece of bacon slip out between the bread and head right for your freshly washed pants? How often have you eaten in the most awkward position possible because you know your sandwich is a ticking time bomb?
Well, thanks to The Cooking Channel, those days are over. Sandwiches (and lunch) are no longer a threat to clothes and secret diet violations, and it’s all because of this little lunch life hack they came up with:

Now, to be fair, the idea of using friction to keep things from slipping around isn’t exactly novel. That’s just how science works. But the idea that greens can be alternated around other ingredients to provide that friction is new to me, and that’s what makes it awesome.
So go ahead and enjoy that sandwich without stress. Lunch is safe again.
