Does the Office Make You Sick?
If you're a desktop diner or microwave your lunch in the office kitchen each day, then you might be setting yourself up for more than lunchtime boredom. If you can't break away from e-mails and the pile of work in your inbox and tend to eat at your desk, then it's time to get clean. Frozen meals like Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine are smart diet choices when supplemented with some fruit or a salad, but they have to be heated in the microwave.
Have you taken a look at your office microwave lately? If the cleaning staff isn't on top of things, then it can become a bacteria breeding ground. If you want to take matters into your own hands, start by cleaning off the buttons with a bleach-based wipe or spray. Continue with the inside, then rinse to prevent the bleach smell after cooking. Keep the door open and advise others to do so after cooking to minimize smells.
