They are also called lunch bars and are always crowded from 12:00 to 14:00, when workers from the industrial areas go there for a stealthy but rewarding break. In this particular year, however, some places near offices and warehouses have implemented take-away lunches following the anti-Covid19 regulations.

But that's not all: now many locals see their income derive largely from lunchtime, when those who work away from home are looking for a balanced and possibly healthy meal. A bar that is not too big and expectations that are a bit too dilated, often little appreciated by the public and dangerous for loyalty towards a place, can however bring
patrons to consume their break elsewhere. The take-away service is a solution to limit this difficulty, indeed with a personalized menu customer loyalty is strengthened, who feels pampered and listened to.

So here are 2 take-away lunch menus for 2 different types of workers to prepare with Combi Wave , the combi oven that cooks 20 times faster than other solutions. This way workers can enjoy their lunch break calmly.

The menu for those with physical fatigue

We have decided to divide the menus into heavy work and sedentary work, tiring ones require a high daily energy requirement. A dietary tip for those who do heavy work, such as workers, is to take in many calories while avoiding foods that are too fatty and foods that slow down digestion and promote drowsiness. A second course of meat, for example, accompanied by potatoes and vegetables is ideal.

Meatballs with potatoes

2 minutes and 30 seconds of cooking in Combi Wave is enough and the vegetable ratatouille is ready to be paired. A note on cooking: Vegetables should be diced and seasoned with oil, salt and pepper before going into the oven.


And if they really don't want to give up the first courses, offer a hot portion of potato gnocchi. The simple dough makes them ideal because they are low in fat but have a good energy supply. Also in this case the cooking times are ultra-fast: 2 minutes in the oven and go!


As mentioned before, the midday meal must be sober and easily digestible, to avoid concentration difficulties and drowsiness, especially if you spend a lot of time sitting in front of the computer. The employee's menu tries to prolong the sense of satiety by avoiding slipping into temptation and eating high-calorie snacks a few hours after lunch.
