The garden is doing so well, we have so many greens and radishes that everyone is enjoying. Also, we are using one square as a compost bin, the Green Team is collecting food waste at lunch. Things are looking great, a huge thank you again.
I don’t believe in strict diets or starving yourself; eat three meals a day. I believe in eating a good breakfast, a good lunch and a light dinner. Eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a queen, and eat dinner like a pauper. Your ultimate goal is to eat all the basic food groups in those three different meals.
I’ve done plays where you get into the run and can go to auditions during the day, or can have lunch with someone, and then you go to half-hour and show up.

I just lost my lunch and I didn’t even have any!
I’ve only been a mom for not even two years yet, so I haven‘t had much of a chance. But boy do I wish I could have lunch with my girlfriends in the middle of the afternoon. I don’t remember the last time I had lunch in the afternoon with my girlfriends.
I just love the gifts you bring me for lunch. Other girls get diamonds. Me? I get mayhem and blood – and all before noon. Thanks, Tate. (Simone)
I usually like to throw on some flip flops and go to a really nice lunch in Venice, or Santa Monica, or stay in and cook dinner.
Teaching regularly has made me an even more adept reader, I think. The kind of teaching I do is more like editing than anything else. The kind of editing book editors used to do before lunch. The kind of editing I used to do as a radio documentary maker.
Now I’m seen by more people in one episode than I was in 20 years of theatre and movies. It’s gratifying to have an impact on 25 million people a night, but I can say goodbye to my lunch-pail life as a working actor. I’m scared I might be a celebrity.
Seven-thirty to five, every single day. Getting up, eating breakfast, lifting weights, going outside on the turf, doing movement and agilities and things like that. Then I take a little break to eat lunch and come back to work out again.
Most Americans are skipping meals and when they do eat, they’re starving and they’re eating an excess of sugar and calories. Really it’s about eating breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner, and trying to feed yourself.

When we went to America, Robin Williams came to the gig, and Mike Myers had lunch with us and wanted to write a film for us. We’re idiots – we turned it down. I think we were just sick of each other at that point. When you get famous, it takes some time to realise it isn’t going to be good.
I have a restaurant in Milan, and Paper Moon is five minutes away from my hotel, so I always go there for lunch. It’s a casual place that serves good salad, pizza and pasta; the space is tight with tables close together, and it feels buzzy. Food comes out fast, too.
Don’t be gullible, use life before it uses you. Understand there are no free lunches, and for every action you take, there’s a reaction.
Every spare second I would write, somehow. On my lunch hour, too.
When it comes to love, too many people are out to lunch.
In the morning we received some very thin coffee. For lunch we had potato soup with a few pieces of meat in it, in the evening we had a very thin meat soup with some potatoes in it.
Make dinner with the goal of stretching it out for lunch in the back of your mind. Making more of one thing is cheaper than buying more varied ingredients for each meal.
I’ve forgotten the birthdays of everyone close to me. I have forgotten to pay bills, file tax returns on time, go to meetings, and, every week, I forget to put the bins out. But I have never forgotten I want my lunch.
In the eighties, we had the ladies who lunch, the power lunch – everything was power. At the beginning of the nineties, things changed.

I tend not to eat lunch because a midday meal makes me want to sleep in the afternoon.
My husband is a very present husband, and that has made going to work feel easier. I don’t feel guilty. I definitely feel less guilt because I know he’s there during breakfast, lunch and supper if I’m not.

I never missed a Sunday lunch growing up and I’ve continued that tradition with my own family.
I take small meals three times a day – Breakfast at 6 or 7 A.M., let my body digest what I eat, and then I have lunch. My last meal for the day is at around 6 P.M. No more food after that.
There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” A Libertarian Movement slogan – The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, 1907.
If I’m in a state about a book, I’ll get up at 6 A.M. and write before breakfast, but usually I’ll start afterwards and then work a full day with a break for lunch.
I approached photography the only way that I knew how to approach anything: as a job. I would get up, photograph all morning, stop and have lunch, and then, photograph all afternoon. I didn’t think that I had to wait for some inspiration.
For ages, in my lunch hours, I would just go round and choreograph fight scenes. For fun. So now I’m very good at being thrown around. I bounce, in the words of my friends.
I have an affinity for the old Seattle coffee shops, places like the Green Onion and the Copper Kettle, the classic kind of coffee bar – little places that served breakfast, lunch and dinner and have pretty much disappeared.
I’m going to try to pull a Natalie Portman. Natalie went to Harvard while shooting ‘Star Wars‘. I don’t know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her – that seems like a bunch of stress right there.
Lucky me, the producer was arriving, and when he saw me [dressed as an old lady], he didn’t know what to think. I told him, ‘I’m your grandma here’s your lunch, honey,’ and I got my first TV show in Mexico.
I picked up On The Road, Howl, and Naked Lunch (in that order) in high school. I was blown away. The writing was amazing and the places it took me was even more far out. It opened up new avenues of thinking for me and so I went down the beaten road.
When buying a new house … Buy the house far enough away from school so your kids can’t come home for lunch.
I wrote ‘Criminal’ in 45 minutes when everyone else went to lunch because I had to have a hit. I can force myself to do the work, but only if someone is right up behind me.

Sunday lunch should be about sociability, about conversation, about general stimulation and the education of the youth.
The old boy network is still too strong in Canadian business. A visit to the Toronto clubs at lunch stands in about as great a contrast to the multicultural, multiracial subway underneath as can be humanly imagined. This is not healthy.
I had this one audition – I won’t say the casting director‘s name, but she was on the phone the whole time I sang. I was literally doing my audition, and she was on the phone. So I guess whatever it is she was ordering for lunch was more important than the high C’s I was belting out.
When you fall asleep after a big lunch you’re really just saving up energy to work off all the calories later on.
No wonder lawyers, who control the legal system, have fought so hard, and with great success, against “no faultinsurance. No fault, no lawsuits. No lawsuits, no lunch.
It is important to recognize that behind the razzmatazz of consumerism, we all remain dependent on basic natural resourcesland, air, water and biodiversity – for every product and service. There can be no free lunch on the environment.
In my experience, with very few exceptions – I am, as it happens, one of the exceptions – the one thing that most editors don’t want to do is edit. It’s not nearly as conducive to a successful career as having lunch out with important agents or going to meetings where you get noticed.
It’s not easy to be my sons because we’re very high profile. We try so hard to give them a normal life. I’m very, very tight with them about money. I don’t give that money until they ask, ‘I need 100 yuan for my lunch card,’ and so on. So they never have extra money.
If you ask anyone around the cricket grounds, they will say I always sign loads of autographs and thank the ladies for lunch and try to behave in the right way.
Mum and Dad started ‘This Morning’ the year I was born, so I was aware from a young age that they were famous. People would come up to us at Sunday lunch and say how much they liked the show.
Here’s my tip: Have your production hire the best hair stylists on the planet to do your films and commercials, then casually hint about how great it would be to get a trim during lunch break.
Instinct told me it was dangerous. I could handle dangerous. Dangerous and me went back a long way. We did lunch when dangerous was in town.
You now have six-year campaigns for the Senate – you never stop running. It’s not uncommon for a member of the Senate to have a fundraising breakfast, a fundraising lunch and a fundraising dinner, and then when the Senate breaks for the week to go home, more fundraisers. And that’s driven by the cost of campaigning.
it came to me, as we sat there, glumly ordering lunch, that for extremely stupid people anti-Semitism was a form of intellectuality, the sole form of intellectuality of which they were capable. It represented, in a rudimentary way, the ability to make categories, to generalize.
Being aggressive is a lot less risky in the end. Are you going to eat your lunch, or have your lunch eaten for you.
William Esrey
Flatulence peaks twice a day… five hours after lunch and five hours after dinner.
The rains are rhythmic, coming religiously in the afternoons (after lunch has been eaten but before tea, so that the nights are washed clean-black with bright pinpoints of silver starlight hanging over a restless, grateful earth).
I’ve done panel shows, which I enjoy, and on those you’re recording half-an-hour of TV and sometimes they film for two hours. But with ‘Britain‘s Got Talent,’ you’re on camera for eight hours, with a large theatre audience watching – and in between you’re being filmed for ITV2 as you eat your lunch.
Dress simply. If you wear a dinner jacket, don’t wear anything else on it … like lunch or dinner.
It’s usually a jolly good trick to pick up a local tour guide. They can tell you all the anecdotes that make a place interesting. I’m one for rushing off to museums at the crack of dawn, eating fabulous things on terraces for lunch, and enjoying long dinners on balmy evenings.
The more you put in your body, the more you have to regulate it with insulin. So later kickoffs, you’re talking about breakfast, lunch and a pregame meal, so that’s more food you’ve got to be aware of and what you put in your body. A noon game, light breakfast, a little fruit and some insulin, and I’m good to go.
Rightly or wrongly, most Americans look at mortgage equity withdrawal as the closest thing to a free lunch.
Of course it was a terrible thing, and the world would be a much better place without someone in it who could do that, but did that mean we had to miss lunch?

I definitely at times notice a difference in service when I go out.

I am a nice person. I care about my driver having lunch, you know.

If you’re given champagne at lunch, there’s a catch somewhere.
Richard Lyons, 1st Viscount Lyons

Peanut Butter Wolf is my relaxing music, my lunch music, my chilling music.
In real life I’m not the character I play in my films. I’m reasonably competent, I work very hard, I’m disciplined, I lead a very middle class life. I work in the mornings, I have lunch, I practise my clarinet, I go to the movies, I eat out in restaurants or watch ball games on television or at the ball games.
If you’ve ever been in the West Wing, it’s like a little rabbit warren. Everybody’s crammed in there on top of each other, and you’re eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the mess with people. And so you really get to know each other very well. So, I think they just weren’t worried.
Burroughs is the greatest satirical writer since Jonathan Swift. . . . The net result of Naked Lunch will be to make people shudder at their own lies, will be to make them open up and be straight with one another. Swift and Rabelais and Sterne accomplished a step in that direction, and Burroughs another.
On a personal level, I send out about 20 thank-you notes a day to staffers, on all levels. And every six weeks I have lunch with a group of a dozen or so employees, to get their perspective on the business, to address problems and to get feedback.
