Luckily there is a Coles next to my work. I just went & stocked up. I bought Ryvitas, cheese, a couple of tomatoes, small tins of tuna, and a couple of tubs of soup. And even bought my own knife and soup spoon, and glad wrap. People at work probably think I'm crazy, especially as we have a free buffet/cafeteria. They have hot dishes and salads - I guess the hot dishes would be okay, but I don't eat there very often as it is. The other pregnant ladies at my work eat there all the time.
One more question: there is a really nice chicken shop near my work too. It's not a food court type place - they do nice, free range BBQ chooks, as well as sides of roasted veggies, chips, burgers, etc. And they have a whole heap of different salads - leafy ones, pasta, rice, etc. And a lot of them contain chicken, which is obviously the cold chicken from the unsold BB chooks cooked the day before. I usually get lunch from there regularly, and the ladies know me. What do you all reckon? They are very busy & seem to go through enough chooks that I think hot chook would be fine. But the salads? I am sure they would follow very good hygeine practices. Would you do it?
