    Leave it in the windowsill for a few hours before your lunch break?

    Seriously, when I worked in an office setting, I would either bring stuff that didn't need warmed up (nuts, jerky, food bars, fruits/veg, salad, etc) or would use the microwave in short bursts. Warming things up in 20-30 second bursts, stirring, and then repeating until the food is warmed throughout seems to be a pretty good way to avoid denaturing any proteins and whatnot.

    Some have recommended getting electric steamers or mini crockpots or things like that. If you have a place to keep it at your place of work, then maybe something along those lines would be better than the micro, but I wouldn't stress it. Food doesn't taste great if you nuke it for several minutes at a time, but using it as outlined above should result in tasty food without any significant loss in nutrients/protein quality/etc.

    Because everything freezes under Windows. :P

    It doesn't get easier... It's you who gets better.

     

    Is your social worker in that horse?

    Oops, no, that only makes sense for keeping it cold. To warm up, you can put it on a slow, overheating computer.
