Fun fact: Not everyone enjoys the smell of popcorn in the office.
We all have that one co-worker who loves to come to work and cook up a storm in the kitchen. You know, the one who insists on microwaving foods that leave a strong odor that lingers in the office for hours. Remember, offices are usually tightly enclosed spaces with poor ventilation and in the cold months of the year, windows are kept shut— so the last thing you want to do is to bring a lunch that is likely to produce strong aromas that your co-workers may not like.
That’s why we’ve created this list of foods you should think twice about reheating at work unless you are purposely trying to annoy your colleagues.
Here are the top ten types of food we recommend you avoid microwaving at work.
3- Spicey food
5- Heavily garlicky foods
10- Fermented vegetables
