Picnic Without a Plan

Get outside for an impromptu summer lunch

Step away from your desk. Take a lunch break—and don't come back.

Summertime lunches taste better when they're a spontaneous picnic, so drop everything and head for the great outdoors. You don't have to plan ahead or have a fancy picnic basket at the ready, and with these four easy steps, you can be out the door in 12 minutes flat.

Find an old tote bag (or borrow a coworker's) and fill it with those snacks you're hiding in the office fridge.

Pack the stash of leftover paper plates and napkins from your company's last outing.

Stop by the nearest Starbucks to pick up ready-made meals, like a Cheese & Fruit Bistro Box that's perfect for grazing or a fuel-packed Protein Bistro Box.

Because no summer picnic is complete without a refreshing drink, top it all off with Starbucks' new Teavana® Iced Mango Black Tea Lemonade.

Lunchtime is made to be spent outside, so go on and ditch your desk chair for open air.
