I've worked at home for the past 20 years. I actually consider it much easier to moderate my food intake at home, because I have control over the groceries. (Well, my husband also has a say, but he eats a lot "cleaner" than I do so I don't have to worry about him bringing temptation into the house.) I can choose not to purchase overly tempting foods.
I suggest you figure out 2 or 3 breakfast and lunch menus that are both healthy and tasty (to you), and stick to those. For example, my go-to breakfast is 2 slices of buttered multigrain toast and a fried egg. Lunch is either a home-made tortilla pizza with cheese, tomatoes and onions or a quinoa salad with feta cheese and veggies. I find these meals very satisfying and don't mind returning to them again and again.
