I used to bring a microwavable tv dinner to work for lunch every day, they are quick, easy, and there is a lot of different variety. Did you notice I used the words USED to?!? Well, I may just be 30, but at my last trip to the Dr. I was told to pay attention to my cholesterol intake. High cholesterol runs in my family, and to be honest, it probably doesn’t matter what I eat, I will have high cholesterol, but I don’t want to eat things that I know will make it worse. So I recently switched from TV dinners, to leftovers and sandwiches – and to be honest I love my new lunches.
Along with eating better, I have also switched my lunch boxes, I now use the containers I received for review from EasyLunchBoxes.com. These lunch containers have 3 separated spaces, one large for the main course and two smaller ones on the side. The large space is perfect size for a sandwich or a piece of chicken and rice. While the smaller ones are great for cheese, fruit and any type of snack. According to the website, you are suppose to use dry contents only, however I have put things like stew and yogurt in my containers from EasyLunchBoxes.com. These lunch boxes do not get that same snap and tightness as some of the other lunch containers I have used, so I was nervous to put stew into it, however using the lunch bag that accompanied my containers I did not have any spills or messes. The lunch bag allows the container to sit completely flat. The lunch bag isn’t anything flashy, so when I do have all dry contents for lunch I use my fancier lunch bag.
Packing your own lunch in reusable containers is eco-friendly as there is no packaging to throw out. Think of how much packaging you would save in just 5 days. Also, packing your own lunch is much healthier. I always brought the low fat or low calorie microwavable tv dinners everyday, however since I started packing my own lunch with EasyLunchBoxes.com I have actually lost weight. I’m not sure how or why, but it’s probably because I am eating way less salt (and we all know that salt retains water). And if you take a look at my lunch, it now includes things like strawberries and yogurt – both things I would have never brought before.
I do like the 3 compartment containers very much, and just when I was wishing it had a bit more snap/ tightness so I could bring things like chile and homemade soups, I found this helpful post on their new EasyLunch blog about making the containers leak free! I’ll have to give that a try.
