With the start of the new year I know there are a lot of us moms who have made resolutions to eat better, exercise more, and make better overall choices for our health. While this is all well and good when we’re at home thinking up New Year’s Resolutions, sometimes the practical application of those good choices can be a little harder to stick with once we are back to our normal routines.
My biggest challenge has been sticking to a healthy diet. As I was brainstorming ways to do this, a friend recently shared a great tip that she had made a decision to always be prepared with a cooler full of healthy snacks. This had worked for her in the past so that she was never tempted by so called convenience items or fast food options.
Taking this tip to heart I decided to find a way to keep some healthy choices with me every time I leave the house without using up an industrial sized supply of plastic baggies. My search led me to ECOlunchbox and I couldn’t be happier with the great ECOlunchbox Oval I’ve been using!
Made out of high-quality, food-grade stainless steel 304 the Oval is a 2 piece set. The large oval lunchbox measures 6.5x5x2 inches and the round stainless steel cup has a 3.5 inch diameter. While the oval has a stainless steel lid, the round cup has a BPA-free #4 LDPE plastic lid which means you can pack “wet” items in the small cup without worrying about leaks.
All pieces except the plastic lid are dishwasher safe, and you can even put the stainless steel containers (NOT THE PLASTIC LID) in the oven at a medium temp to reheat food items. The ECOlunchbox Oval is made out of metal so do not use it in the microwave (you think this would not even need to be said, but… yeah).
Salad and dressing, veggies and dip, sandwiches and pasta salad, breakfast sandwich and applesauce – the list of combinations for what to pack in my ECOlunchbox Oval is endless and I’m glad to lose the temptation of the fast food drive through.
