Life Changing Lunchbox

Life Changing Lunchbox... I don't want to go all "post holiday health nut crazy because I just ate my way through California and Mexico" on you, but I might for just a post, or 6.

I saw some Pin or blog post recently showing off a fancy metal lunch container with little silicon cupcake liners to act as separates and a perfectly organized 8 zillion part lunch and all I could think was: I NEED.

So the day after my return to Chiberia I ventured to The Container Store in search of the perfect solution. I found a few and took them home to experiment.

One solution is this 3-1 little lovebug that I am totally obsessed with: Stainless Steele Eco Lunchbox 

The other solution was two separate metal containers - one which is rectangular and has an adjustable divider and one small round one.

I wasn't able to find these silicon cupcake liners  at The Container Store so I just ended up buying regular ones, though one pack is extra large and has a waxy heavy coating on the inside making it a bit sturdier.

So here are some of the lunches I packed last week to be extra good on my first week back to normal life post eating my face off:

First Day at Work: Edamame, Cheddar, Turkey Jerky, Shredded Chicken, Fruit & Nut mix, Unsweetened Applesauce

Day Two: Shredded Chicken & Hummus sando on Ezekiel Bread

Sando with Edamame, Olives, and Fresh Mozz
Day Three: Chicken salad with shredded Brussels for crunch, Edamame, Cheddar, Turkey Jerky, Fruit & Nut mix

Day Four: Working From Home = brekkie of Avocado Toast, and Yogurt Parfait!
Day Four: Working From Home = lunch of leftover flank steak, leftover kale, edamame, fresh mozz, & hummus on Ezekiel toast
Day Four: Working From Home = Dinner of Spaghetti Squash and Turkey Sausage Bolognese
