Guess which food blogger completely failed to post this week? Oh, that would be me. And not for lack of food, either! I owe you all some salads next week, and by then, hopefully I will even have made extra-awesome versions.
In the meantime, here’s a peace offering: a roundup of adorable, sustainable, or otherwise awesome containers for carrying food that I’ve come across lately.
Box Appetit has two smaller containers that can sit inside the main one, plus its own fork. The inner containers are removable, and the whole thing is BPA-free. The only downside is that it’s not super-well-suited to standards like sandwiches.
I’ve had a box from Laptop Lunches for years. It’s great because the multiple containers encourage you to pack a varied meal, and I love the look of the new, adult-sized Bento 2.0 kit. These are also BPA-free and made in the States.
My eco-crunchiest lunch box might be the two-tier classic tiffin from To Go Ware, which is made of stainless steel. The big bottom container is so perfect for salads that I nearly always include one, and the top one is still big enough to hold noodles or protein + grain. Plus, the company now sells steel dressing containers too!
I’ve just come across the adorable stainless-steel containers by Lunchbots. LUNCHBOTS! Is there a better name in the whole world? Even without the steel top (which they have!), I was sold.
Goodbyn might win the prize for being most adorable. Also, it has stickers. And, on a more practical note, a built-in drink container. It can go in the dishwasher and is recycleable. It also has five different food compartments, for those of you who want your salad not to touch your banana.
