It's the beginning of a new work/school week tomorrow. Are you stuck in a rut packing the same foods in your lunch day after day? Laptop Lunches, a business started by two women who are making a difference one lunch at a time, sells Bento Lunchboxes with four compartments that encourage you to fill each one with a different food, so lunch may be more nutritionally rounded and an event to look forward to. This system also discourages the use of disposable packaging (e.g. prepackaged single-serving items and plastic sandwich bags) that ends up in the landfill.
The web site has 365 healthy lunch ideas with new menus continually being added. The menus are even grouped by season to utilize what is presently being grown and harvested which makes simple sense and is best for our nutritional needs at different times of the year. You can even sign up to receive a weekly lunch menu. An alternative eco-friendly option that Dick and I use for our lunches is a stainless steel 3-tiered system. Our daughter Heather gave us two of them as a gift that we use continually. Here is a similar one that is available on Amazon.
Dick and I are going fishing tomorrow, so I am heading to the kitchen to pack our lunches... after I soak up some inspiration on Laptop Lunch's web site.
