  1. I have a question. I am wanting to start doing this for myself but I am wondering... once you are at work, don't you want to heat of the stir fry? How do you heat up just the stir fry and not the blueberries and pretzels?


  2. Hi, Rose! Great question. Usually I the fruit in silicone cups so I can easily take it out to reheat my lunch. After taking this picture, I noticed I didn't do put the blueberries and pretzels in silicone cups--which I did right after taking the picture, but just didn't retake it. :)

  3. Well that makes sense! lol Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to start making Bento lunches!

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
