There are not many healthy restaurant options for travelers and after about 3 weekends, we pretty much exhausted all we could tolerate. Naturally (here I go again, hatching an idea!) I decided I would pack our meals and snacks for the road.
When pastors are done preaching, they are often tired, drained even. I wanted to be sure to include power packed, good tasting, and filling food for the road. I was looking for healthy, easy to eat for the driver and the passenger, energy packing whole foods. Plus, we were finding that fast foods made us feel lethargic and not at all energized when finally arrived home - not a feeling we liked.
My objective was to cook fresh and pack with freshness and wholeness in mind. I started researching and found the EasyLunchbox System. I was immediately excited. Waste-free lunch boxes, with their own cooler that keeps them upright, and can support a healthy and green lifestyle. This is exactly what I was hoping for! I contacted Kelly Lester, mom and CEO of Easy Lunchboxes immediately.
So, I got my Bento boxes and my cooler bag. Four boxes with brightly colored lids, and nice sized compartments, and a spacious cooler bag.
The first Sunday road trip, I made chicken wraps - a recipe I created; organic baby carrots and kalamata olives, and cut fresh strawberries.
I filled two containers with those foods. In the other two containers I put a combination of sliced oranges, bananas, glazed pecans, celery sticks, carrots, cream cheese, and an extra chicken wrap.
Doesn't that sound like a lot of food? It is, and it's all healthy. On that trip, we ate fruit for breakfast with our personal coffee and teas, and power snacked after eating our wraps on the way back. Everything was perfect and fresh. I was sold on Bento boxes. My head was full of ideas on how to use them to pack school lunches. I love the way the Bento boxes fit perfectly in the bag and don't shift or fall over. They are not guaranteed leak proof, so they recommend their cooler bag since it's made to fit. I haven't had a leak yet!
The colorful lids snap so easily into place, and they wash up just as easily. We even pack them up when we will be running errands all day.
I highly recommend the EasyLunchBox System. If you want to order it now, you can go to Amazon.com, where they are a consistent bestseller in the category "lunchboxes", and you will get free shipping, or you can order them on the EasyLunchBox website.
