Good morning. Looking for the ultimate Lunch Box to take to work. THE ULTIMATE
Hey guys good morning I will be starting some part-time work soon and it is imperative that I keep up with my eating plan (i am on a weight-gain diet) so I am researching lunch boxes. I am looking for that ULTIMATE lunch box, one where I could cook up some pasta and a salad, throw it in there and 4-8 hours later pull out a warm pasta and cold salad.
Ideally it wouldn't have "set" storage containers, as I find those extremely too small for my liking. For example I would be throwing in 1/2lb. of pasta at least, a huge huge portion of salad, and some extra appetizers, and desert. I would also need something where I could pour say a 1qt amount of soymilk into and have this stay cold, or simply use the tetrapak the soymilk originally came in and have this still be cold. .
I would rather this be way too big and huge then too small.
I have done my research however I find it difficult because most have like I said set portions for people trying to lose weight and nothing is big enough!
Hoping to hear back from you guys I will be needing this soon, I really appreciate it :) Have a good weekend
How about buying a collapsible cooler and filling it wih your own containers?
You might need two - one for hot and one for cold. Or just zap the hot stuff in the microwave if you can/want.
Alternative - if you can. Buy a mini fridge and leave it at work by your desk/in your office. That is for your cold stuff and then get a cooler for your hot stuff.
Here are a couple of nice ones:
However, I think you are going to have to use multiple items for keeping things hot and cold. Thermos makes some nice small, medium and large containers that keep things hot for a long time. Good luck.
