10 Best Ways to Pack Your Lunch


Hey Food Finders!


Last week I wrote 10 Quick & Healthy Packed Lunch Ideas with lots of easy mix-and-match mains, sides, snacks, and drinks to create a fun and satisfying lunch to keep you power-fueled throughout your day. But you HAVE to have something functional and stylish to carry your lunches in!

Now I wanted to tell you about 10 Great Accessories to use to PACK your lunch! In the past, I’ve always used Ziplock baggies, but they aren’t very eco-conscious, so I have researched further to find some really great reusable items to try.  I really love the divided containers that are so popular now. There are sections for everything and it’s built in portion control. There are also reusable “ziplock” type bags that are really cool, and triple walled Thermoses that will keep your coffee and soups hot, and your water and drinks cold! So read on to check out my current favorites!
