Imagine this scenario: you’re running late, so you make a quick aloo paratha, pack it in your plastic lunchbox, and head out to the office. By the time lunch hour rolls around, you’re starving and ready to chow down on that paratha. But when you pull it out of your plastic lunch box, it’s no longer fresh; it’s dry, cold and just sad, nothing like what it looked like in the morning you prepared. And what’s worst, you look across the table and some other worldly being is opening up an amazing treasure box hoard full of fresh delicious yummies. This is one of the top 10 worst experiences in the world (if you’ve lived through it, you know it to be true).
There is nothing more detrimental to a person’s appetite than an unappealing looking meal. But don’t be fooled by those super appetizing lunches you see across the table. Chances are, those people are not amazing chefs who are studying under Gordon Ramsey. They are just like you. The only difference between them and you is they know the secret to packing a proper lunch. The key is the lunch box. That’s right, if you want an amazing lunch that tastes fresh and looks amazing – you need to start by getting the right lunch box.
What is the RIGHT Lunchbox Exactly?
Ok, truth be told, there is no “right” lunchbox, there is just the right lunchbox for you and your needs. If you’re a soup person a lunchbox with lots of different compartments is probably not for you. And, you necessarily won’t carry soup every day to work. So, you will have to look for a lunchbox that will work for your soup days and other days as well!
But generally speaking, every RIGHT lunchbox has three characteristics: 1) It is insulated. 2) It is properly compartmentalized. 3) It is easy to clean and carry.
No matter which lunchbox you buy, you want to make sure it’s insulated. The insulation keeps your food at the right temperature and stops it from going stale. It’s responsible for that fresh food taste that your baggie sandwich or dry roti just can’t imitate.
Stainless steel is the best material for any lunchbox. Plastic containers will contaminate your food and bleed toxins into it. And stainless steel is way more durable than any other material. Also, stainless steel lunchboxes are easy to clean and easy to carry!
There are so many different types of lunchbox designs out there, that you’re sure to find the right one for yourself. Make sure your food looks good and doesn’t interfere with each other in the wrong way by buying the one with the right set of compartments. Lunchboxes with removable partitions work well if you like to carry variety a single day and choose to carry a simple meal the next day.
When you choose a lunchbox, it is important to find one that will help you stay organized. You obviously don’t want to lug around a lot of boxes in a cloth bag. Choose a lunchbox that comes with a smart bag or one that fits easily into your backpack or office bag.
Choosing a lunchbox well is important. A smart lunchbox allows you to have a hearty meal, a fresh and warm one that supercharges you and brings a smile on your face.
