Lunchtime Tools

By avelyne | In Health & Lifestyle | on October 18, 2013


If you’ve followed our posts long enough, you know that we try to be as “green” as possible at our gym.  We encourage recycling, using reusable water bottles, posted on the disposal of electronic waste as well as hazardous household waste, and the list goes on and on…  With that said, I’d like to talk to you about 2 eco friendly lunchtime tools to keep your lunches fresh.

The first is the Salad Shaker from Fit & Fresh (shown below).  I picked this up over the weekend to try to carry a few more greens with me on my local trips.  I used to toss a Ziploc bag of spinach in my bag along with a few other fixings and would squeeze lemon on it as a “dressing”  but my greens would get crushed in my lunch bag, leaving my greens wilted. This past week I used the salad shaker and was pleased with the results.  My salad stayed fresh and it was still chilled after 4 hours.  The Salad Shaker is a decent size that holds 4 cups and fits well in my lunch bag.  It comes with a built in freezer pack that snaps into place under the lid as well as a spoon and fork on top of the lid. The container is BPA free and the freezer pack is non-toxic.

The 2nd lunch container I purchased over the weekend is made by LexNGo and for me the main selling point was that it was collapsible. Once you’ve eaten your lunch, the container collapses down to 1/2 the size to save space.  The container I purchased also came with its’ own “spork” built in to the lid.  The lunch box is made of BPA-free silicone and is also bacteria resistant.  My only gripe about this container is that since it is designed to collapse, I wouldn’t recommend storing foods that can be easily bruised, like avocados.

Both of these lunch containers were purchased from HomeGoods but can be found online and in various sizes.  I’ve also heard really good things about the stainless steel bento style boxes with locking lids but have yet to purchase any.  If you have a reusable lunch container that you found works well, please post to comments and share your finds.  With any of the aforementioned lunch containers, the message stays the same, reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating the use of disposable containers.

On another note, we’d like to wish our 3 teams participating in the Randy Simmons Fitness Challenge lots of luck  this weekend!  Have fun guys and we can’t wait to hear about the results!
