Laptop Lunch #1

Do I include the laptop lunch as part of my food journal or do I do it on its own? Not sure so I’ll try on its own for now so that I can find them more easily (and in case other folks are looking for them too). But I’ll have a picture on the food journal too.

It came. I was so excited to use it that I didn’t even wait for a full dishwasher load. I washed it by hand! Come on. That says a lot.

I had no idea what I was going to put in it. I had Oven fried chicken but there’s no way the pieces would fit. I could take the meat off but the leftovers are too fresh to do that! I had not planned so just went through the fridge.

I made it completely the night before and here it is ready for work the next morning.

And here it is open but with the tops on. I always wonder how people do the tops so I took a picture of how I did them. I followed the directions and put the lidded container in the back and had the tab pointing toward the middle.

  2. May I ask where you got that laptop lunch tray thingy? That looks awesome to pack my daughter’s food in. I live with her and her husband and two nights a week she has to stay over on the Island she works on and I pack all her food: 3 breakfasts,3 lunches and two suppers. She is at her goal weight and wants to stay there. I still have a long way to go.

    I like your site here.

  3. Joanharvest, Thank you for the compliment! This is my first “bento” style lunchbox. It’s from laptop lunches which I found by going to veganlunchbox. Some retail stores carry the laptop lunch but none near me. Beware! Bento-style meals can become addictive! 😉 Fun, but addictive.

  4. […] roll-up disaster I tried to make a PB&J roll-up so that I can cut it up for my Laptop Lunch. It was a disaster! My little cutting board looked like I just butchered something. The spewed guts […]
