Gavin’s New Lunchbox

KitchenHacks is back! And married!

Now that Gavin and I are married, I’ve been assuming primary lunch-packing duties, especially while I wait to start my new job.  I tired of packing him a container of leftovers and baggie of tortilla chips pretty quickly, mainly because I felt like it was a crappy lunch.  So I convinced him that he should get a Laptop Lunchbox like mine, except in a manlier color.  His is black with dark blue inside containers and a spare set of red containers.

Lessons I have learned so far packing lunches for someone pickier than myself:

  • An apple with peanut butter can be marketed as a main dish similar to a PBJ without the bread.
  • Snap peas and cheese without crackers do not make Gavin happy.
  • Salads with leftover meat on top are a super-hit and lead to zero food waste.
  • Lids are appreciated on all containers to avoid leakage (even on things I wouldn’t always pack a lid on).
  • The more fruit, the better.  Nuts are good too.
  • Hard-boiled eggs work as part of the lunch in a pinch.

I think overall his lunches have had a lot more variety than they did before and definitely contain more fruits and vegetables.

Gavin’s thoughts: “They are super good and more nutritious than before.”

We’ll be posting some pictures of our lunches throughout the summer!

    So tortilla chips are not one of the food pyramid groups?
