LAPTOP LUNCHES – BENTO BOX REVIEW

8 Jun

I have long been wanting to get a bento box system after seeing all of Shelly’s Bento Box Meals on The World According to Eggface.  Small portions have never looked so yummy! I just had no idea where to buy one, so imagine my excitement when LaptopLunches.com  sent me this rad Bento Box system to review:

Urban Swing Lunch Kit 2.0 – Plum 

Features:

  • Removable inner containers can accommodate a variety of food sizes
  • Tray-like feel makes lunch fun
  • 3 sealable lids prevent wet foods from leaking onto other foods
  • Single unit eliminates the mess of jumbled containers
  • Convenient size fits in backpacks and most lunchboxes
  • Containers are microwave safe (not lids)
  • Containers and lids are dishwasher safe–top rack only, NO heat boosters

From the website:  Stay mobile with this Urban Swing Lunch Kit! It is perfect for the working professional on the go! The insulated sleeve keeps food fresh for hours and the collapsible side drink pouch is ideal for bringing your water bottle (not included) with you!  Includes: the Laptop Lunches® Bento Lunch Box 2.0 with a plum outer container and magenta inner containers, a plum messenger bag with a fuchsia insulated bento sleeve, and an all-stainless fork and spoon set.

The timing of receiving this could not have been more perfect:  I started my new gig teaching voice and piano at The Real School of Music, and because I teach and travel at multiple schools, I need to have solid gear to travel around with.  This seriously rocks my world, I love it!

For a weight loss surgery post-op patient like me, small portions are key.  I’m one of those people that needs variety at almost every meal (hence my love of buffets in my former life), and all the little compartments allow me to take small portions of multiple things to eat:  hooray!   Not only that, but it includes an insulated zip storage unit, a fork and spoon, and  a super-cute carry bag that could totally double as a pocketbook.

I’ve used it every day I’ve gone to work, and my students have all commented on how cool (and pretty) the system is.  I feel like the kid at school who has the most popular lunchbox.  Except I’m 40, and when I type that out it sounds a little pathetic.  lol  But seriously, my bento system ROCKS, yo!

AND

You know I wouldn’t be posting this unless I had a nice little discount to offer you too!  Use the coupon code DIVAT, and get 10% off your purchase – good for one week only starting tomorrow ( 6/8/12).  Go and get yourself some lunch happiness!
