Executive Lunchbox

Executive Gourmet Lunch

Somewhere around age 20 or so I got my first “professional” job. I began working as a receptionist and have worked since then throughout administration, finance, customer service, sales and marketing. For the past 7 plus years I have been employed as a Sales & Marketing Specialist for the same corporation. In all this time, I have come to realize as so many ensconced in Corporate America have, that the concept of a lunch “hour” is mostly fictional.

Often times when you are part of a scaled down staff, pressed with a heavy workload and tight deadlines you are truly lucky to even get a 15 minute “mental break” at your desk. The reality is often you end up eating and working because you feel obligated and pressured to do so. This is the expectation of the salaried employee after all, right? We can all only hope that we are doing what we love on our quest for that regular paycheck! I look around my cubicle city every day and know I am not alone! :) How about you?

That is of course, you eat and work if you were smart enough to bring your lunch! So yes, this is the way it is, even for me. I admit I slow down a bit and perhaps have a little less focus while I eat but I keep going!

Type, type, bite, type, type, bite!

It helps to have really great food in times like these. A lunch that is easy to eat and packed with nutrition to keep you going and make you feel like a company executive whether you are or not! A lunch that will almost make you feel like you did have a lunch “hour”! OK maybe that is a stretch but I guarantee you will feel better after you have a proper lunch!

I have nicknamed my lunch featured in this post the “Executive Lunchbox”. Packed in my beautiful stainless steel Lunchbots Trio like a gourmet, catered meal ordered in.

This lunchbox is full of variety and contains:

  • 3 Veggie dumplings purchased in the sushi department of my local grocer.
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Colby Jack and Wisconsin Cheddar cheese along with veggie crackers
  • Kiwi, sliced nectarine and 1 whole strawberry
  • Served with low sodium soy sauce on the side

Do you have a heartier appetite? The Lunchbots Trio is now available in a larger “adult” size which is 60% bigger.

Sincerely,
Deb

Lunch QUADrupled: A Lunchbots Review & Giveaway!

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Officially summer is more then half over and we have all begun to turn our attention to the back to school season. For some of us this could not come soon enough! For others it just seems a little TOO soon! Whatever school of thought you are in there is no denying school will be in session soon! We all had better hit the stores!

In all seriousness, inevitably back to school season DOES mean a great spending spree! Many dollars will be spent on pencils, pens, notebooks, clothes, sneakers, backpacks, lunch bags and more! WAIT, don’t forget to budget for lunch containers because this will be the year you pack better, healthier lunches for your kiddos, right? Lunches your children will eat, right? Why not?! It is certainly a worthwhile investment! It does not have to be complicated. With the right containers it can even be fun! You may even be inspired to pack your own lunch.

So what is the right container? Admittedly, I do love me a lunch container but one of my favorite lunch box manufacturers is definitely Lunchbots. So when I was recently given an opportunity to review their Quad container, I was thrilled. I already own other Lunchbots products including the Trio, Duo, Uno and the condiment containers. Certainly I am well versed on this product line. As a matter of fact I previously reviewed the Trio on this blog. This time however, I am here to tell you a little bit about the Lunchbots Quad!

Made of a durable, food grade stainless steel, the 6″ x 5″ x 1.75″ lightweight Quad has four fixed compartments offering you quadruple the options for variety!

quad·ru·ple  adj.

1. Consisting of four parts or members.
2. Four times as much in size, strength, number, or amount.

Believe me, quadruple the variety is not an oversell! The combinations are near endless! Fruits, veggies, nuts, mini sandwiches, salads, lunch meats, olives, hard boiled eggs, pretzels, chips and so on… times four! Ha! Go poke around my blog for more ideas to fill a Lunchbots container! Personally I think these beautiful, shiny containers make everything look appealing but studies do actually confirm that a larger variety of food offered to children is more likely to be eaten. That makes the Quad a clear winner for back to school lunches!

The eco friendly Quad containers are 100% reusable, 100% recyclable and free from BPA. They are top rack dishwasher safe although I do recommend hand washing the colored lids. The compartments control portions and allow the food to remain intact as you packed! These containers do not stain, they do not hold scents and they do not rust. Your children will enjoy these containers for many school years to come and so will you! The Quad fits well in most standard sized lunch bags and is available with either a lime green or stainless steel lid. The Quad is also now available with a yellow silicone band exclusively at Lunchbots.

Just when you think I have run out of good things to say… wait here is one more! Lunchbots has generously agreed to give one of my readers a Quad with a lime green lid just like the one pictured in this post! A retail value of $20.99! The perfect prize for the back to school season! Just follow the instructions below to enter for your chance to win!
