A Healthy Lunch with Bentgo

Bento boxes are some of my favorite food products for adults and kids alike. They help to reinforce the concept of portion, while displaying your food in an orderly and appealing way.

The folks at Bentgo were nice enough to let me test drive their new Bentgo Salad box and I have to say I'm already a fan. The box comes in four fresh colors and is made with BPA free plastic. The 54 oz main compartment holds a generous amount of greens, while the divided insert has two 5 oz compartments, one 10 oz compartment and a place in the middle for the 3 oz, no-leak dressing container.

The top layer holds a reusable plastic fork, with room for a napkin and is protected by a clear sanitary cover. The layers all fit together in one sleek and attractive container, air-tight to keep your grub nice and fresh until lunchtime. As of last night, they were on sale for 50% off, so if you're interested, I would snag one while they are so cheap!

Bentgo also has a regular Bento box for adults and one for kids,  which I will definitely be getting for Nixon when he moves on to solids! Follow them on Instagram @bentgolunch, where they are always posting beautiful food photos, if you need a little inspiration for lunchtime!

Taking 10 minutes at the end of today to pack a healthy lunch for tomorrow is a small step with a big payoff. This salad box makes it easy and beautiful. I broke mine in last week and made a Southwestern grilled chicken salad.

- half of one avocado, cubed

- half of one large tomato, cubed
