Meals on the Go

I had to say goodbye to my little sister this afternoon. 😦

 

Before we left for the airport, I made a Mexican themed lunch:

I had a cup of black bean soup

…and a salad.

My salad included:

  • romaine lettuce
  • green bell pepper
  • crumbled chips
  • Grilled chicken breast
  • cheese
  • salsa

On the way to test number two of the day, I ate a CLIF bar mini in the car. I almost brought a Pumpkin pie Kashi bar, but I have missed the Brownie! Jason always steals them, but this one was buried in the bar stash! 😀

I also stopped at D and D for some Latte love! 99 cents, can’t beat it!

I packed my dinner in a little Fresh n’ Fit container that I have actually had for a while, but never use. It comes with an ice pack, and individual compartments for snacks. In case anyone is wondering, I found it at Target.

In the main compartment I packed a turkey and cheese sandwich. The ice pack fits over the sandwich area, and rests on little “shelves” so it doesn’t squish the sandwich.

I filled the top two containers with fruits and veggies: one with carrots and peas, and one with strawberries.

Each of those fits into the groves on the ice pack…

…and closes with the lid!

It kept my food cold (for 6 hours) without having to pack the whole bulky lunch cooler! I really liked using it!

What do you use to carry around your meals or snacks when you’re on the go?

 

Edited to add: I’m currently nibbling on Mickey’s Ear… ok… putting down the rice krispie treat…
