When I'm going to be away from home for any length of time, I pack my food in this Thermos, I have two of them...purchased at Target. It keeps my food hot or cold for a really long time. If you pack your food hot, the lid will be difficult to remove, it seals really tight. So I bring along one of those rubber flower jar openers to open it easily.
Today my husband and I attended all day marriage communication workshop and they served a steak and chicken burrito lunch, coffee, donuts, and soda...so glad I had my own food! I was the only one who brought food and I definitely got some looks. The next meeting will be in the middle of May and I can't wait for them to see how nice and thin I will be!
Lately my favorite has been a warm red potato salad with raw green vegetables and a homemade mustard and vinegar dressing. I also pack a couple of bananas along, nature's fast food!http://www.thermos.com/products/vacuum- ... spoon.aspx
