bon appetit lunch box review

As I'm doing weight watchers I bought an exciting new lunch box for taking to work.  It's much better than a normal tupperware box as it has special compartments to keep your food from going soggy or to keep things separate until you're ready to eat them.











I bought this from Next and it was £12

It has a really good seal to keep eveyrthing in the box and even comes with a fork.  You can also put it in the microwave and it has a little outlet for the steam.  




So far I've used it to make the huge potato salad your can see here and also to take a prawn salad sandwich whilst keeping the tomato and the prawns in sauce separate from the bread and the rest of the salad. 

I know it's quite pricey for a lunch box but I think it's worth it and I hope it'll help me to make more effort to take lunch to work and to make more adventurous things.

What do you think?  Any suggestions for healthy lunches I can take to work in my new lunch box?

  1. That's a great idea! I've never seen that in Next. Your potato salad looks scrummy! x

  3. @zoe - I think it might only be in the catalogue actually, I've never seen it in the shop either x

    @daisychain - it's so much cooler than a normal tupperware! Shame it doesn't seem to come in other colours!

  6. @stundon - that's a good idea, thanks. I thought I didn't like cous cous, but I tried it again at my friend's house and it was nice. Hadn't thought of it for lunch!

    @pyxiee - I didn't know they sell it in Lakeland. Let me know if there are any other colours =)

  8. i love the idea of this. i'm so bored of having a sandwich every lunchtime. you could use the separate compartments to put croutons in that go well with a cheese salad. yummy.
