Paleo Lunches in a Box

We all know that lunches can get tricky on Paleo. With sandwiches being out of the question, it’s easy to start thinking that the options are very limited, but it doesn’t have to be like that. Using bento boxes makes it easy to pack fun, tasty and varied lunch options that can be enjoyed cold. They are good for all kinds of salads, leftover cooked meats, dips, condiments, roasted or raw vegetables, fruits, …

We like to use the non-reactive stainless steel ones. They are great for kids and adults alike, and bound to make your coworkers jealous of your healthy lifestyle. Bring more than one if you have a large appetite or on very active days and try to keep them refrigerated when out for extended periods of time.
