Bento Boxes: Ecolunchbox Blue Water Bento on Kickstarter

I have a soft spot for companies that have a story. Whether it’s an interesting beginning, a unique purpose or a high priority on relationships, dealing with fellow humans is always more compelling than dealing with a faceless corporation.

Ecolunchbox has been a very cool company to work with and shop from; their story is that they care, passionately, about the environment. I reviewed their Splash box last year and still use it faithfully. Now they’re coming out with more products from the line–same idea: stainless steel, silicone lids, zero plastic to prevent polluting oceans (the lids themselves are gorgeously ocean-inspired). It’s a genius line, honestly; silicone is better for YOU, too, with no risk of chemicals leaching into your lunch. Here’s what’s new, from their kickstarter page:

Splash Pod™ - A leak-proof snack pod. Two fit inside our original Splash Box perfectly.
Seal Cup™ Solo – A go-to container with a leak-proof, silicone lid for to-go snacks or dips.
Seal Cup™ Trio – A set of three nifty, nesting, round containers in small medium and large.
Look how perfectly the pod fits into the original Splash box!
The round containers nest for easy storage:
I got a chance to play around with them, and I was VERY impressed. I love and appreciate good design, and the lids are just so pretty. Minimalist, geometric, a nod to the ocean–and they snap on easily, which was a drawback of the old splash box for me (which has since been updated!).
Here’s what I packed–which, as you can see, is a TON of food!
More info is here, including specs and closeup shots, and pre-order them here.

Breakfast Food Art with Driscoll’s Berries

Ahhh. Summer.

That’s what little miss says every time we go into Target and lazily lounge on briefly pass by the patio furniture. Sure, it’s raining and 62 degrees outside in the middle of July, but still: Summer. No hectic school schedules. No super strict bedtimes. No hurrying up.

The past month or so has been pretty busy around here with our move (more on that later!), but I’m finally getting back into some food art for the kids. I love the mornings lately, when the kids are at their most rested and we get to figure out the day as we go.

I made this fun plate in partnership with Driscoll’s for their fun Food Art campaign. Little miss is on a big bug kick lately, so it was perfect! Read all about it here: http://www.driscolls.com/community/blog/kids-breakfast. (You’ll want to click over because they’re running a pretty sweet sweepstakes, too!)

Waffle Emojis

It's been a long week. Barfy kids, brutal windchill, more snow, lack of sleep... sometimes, you just gotta throw your hands up and laugh. Life is serious enough as it is, amirite? Serve up a few wafflemojis at home for fun: I used bananas, blueberries and apple peel for the one on the left, and ...
