Malaika Gordon might pack her own lunch every day, but the meals are far from routine.First, there’s that colourful Bento box. Then there’s the size of the boxes themselves, holding just the right portions of food.
We tapped Gordon to share her favourite snapshots from her blog A Packable Feast to inspire you to pack your own lunch. Read on for her excellent tips.
Daily lunch runs to Pret A Manger were putting a cramp in Gordon's food budget. She knew it was time to start packing her own lunch.
Gordon enjoyed documenting the lunches so much, her family and friends told her to start her own blog.
The rules: Every lunch must have a protein, two fruits or veggies, plus a delicious homemade treat for dessert
Gordon likes planning her lunches over the weekend so she won't splurge during the week. She'll cook everything Saturday, then box it all up on Sunday.
