You’re not going to get it stuffed with Pyrex dishes, but I will add my favorite snack bar.
Do you know what kind of snack I love?!
I hope so, because to enter you have to answer that question in the comments and then get social for more entries!

When I go to Target I scan through the container section, which is in the same aisle as plastic bags. I try not to buy too many plastic bags, but sometimes they’re handy for portioning out freezer foods.
Thanks to social media, I am aware of the 21 Day Fix diet from BeachBody. Until I actually looked at it, I didn’t realize it is very similar to what a couple of dietician have shared with me.
The appealing thing is you eat protein, carbs, vegetables, fruit, healthy fats and oils. What you get with 21 Day Fix is using color-coded containers for each of those categories. If you’re really good at Pinterest, you can find enough resources to great your own bootleg version.
Target sells these color snacks bags, which are great for meal prep portioning out protein (red), carbs (yellow), vegetables (green) and fruit (blue). Don’t forget to use Target’s Cartwheel app for a discount.
Also, at Target these portion control bags. I love trail mix, but if I don’t pour out a certain amount, I’ll shove a bunch in my mouth. And I make my own trail mix instead of buying the kind in the pre-portioned bags, but that works well for some people.
Hopefully both of these affordable options help the lunch packer who wants to practice portion control, but doesn’t want to use plastic containers or reusable bags.

There are weeks when whatever I’ve made for lunches just isn’t cutting it flavor-wise. I trip through the frozen food aisle always makes me eye light up looking for something that seems fancier than my usual lunches, but can be packed.
Enter bold frozen meals at home, like Chili’s at Home Chicken Fiesta Rice Bowl. It’s like eating out, but in a packed lunch.
Some of the entrees are single serve and since there is always a lunchtime rush on the microwaves, I like to prep my meal at home first and transfer it to a dish to pack in my lunch.
When Chili’s at Home says they have big and bold flavors, they weren’t kidding! This rice bowl added new flavor to my usual lunch routine!
As I mentioned some of the Chili’s at Home products are single serve, but others are multi-serve meals so you can share with a friend or have it in multiple lunches.
Next time you’re cruising through the grocery store, keep an eye for these Chili’s at Home products:
1. Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese
2. Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo
3. Cheesy Chicken Pasta Florentine
4. Chicken Bacon Ranch
5. Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl
6. Island Chicken & Rice
7. Mango Chicken with Rice
8. Pepper Jack Mac ‘N’ Cheese
1. Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese
2. Chicken Bacon Ranch
3. Chicken Fajita Rice
4. Nacho Potatoes with Beef & Bacon
5. Seasoned Chicken Bites with Honey Chipotle Sauce
What bold Chili’s at Home flavor will you add to your packed lunch?

Disclosure: Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market compensated me for this post but all opinions are mine.
I’m always on the lookout for new lunch bags, lunch boxes, snack bags and containers that will make lunch packing easier or better for anyone.
I recently found the Solvetta Flat Box Lunch Box. Have you see this?
Solvetta Flat Box Lunch Box is the winner of the Innovation Award from the International Housewares Association and I can see why, it is a lunch bag that becomes a place mat! I immediately thought of a former coworker who bought a place mat to lunch.
It is 100% machine washable, which I appreciate as someone who does clean her lunch bags, but basing on what I see in the work fridge is that not everyone thinks about it.
Are you sold? You can buy yours from the Solvetta Flat Box Lunch Box website
Other features include being PVC and BPA free, heat resistant nepoprene and has been tested for lead safety and phthalates. And the feature that matters to most is its ability to hold a lot of stuff! I put a stack of Pyrex and then a stack of plastic containers (not shown) and it accommodates plenty.
, Amazon sells them or you can buy directly from Solvetta.
