We’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers to host a Brown-Bag Challenge, a month-long initiative to eat consciously and save money by packing a lunch each weekday instead of eating out. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brownbag.
It’s a brown-bag challenge in name only, we don’t actually expect everyone to tote their lunches in a paper sack each day. It’s fine if you do, but don’t you want to carry your healthy lunch fare in something cute, compact and washable? Of course you do. And now, you have a chance to win this adorable lunch pot from black+blum.
black+blum’s latest lunch-carrying contraption consists of two pots that lock together with a watertight seal. This allows you to pack yogurt and granola separately for a noontime parfait. You can pack a grain salad and a fruit salad right on top of each other, without worrying about the juices of one running into the other. And best of all, the lunch pot comes with a little carry strap and a spork. A spork! That alone makes bringing lunch to work worth it. It’s also dishwasher and microwave safe, and BPA free.
You can buy your own lunch pot from black+blum or enter in the comments for a chance to win your own. Just let us know, in the comments, what you brought for your brown-bag lunch today. The contest starts at 10 a.m. EST today, and ends on Tuesday, September 6 at 10 a.m. EST.
You may only comment once to be considered and you don’t have to purchase anything to win; a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Odds depend on total number of entries. Void where prohibited. Only open to legal residents of 50 U.S. states, D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 to win. For the first day of the giveaway, all entries (answers) must be entered between 10 a.m. EST on September 2 and 10 a.m. EST on September 6. Subject to full official rules. By leaving a comment on the blog, you acknowledge your acceptance to the Official Rules. ARV of each prize: $22.00.

When air-popped, popcorn contains only about 30 calories a cup and also provides a bit of fiber, making it a surprisingly healthy snack. Make a batch with the T-fal Hot Air Popcorn Popper, which can pop just over 4 ounces of popcorn in less than three minutes. (Bonus: The chute dispenses the popped snack directlyRead more
