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.
We’re committed to a full month of home-packed lunches here at Healthy Eats — that means we’re not only bringing our own lunches each day along with you, but we’re offering tips, recipes and ideas on keeping your lunch healthy and exciting. We’re also giving you the chance to win cool containers in which to pack your healthy lunch.
This week, we’re giving away a lunch container from black+blum called box appetit. It’s more like a ceramic bowl than your standard food container and with better functionality, plus it’s quite packable. The clear, ‘glass like’ lid locks for tight seal, and inside the box, theres a separate dipping area where you can put your salad dressing, soy sauce or hot sauce. It also has a removable inner dish so you can microwave one portion of your meal, and keep the other cold. The box is BPA free, microwave and dishwasher safe and comes with its own matching fork.
Want one? Buy it here or enter 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 Monday, September 19 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 8 and 10 a.m. EST on September 19. 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.
