Review: Easy Lunchboxes and Giveaway!

UPDATE:  This giveaway is now closed.  Since I only had 2 comments, both will be getting the 50% off coupon code!  

It's no secret that I have some, well, anal tendencies.  I prefer to look at it as strong opinions.  Once I hear something is bad for you, I have a hard time knocking it.  Well, with the exception of sugar, of course.  Let's not get carried away.

A couple of years ago, "they" released findings that there were chemicals in plastic that were leeching out into our food and water, Bisphenol-A (BPA).  That's all it took to get me to not use products containing BPA and to avoid putting plastic in the microwave.  I eventually got Wes on board too and he changed his daily water bottle to a BPA-free plastic one.

Surprisingly, it has been difficult to find microwave-safe, BPA-free, lunch plates.  Sure you can find individual containers, but for a family that takes leftovers to work every day, with a meat and 2 sides, we needed something with dividers.  We have been using our old plates and removing the contents to a regular plate before heating but I've been on the quest to find a product that would eliminate that extra step.  Enter Easy LunchBoxes!

I was smitten from the moment I read the words, "BPA FREE!"  I honestly couldn't wait to receive them and start using them (and throw our old ones out).  They are everything I ever dreamed of.  The 3 compartments are the perfect size for our traditional dinners and they also work great for a sandwich and 2 sides.  I'm excited about the possibility of Colin getting to use them for his lunch in a few years when he starts school.  They even offer an insulated lunchbox to carry the containers in if you're so inclined.  

Here's a brief video on the product.

If you're interested in trying them, I'm going to give away 1 coupon code for 50% off.  If you or someone in your family are regular lunch takers, this is the perfect solution for you!  All you need to do is answer the following question in the comment section:

What does your typical lunch consist of?  If you don't eat lunch (shame on you), what do you pack for your children and/or spouse?

Contest will end Thursday, March 3rd at midnight.  Good luck!


  1. These are great! My mom always tells me not to put plastic in the microwave but sometimes at work I am lazy and do it anyway. shame on me. what a great solution! my lunch usually consists of leftovers. This week it has been gumbo and enchiladas. yum.

  2. You know me. Most of the time I prepare a salad because of the health benefits of eating raw food. But I need to experiment with preparing different types of veggie combos and these containers would be lovely.
