Metabolic balance loves to share information on how you can eat healthier. If you are taking salads to work, here are a few ways that you can take a salad to the office in style.

Iris Lunch boxes.  I have two of these with different coloured polka dots. They don’t look like a lunch box which is great. Everything inside the bag is insulated and the plastic containers wash easily.

Trespass metal boxes

These metal boxes work great for salads but don’t put anything too wet inside. The boxes have a little rubber sealant between the metal cover and the box but I wouldn’t depend on it to keep liquid from coming out when the box is being thrown around in your bag.
