Boxed Lunch: Monbento Will Change Your Mid-Day Meal

What It Is: The ‘bento box’ trend isn’t 100% new when it comes to cooking and dining, but if you want to be brought up to speed, the gist of it involves borrowing from a Japanese fast food staple, the bento box, which pairs a number of smaller dishes into one satisfying meal. In other words – it’s a far cry from the typical North American lunch of a sandwich, piece of fruit, and dessert. Grownups and kids alike are borrowing from the trend with the help of bento box lunchbox makers like Monbento, which offers a range of compartmentalized boxes you can actually customize based on your needs. Have a mile-high sandwich? No problemo. Need to keep your dressing separate from your salad before noon? Separate containers make it a snap. Measuring your daily macros? Use different compartments to ensure you’re getting the right balance of nutrients. With a range of cool colours and styles to choose from, plus extra accessories that work extra well for lunch on the go, Monbento is the perfect way to actually make you look forward to the oft-maligned mid-day meal know as lunch.

Who It’s For: Your kids, as a hip way to go back-to-school. Your spouse, to curb their tendency to hit the good court at lunch. Your workout buddy, to stay motivated and healthy for every meal of the day.

What It Costs: Prices vary quite a bit depending on what you’re looking for, but generally speaking the boxes are $45 each.

Where It’s At: Monbento ships to Canada for $14.99. You can also shop their products at the likes of Indigo.
