I take my lunch to work almost every single day. Sometimes it’s something simple like a sandwich, and sometimes it’s something more involved like my favorite pasta (recipe below). While I love taking my lunch, I do NOT love losing my lunch containers during my commute or having them sometimes never make it out of the work dishwasher…or the struggle to find the matching lid.
The folks at Dixie understand this and have created an awesome solution: Dixie Quicktakes. The Quicktakes have attached lids, are BPA free and are recyclable AND affordable enough to throw out after using. I’ve been using them for my lunch this week and for breakfast (pictured below):
Did I mention that Quicktakes are microwavable? Yep. They really are the most convenient for any lifestyle because you can choose to reuse them or throw them away after one use — it’s up to you! And because the lid is attached, you don’t have to worry about losing it or not being able to find the matching lid (story of my LIFE!). If you have kids, I imagine you could also use these for arts and crafts projects — I’m not really crafty so that’s not my thing but I know some of Y’ALL could do that 🙂
Another awesome thing is that Quicktakes are super easy to buy on Amazon. I’m basically obsessed with Amazon and buy a ton of stuff off the site, so I was happy I could purchase my Quicktakes there. I also read a lot of the Amazon reviews before buying. You can read those here.
Check out this video showing all the ways you can use Quicktakes. I’m so glad I discovered this product, especially given that as I mentioned I take my lunch almost everyday. Speaking of lunch, here’s the recipe for my favorite summer pasta that I promised:
- 1 box whole wheat pasta
- 1 ball fresh mozzarella
- 1 package of basil
- A handful of cherry tomatoes, diced
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cook your pasta, according to package directions.
- While the pasta is cooking, chop up your mozzarella, basil and tomatoes.
- Once pasta is cooked, strain it and throw it into a large bowl.
- Toss with cheese, basil and tomatoes.
- Drizzle olive oil over pasta mixture and add salt and pepper to taste.
- This pasta goes well with chicken, or sausage as well!
I definitely took some of that pasta for lunch this week in my Quicktakes. And then, when I didn’t feel like bringing the container home, I tossed it. Easy peasy! I know I can’t be the only one who struggles with the never ending lid craziness — check out Quicktakes on Amazon and buy them for your family right here!
Do you take your lunch? How do you transport it??
