What are the benefits of a bento style lunch box?

Adopting a reusable bento box means adopting a new on-the-go meal partner that makes your daily life easier in many ways!
A bento lunch box helps you save time by preparing your meal the day before and bringing it to the office the next day, thus avoiding shopping during lunch breaks.
It can also be used for meal prep or batch cooking, to prepare meals for the whole week during the weekend and free up time after work (discover batch cooking recipes on our blog!).
A bento box also allows you to keep control of what you eat: by preparing your own meals with love at home, you can use local and seasonal ingredients.
Made with lasting materials, monbento lunch boxes also help you reduce waste: they can be reused for many years! They even allow you to limit food waste at the restaurant, by placing your leftovers directly in your bento box, to be able to enjoy them the next day at home, at the office or on on the holiday road.

How do you pick a good bento box?

The best lunch box will be the one that fits your daily needs and habits. Whether you prefer your meals to be perfectly organised or when all the ingredients are mixed together to create new flavours; whether you tend to eat on the road or can lean on refrigerators and microwaves; whether you prefer to have several small snack boxes or one lunch box that gathers all your meal; or whether you are used to preparing your meals in advance or prefer to have a practical container to carry with you at all times to pick up your orders at your favourite restaurant ... one thing is for sure: your lunch box will follow you day after day, in all usual and exceptional situations, so take all the time you need to choose your new to-go lunch partner!
