It’s NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. For the month of November, I’m going to post every day. This is day 14.
I bring my lunch to work most every day, and I imagine many of you do as well. I’m a regular tupperware toting commuter, finding my bag weighed down with containers for lunch, snack, and other goodies. So I probably eat more than you might believe and I like to keep foods separated appropriately, I also try to keep everything within the confines of my giant purse. I’m sure I’m not alone in my lunch-carrying ways.
For the past few years, I’ve also been bringing my own cutlery as well. Most lunch-bringers that I encounter forget this extra component. In our kitchen at work, everyone is microwaving home-made goodies and then reaching for a fork or spoon from our collection of disposable silverware. I used to do that as well and then one day, encountered a solution. So, if you’d like to spear your food with something a little more sturdy, comfortable and durable than a plastic fork you should give these a try. They’re lightweight so I don’t even know I’m carrying them (what’s a bamboo fork next to a container of soup?), and they come in a pouch to keep the utensils clean, contained, and easy to find.
It used to be incredibly hard to find reusable silverware, but now you can spot To-Go Ware in lots of places, like your local Whole Foods, even.To-Go Ware has become part of the standard contents of my purse. I love sitting down at my desk and pulling out my fancy bamboo fork and knife. They feel nice and smooth in my hand, have no rough or sharp edges that plastic-ware sometimes have, and keep disposable knives/forks/spoons out of our landfills. I also love that they come with chopsticks – perfect for the leftover stir-fry lunches.
NB: I have not been compensated for this post in any way. I purchased To-Go Ware on my own and have been using the same set faithfully for several years. I’m sharing this because I’m just that excited about my bamboo silverware.
