Tips for Packing an Awesome Lunch this Year

by Cascade Ice on January 7, 2020


It’s that time of year again, where everyone is able to refocus and set goals for the months ahead. But, life inevitably gets busy, so why not do everything you can to make achieving your healthy goals easier on yourself?

Packing a healthy lunch each day is a great way to make sure you make better food and drink choices. Here are a few tips to help you pack a healthy, delicious lunch this year: 

  • Meal prep – Each week, include lunches in your meal planning, even if it’s last night’s leftovers. Knowing what’s to come will keep you from making unexpected (and sometimes less healthy) choices for lunch.
  • Find the perfect containers – Whether it’s layering a salad in a large jar, or finding the perfect bento box to contain all your favorite healthy lunch foods, the right containers can make all the difference! Check out the selection at Amazon or other online retailers, or even asks friends what they love. 
  • Remind yourself – Forgetting your lunch at home is such a pain! Set an alarm on your phone or leave it near the door so that you don’t forget it when you leave for the day. 
  • Don’t forget a “treat” – Let’s face it, humans are programmed to seek rewards for good behaviour. That’s why it’s actually a great idea to give yourself small “treats” when you make healthy choices over not-so-healthy ones. Cascade Ice Sparkling Water comes in 18 different flavor varieties so you’ll never get bored of the taste, and you don’t have to worry about added sugar or calories! You could even pack yourself a small piece of chocolate. Have fun with it!
