Cleaning Eating Tosca Reno says, "Pack a cooler."

I was reminded today during my Mama Bootcamp class the importance of packing a cooler.  That can be anything from a small lunch box to an actual cooler.  What she means by pack a cooler is to bring your food with you.  Don't wing it when you're running errands or even going to work.  I find my fast food choices aren't healthy, convenient or even something I want to eat.  I've packed sandwiches, salads, smoothies or just a simple piece of fruit, cut up veggies or my Tosca Reno's Power balls.  In my lunch box or cooler they don't get hot in the car.  Keep in mind that if you have something that might get dangerous if it's not refrigerated properly do some temperature checks and some experimenting before you leave it in the car all day.

A few years ago I bought myself my own lunch box.  I'd occasionally use one of my kid's lunchbox when need be.  Usually though they'd be dirty from them using them and not taking care of them.  My kids were plenty old enough to clean their own lunch boxes.  So, I thought I'm going to buy my own.  Only I needed to get one that my kids wouldn't see as the only clean lunch box in the house to use.  I bought a big honking pink lunch box.  Not my favorite color, but DEFINITELY not either of my kid's either.  Neither of them would be caught dead carrying my lunch box and that was my plan all along.

I was at the store today and right now is the perfect time to buy oneself a lunch box.  Barring they don't have family member who'll want to use their lunch box.  So, many fun choices to make Clean Eating a necessity rather than a chore.

Sorry for the crappy picture, but you get the idea.  Many fun choices from which to pick.  Star Wars, Spiderman, Hello Kitty, Mario Brothers and even Pink Disney Princesses if you need to keep your hubby and kids from borrowing your lunch box.
