I have a new plan for lunches: I am going to have a revolving menu and make up three identical lunches (with less quantity for my daughter) every evening/morning. I think this would be a lot more simple if we had some kind of "bento" style lunch box. I've always done better when I have the little spaces to fill up, I prefer not to use plastic bags and plastic wrap, and I like having a hard sided lunch container.
I had gotten a Planet Box lunch box for my daughter years ago, and we all loved it. However, at this point it is simply too small and she needs bigger food servings than it can fit. One lunch and two snacks is impossible with it. They recently came out with a new box with much larger volume, but to get three of the larger boxes and the carrying cases would be over $250 for the three of us, and that is simply NEVER going to happen.
Does anyone have a favorite "bento" style lunch container that would be large enough to feed a hungry adult that is not incredibly expensive? I'd be happy to pay around $30 per container. Ideally I want to stay away from plastic, but I realize that might not be a real possibility.
I'd welcome any ideas or suggestions!
