Despite the fact that she worked full-time and was a single mom in my early elementary school days, my mom was good at school lunches when I was a kid. REALLY good. No sloppy slap-dash PB & J’s. She always found the time to show her love with apples that were never bruised, crackers that were always crispy and never forgot heart-covered napkins on Valentines Day.
Lunch is STILL an event for me – even though I work from home. Taking time to cut tomatoes with the right knife and spread that nice grainy mustard is relaxing and helps me slow down during busy work days and be present.
I know I could eat standing in front of the fridge (and obsessing about my next work task) but taking that minute to do it right is kind of a meditation for me. Because lunch should be about taking a break, right?
So in this spirit, I created this washable, eco-style lunch bag. Use a fabric you love. I hope it will remind you to take a deep breath –– and really enjoy your break!
