Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog :).
The lunches that are in the plastic bento boxes I eat cold or at room temperature. They normally say that they are safe to heat up in the microwave w/out the lid, but I prefer not to heat up any foods at all in those! The lunches that you see in my much older entries - in the glass containers or Tupperwares, I heat up unless they’re meant to be eaten cold.
For the lunches in bento boxes, I make them the night before and stick them in the fridge. If the lunch has something that has perishable items like cheese, I put them in a fridge at work. If it’s, say rice or noodles, I keep them at my desk. The veggie sticks & fruit still stay cool by noon when I eat.
I would highly recommend reading Just Bento’s lunch safety tips too :).
Aw! Thanks for the kind words! I love cooking for others too. I hope my lunch pics offer a bit of inspiration :). Thanks for reading (or rather looking? LOL) my blog!
