No Waste Lunch {2}

Do you guys remember a few weeks ago when I told you about my green food storage problem?  Well the very next day Woot solved my problem by having glassware for sale the very next day (nope I’m not joking.) So check out my new containers!

So I’m trying to do no waste lunches, but its hard to remember everything. I’m finally remembering my bamboo silverware everyday but now I can’t seem to remember my napkin except for the 2 days last week  and one of those days I took this picture.

This does take a little planning the night before but nothing too crazy normally just packing up leftovers, putting in a napkin and making sure my bamboo stuff is clean.  The most work I do is my overnight oatmeal. What you haven’t heard of that?!?! Its my new favorite, check it out see its right their in my picture from this morning:

  I can’t find the blog where I first read about it now 🙁 But if I do I’ll link it up but here it is super easy:

1/3 C Raw Oats (not quick oats)

1/3 C Yogurt (Or more if you don’t like it so thick)

Dash of Cinnamon

Cut up fruit (My favorites are banana and peaches)

This helps my no waste goal by eliminating instant oatmeal packaging. I buy my oats and yogurt in big tubs! I use plain to eliminate extra sugar, but you can use whatever you want. For more ideas on what to pack when your in a hurry check out my first No Waste Lunch post.

  1. So glad you found a solution for your plan 🙂 I’ve been doing the same recently and making sure that we don’t waste food here too. If there’s leftovers from dinner, I usually pack it up for lunch for both Ellie and me (yea, we have a lot of leftovers from dinner these days). The nice thing about packing lunch for Ellie is that I rarely forget to bring my own lunch since all the preparation happens in the morning. I also love the oatmeal in a jar idea though I got sick of it after a week of doing that. I guess I’m not an oatmeal person 🙂
