Monday Bunday: Lunch boxes

I’m bringing lunch to work more these days. Sandwiches at the start of the week (with roast meat left over from Sunday), leftovers and a hodgepodge of assembled lunches on other days.

If I was busy at work, I would treat myself to a nice lunch out. It was an excuse to get out of the office, see some daylight, go for a walk and sample some delicious local cuisine. If I buy lunch, I usually spend an average of $7NZ which soon adds up. I used to buy lunch most days, but Last week I brought a home made lunch every single day and the last few weeks before, I’ve been buying only once a week.

I’m always recycling plastic take-out containers, but if I had an adorable lunch box I would be more enthusiastic about bringing lunch. Here is a round up of a few bunny lunch boxes from around the web. I particularly like the ones wit partitions and multi-storey compartments.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. I love how the Japanese stores have such a variety, I should get myself a nice looking one. I use a cheapie Sistema one, so I don’t worry if I lose it. I have a set of chopsticks that I keep at work.Speaking of that, I should be more organised and bring lunch in more often.

    • I have heaps of chopsticks at home, but none at work. I really should bring some cheap ones to work. Although I brought a couple of mugs from and my favourite mug has gone missing 😦

  2. I generally bring my lunch so that I can control the calories. The food is always better. Today, for example, I brought BBQ salmon steak from last night with grilled vegetables on some arugula. I ate it cold, but could easily be warmed up for a delicious hot lunch. Tonight I’ll make something with shrimp so we have shrimps for lunch tomorrow!

      • Hmmm, I thought it was getting chillier here so I made Butter Chicken (healthy version) and I’m taking it to work for lunch tomorrow, but it’s really hot again. Oh well, I shan’t complain.

        • Butter chicken is a favourite at our house. After looking at our butter chicken budget last year (or was it the year before?) I decided I needed to learn how to make it. But I suspect that the local restaurants here use a bucketload of sugar and fat because I was never able to make it as sweet and creamy at home. In the end I gave up. I decided it’s better to enjoy the restaurant version in ignorance than to make the full sugar, full fat restaurant version at home.

          • True, Genie, but I find the spices help with the flavours and I don’t miss the sweetness or the richness (they actually put in butter and lots of it!). It’s not to say we don’t ever have it out, but we do enjoy it a bit more often at home.
