Dining out is fun, but regularly eating homemade meals can keep your wallet heavier and fuel your body with more nutritious foods. In a 2017 study, researchers linked eating home-cooked meals with a better quality diet.
You can’t exactly head to the fridge and whip up a nutrient-rich meal if you’re working from the office or out at the beach, though. Enter brown-bagging it. The practice of packing your own meal may feel like a grade-school throwback. However, it’s a way to fit in a home-cooked meal away from home.
If it’s been a while since you packed your own lunch, allow us to update you: The humble brown bag is something of a relic. These days, there are plenty of reusable options to cut down on your carbon footprint. There are also new ways to ensure your drink stays temperature-controlled.

Eating on the go doesn’t always have to involve takeout. Instead, you can brown-bag it using more modern products. Indulging in homemade meals is typically a healthier way to fuel your body. You can nix added salt, sugar, and grease. It can also save you money, though you’ll want to invest in some reusable products to keep your food at the right temperature and from spilling. Bento boxes can separate items like dressings, and coolers are ideal for adventures. Travel mugs, bottle sleeves, and ice packs can ensure your food and drink keep until you’re ready to dig in or drink up.
