I received a new lunchbox from Goodbyn and I am one happy mum because I now have another lunchbox to place in my school boy’s food for school.
Goodbyn Bynto is a food container designed with three compartments to keep foods separated. Sandwiches won’t taste like your banana and your fresh fruit won’t have biscuit crumbs in it! Better yet, Goodbyn Bottles fit perfectly in the middle compartment (sold separately). Made entirely of FDA-approved materials, no BPAs or phthalates and lead-safe, the Goodbyn Bynto is dishwasher-safe and made to last. And when it’s time for a new one, the Goodbyn Bynto is 100 percent recyclable.
Goodbyn Bynto does away with wasteful plastic bags and drink boxes. You can save an estimated $190 per child each year on eliminating plastic bags and drink boxes. More reasons to love your lunch without breaking the bank.
I am glad I will be able to separate my son’s snacks and lunch in the three compartments. So I used it immediately to prepare his lunch for school. Here are two of those lunches he had in a Goodbyn food container:
Lunch #1: carrot sticks with organic ranch veggie dip in a small (separate container), yogurt, leftover chicken tender, two nut-free brownie cookies, and organic chocolate soy beverage.
Lunch #2: organic strawberries, organic mangoes, ham and cheese sandwich and organic chocolate soy beverage
The Goodbyn food container just lets me be creative with his lunches and snacks. I love that one of the compartments is big enough to hold a tetra pack of beverage. The middle compartment can hold up to two cups and the smaller one up to one cup.
I also used the Goodbyn food container to pack some snacks during our visit to the Ripley’s Aquarium of Toronto. The place was packed with people and the cafe was also full. It was a good thing that I used the Goodbyn food container, none of the dry foods were mushy or had become wet from the strawberries. Plus we were able to save money from buying in the cafe or going to the fast-food to buy our snacks.
Our snacks during our family outing.
After more than three hours and placed right side up inside hubby’s backpack, the cereals and the ginger molasses remained dry. That’s pretty impressive.
I have also not seen any leak or wet stains in my son’s backpack after using the Goodbyn food container. Although it does not guarantee that it is leak proof, so far, all I got on the day’s end is an empty lunchbox from my son! The Goodbyn food container also saves me from buying plastic bags (those zippie bags for sandwiches or other snacks). This food container is also safe to use in the microwave, so in case my son is not able to finish his lunch, when he gets home, we can just reheat the food in the container for afternoon snacks! This is also dishwasher safe, and mostly, BPA-free.
I love my Goodbyn food container and you will too! You can find Goodbyn in the following:
Today is a lazy Sunday for us, well, except for hubby who went to Walmart to return the juicer he bought last Sunday. Unfortunately, the $39 Big Boss Juicer he got did not function anymore the following day we decided to juice. I had all the fruits sliced and peeled but when I turned on the juicer, it did not work at all, so he decided to return it and buy a better one.
So he went out while the boys and I had all the day watching movies. We have been watching the Disney movie Frozen since yesterday and had it on again today. We all love the movie and it has a very good lesson. We also sing the songs of the movie and the boys love it. I did not do any general cleaning today because I decided to just watch movies and I did. While the boys were having their naps, I went to look for another movie and watched Captain Philips.
When hubby arrived home, he got a new juicer and we juiced some of the fruits and he also went to take a nap and I continued to watch Captain Philips. It’s a very good movie and I loved it. When it was done, I cooked dinner early so that the boys can go to bed early as well for school day tomorrow and for me and hubby to go back to work as well.
I love it when we are having lazy Sundays, the only thing missing is going to church again.
Scents can boost your energy, relieve stress and aid concentration when used properly. Cinnamon, for example, is a spicy scent that can help reduce stress while orange boosts energy levels. Aromatherapy is very simple if you are familiar with using scented oil and essential oils. Essential oils can be added to water in a spray bottle. Since essential oils are very concentrated you should be cautious when using them to make perfumes or other products that are applied to the skin since they can cause irritation if they aren’t diluted properly. Typically, three to four drops of essential oil is enough for four ounces of water to make your own aromatherapy spray.
Reed diffusers and candles are both popular aromatherapy options. Candles are available in a wide range of colours and styles. Opting for a soy candle is ideal if you want to benefit from aromatherapy since soy candles tend to throw scent better than other options. A reed diffuser is a bottle of scented liquid with reeds inserted into the top. The reeds can be flipped over as needed to expose the liquid to your space and scent it better. You can check out reed diffusers to find a wide range of styles and scented oils for your home. Diffusers offer aromatherapy benefits without using a flame, making this option safer than candles.
