As a flight attendant, I tend to eat a lot! Wether it be on the plane or on a layover with my crew!
My airline does not offer crew meals, and I don’t like to constantly buy food all of the time because the money tends to add up fast! I also don’t like to always eat the snacks on our plane (which we are allowed to eat if we want!).
So I bring a lunchbox with me on all of my trips!
The lunchbox that I bring with me is the eBags Crew Cooler 2! My airline requires us to have a black lunchbox, so this is the one that I chose!
You can buy it on the eBags website for $49.99 (they do tend to go on sale!). You can go here to purchase it!
You can also purchase it on Amazon! Click here to check prices on Amazon!
I am not going to go into much detail about this lunchbox as I will be doing a separate blog post (and video) review on this in the next month or so! If you want to know more, please feel free to ask in the comments and I will gladly answer any and all questions until then!
My Ice Packs
I like to bring an ice bag like this because it is refillable!
I bring this because I can add ice to it on the plane when I’m on the plane all day! I also like to add hot water to it when I get cold so that I can hold it and stay warm!
I also have one of these types of ice packs to help keep my food cold! I have had this one since I was younger, so I figured I would just use it since I already had it on hand!
This is not the exact ice pack that I use, but you get the idea! You can purchase this one on Amazon!
Now, I did not show this in the video because I did not have it with me on that trip! But I do bring this with me occasionally so I wanted to share it with you as well!
This is a Hot Logic Mini. It’s basically a portable stove!
Sometimes my hotel rooms don’t have a microwave and instead of leaving my room to go find one, I can just plug this in and put my food in it to heat it up! It can take a while to heat up your food, but it is a great alternative to a microwave if you don’t have one!
These are the containers I use to pack food in when I actually have time to meal prep! Since I didn’t have time to cook for this trip, I didn’t need to bring these containers. So although I did not show these in the video either, I still wanted to show you!
These meal prep containers fit perfectly into my lunchbox! I can pack 3 perfectly stacked and still have room to pack around them and on top! These particular ones are a single compartment, but they also make a double compartment version as well!
I have some other containers as well, but they are too big for my lunchbox. I keep them for my fiance to use and in case I get a bigger lunchbox thats fit them!
These containers are also Dishwasher, Microwave and Freezer safe! You can purchase them here.
These are the plastic utensils I showed in the video that I said I got at IKEA.
They were $2.99 at IKEA, and you can purchase them on the website for the same price!
You can also purchase them from Amazon. Click here if you want to purchase them from Amazon.
There isn’t much else that I bring with me other than a $3 reusable Starbucks Cup or reusable water bottle!
Here is a video of me showing you what I brought with me on one of my last trips!
What do you bring in your lunchbox? I’d love to see what type of food you like to eat on trips!
