What Do You Know About Stainless Steel Lunch Boxes?

Sep 4, 2018

Lunch is a meal that many people often overlook. This is generally not good. Lunch is an extremely important meal that can alter the course of your day. It serves as a branch between breakfast and dinner, two of the largest meals of the day. Eating lunch on a regular basis can also keep your metabolism proper, as well as ensure that your body is getting the nutrients that it needs. Eating lunch can help you do better at work or school because your brain is getting the necessary nutrition it needs. There are also some smaller benefits to eating lunch regularly, as well. Eating lunch can give you the opportunity to socialise with other people as well. Socialising and cultivating relationships is extremely important for any work or school environment. However, if your lunch is not properly stored, it can ruin your day. One of the ways that you can ensure that your lunch is being stored properly is to keep it in a lunchbox. Stainless steel lunch boxes are growing in popularity for many reasons.

What Is Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is quite literally steel that is resistant to stains and rust, as the name suggests. This specific type of steel contains chromium, which is where it gets its “stainless” descriptor from, since chromium is resistant to stains and rust. This makes it a perfect material to make utensils that relate to food, as you will be able to use them over and over without having to worry about potential stains. Cutlery and lunch boxes are two of the most common places that stainless steel is used. Lunch boxes can benefit quite a bit from stainless steel, as well. Alongside being stain resistant, a stainless steel lunch box is reusable, as well as easy to clean. You can either clean it by hand or stick it in the dishwasher and it will be ready to be used again. Stainless steel is environmentally friendly, as you won’t need to use cleaning materials to remove stains. That being said, stainless steel is also incredibly versatile. This means that there are several different types of lunch boxes that are available.

What Types of Stainless Steel Lunch Boxes Are There?

In addition to your traditional box, there are many different types of stainless steel lunch boxes. There are some lunch boxes that take on a bento-style form. This style of lunch box originated in Japan and has quickly spread around the world for good reason. Bento-style lunch boxes are incredibly convenient and versatile. There are some that offer several compartments for you to put different types of food in. Others will have multiple tiers, allowing for different parts of your lunch to be stored in other areas. The various compartments in a bento-style lunch box not only allow for variation in your lunches, but they can also help you with portion control. Portion control is extremely important, especially for people who are conscious about their food intake. This particular style of lunch box is also much easier to transport, store, and clean, making it perfect to bring to school or office lunches.

Adventure awaits at the lush hillside community of Baan Khiri Wong Kot, Udon Thani

Sep 4, 2018

This actioned packed “One Night Stay with Locals” promises adventure, fun activities and lots of deliciously spicy food (this is Isaan, after all!) The journey takes you up to the northeastern corner of Thailand to Udon Thani province, where you’ll carry on deep into the forest until you reach a mountainside community known as “Baan Kiri Won Kot”.

The friendly locals will be waiting to give you a warm welcome into their homes, as well as show you around the village and provide a ceremony to mark the beginning of your stay. Now, the adventure really starts with a tractor tour of the nearby rice paddies and jungle, before making your way to a nearby waterfall for lunch and perhaps a dip in the refreshing water.

The afternoon provides an opportunity to learn more about the Baan Kiri Won Kot community, and how the locals live and make money off the land and natural resource available to them. For instance, there’s time for a lively fruit picking session at a nearby orchid and you can stop by one of the many shops along the route back to pick up some local souvenirs to take back for your own friends and family.

Before bedding down for the night in your rustic but comfortable homestay accommodation, your hosts will treat you to another ceremony showcasing their unique northeastern Thai culture. You won’t go to bed with an empty stomach, either, as a traditional ‘Palang’-style dinner is served up, including many vibrant Isaan dishes you probably know and love – as well as some you may never have tried before! This style of eating involves sitting in a circle on mats on the floor, which is a great way for you to get to know more about the local villagers and exchange ideas as you tuck into dishes such as grilled chicken, somtam, sticky rice, grilled fish, and dill soup cooked inside bamboo.

After a good night’s rest, make sure you set your alarm clock early, as you don’t want to miss seeing the morning mist rise over the mountains. You’ll be heading up on the tractor to a viewpoint to catch the sunrise and the sea of clouds cover the jungle down below. It’s the perfect way to start the morning while sipping a cup of locally brewed coffee, rounding off this truly Extraordinary Experience in Udon Thani.
