Brown bag or silver bento?
The Wall Street Journal calls it The New Power Lunch—tony grub in fancy boxes at the desk.
Yeah, very powerful.
I guess an argument could be made for health.
The power lunchboxes (still makes me giggle to type that) are purses, Dutch microwavable lashups, insulated Gourmet Getaway bags, a bento box of microwavable containers (bento boxes are pretty neat Japanese lunch boxes), etc.
Many contain small containers—to push the desk-bound diner toward smaller dabs of stuff.
They fill these containers with couscous, salmon salad, nuts, chicken breasts, steamed fish.
At one office, a competition developed for the coolest foods.
Oh, yes, better leftovers. It’s come to that.
