Adult Portable Lunchbox Ideas for Winter

 

A fancy insulated lunch box GIVEAWAY + Delicious warm portable lunch ideas for winter that are perfect for working parents, busy mums, or any adult who wants a yummy hot home-cooked meal on the go!

As mums and parents we spend a lot of time focusing on what to feed our kids for lunch, however we sometimes forget to nourish ourselves. We make sure the kid’s lunch boxes offer a good variety of food, that they’re jam packed with nutrients, and that they’re not too time consuming to prepare. Well it’s about time we turn a little of that love onto our selves, and with the cold months now upon us I think delicious warm winter meals that nourish our bodies, put a skip in our step, and leave a smile our face is exactly what we deserve!

  GIVEAWAY: Scroll to the bottom of the blog for a chance to win an insulated 1300ml Vaya Tyffyn lunchbox of your own (similar to the one in the pic below!).

Winter lunch ideas for busy adults and mums on the go

This post is sponsored by Vaya

First things first! If we’re to enjoy warm winter meals on the run – and let’s be honest, very few of us have the luxury of eating our meals undisturbed from our own dinner tables each day – we need a good quality, insulated lunch box. 

What Lunch Box To Use?

You want a good insulated lunch box that doesn’t leak, keeps food warm for at least 5 hours (see you through from leaving home in the morning to lunch time) and isn’t too bulky.

The Vaya Tyffyn has an insulated stainless steel outer shell (that comes in heaps of pretty designs!) which keeps your food nice and warm. What I like most about the Vaya Tyffyn though, is the individual stainless steel copper-coated containers inside which make compartmentalising my lunch super easy! I can keep soup and croutons separate right up until I’m ready to eat (the lids are leak-proof too, so soup for lunch is a synch!). I can also take pasta and pasta sauce separately, or I can even have a very fancy feed like potato bake, roast meat, and gravy! 

The Vaya Tyffyn comes in three different sizes:

  • 600ml with 2 inner containers
  • 1000ml 3 inner containers
  • 1300ml 4 inner containers

I find the 1000ml is the perfect size for lunch just for me.

The Vaya also comes with a smart mat which has many uses. Firstly you can use it as a bag to carry your lunchbox, then unzip it into a table-mat. It’s specially coated to repel liquid and resist staining, and it can also hold your cutlery. The Vaya mat also doubles as a convenient picnic bag.

Hot Lunch Ideas For You (When You’re On The Run!)

PASTA – Spaghetti Bolognese, Lasagna, Ravioli serve with steamed vegetables, salad or bread.

CURRIES OR STIRFRIES – Stir-fry or curry with rice, chow mein 

Chow mien lunch to go - lunchbox for adults

ROAST LUNCH – Roast Meat, Potato, Pumpkin, Steamed Corn, Carrots and Broccoli.

SOUP – Pumpkin Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup or Lamb Barley and Vegetable Soup

Pumpkin soup lunch box storage solutions

SAUSAGE ROLLS OR PIES – these are great winter warmers!

Lunch to go for winter parents

LEFT OVERS – simply pack whatever is left over from dinner the night before.

I’m using the Vaya Preserve below, it is a stackable stainless steel food jar that keeps food hot or cold for up to 6 hours. My tips:

  • To keep food cold longer store the preserve in the fridge until needed.
  • To keep food warm longer, pour boiling water into the preserve and stand for 3 minutes (without lid), pour out water and immediately add your hot food and screw on the lid. 

Soup or preserve container lunch box option

My favourite is simple my husbands chicken curry it’s from his grandmother who was Sri Lankan and it’s a recipe that’s been handed down to my husbands father and my husband learnt it from him. I don’t even know what’s in it!! And people always ask how to cook it and he seals his lips and says I will teach my children when they’re ready!!

My favourite is soup in this cold weather, but usually I take left overs from the day before to work. My son prefers hot food over a sandwich as he feels they fill him up more as he is a growing teenager. I still haven’t found a container that does a good job for either of us. These look really good.

I love chicken and broccoli parcels as a warm winter lunch. They are simply chicken, broccoli, mixed herbs and cheese wrapped in filo sprinkled with sesame seeds and cooked in the oven. Simple to make and they freeze well so you can make big batches. The Vaya lunchbox would keep the parcels warm without letting the pastry go soggy.

My favourite portable toasty warm lunch is a veggie packed curry. Fry some potatoes and sweet potatoes until they soften. Add onion, garlic and ginger to the pan. Then add half a tin of coconut milk. Then the creative part happens. Add which ever spices tickle your fancy, curry powder, cumin, paprika. Anything. After it’s simmered for a while, add a few more veggies to bulk it out, some coriander and a tin of chickpeas. Serve with cauliflower rice for extra nutritional input! (Blitz cauliflower, then fry up with some olive oil and salt and pepper). And there you go. Super quick easy, nutritious and cheap!!

After reading the suggestions from others which by the way is making me feeling hungry, slightly envious of your lunch boxes and given me some more ideas for future lunches. I would have to say that My absolute favourite meal at lunch would have to be leftover roast chicken made into a curry.
It tastes even better if my Mum has made it – brings back childhood memories too.
I love the look of the Vaya Tyffyn – I may have to purchase one as well.

Homemade KFC 😀 We make and freeze crumbed chicken that tastes a lot like kfc. Then when we’re heading out on a car trip we reheat it and wrap it in alfoil in a large Sistema container.

Definately leftovers. Thai red beef curry is my favourite.

Hands down curried sausages and let’s face it leftovers are always better the next day because the flavour works its magic in the fridge overnight 🙂

My favourite winter warmer would definitely be my homemade Roast Butternut Pumpkin and Honey Soup. So simple yet tastes so good on a cold day.

As a kid it was always dads sausage stew (he didn’t cook anything else, mum pretty much always cooks) but these days I love a good Shepard’s pie!!

I don’t generally have time for a sit down lunch when I am at work, but if I did and if it would be home made pumpkin soup. Filling, warming and delicious.

I don’t take my lunch to work with me as I travel for work however I will absolutely need to look into this, I’m not a big fan of soup thanks to morning sickness memories so pasta is my winter go to. My favorite the chicken pumpkin and pasta lunch (your recipe) or I just got a recipe from daycare for pasta carbonara the kids both Loved, I would certainly take these work.

A rich, saucy casserole is always amazing on a cold winter’s day (or in frigid office air conditioning), especially with a crusty bread roll – which has hopefully made the journey uncrushed

My favourite warm winter lunch is left over chow mein ( The organised housewife version). This is my family go to meal which always allows left overs for the next day!

My favourite warm winter lunch is leftover Italian Beef Casserole, a recipe that has done the rounds in several generations of my family, and is a hit with everyone! Not having to ‘take a ticket and wait’ for the microwave in the lunchroom, instead using an amazing Vaya system, would only add more appeal!

OMG I was only thinking the other day that I should invest in an insulated food warmer as these would be great for after my workouts – I don’t need to rush home for a protein hit- mmm scrambled eggs, I can just take it along with me and have it straight after.

Leftover Indian curry and rice. My mum use to talk about when she was a child in India and having her curry and rice lunch in a Tiffin carrier. Would be nice to show my children the modern version!

I love bento style meals or poke bowls so I can a) use up leftovers and b) because I can never decide what I want to eat so this way I can eat ALL the things 😉
Lentil soup or Dahl is my favourite, or a warm soup made with leftover roast veggies. Curries too!
Then some sort of salad or fermented veg, sprouted legumes or edamame beans.
Home made hommous.
And of course something sweet like homemade apple pie or a warm slice.
Like I said, all the things!

Naomi June 27, 2019 - 11:39 AM

My favourite portable winter lunch would have to be minestrone soup with chorizo. Nutritious, warming, with just enough kick in the flavour. And the great thing is, most vegetables you have in the fridge can be used, it doesn’t have to be specific vegetables!

A warming chicken soup is my favourite. Being a paramedic I cant always have access to a microwave. A thermos would be ideal.

I must say my preference would be a veggie curry. My son has been asking me why he can’t take pasta to school- so he would pick bolognaise with farfalle or penne.

My favourite winter lunch would have to be left overs but particularly left over curries.
With the 1300 Tyffyn, I could put curry in one compartment, rice in another and naan bread in another.
At the moment I catch the train to work 2 hours each way. It’s such a balancing act with a bag full of containers with my food in it. A few times my containers have leaked.
Life would be so much easier with this Tyffyn!

My go to winter lunch. I scrub a whole sweet potato and wrap it in cling film. Microwave for 4 mins on high. Bam! – cooked sweet potato ready to walk out the door with. A super healthy, filling snack.
