With so many of us finding new adventures these days, it’s important to know that we can still eat beautiful and healthy food even on the go! Picnics, hiking, and backpacking don’t have to consist of granola bars and peanut butter and jelly every time, with the help of cooling and heating containers from @kleankanteen! Their canisters are vacuum insulated to keep food hot or cold for hours, and their food boxes are leakproof with snap and lock tabs. That means you can bring colorful soups that stay hot, and refreshing drinks that say cool and crisp.
Since my husband takes a homemade lunch to work everyday, I wanted to share his lunch this week with you! A delicious and hearty kale and bean soup. With @kleankanteen, they make prepping, packing, and going so incredibly easy and helpful. I don’t have to limit myself to what I can pack for him with their new food solutions line. Their beautiful stainless steel Food Boxes and TKCanisters come in three sizes that are incredibly durable, dishwasher safe, and BPA free. It’s time to reimagine healthy food on the go and #elevateyouradventures! #kleanfood #sponsored
