First Time Mom and Losing It: Meal Planning for Success with the Sunsella Buddy Box Set Of 4

Meal Planning for Success with the Sunsella Buddy Box Set Of 4

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


During this weight loss journey I have found that if I don't plan my meals in advance I will kind of fall off and not make the healthiest decisions. A few weeks ago I was eating out a lot because I didn't take the time to plan out the meals for the week. Not only am I not eating my healthiest but I am also wasting money on food I could make myself.

Before I started on this journey I would pop in a frozen meal or can of pasta and sauce in the microwave for lunch. I am trying to stay away from those foods because of the sodium content. Now I eat tons of salads and stir-fries which can be a so time consuming to prepare and cook every day.

I decided to pull out my Sunsella Buddy Box's and get cracking on meal planning and make ahead lunches. Because you get a set of four bento style boxes I could plan ahead 2 meals in advance for myself and my husband. (I save my family tons of money by making my husband lunch everyday he goes to work).

The boxes are super high quality the lids go on so easily and secure that it is virtually leak-proof. I love how each section is perfectly portion controlled.


Before having the Sunsella Buddy Box's I would put my husband's lunch in a bunch of ziplock bags and into his lunch bag. Now his lunch is nicely secure in the buddy box's.


I also use it to portion control my snacks for the day.


You can purchase your own Sunsella Buddy Box's at Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I have been looking for something like this for our family. We all eat lunch together at home during the week, and it sort of sets us up for diet sabotage! I'd love to get our lunches together the night before, so we're eating healthier, and not over-eating! These look great!

  3. I love having divided containers! It makes sending lunch to work with hubby so much easier! I know he's getting just the right amount of food to keep him going :)

  4. This would be great for my daughters lunch, I like the individual dividers too. My daughter has a fit if any of her food touches and the portion size is just right!

  6. Portion control and planning, the bane of my existence. I start out with a meal plan, but then I don't actually follow through. How do you manage the follow through part?

  7. I love that it keeps everything separate. It would be perfect for my son he is one of those picky eaters who wont eat food if its touching other foods!

  11. I have the same trouble when it comes to planning ahead and portion control. If I don't plan well then I am going to fall off the 'wagon' so to speak and eat horridly. :/

  20. These look great. I had similar style ones a while back, but think I ended up using them for craft things. Maybe I should try and track them down again.

  21. That looks very useful! I also like your ideas for lunch. I am finding myself eating most of the same things over and over. You have a nice variety!

  24. These boxes would be great to have. I like putting my own lunches and meals together for a quick grab.

  25. I am the worst at meal planning. I never think about eating until I'm really hungry.

  26. I wish I had known about these when I was working! I spent a ton eating takeout every lunch 3 times a week---this would have saved me a lot of money!

  27. this was perfect for health and dieting, And it is also easy to prepare on

  28. What a great way to pack food and keep your meal planning working

  29. I think it's great that you dropped the frozen meals. Cooking from scratch is the first prerequisite for loosing weight, and planning your meals is also a great idea.

  30. This is more efficient as you get to add more meals in the buddy box.

  31. This is a great way to pack your food and control your portions. Love that everyone in your family gets his/her own box. :)

  32. I need to get these boxes ASAP! They would be PERFECT for my lunch every day. I've been spending so much buying lunch every day!

  33. I have to prepare ahead too or else I eat whatever I can find, which is usually junk

  34. I totally need to do this, so I wont fall off course of eating healthy with something not good for me. But first I need to get some containers! lol That chicken salad looks amazing.. are those kale chips? are they any good..

    ReplyDelete
  35. All of these meals look really good. But for a big guy like me, I'm always cheating, especially if I've gotta be on the run for something fast in between road runs.
