30 Bananas a Day!


I start work at a factory on saturday and I need to pack a lunch to bring. I work 8-10 hours a day and I get two or three breaks. I was just wondering what you would recommend bringing for lunch?

How long would daterade last in a mason jar in the fridge? Banana smoothie?

Any help would be appreciated!

Datorade will last fine all day so that's a great option.

Banana smoothies don't last so well due to oxidation, but mango ones will keep if stored in the fridge, as will pineapple.

Grapes make a good transportable snack/meal, whole dates, dried figs, a pot of fruit salad, apples, and whole bananas...all good packed lunch material!

Great job being so organized :)

Instead of making dateorade I'd just take dates. Waaaay less oxidation will happen and dates are super packable. I've been eating dates for lunch for over the past 2 and a half year at school and I still haven't gotten sick of them ;)

I wouldn't recommend smoothies. Just bring a bag full of a single fruit, that usually works best. Mangoes are a great option, you can pre-peel them and put them in a container to save time too. Bananas are good, dates are good, lower cal fruit are iffy but if you eat a lot before or after work then you can make things like cantalope work well too. 

I have  plastic box that can hold & protect 8-9 banana could load many peaches pears persimmons ie  fragile fruits   

Bubblewrapped Bananas!

You could pack diffrent fresh fruits, dried fruits, few nuts or seeds in a japanese Bento Box.

I found mine today, and try to clean it. I thought it would be never ever gonna be clean. Plastic is hard to clean.

Thanks for all the ideas! Definitely helped :)

Lychees, melon + knife and spoon, carry dates in your pocket to snack on whilst working, apples, oranges.
Protect soft fruit with bubblewrap and perhaps put into a box, nature has already done the packaging you just need to work out how to transport it safely and unpackage it.
Wouldn't really bother with salad while at work - too few calories, bulky and easily damaged.

I used to cycle to work with 10+ bananas bubble wrapped in a rucksack on my back then eat them all (or most of them) in the 30 minute lunch break.
How do you pack a cooked lunch?
