  • Shannon Barlow: I've been itching to try the reusable material snack sack. Love the blue bicycle large one. I was just in that store the other day for the first time.
  • Amy: I'm a big fan of all things Sistema, but what I really need now is more reusable snack bags.
  • Shawna: I'm looking for longer, thinner sandwich containers for wraps, burritos, and sausages. Maybe one of the Sistema containers would fit the bill...
  • Alison: We really like the Sistema containers. We use the sandwich and small snack size ones.
  • Lisa bolduc: I would get a swell bottle and a couple of these container Klip It Split Coloured Tabs 380ml for the kids
  • AJ: Definitely a S'well water bottle for my big kid
  • Stacey: The Green Hungry Tote Bag is calling my name (along with so many other awesome little lunch items)!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

The #dailylunches project – 1000 lunches and counting

Every day I eat lunch and take a picture. Here's the latest:

Created with flickr badge.
