Looking fashionable in the fridge

Within the last week my snacks and lunches have been upgraded. Not so much the actual food, but the containers that I put them in.

My friends know me well - I bring my lunch and snacks to work, I like cute things and I love cute things that are reusable/cut down on waste!

Inside this cute lunch sack today is this:
Couscous Salad with Mint, Raisins & Almonds

1/2 cup whole-grain couscous
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 (15 ounce) can chickpeas 
1/2 cucumber, cubed
1/4 cup (small handful) fresh mint, finely chopped
1 tablespoon sliced almonds
2 tablespoons dressing  my choice: Trader Joe's Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette 

I typically make two salads at one time, to make the most of the ingredients.

I LOOOOOVE the snaksaks!! I am going to hunt them down and buy tons of them. I'm sure my roommate thinks I'm crazy because I'm the girl that washes out all my ziplocks and reuses them forever for all my snackys. This is a perfect soloution!
