GoPicnic - Healthy, Complete On the Go Meals

We have gave GoPicnic ready-to-eat meals a mention in our Concert in the Park story but felt that this great product deserved to be featured on its own. Created by a flight attendant Julia Stamberger in 2006, GoPicnic meals were first offered on major U.S. airlines as an alternative to the costly but poor quality in-flight meals (you know the kind. Ewww.). The GoPicnic solution? Healthy, ready-to-eat boxed meals – that are no bigger than a hard cover book – that also reduced waste and required zero prep time, thus increasing flight attendant efficiency and improving the overall customer satisfaction. Yeah.

The meals are now available to the public. Woot. I bought a variety of them to take on our road trip. They were perfect because they require no refrigeration, no heating or preparation and were compact. Plus, they are nutritional and each meal is well balanced in protein, carbs and fruits and vegetables, with a little healthy sweet treat in each. All are under 400 calories. The GoPicnic meal box is packed with premium healthy brand products, such as Late July organic snacks and Annie’s crackers. None of GoPicnic’s choices contain trans-fats, nor high fructose corn syrup, nor added monosodium glutamate, nor artificial flavors or colors. The high-quality ingredients are clearly labeled on the packaging, so even people with special diets, including all-natural, gluten-free, kosher, vegetarian, and vegan, can enjoy a GoPicnic box meal.

My daughter Thea, loved the peanut butter and crackers, while my other daughter enjoyed the hummus. The girls have asked me to buy them for their lunches for school. Their compact size and well rounded nutrition will make these a perfect alternative to school bought lunches when we do not have time to make a lunch that morning (’cause you know that’s just going to happen). They will definitely become a staple in my pantry.

World Market (love) carries GoPicnic but you may also buy them directly from their website. Prices range from $2.99 to $4.99.

Lunchables be gone!
