Kitchenboss vacuum sealing machine off amazon for about $60. Then just buy the massive roll of generic vacuum bags you cut to size and seal off amazon.

I normally pack breakfast bars, almonds, some granola/whey bars, yogurt, 2 sandwiches, and a cut up rotisserie chicken in my Aerocoast cooler. I use ziplocks and some reusable food prep containers. Typically its more food than I eat on the four day because I will eat out once or twice.

I see some guys hitting Soylent pretty heavily on the line as well. Not bad for packability but not sure on how sustainable that would be for me personally.

Don't eat the green Soylent.

Pretty sure this thread happens about every two weeks for some reason... i guess the meal prep hardos cant go much longer than that without sharing their down-to-the-item vaccum-sealed meal prep regimen like Patrick Bateman describing his morning routine. And if this thread doesn’t get u super stoked to share ur lunchbox escapades, don’t forget to check out “theveggiepilot” on instagram. A true pioneer in the healthy meal prep / vanity industry.

As for me, I usually stop in at Taco Bell on my way to the airport on day 1. I order about 16 Crunchwrap Supremes and then carefully stack them on top of each other in my Aerocoast cooler. Then i’ll lay a 2 liter bottle of Faygo on top and usually it all fits like a glove... perfect for a 4-day : )

Fill in the gaps with a half dozen orders of nacho fries.
