Hot Lunch Away From Home

Here's a great way to keep soups, stews, and casseroles hot in your lunch box until lunchtime:

Heat a pot or kettle with water to boiling, and then pour the boiling water into a thermos - preferred types are aluminum or stainless steel. Allow the water to sit in the thermos for about 3 minutes. Replace the water with boiling food. Your food will stay hot for 2 - 3 hours. Use this method instead of a microwave at work, since microwave ovens destroy nutrients and enzymes in food.
