What is Lava Lunch?
Lava Lunch is an easy and practical solution that combines timeless design with function not available in any other lunch bag - Warmth.
Lava Lunch keeps your food warm up to five hours and allows you to pack foods you never thought possible - grilled chicken with sautéed vegetables, leftovers from last night's lasagna, gooey grilled cheese sandwiches, and even burgers - all kept warm. It does so through a combination of proprietary insulation and additional heat provided by the Lava Rocks included. Our goal is to change the way people everywhere think about lunch.
How it Works
This amazing feat of thermodynamics happens thanks to a special material we call Lava Rocks. This material is designed to absorb heat right from your microwave. While it's absorbing all of this energy, they become soft. This is how you know your Lava Rocks are ready to use. Once the interior of the Lava Lunch begins to cool, the Lava Rocks release their stored energy and thanks to our proprietary insulation, the heat is trapped there. This is how Lava Lunch keeps your food hot for so long. The difference is noticeable and can change the way you think about lunch. And if that's not cool enough, they are also made of organic, plant-based material, and designed so that they cannot leak - even if punctured.
The Back Story
When our founder's oldest son was young he stopped growing! After medical evaluation and testing, she foundout that his problems were the result of food allergies and intolerance and quickly changed the diet for the whole family.
The result? Within one week his hyperactivity abated. Within six months he grew several inches. He is now an incredibly smart, funny, healthy boy.
While the benefits of a more natural, healthier diet were very visible and obvious, a method for maintaining it wasn't. This new diet presented quite a challenge. Eating out? Forget about it. Almost every store or restaurant bought meal contains some allergen or other no-no food. Parties and treats provided by schools or daycare? Nope. These are usually made with gluten, dairy, and other allergens. Not to mention packed with preservatives, chemicals and dyes. School lunches? Not a chance. Highly processed mystery meat was definitely out. In the end she cooked all natural, whole foods at home, packing them in some sort of container and carrying it with us everywhere they went. But how to keep it from spoiling? Cooked foods need to be kept warm to prevent the growth of bacteria. Not to mention, they taste so much better that way.
And so, Lava Lunch was born.
