You may have noticed that since I started my diet, which is not really a diet but more a change of my nutrition, I cook my lunch and snacks at home and bring them to work. For the transport I used old takeaway containers, which are not great for the reuse or use in the dishwasher. So it was absolutely convenient when the brand BergHOFF asked me to collaboration with them. They sent me the newest addition to their LEO collection, the to-go collection products. I got the bento box, the dual lunch pot, the travel flatware set, the water bottle and the personalized travel mug with my name on it. They now have this temporary offer, where if you buy the BergHOFF travel mug, you get it pimped for free with whatever text you want.
Since I stared to live more consciously, I try to make as little waste as possible and it is important to purchase products that are qualitative and don’t break quickly. The quality is very important but I have to admit that I also appreciate an attractive design. For me, the LEO on-the-go collection combines quality, functionality and design.
The design of these BergHOFF products inspired me to create the following recipes:
