I looked at food bags, but decided that I prefer a box-like structure instead - wider base and opening, and can be stacked. I've just ordered a couple of silicone lunch boxes which can be collapsed to 1/3 the open height when not in use. That should reduce the bulk problem. I also ordered silicone food covers and beeswax-coated cloth wraps. They haven't arrived yet, but I'll update here after I've tried them out for a while.
Silicone bags are great! It's non-toxic, safe for food, resists microbes, is easy to clean and stands up to hot and cold temperatures. They are not cheap, but if you take care of these bags they will last a very long time.
