*Welcome to Bento Box Saturday. Every once and awhile, I post photos of one or more of my bento lunches from that week. I use a Laptop Lunches bento box and I love it because it helps me to reduce the amount waste I create, since I don’t produce a lot of extra garbage from throw away packaging. I also love how it creates perfect portion sizes. To learn more about how I pack and carry my bento, check out this post and this post too*
- Steak, Spinach and mozzarella frittata with organic ketchup
- Lettuce, red bell pepper and feta salad
- Celery, bell pepper sticks and cheddar
- Greek yogurt with dark chocolate and maple syrup
While the yogurt looks amazing here, it ended up being less than awesome by the time I got to lunch. The yogurt had gotten watery and a bit sour, and while the chocolate was able to cover up that a bit, it’s definitely much better fresh. I think I’m switching to individual yogurt containers for lunch. It just tastes better when it’s freshly opened.
- Chicken Kourma
- Broccoli and feta
- Fresh strawberries with yogurt and a little sugar
- Herbed Quinoa!!
- Apple (not pictured)
Yay for the return of quinoa!!!! I hadn’t eaten any in months because of my Paleo experiment. While I’m definitely retaining a lot of aspects of the Paleo diets (mainly focusing on whole, natural foods and not being afraid of fats), I have been adding some whole grains back into my diet (no processed grains though). And since quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain, it probably would have been okay anyhow. I love to eat it like this: add in some salt, pepper and parsley, plus a bit of olive oil. Delish 🙂
