*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*
- Roast chicken drumstick and wing
- Romaine, cuke and olive oil salad
- Carrot sticks
- Sliced gala apple with macadamia nut butter!!
Macadamia nuts are very popular in the Paleo/Primal community, and with good reason. They have one of the best omega 3/6 ratios of any nut. They’re delicious. They have fiber and fat. All of that awesomeness does make them a bit more pricey, but in my opinion, it’s worth it. So when I discovered that one of my local health food stores had pure, raw macadamia nut butter, I plunked down the cash for it. It wasn’t cheap, but OMG, it tastes amazing! When I feel like splurging on a treat, this is what I will get from now on.
- Greek salad with lamb gyro meat, homemade tzatziki, olives, feta, tomato, red onion
- Hard boiled egg and carrot sticks
- Rainier cherries and macadamia nut butter
Making homemade Greek salad from scratch really isn’t as hard as it would seem. This lunch was all awesomeness. Sometimes, I love leftovers.
