*Welcome to Bento Box Saturday. Most weeks, I post photos of some of my bento lunches from that week. I generally use a Laptop Lunches bento box for my lunches and I love it because it helps me to reduce the amount waste I create. I also love how it makes for perfect portion sizes. And my lunches look pretty cute too:) To learn more about how I pack and carry my Laptop Lunches bento, check out this post. I also use a LunchbotsTrio and Quad*
- Roasted chicken thigh
- Spinach, tomato and hard boiled egg salad
- Celery and carrot sticks
- Roasted allium dip (via Practical Paleo)
Once again, I found another new favorite recipe in Practical Paleo. Roasted allium spread is super easy to make and insanely delicious. You roast onions and a head of garlic, blend it all together with olive oil and seasoning, and you have a delicious dip/spread. Perfect for spreading on meat or dipping veggies into.
- Hard boiled eggs with sage and paprika
- Chopped avocado
- Red bell pepper sticks
- Roasted sweet potatoes (via Practical Paleo)
Yet another standard breakfast bento. I try to change up the veggies I bring each week to keep the hard-boiled eggs from getting too boring. Do you know of some other ways to make hard boiled eggs a little more interesting? I’m worried that I might start to tire of them.
- Roast pork shoulder
- Green beans with roasted pearl onions
- Red bell pepper and carrot sticks
This is now my new favorite way to prepare green beans. I steam them as usual, then top them with roasted pearl onions and generous amounts of ghee with a little salt and pepper. Amazing, and so much tastier than plain green beans.
