As you guys know, I’ve gotten a TON of great recipes and meal ideas from Michelle over at The World According to Eggface. I love her segment, A Day in My Pouch, where she shows the fun foods she’s eating while staying WLS-friendly. The thing I love about the bento concept is that it provides instant portion control and organization. I was so impressed that I asked for a Bento of my own for my birthday.
My sister and I are heading to SeaScape for the day, along with our pooches, and our outing gave me the perfect opportunity to put together my very first on-the-go bento lunch. So today begins a periodic segment I’m going to call, What’s in My Bento?
Orange: 2.5 oz of tuna mixed with mayo & mustard (I didn’t have any pickle relish)
Yellow: red bell pepper “scoops” (instead of using crackers – watching carbs)
Green: watermelon chunks
Blue: 1/2 a cookie dough Quest bar (for the ride home)
I’m going to be using my bento daily for my lunches once school is in session, and as I put together interesting combos, I’ll definitely share. Maybe in a weekly post, showing a few bento lunches at once.
I hope you get out today and have a fantastic Saturday!
