#FoodieFriday: High Protein Bento Boxed Lunch

Happy Friday All!

For me, lunch is the hardest meal to plan. Half of the week I am at home, and the other half I am on campus in class. For the days I am not at home, I have been packing a bento boxed lunch to take with me! It’s kind of like a grown-up version of a lunchable, ┬ábut I love being able to pick at it throughout class without making any disruptions! This recipe is also super easy to personalize and make your own. Any of the ingredients below can be substituted for other veggies, fruits, and granola bars. Check it out below!

What You Need:

Favorite Type of Lunch Meat (I used crack pepper turkey!)

Mini Sweet Bell Peppers

Strawberries

Fig Bar

Reduced Fat String Cheese

What You Do:

First, throw in one serving of lunch meat.

Next, add in the string cheese. I use the cheese to separate my meat from my produce.

Then, add in your veggies and fruit. I typically add 3 bell peppers and 5 strawberries.

Finally, wrap your granola bar (I use fig bars) in foil or place into a sandwich bag and lay on top of other food.

Now, throw it in your backpack, purse, or car, and enjoy as needed!

#FoodieFriday – Breakfast Style

Happy Friday All!

Getting back into the grind of healthy eating can be challenging, especially after Labor Day barbecues and birthday dinners. I’ve noticed that starting the morning off with a higher protein, higher fat meal sets me up for a successful day.

What I use:

2 whole eggs*

1 Thompson’s English Muffin

1 slice of Sargento Natural Munster Cheese**

2 slices of Oscar Meyer Deli Chicken Meat

1 Handful of Spinach

Pepper to taste

*Substitute egg whites to reduce fat content.

** Can go without or use reduced fat cheese to lower fat content.

How:

I let the lunch meat and spinach cook in a skillet for a minute or so first, and then, I add the eggs, cheese, and a little pepper. Afterwards, I flip the omelet and let it brown slightly on the top. This adds a little more texture to the eggs. Finally, throw the omelet on a toasted english muffin, and you have a savory breakfast!
