Four Healthy Bento Box Lunch Ideas

I’m always on the hunt for new lunch recipes because I just hate eating the same thing over and over again. Variety is the spice of life after all! Today I’m sharing 4 of my favorite lunches to eat and pack. There are 4 suggestions that fit all kinds of diets and the best part is they can be totally customized to fit your preferences and mood.

low carb/protein packed

  1. Black Pepper Harvest Snaps
  2. mixed nuts and dried fruit
  3. hard boiled eggs, peeled
  4. sliced black pepper turkey breast

omnivore/healthy

  1. Onion Thyme Harvest Snaps
  2. grapes
  3. curry chicken salad, I love the one from Trader Joe’s
  4. celery and your favorite nut butter

vegan/gluten free

  1. Lightly Salted Harvest Snaps
  2. hummus (a nut-based cheese substitute would also be delicious)
  3. tabouli
  4. olives

pescatarian

  1. Mango Chili Lime Harvest Snaps
  2. coconut salmon bites, this is my favorite recipe
  3. pineapple slices
  4. honey yogurt dipping sauce, combine nonfat Greek yogurt with honey, lemon juice & zest

Favorite bento boxes

After traveling to Japan last year, I became hooked on transporting my lunch in bento boxes. They are perfect for those of us who don’t like their foods to touch and great for packing a variety of things. I like these stainless steel bento boxes because the dividers are removable, making it easy-peezy to clean.

I jazzed up the lids of my containers using some white adhesive vinyl that I cut using my Silhouette cutting machine. Yet another reason why it’s my favorite DIY tool! If you don’t have a Silhouette, you can always decoupage cute patterns onto your boxes.
