Menu Plan


This week I’ve decided to battle dinner in a new way! I am going to try and pre-pack bentos for my dinners this week. I am just really struggling with the desire to cook of late. On Sunday I pulled out my handy dandy Ziploc Divided Container (aff link) and started creating bentos with exactly how many calories I needed for a meal. That way I could just pull them



Bentos for Healthy Eating

Bentos can be anything from works of art, to just making something cute, to a meal packed with lots of colorful fresh food.


When I pack my bento I try to fill the largest section with protein and then fill in with veggies and fruit. As I pack the food into the different sections I use a dry erase pen to keep track of calories.

The Menu:



Monday: Hummus & Feta Stuffed Meat Wraps


2 ounces of chicken deli meat wrapped around 2 tablespoons of red pepper hummus and 2 tablespoons of feta. Served with apples, Buffalo Pretzel Chips, and snow peas with French Onion Snow Peas (348 calories)

Tuesday: Meat & Cheese Rolls with Hummus Dip


2 ounces of chicken deli meat wrapped with 2 slices of pepper jack cheese. Served with strawberries, snow peas and 1/4 cup red pepper hummus. (357 calories)

Wednesday: Pepper’s Antipasto
