Menu Plan


Last week I did a huge blog launch for my newest blog, a blog by my family: The Android Family! So I ate what I had on hand and didn’t do Bentos. I really missed having them! This week it was a must to get back to the Bento making!


For Mother’s Day my Mom got me a Costco card, (she always gets me something since having my first baby she is so sweet). I’m loving it! But I’m trying to be really good and make sure that I portion snacks out. I got a huge bag of kettle popcorn for when I want crunchy snacks and I made a point of making snack sized bags.

My favorite find at costco was Morning Star’s Chipolte Black Bean burgers! I was living off those last week while I blogged 12 hours a day. They are so good and I’m eating them in so many different ways. Last week I had one with cheese and another with greek yogurt and avocado on top. You will see I will be eating them this week in my bentos!
