BENTO #118

I think the trick to 'diet bentos' is to use lots of vegetables! I used most of the same as you can see in the picture.

In the left bento box are rolled ham slices with some slivered carrots and lots of alfalfa sprouts.

In the silicon cup is some vegetables I kept back last night from cooking the "
Yasai Itame" for this morning. I blanched the vegetables together in salted boiling water, mixed them with a dash of shoyu, pepper and sesame seed oil. I bought some Jackfruit yesterday so I skewered some with my new picks!



In the right bento box, I filled one and a half mini croissants with more alfalfa sprouts, some slivered carrots rolled in thin slice of ham with a dash of mustard. More cherry tomatoes to accompany the sandwich.

I love love love your new foodpick.

True, the way to diet is through vegetables, and protein. No carbo for maximum of 10 days. HOwever, I find it hard not to go without carbo. I am such a carbo person.

YasaiItame in the cup is a good idea because it is juicy.

With such specific dateline and target, vegies may be the best solution. You made diet food look so good.

allthingspurple: Thank You! Thank You! I love the colors too!

10 days without carbo, I think if anybody can last that long, it's #2. She eats 2 spoons full for dinner every night.

nobu: Yes, the Yasai Itame is very juicy and I like the dash of pepper in it.

3lilangels: I have to make it look good otherwise she doesn't even want to eat! *sweating*

I have the same box :)

Looks yummy, and yes, lots of veggies is good!

Actually I think croissants is quite fattening as it contain lots of butter, besides being made from refined flour. Wholemeal bread would be better.

Bento Pet said...

3lilangels: A little 'fat' is okay lah! She's already avoiding carbo and quite picky with foods now.
