Bento Lunch 4-27-10

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

I missed making bentos, and I think they really help me get my veggies in :). I'll add a FF yogurt to this at lunch time.

    The onigiri was brown sushi rice with some "sushi sprinkles". Even with the yogurt it was a light lunch but I tend to get a lot of my calories at dinner when I'm eating with my husband.

    Looks yummy! What's your onigiri made from? Was there enough to eat? Love bentos but I really cram millions of veggies and fruits into them. haha

C25K W5D2

Monday, April 26, 2010

Hey, I ran for 8 minutes at a go and I was feeling fine. Kept walking with the cool down until I got to 300 calories. The most frustrating thing about the C25K program is it's a lot less exercise than I was getting when I was doing the elliptical every day and I blame that in part for the fact that I'm not losing any weight. Of course, I'm not being religious in my food tracking either so I'm sure that's not helping. I'm just getting frustrated. I want out of this body and I was hoping I'd already have made some real progress by now. I mean, I've got two-four pounds from when I started SP that have really stayed off but I'm facing the fact that I'm up a pants size from where I was a year ago and even if I have more stamina I'm just frustrated. I feel better but the scale and the pants, they don't agree that I'm making progress. Grrrr....


Bento Lunch 1-20-10

I still have the pesky cold and have done no cardio or exercise for a week now, but at least my lunch is healthy:

Salmon poached in white wine and a mustard dill sauce, a roll, a salad with fat free honey Dijon dressing. Not too shabby. The tangerine has already been eaten :)

We do what we can.

Bento Lunch 1-19-10

Monday, January 18, 2010

I've been sick with a low grade cold for almost a week now and haven't been doing my runs. Plus I was out of town for the last few days of last week, so I've been off track. Tomorrow I'm going to do some low impact cardio, probably the elliptical, to get back into things. Also in keeping with getting back into things here's my lunch for tomorrow:

It's left over very high end Mac and Cheese from my lunch out last week (truffles and prosciutto, so very very yummy, not diet food though) and to balance that I have a lovely salad with Laughing Cow Light Swiss in lieu of dressing.

Bento Lunch 1-13-10

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I've been putting my bento lunches up here for a while but realizing I will eventually run out of space in my photos album I thought it would be fun to blog them as well. So here's tomorrow's lunch:

It features left over scallops and whole grain bowties in a low fat cheese sauce (a lighter version of this recipe: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recip
), baby carrots, grape tomatoes and Laughing Cow Light French Onion Cheese. Really simple to throw together, fairly cute and oh so tasty.

    The pasta with scallops sounds wonderful! I'll have to try making it sometime. I also like how you got so many veggies in your bento.

    Oh, that is cute!

The title caught my eye -- I lived in Japan in 1981-1982 (U.S. Navy) and got to know the "bento" pretty well. Your idea is great, especially when lunch smiles back at you.

I'll have to try this for my teenagers. Thanks for the idea.
