Low-carb salad bento (Bento #283)
My dear sweet husband has presented me with quite a challenge this year. He requested that I make his bentos low-carb. Not zero-carb, but he doesn’t want rice and bread every day. It’s a lot harder making bentos this way, for me at least, because I find myself out of ideas for things to keep him full. I’m going to have to get quite creative here soon, lol.
This bento wasn’t too bad because of the salad. I think using these peppery and nutty greens are a little more satisfying to eat than the standard romaine lettuce, so I’ll probably be relying on them a lot. Along with the salad he has leftover beef stir-fry, pluot and plum wedges, grapes, a hard boiled egg, and a mini-Babybel cheese.
I’m looking forward to seeing how well I can keep up with this challenge. If you have any low-carb bento ideas, I can use all the help I can get!
