I love that these bistro boxes are small, filling, packable, and so easy to whip up a few of them to have on hand through out the week. I've found that if I have to make my lunch every day that I will tend to either skip it all together (which is a bad idea) or trade out my more health conscious lunch for something that's quicker and more grab-and-go (even worse!)
When I have my little prepped bistro boxes though, I don't have any excuse to not sit down and enjoy my wholesome and stackable style meal.
Today I decided to go with raw vegetables/fruits, lots of seasoning, hummus and a hardboiled egg. Initially I wasn't planning on adding the egg in there, but when it came down to it, I just thought it gave this otherwise snack seeming meal more sustenance and protein too!
While this may seem like a scant little meal to some, I promise that it's perfectly filling. It kept me full and satisfied all the way up until dinner time, which can be a difficult thing to achieve a lot of times.
The seasoning here is key for me. Let's face it, raw vegetables can be boring and I feel that while perfectly suitable on their own it never hurts to give them a little extra curb appeal when it comes to trying to get yourself to eat more of them!
While I used a lemon pepper seasoning here, feel free to use any salt free seasoning of your preference here on the hummus, avocado, and/or egg. The whole idea here is to create something easy and healthy that you're excited to eat at lunch time.
I love to pair this lunch with some nice green tea with a touch of honey to give me that final boost through my afternoon.
