I have been so bloated from all the parties and rich foods of the holidays. I am looking for lean proteins, good complex carbs, low fat foods, and lots of fresh vegetables. I haven't been getting enough protein so I really loaded it up for dinner last night. I have a mixture of cooked grains mixed with fresh carrots, celery, cabbage and green onions dressed with a bit of rice vinegar. Lean chicken from the deli counter of the supermarket. And eggs! Yes, eggs. Notice they are quite pale? I used one whole egg and 3 egg whites to make these tasty, fluffy, light but packed with protein scrambled eggs. It was very satisfying.
I have been inspired by Biggie over at Lunch in a Box with all her wonder healthy bento box foods. So I jumped on the bandwagon. I had forgotten that my dear wife had purchased some Japanese lunch boxes a while ago. I took them out of storage and put them to use. You can see some leftovers here. There's some of my seaweed and mushroom soup, fresh vegetables, more deli chicken breast and leftover cooked grain salad. Thanks Biggie! Now I just have to make time to prepare more. I was scrambling this morning to get this together.
