Mommy's lean lunches

I forgot to post my lunch last Friday. It does not look like much, but I have to have morning and afternoon snacks/mini meals which typically includes a protein and veg/fruit (not pictured).

 I'm trying this healthy eating thing along with working out. It's going really well. I'm not doing any specific "diet". Just trying to eat healthy. I'm trying to get 5-6 meals daily. Minimizing processed food. Minimizing grains, pasta and rice (which is difficult for this Filipino girl).  Lots of veggies and occasional fruit and focusing on protein intake with good fats like olive oil and avocados.  My exercise regimen Insanity® (day 43!) along with bootcamp Mondays and Wednesdays, and Zumba on Tuesday nights. 

Today's lunch:

and check out a new addition to our collection. This 2 tiered bento box is super cute! 


  1. Love the new box! They both look great & super yum & healthy. Great job, Momma!

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
