Give in to the Bistro Box
Ever splurge on pricey Bistro Boxes in the prepared food section of your favorite grocery store? They’re usually packed with things like rich pasta salads, hard-boiled eggs and other tasty but sometimes not super-healthy combinations.
If you’re taking your lunch to work or even just bringing home dinner, you can indulge all the time on Bistro Boxes (the grown-up version of Bento Boxes for kids) without the cost or calories overload. Crispy Green Brand Ambassador Kristen McCaffrey from Slender Kitchen, has put together a list of tips for packing your own Bistro Box at home, along with a full-array of ideas for you to pack your very own box, with your favorite salads, whole-wheat crackers, veggies, fruits and nuts.
McCaffrey recommends pairing each box with a healthy bag of Crispy Fruit “because I absolutely love their sweet flavor and crunchy texture. It’s the perfect, guilt-free addition to your meal since they have no added sugar and contain 100% real fruit. Plus, you never have to worry about the fruit spoiling or turning brown.”
If you’re looking for more packable food ideas, try a few snacks from “Our Favorite After-School Snacks for Kids (and Adults)”. Food like seaweed snacks, cheese sticks and turkey jerky will go a long way to keeping your lunches fresh and fun meal combos. After all, why should the kids have all the fun?
