Avocado Sonoma Chicken Salad - taken from YourHealthista. Very yummy and filling! Though, I forgot to add in the celery when I bought some just for this recipe.
Other differences - I cheated and bought pecans that were already roasted.

Tomorrow’s lunch: whole-wheat spaghetti pasta stir-fried Asian-style with the “hodgepodge” frozen veggies mix from TJ’s (includes baby corn, carrots, water chestnuts, broccoli, mushrooms, sweet bell peppers, snap peas, and onion). To include some protein I added some sweet scrambled egg. Everything was tossed in the usual soy sauce, mirin, and togarashi, dash of sugar mix, then garnished with a sprinkle of furiake.
Cheese (lite cheddar and a lite Baby Bel) with whole wheat crackers, cantaloupe, and cucumber slices. As with most of my lunches in box-shaped containers, I tried to arrange this in a faux-bento style. I even used some cute silicone dividers (though, probably not as designed).
I was really stoked to use my new Glasslock container pictured here. Hilariously enough, I compulsively bought this one at a grocery store - which meant it wasn’t very cost effective. A few days later, I found them at the nearby Ichiban Kan store for MUCH less. I caved in and got another one in a smaller size.
Bento boxes are super cute, but I’ve been a little iffy about toting and heating my lunches in plastic containers (says the person who still uses Tupperware). Plus, I’m always doubtful that they would ever hold enough food for my appetite!
Teriyaki fried brown rice with egg and tomato with a side of steamed broccoli and a few fried strips of andouille sausage to fill in that tiny space.
I used this recipe for the fried rice.
I’ve run into a lunch block. Pretty much most of my lunches are beginning to look the same so one of the solutions I could think of that I could pull off at this time was to add more color. In this case, it was red which didn’t do much. Oh well. As long as it tastes good!
