Bacon Burger: Paleo Bento Lunch #1

Here is my first ever Paleo Bento lunch!

If you never heard of the Paleo diet, it is where you basically eat like our cavemen ancestors did. You eliminate everything from your diet but meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts and healthy fats/oils. I have been Paleo for 2 months now and I LOVE it. I feel great! I am no longer tired everyday and my stomach feels better than ever! I eat about 80% Paleo so not all things shown in the Paleo lunches will be Paleo. Everyone's body can tolerate different things and what is shown, is just what my body can tolerate.

In this lunch:

  • Bun-less Burger with Bacon and Sauteed Mushrooms
  • 1/3 a Banana
  • Cherry Tomatoes

My First Bento! Toddler Bento #1

Well it's here! Today is the day I start making bentos! Here is my first bento. This is for my son who will be referred to as Gumball from now on :]

I do not use pics in his lunches because he is only 1 and a half so chances are he will either try to eat them and choke or be too distracted by them and not even touch his lunch. 

Please bare with me on the lighting of these pics for the next few days, I am still getting the hang of this. 


In this lunch:

  • Watermelon and Sandwich Sushi (my first attempt at it, it came out ok, but could def. be better!)
  • GoGo Squeez applesauce pouch
  • Ranch Veggie Straws

Gathering Supplies

Over the past few weeks I have been gathering supplies to start my family's bento journey. I have seen many people making bento lunches for their kids online and knew I HAD to try it! About a year ago I decided to give it a go, but at that time my son was not old enough to eat food and on all the days I did bring food to work with me I ended up getting sick, as I have many gastric related issues. After going to several doctors and adopting a new diet I am now able to eat lunch once again! I am on the Paleo diet and I absolutely love it. All the lunches you see that I make myself will be Paleo friendly. My son and husband are not Paleo however, so I will have some normal fun lunches as well!

I can not wait to start this epic new adventure! All my supplies are ready to go! Lunches will start being made on Friday August the 29th.

Wish me luck!
