First Bento. Salmon lettuce wraps and curried eggs
I was given this box for Christmas. It is a nice small 2 tier box. As you can see, I managed to pack it pretty full. I am on a Weight Watchers diet and I try to keep all my lunches under 8 points.
Wrapped in the lettuce is salmon salad. It consists of canned salmon, shredded carrots, celery, some dill relish, a little low fat mayo, and some hot sauce. I then rolled some of it up in the lettuce and made a lettuce cup with some in it too.
The gyoza are veggie filled. I discovered if I use mushrooms in the mixture, it fools my brain into thinking there is meat. Therefore I feel fuller. I am assuming it is due to the texture. Anyway, in the gyoza is spinach, mushrooms, garlic, carrot, and zucchini. I sprayed a little bit of cooking spray in a hot pan and pan fried them.
The eggs on celery were an interesting discovery. They are called curried eggs. I was surprised how good they were. It is just mashed up egg, a small touch of low fat mayo and a bit of curry powder. All I have to say is Yummy! The celery provided a nice crunch.
