Clean Eating Bento Boxes

Bento boxes are a easy and colorful way to get a variety into your lunch. They’re also great for lunches on the go, especially during the summer! I tried to make mine as clean-eating and fun as possible by adding in a mixture of protein, fruit and veggies. For this particular ‘box,’ I added in some homemade peanut butter hummus to dip in. It tastes great with both the veggies and apple slices

With this Bento Box, I went with Spinach Turkey Pinwheels with a side of grapes, carrots and cucumber slices. The wrap itself is spinach and tastes delicious paired with slices of low-sodium deli turkey, cheddar cheese and baby spinach. Another easy and clean-eating lunch that you can throw together in 5 minutes and take on-the-go!
