Tiffin Tuesday - A Snack Box

Would you believe you can have a complete bento box full of snack foods and still eat healthy?

You can!

One of the harder parts of packing a bento is: how do I make my loved ones eat their veggies?

The answer: dip dip hooray! From guacamole to hummus to - in this case - peanut sauce - a tasty dip makes veggies even more attractive! I had some leftover peanut sauce in the fridge (you can find a recipe here - the surrounding text is German but the actual recipe in English - this makes a lot and I usually scale it down using a 250 g jar of organic peanut butter).

There is red bell pepper, cucumber and carrot in the box, a dollop of the peanut dip (well I admit: and a small Japanese banana-flavored candy). Plus rice crackers with seaweed, nuts, mango cubes, cherries, a French snacking salami for protein, and an (organic) apple. Napkin optional.

Prep time: 5 Mintes for cutting the vegetables into sticks, and packing.

This is such a great idea - especially for kids' lunches. It just goes to show you that it's pretty easy to be healthy and fun at the same time. Good job!!
