Husband Bento #5
The husband opted to lose weight over the next few months and as such decided to take on the Atkin's diet as his means for doing this, along with some exercise and good sleep. It's been a struggle to try and keep a vegetarian diet while he noms mostly meats and cheeses and eggs. I love my tofu, and I can't wait until he hits maintenance where we can share stirfries and things again. I feel bad that I can't really joyously dance in to the kitchen and whip up a masterpiece for him right now. Too much stopping and thinking about if he can have something or not.
When math becomes involved in my food I tend to throw up my hands in confusion and walk away. My hope is that THIS time, though, maybe I got it right.
Prosciutto wrapped mini mozarella balls on a bed of lettuce and a salad of cooked spinach with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and cracked fresh pepper, a peppadew stuffed with smoked ham and cheese, a half cup of cottage cheese on a bed of lettuce again, and decorated with half an avocado, sliced, and two poorly made prosciutto roses. Avocados also got the fresh ground pepper treatment.
I hope he enjoys it and it fills him up. I loved making it. I also get to eat that other half of an avocado for lunch tomorrow!
