Bento #6: Shrimp Sushi!

Last night was a bit like Christmas. I couldn't sleep, I was so excited about this bento. It was my first attempt at sushi, and I could not wait to taste it. Between the rolls and my baby blue origini (made with natural food coloring I bought at Whole foods ages ago), it was going to be a fantastic lunch!

The bento is a bit higher in non-net carbs than normal, but I thought the sheer excitement of being able to eat sushi again more than made up for it. I am currently doing induction again, and this fit in fine with it, and the higher fiber count is always good for me!

4 pieces of Low Carb Sushi (recipe here)
Origini stuffed with bacon
Hot dog "flowers" using half of a Hebrew National 1 carb dog
roast beef rolls with a julienned snow pea
2 pieces of shrimp
mixed baby greens

Total carbs: 10.7
Fiber: 5.3
Net Carbs: 5.4

Bento #5: Salmon Fingers

Today's lunch was one of my favorites. Salmon Fingers, with sugar snap peas, cauliflower rice and roasted shrimp. To make the salmon fingers, I simply sliced up a salmon fillet, rubbed a bit of mayo on the pieces and fried them in a bit of oil on the stove top. The shrimp was done in my toaster oven while I did that, and the rice was pre-made.

Total Carbs: 8 grams
Fiber: 2.7
Net Carbs: 5.3

Bento #4: Green Goddess Tuna

I realize I haven't blogged in a bit. My health took a turn for the worse, and it took me a bit to catch back up with my internet use. I have, however, continued to work on my bento lunches, and I was even able to purchase a new bento box. I got it at a local store called Value City. It was a whole dollar, which excited me a bit too much. It's a dual level box and it's very nice to have, and for the price, I can't beat it.

Today's lunch was Green Goddess Tuna on baby greens (recipe at Low Carb Foodie), roast beef, sugar snap peas and a mozzarella string cheese.
