Today Rob has an admittedly large bento for one person - I just had to do it! lol
I've been wanting to use this box for such a long time, and once I had decided I wanted to do a wrap, this was the opportunity. None of the other boxes we have could accomodate the wrap without smushing it.
I bought these tortillas at Target because they are a healthy version and only 1 point on WW - they are not the big burrito size, but more like a fajita size (maybe just a little larger). Since I had never bought this brand before, I didn't realize how soft/delicate they are - I just hope it holds up ok.
I have had these wrap pockets in a drawer for probably 2 years now and finally remembered them for this bento :) Seemed like a perfect way to add color and interest to Rob's bento :)
So, the wrap is a Buffalo Chicken wrap:
3 oz Deli Buffalo Chicken Breast
2 Tbs. Marie's Lite Bleu Cheese dressing
1 Tbs Archer Farms Buffalo Bleu Cheese dip
Organic Spring Lettuce Mix
This wrap is something I often do for my lunch - using the deli chicken and using less dressing or no dip and adding a tsp. olive oil makes it a good lunch on WW - When I make it for myself (on the larger 1 pt La Tortilla wrap), I mix the lettuce w/ the dressing/dip and the olive oil so I can 'shrink it' a bit to fit a good 2 cups or more onto my wrap.
Once I had the wrap placed into the box, I added the salad on each side, then the shredded carrots and red cabbage and topped it with a couple wheat gluten cakes I got on our last trip to Mitsuwa - aren't they pretty? :)
The second tier contains my homemade Macaroni Salad (I'm loving the purple in it), a clementine on a little more lettuce, yogurt topped w/ a frozen strawberry. Lite Hidden Valley Ranch dressing in the cup topped w/ black sesame seeds, Wasabi almonds, 2 Hi Chews and White Chocolate covered pretzels (left over from Christmas) --- Whew - that's a lot!
I just spoke to him - he ate every bit of it :o I really didn't think he would.
