I find myself always buying the Egg and Cheese Bistro Box from Starbucks. I decided to save some money by creating a DIY healthier version. It’s high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. It’s also a great portable lunch to take to work!

These are the containers I use:

Meal Prep Containers 3 Compartment [15 pack, 32oz] – Bento Box Food Containers BPA Free Bento Boxes For Adults Lunch Containers – Plastic Containers with Lids Food Storage Containers with Lids

Ingredients:

1. Apple (1/2 fruit)

2. Grapes (1/2 cup)

(you can use any fruit you want if you don’t like apples or grapes)

3. Eggs (2)

I buy eggs that are already boiled from Whole Foods – but you can boil your own with this egg cooker:

Dash Rapid Egg Cooker: 6 Egg Capacity Electric Egg Cooker for Hard Boiled Eggs, Poached Eggs, Scrambled Eggs, or Omelets with Auto Shut Off Feature – Black

4. Mini Babybel Light (1)

Mini Babybel Light (26 ct.)

5. Finn Crisp Rye Crackers (4)

Finn Crisp Crispbread, Original, 7-Ounce (Pack of 9)

6. RX Nut Butter (1 Pack)

RXBAR, RX Nut Butter, Variety Pack, 1.13oz, 10 Squeezable Packs, Low Carb, Keto Snack, No Added Sugar, Gluten Free

Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter is my favorite!!!

My Bistro Box has more calories, but that is mainly because of the much larger portion of nut butter in mine. My box has 7g more protein and 6g more fiber, with the same amount of fat.
