Tuna fish salad is a staple in my house.  I eat it on bread, with crackers, or on a bed of lettuce.  It is so easy to make, and everyone has their own favorite tuna salad variation. This week, I decided to put an asian spin on my favorite tuna salad recipe.  I added roasted […]

Asian Chicken Meatballs

These asian chicken meatballs are so delicious.  I make them all time.  Perfect to eat as is, with rice, or as a sub sandwich. After making my meatballs, I toss them in a sweet and tangy asian BBQ type sauce and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. These meatballs are perfect to eat hot or at […]

salmon & potato cake salad

Are you are salmon fan?  For me it is hit or miss.  Sometimes I LOVE it, and other times not so much.  It really depends on how it is prepared.  I tend to love it marinated in some type of asian sauce, then grilled or broiled.  If it is too oily, I tend to not […]

Israeli Salad & Grilled Chicken

I know I say this all the time, but I really love packing my leftovers for lunch the next day.  It’s just so easy, and eliminates the never-ending, “What am I having for lunch today?” question.

Greek Lamb Rolls

I’m back.  Done with my much needed hiatus.  Life just seemed to be coming at me non-stop, and I just needed to take a step back and chill for awhile.  I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about ways to revamp my blog.  Ways to make it better/more relevant.  I love blogging about bento boxes, […]

My Paleo Lunch Box ~ Bento 152

May 20, 2014
Paleo lunch

Friends are always asking me, “Rox, what should I pack for a healthy lunch?”  ”How do I know if what I am packing is the right portion?”  ”What if I am still hungry after?” Many of us eat meals loaded with processed/artificial ingredients. As a result, these meals do not provide our bodies with enough […]

Paleo Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Last week, I wanted to make a sweet and savory paleo meal.  I had just purchased some fresh organic kale and sweet potatoes, and decided to incorporate the two vegetables together. I thought about keeping the dish vegan, but then decided to add some lean organic ground beef for some extra protein. The sweetness from […]
