Pointed Bento

Monday, May 17th, 2010

That’s right, I did it. I realized that I needed to hold myself more accountable for what I eat so I joined Weight Watchers. The plan is to at least follow it through until my sister’s wedding in October and then focus on maintenance. However, I promise this won’t become a diet blog. Really, I want to focus more on better and whole foods rather than talking about what strange non-food based packaged product I can eat for hours without racking up the points. Food is not my enemy, and I’m the one who is choosing what to put into my body. Eating crap makes me feel like crap, so it’s time to move on for now.

While I do have a more exciting durian post in the works, here is an example of my new quickie but good for me bento:



1/2 blood orange
1 cup turkey breast
1 plum tomato with cilantro, and kalamata olives
English cucumber with seasoned rice wine vinegar

Point Total: 8

Notes: Seasoned rice wine vinegar has a surprising amount of points. I am guessing this is because “seasoned” rice wine vinegar has the addition of sake, salt, and sugar. Lesson learned.
