Picnic’s are Fun & Yummy

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own.

It’s so nice to be back in a state that you can enjoy the beautiful weather. San Diego’s weather is so beautiful this time of year. It makes Picnic’s fun and relaxing. Hubby is out on his first underway, so I figured it would be a good idea to take them out to our balcony and let them have some fun.

I don’t know about you? But, we love peanut butter. I was playing around with different ingredients I had in my refrigerator, not really knowing what the outcome would be. Much to my surprise, it actually came out delicious. It’s makes a great dip for bananas, apples, strawberries, even chips.

Banana Oatmeal Bread

sf

My husband and I have been trying to ‘eat clean’. I am a sweet bread, dessert lover, kinda girl. This year though, Thanksgiving will be all about healthier choices. Since we are a banana loving family, we always tend to have banana bread in all holiday menu’s. While searching for healthy banana bread recipes, I didn’t really find what I was looking for, so instead I used the basic info and tweaked it to my likings. 

Banana Oatmeal Bread
A healthy, delicious choice for banana lovers.

This recipe does not contain butter instead I substituted for StonyField Plain LowFat Yogurt. It’s so awesome to know that Yogurt is good for you. I recently started substituting yogurt for sour cream in my rice, tacos and it’s amazing to notice not much of a huge change except for the HUGE fact of course that Yogurt is good for you and sour cream not so much.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I froze 2 loafs for thanksgiving already, I also love to use it for my daughters bento snack, since it’s a healthy choice. Be sure to check out  Stonyfield Yogurt Substitution Guide-2 interesting stuff.

Bento in Style with a Laptop Lunch Box

As some of you bento-ers might know, finding the perfect size bento box take a few bento boxes later.. the size of the bento box will determine how much food you want to add. Smaller bento boxes work amazing solely for snacks or quick lunch. Laptop Lunch box works amazing for Lunch/ Snack/ On the Go box.

I came across Bento-ware Laptop Lunch box while searching #bentobox on instagram.

Initially I thought I would have to pack more because of its size, but much to my surprise I packed what I would normally add in any other bento box, with the exception of course that her food was not crammed or smooshed. I also loved that on the right side of the box it also has a separate compartment for her cutlery.

The Bento Lunch Box is very special, its one of my favorite and currently in our rotation beacause its convenient, I can pack items that would normally spill in other bento boxes (ie. yogurt, sauces) Adryana really loves this bento box. I also love that it helps us parents keep a good food portion control. 

I also used our Bento Lunch box for my hubby’s lunch. He was getting a bit jealous to why I was not packing his lunch in a cool lunch box. So we (adryana and I ) had to share with him as well. This funny face here was him saying “what is this”? hehe it contained some fruit snacks. He thought the laptop lunch was really cool, and requested we use it again but this time with out the two containers which held the chicken and rice, that way he could dip his spoon in with out his rice spilling over.
