Here we go… starting off 2012 with a relatively healthy bento: baked salmon, egg omelette, fried brown rice, and broccoli. Embellishments include a sprig of kaiware (radish sprouts), black sesame seeds, nori, and beni shoga (pickled red ginger).
I consider this bento healthier than not because I used sprouted brown rice, just a dash of olive oil and low salt shoyu for the fried rice. The two-egg omelette is missing one yolk. And the mayo on the broccoli is made from grape seed oil. The baked salmon is… um…baked!
Most of the ingredients are organic as well!
We try our very best to eat the better options, a practice that we abandoned during the holidays. So now with the new year we are focused and ready tackle our cravings with smarter choices.
I hope to keep it up to at least through February. Do you think we’ll make it? Ha ha!
