  • Hi, I'm Sadia, welcome to Pick Up Limes.

  • So it was my birthday recently,

  • feel free to show me a little bit of belated birthday love by clicking on that subscribe button.

  • Now one of the gifts I got for my birthday were these bento boxes,

  • and I thought it would be a lot of fun to share with you some meal ideas using them,

  • starting with breakfast first.

  • Now each of the meals you are going to see me make here takes only 5 minutes,

  • so there really are no excuses when it comes to having a wholesome breakfast in the morning.

  • And you can enjoy this at home or you can take it on the road with you.

  • And for me personally, this was enough for both my breakfast as well as for my morning snack.

  • But I'll just show you what I mean.

  • Let's get started.

  • Here we go with breakfast number one.

  • So we're going to start by making this deconstructed yogurt granola and fruit parfait.

  • I just started by cutting up some kiwi, and I also used some fresh raspberries,

  • but you can use whatever fruit you have on hand or whatever fruit you enjoy.

  • And then on the side I poured in some soy yogurt,

  • I didn't want to mix it together because I didn't want it to get soggy,

  • but you can use any plant yogurt you like.

  • And then I also included this roasted pecan and cranberry granola that is so delicious.

  • Now, the recipe is already up on the Pick Up Limes blog,

  • so I'll put the link in the description box below,

  • but I've also made a video recipe that I'll link at the end of this video.

  • And I usually make this granola recipe on the weekends,

  • that way it just lasts throughout the week and makes for quick breakfasts whenever I need them.

  • So back to the bento box.

  • I always like to sprinkle on some ground flax seeds as well as some chia seeds,

  • just because of the healthy omega fats that these offer.

  • I also included some coconut flakes.

  • And it's that easy to make this deconstructed parfait.

  • And then I just mix it all together when I'm ready to eat it.

  • On to my morning snack.

  • It's pretty much just a peanut butter and banana sandwich,

  • except for instead of bread I use these whole-grain crackers

  • that I cut in half and then spread on a generous amount of peanut butter.

  • Then using a ripe banana,

  • I cut it into very thick slices to place on top.

  • And just a little bit of peanut butter on the other side to help it all stick together

  • and so that it doesn't come apart in my lunchbox.

  • Then served it with some fresh oranges on the side.

  • And that was my morning snack on this morning.

  • So breakfast number one is done.

  • On to breakfast number two.

  • So to make this mashed bean and avocado sandwich,

  • we're going to start by using half a cup of pinto beans,

  • then a tablespoon of salsa,

  • half a teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of paprika,

  • and then we mash it together until it's all well combined.

  • And then on two pieces of whole-grain bread I put on some baby spinach,

  • and then distributed that mashed bean mixture that we just created.

  • Now if you don't have pinto beans, any beans that you have on hand will do.

  • Then I put on some chives, some tomato slices, as well as some ripe avocado.

  • And then I drizzled on some sriracha hot sauce,

  • because I think the combination of that with the avocado and mashed beans is out of this world.

  • Sprinkled on a little bit of freshly ground pepper,

  • and that's it to make that sandwich.

  • I also served it with some fresh strawberries on the side.

  • And that was my breakfast on this day.

  • As for my morning snack,

  • this is another orange that I sliced up this time.

  • You'll notice that I like to prepare my oranges.

  • I find that if an orange goes into my bag whole, it's going to come home with me,

  • unless I prepare it in some way so that it's ready to eat.

  • And then I also had this with some roasted peanuts and dried cranberries,

  • to kind of make my own homemade trail mix,

  • as well as these dried figs that I'm absolutely obsessed with.

  • And to be honest, this was a bit much for me just as a morning snack,

  • so it trailed off into being my afternoon snack as well.

  • But that's it for breakfast number two.

  • Super super easy.

  • And for the finale, breakfast number three.

  • This is a chunky monkey banana sandwich, or whatever you want to call it.

  • So to make this you're going to need two slices of whole grain bread,

  • and then spread on a generous amount of almond butter or whatever nut butter you've got on hand.

  • I then sprinkled on some hemp seeds again, for those healthy omega fats that it offers,

  • and then another ripe banana cut into thick chunks.

  • Now what makes this incredibly delicious are these roasted coconuts,

  • that I made just by dry roasting some regular coconuts on medium-high heat,

  • until it became fragrant and golden.

  • And then using this Canadian pure maple syrup,

  • that a friend gave me when I most recently visited Vancouver,

  • I use just about half a teaspoon to drizzle on top,

  • and it made it so absolutely delicious and sweet.

  • And so that's it to make this sandwich,

  • which is kind of a fun twist on the traditional nut butter and banana sandwich.

  • And then on the side, I just served it with some fresh grapes.

  • And that was my breakfast on this third morning.

  • As for the morning snack it really doesn't get easier than this.

  • It's just two pieces of rice cakes,

  • as well as the leftover salsa and avocado from yesterday's breakfast,

  • that I then mix together and it kind of makes this faux kind of salsa guacamole dip for those rice crackers.

  • Then on the side, I put in some mixed greens,

  • to enjoy the leftover salsa with

  • once the rice cakes were done,

  • and some fresh basil as well.

  • And that's it for breakfast number three.

  • How easy was that!

  • Now in addition to having breakfast like this,

  • I'm also making sure to stay super hydrated throughout the morning,

  • by having either water or tea or both.

  • And I've also gotten into the habit of taking my Vitamin D and B12 supplements first thing in the morning.

  • Now if you liked this video, you are absolutely going to love the next one,

  • which is also going to be bento box style,

  • but the theme is going to be lunch and afternoon snack ideas.

  • So be sure to subscribe so you don't miss out on it.

  • And if you found any inspiration from this video, be sure to give it a thumbs up.

  • Alright thanks for stopping by, I'll see you in the next video.
