1. Make turkey roll up:

  • Place a slice of cucumber and avocado in the middle of a piece of turkey.
  • Roll up to create a mini-turkey wrap! 

 

2. To assemble your lunch box: Choose small amounts of each "paleo approved" finger foods. The point of a bento is to have 4-6 easy to eat foods that make a complete meal.

 

3. You can mix and match, but try to include a lean protein source (turkey, chicken breast, leftover meat etc.), vegetables (baby carrots, raw broccoli, cucumber, tomatoes), fruit (berries, sliced apples, seasonal fruits) and a source of good fat (almonds, avocado, olives, almond butter).
