I used to work for Starbucks and, as some of you may know employees often get to take home the leftovers – if their bosses have hearts. 😉 This means that quite often I came home with a few of Starbucks’ delicious Protein Bistro Boxes, and many other delicious baked goods. One day I was at home and had a craving for a bistro box, but, being a poor student who doesn’t waste (sorry) her money on Starbucks food I was not about to go out and buy one. It was in that moment that I realized how simple it would be to pull together a Protein Bistro Box at home and make any number of variations of it!
Bistro Boxes are ALL THE RAGE right now. As you may know, I’m not all that trendy. I do things at my own pace , and thus, I don’t own a “Bistro Box” (although I think I may pick some up soon). If you’ve never heard of them, they’re basically tupperware containers with partitions that you can use to separate different foods. They seem to be perfect for cold lunches at school, in my opinion.
Honestly, I’m not going to put a recipe for this on here, I think you probably already know how to make toast and slice some apples and cheese. But, I will put one up for hard-boiled eggs because I know that not everyone knows how to make those.
This recipe/idea is perfect for a filling breakfast, lunch, or snack at any time. Just a tip: If you plan to box it up and bring it with you, toss a little lemon juice on your apples so they don’t brown. Enjoy your protein packed “Bistro Box”!
