WHAT I EAT IN A DAY ON WW PURPLE – Piggy Bento Box / Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

DAILY MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
ℹ️ iTRACKBITES Better Balance / πŸ’œ WW PURPLE
🍎 Whole Foods Focused
1️⃣8️⃣ Daily Points / 4️⃣2️⃣ Weekly Points

🍎 I generally only eat 2 meals a day with fruit for snacks so points per meal may be higher than you are used to seeing.  If you substitute sugar free/fat free products, your points may be significantly less in some cases.

Here is my first completed character Bento Box! All handmade except the mini Bao Bun.

THIS LITTLE PIGGY BENTO CONTENTS:
πŸ”ΉDragonfruit Powder Dyed Rice Balls
πŸ”ΉWatermelon Radish, Carrot and Cucumber Flowers
πŸ”ΉTeriyaki Spam/Pineapple/Cabbage/Carrot Roll Up
πŸ”ΉPeach Mini Bao Steamed Bun (purchased)
πŸ”ΉEdamame & Homemade Pickled Onion

So fun! This was my first attempt at making a bento box. I have a 1/2 serving of pink rice left and lots of cute pink bunny stuff for bentos, so I’m going to do a Bunny Bento tomorrow!
