– Munchies, welcome to the last
episode of this miniseries.
I hope you’ve enjoyed it.
If you want more miniseries like this,
give this video a thumbs up.
Today we are tackling
the picky-eater subject
of embracing boring food.
Picky eaters can like
plain, and that’s okay.
That means today plain is the new trendy.
Today, we are tackling a BYOBL.
That’s a build your own boring lunch.
First up, fruit skewers,
fruit on a stick is my jam.
You know this by now.
Keep it colorful.
I went with strawberries and green grapes,
but almost anything can work.
Go with what your picky eater likes,
or maybe sneak on a few new items too.
Entice even more by including a fruit dip.

I combine yogurt, Greek, or
plain, or even dairy-free
if preferred, with honey to
taste and a bit of cinnamon.
So easy!

But it makes the fruit on a
stick have even more intention
and appeal, plus, Greek yogurt
will give some protein too.

I’ve got more bento boxes
and tons of other fun,
healthy content coming all the time.
Letting picky eaters build your own
is a great way to encourage
them to enjoy food.
I’m setting up a DIY taco lunch today.
That means tortillas.
Can you sneak in a whole grain variation
or corn-based instead of white flour?
Work with what you can.
I’ve added plain, shredded
chicken just seasoned with salt
to keep it simple and less intimidating,
shredded cheese, because
it makes almost anything
more palatable and exciting to eat,
plus, you get extra protein.
I’m also including a
mild, picky-eater-friendly
tomato salsa with some sneaky veggies.
I combine chopped tomatoes,
bell pepper, cilantro,
optional, for flavor, same
with red onion, lime juice,
and salt in a food processor.
Pulse until dippable.
If you prefer a chunkier salsa, pulse less
or just chop the ingredients
to a size you prefer.
Pulsing this integrates everything,
so it’s easier to scoop and
easier to hide ingredients.
Get creative with this.

In addition to our tacos,
I’m including a popcorn
as a snack.
I used an air popper to pop my corn
and keeping this whole-grain snack light.
To add a twist, I spray the
kernels with cooking spray
and sprinkle on some
cinnamon, tossing to coat.
This gives it a sweet taste
without the added sugar.
You could, of course, add
the sugar if you want.
And that is the
build-your-own-boring-lunch box.
It’s not so boring, right?
We really took common ingredients
and turned them into something fun.
That is what it’s all about.
Remember, take what you want
and leave what you don’t
with all of these.
This is just healthy inspiration
that you can make your own.
Also, I do have an entire bento eBook
