Copycat Starbucks Protein Bistro Box

Good afternoon guys! I hope you’re having a great Monday. I’m really excited to share my lunch with you today. Since this weekend was a little bit lazy, I didn’t quite plan or prep my lunches like I should have. Figuring I was going to have to buy something today, I started thinking about lunch options during my morning workout. (Because who doesn’t think about food while working out?)

Not really in the mood for my go-to purchase, a salad, I thought I would opt for Starbucks’ Protein Bistro Box. It’s a favorite of mine, and I find it to be a filling and satisfying lunch or after-workout snack.

Starbucks’ version contains:

  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • handful grapes
  • sliced apples
  • white cheddar wedges
  • multigrain muesli bread
  • honeyed peanut butter

Then I thought, since I hard-boiled some eggs over the weekend, why not try to put together my own version?

My Protein Lunch Box contains:

  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • handful raw almonds
  • 1 macintosh apple
  • 1 1/2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 slice of bread with peanut butter

As a side note – I’m glad I took a picture of everything before transporting it to work, because the cheese slices looked a little worse for the wear by the time I got into the office. 😉

How About You?

What’s your favorite copycat recipe?
