Funky Drink & Today's Bento

Good Morning!  How was your weekend!?  Mine was great!  I will have several posts today and this week - clumping together MANY things that have been going on in my world in the last week or two!  I thought I would kick thinks off with my morning beverage!

I'll just call it a FUNKY DRINK for right now but it's literally thrown together!

I used Garden Of Life's Perfect Food Yerba Mate - about a scoop - maybe a bit less and about 16 or 17 ounces of this Pomegranate flavored water I found a while back with Aloe "chunks" in it.  I know it sounds weird but the flavor is quite good!  I ALMOST reminds me of Strawberry Milk (way back in the day).  This FUNKY DRINK is tasty - slightly sweet and fruity, benefits of aloe, and Yerba Mate for energy, paired with a GREAT product from my friends at Garden Of Life!  What a great way to start the day!

Remember the insulated bag I bought for my Bento Box stuff!?  Well, I think I forgot to mention that it has 2 stretchy pouches on each side.  If you look to the right you will see a pink breast cancer awareness reusable bottle in one of the pockets.  That's what I put this FUNKY DRINK in today and brought it with me to work.

What inside the bag?  Well, let me tell you!

It's my Bento for today!
From top left - Homemade Corn Chips, then a little bit of Vegan Miso Mayo which I will be posting about in the future - it's an awesome condiment - then a few Falafels, and on the bottom Cheesy Kale Chips!

BOO YAH!  I'll be back later today with another post or two!

Participating Post: Meatless Monday Bento


  1. So nice to see you get into the portion kick with your bentos. My daughter loves them! If I worked out of the home full-time I'd be using them too. :)

    1. Between portions and leftovers it's really helping me with those two issues :)

  2. That's a pretty fun looking lunch! I love how you can your bento box holder also has a bevvy holder =)

  3. Impressive and fun lunch, much more exciting than my salad leftovers today! :-)

    1. Thanks! And today I totally forgot my lunch...sigh...
