Fritatta Snack bento

Sorry about the little hiatus! I took a bento break but I am back on the scene now. Usually I work mornings, but when I work the afternoon shift, I like to take a bento with me, either a full meal or a snack one. Here we have a snack bento with chicken and orzo fritatta, veggies and humus, pineapple chunks, and an agar-agar jelly.

It’s nothing fancy, and it ended up not being a enough. I have problems with low blood sugar, and by 4 PM, my blood sugar floored. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced a drop in blood sugar, but it feels a lot like coming down with the flu, at least for me. I get really weak and shaky, I get hot flashes, my head starts hurting, and I get nauseous. Not fun! Usually when it gets that bad, my sugar stays “off” for a few days and I can get pretty sick. Unfortunately, I had to be at work for another two and a half hours, so I definitely wasn’t feeling well by time I got home. But my husband wasn’t feeling good, either, so i ended up taking care of him! LOL; it’s ok, we’re both better now.

I have not forgotten about my bento blog shoutout! I’m still hoping for a few more hopefuls. Let me know if you have a blog and you’re interested!

Also, today is my 23rd birthday! Happy birthday to me! 🙂

    Happy Birthday! I was just thinking today it was odd that I don’t know anyone whose birthday is Feb. 11… now I do!

    I have low blood sugar issues, too… not fun! although not quite as extreme as yours.

      Ah, yes! I’m still around! Sorry, things have been a little busy lately and I haven’t been on the bento scene much. I will hopefully be making a comeback soon!

    Happy belated birthday Katy!! Cute bento but I so hear you about low blood sugar–I need hearty bento lunches with plenty of protein to keep me feeling grounded and well 😀
