Stuffed Pepper and Mushroom Bento by Demi-Plum Stuffed Pepper and Mushroom Bento by Demi-Plum
My parents left me for Vegas again this Easter (they go referee at the Qualifier for the Nationals - Karate) so while they're gone I had my boyfriend over and made him dinner. I made the amazing Cooking with Dog's Stuffed Peppers and Mushrooms. Now this is really quite different for me because I do not like peppers, but I'm on I guess a "diet" (I basically log my calories on an app in my phone and work out. I eat whatever I want as long as I stay in the calorie budget - no muss no fuss) and decided that I should also eat healthier. My mother found these Mini Sweet Peppers at the store and I decided to give it my all and I've eaten almost the whole bag in a week! These peppers still have that pepper "smell" that they have, but they are actually very mild and slightly sweet. So it's not my favorite food in the whole world, but I really am starting to enjoy these sweet peppers. I dun know if I can move up quite yet to the big boys, so for now I'll just stick with these yummy little guys. Anyway enough blabbing, this bento contains:

142 Rice with Wasabi Sesame Seeds and a Cilantro Leaf
258 Stuffed Peppers and Mushrooms
5 Steamed Broccoli
4 Strawberry

Total Calorie Intake: 409

*Fact of the Day: Did you know you can tell a peppers gender? Just flip them over to find out! Peppers with three "lobes" are male and peppers with 4 lobes are female. The male peppers are better for cooking and the females are sweeter and better to eat raw!

Oh man! You should look it up, then! My mom and I had it at a restaurant in California, on the Santa Monica Pier, covering tuna sashimi. It was sooooo good. I think it sells pretty cheap on Amazon too, probably the best place to find it.

Ok I hate mushrooms but I love everything else, especially the fact of the day thingy :) I had no idea. Also, are the broccoli and strawberry really that low in calories?

Yes they are! I use an app called "Lose It" and it has a lot of food already in there and what it doesn't you scan a bar code and it loads the information for you.

You prepare your food according to the calories! :o
BTW, where do you find the "wasabi sesame seeds"? Do you do it yourself? Because if it exists I don't think I would find it in the forgotten place I live in!

I'm dieting so yes I am preparing everything I eat based upon calories.

I found them at Jungle Jims. You can also find them online

OK, I hope I didin't shock you, I was just surprised that someone who loves food so much would be on a diet.
Excuse-me. :confused:

>W< just because I love food doesn't mean I don't like being healthy! The reason I'm on the diet is because I love food so much ^0^ If I didn't I wouldn't be on a diet hehe~

The recipe is SOOO good. I made the mushrooms before (wouldn't eat peppers unless they were already premixed in with whatever I was eating - and then sometimes I would pick them out) and it was delicious, and I thought this time it had to be even better and man was I right! The peppers are a bit small, but full of flavor and perfect for a bento! I only had beef on hand so it was all a beef mixture, but still yummy!
