Starbucks might not be the place where you think of getting a healthy lunch, but their catchy bistro boxes proves us wrong. They’re the perfect on-the-go snack when you’re running late or didn’t have time to pack your own lunch. But why not take some inspiration from Starbucks bistro boxes and make some of your own?

The first thing you’ll need is the perfect container for your new bistro box lunch. And this bento box by MACDIAZ is cute, compact and stackable. It even comes with its own cutlery set. The best way to describe this bento box is: cute.

Now that you’ve got your box, it’s time to fill it. To start, here are three copycat recipes for Starbucks bistro boxes.

Egg and cheese bistro box

What you’ll need:

  • Two hard-boiled eggs
  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Pita bread
  • White cheddar cheese
  • Your favorite peanut butter spread

Fruit and cheese bistro box

What you’ll need:

  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Brie cheese
  • Cheddar
  • Gouda cheese
  • Multigrain crackers

Peanut Butter and jelly bistro box

What you’ll need:

  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwich (you can easily swap out peanut butter with your favorite nut butter. And for gluten-free diets, opt for gluten-free bread)
  • Greek yogurt
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers
  • Cheese sticks

The great thing about all three bistro boxes is that you get to modify them and personalize them however you want. In fact, you can think of Starbucks bistro boxes as a template you get to play with.

If you’re not a fan of brie cheese, replace it with something you love. Grapes aren’t available? Try berries instead. Bon Appetite!
