The Baon Movement

Making work days better one baon at a time.

Bananabag!

Too cute not to share.
I saw this in True Value. Maybe it’s to keep banana baons fresh and in tact? :) I would love to have a number of these! But it’s priced at around P450++ if I remember it correctly. So maybe just one banana at a time :)

Variety on a budget! :)

The recipe said 2 tbsp of Oyster Sauce, and I didn’t want to buy the whole bottle because I don’t need that much of it.

I also wanted a variety of salad dressings to use throughout the whole week, but if I buy 2-3 bottles of different kinds of salad dressing, that would cost so much!

Good thing there are these sachets/packets that allow me to cook and prepare different meals in small quantities. Perfect for a weekly or bi-monthly budget allocation for my baon :)

Datu Puti Oyster Sauce P5.00 each
Clara Ole Ranch Dips & Dressing P41.75
Clara Ole Ceasar Dips & Dressing P41.75

Pasta galore!

Ready for 2 weeks worth of pasta baon! I just have to make sure I eat veggies or something to break the pasta-fest during mirienda and weekends. I’m on my 2nd week and so far I’m still loving it.

I also eat it with wholemeal pasta and wheat bread. It’s wheat pasta that is very filling so I end up eating less. I forgot to take a photo of it, I’ll post it next time. And I find that it also helps my digestive system :) maybe it does contain a good amount of fiber.

For the Chunky Tomato sauce, I just added minced garlic, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, oregano poweder, sliced mushrooms in can and chicken chunks in can by Purefoods (saves me time because it’s ready to eat!)

For the Carbonara, I added the chicken chunks also and I realized later that I should’ve added mushrooms as well. I added chopped onions too. This doesn’t taste like the classic carbonara though. Something seems to be missing? But it was still pretty good.

For the Three Cheese, I added Century Tuna flakes in brine, minced garlic and chopped onions.

For the Sweet Style, I plan to add chicken hotdog and lots of cheese, and minced garlic and chopped onions.

For the Italian Style, I plan to just add the chicken chunks, chopped brocolli, minced garlic and chopped onions.

Then chopped basil leaves (except for the Carbonara and Sweet Style sauce), salt and pepper to taste for all.

It takes me longer to mince the garlic and chop the onions than to prepare the sauce itself. A pack lasts me 2 days (includes both lunch and dinner). You can cook 2 different packs then alternate them for lunch and dinner. Then just store them in a sealed container and place them in the refrigerator.

Happy pasta! :)

The powers of fried rice.

They are easy and quick to make, they are tasty, they can be stored in the ref so you can still have baon the next day, and the ingredients are inexpensive!

Good thing I remembered the good ol’ fried rice. I made 3 sets for 6 days (1 set lasted me 2 days). I still used red rice, ofcourse.

I also made sure to have adobong kangkong with me for mirienda so I take in a good amount of fiber as well.

1) red rice + corned beef + eggs + tomatoes + garlic + onions + soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste

2) red rice + angus beef sausages (chopped) + scrambled eggs + garlic + shallots + soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste

3) red rice + chicken tocino + garlic + shallots + soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste

Adobong kangkong: apple cider vinegar + soy sauce + kangkong + water + garlic + salt and pepper to taste

My baon is smiling! Maybe coz it’s on the healthy side but still yummy!

Egg + eggplant + cauliflower (pan fried in olive or canola oil, leeks and spring onions, sprinkled with some salt and pepper and a little bit of garlic and onion powder to taste + tomatoes + 1/2 lemon juice (sprinkled on top) + parmesan + a little bit of chickpeas.

Sometimes I eat a slice of wheat bread with it too :)

Clara Ole’s easy to prepare mixes are very baon friendly! This is the first one I’ve tried and it is good! Lived up to the cheese in its name :)

Just follow the cooking instructions at the back of the pack, store it in a sealed container and refrigerate it to last you a couple of lunch and mirienda baon days.

I’ve used it with
- chicken (just to make a simple chicken + red rice lunch baon more interesting. You can add pineapple bits too!)
- simple pesto fusilli pasta
- wheat bread + canned tuna + feta
- tomatoes + olive oil + feta + Skyflakes fit
- wheat bread + turkey breast cold cuts + feta cheese + lettuce

This pesto sauce already took care of 5 meals for me! Spread out throughout the whole work week :) sometimes I cook 2 servings of pasta, keep half and just reheat for the next baon day. This saves me lots of time! :)

Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto is at around 120-130+ per pack at Rustan’s Marketplace

Inspired by one of the meals in Buzzfeed’s 2week detox plan.

Cook: shallots and leeks, sprinkle salt, pepper and a little bit of oregano powder.

Mix in a bowl: tomatoes + spring onions + feta cheese + shallots & leeks (after cooking)

Squeeze 1/2 lemon onto the mixture.

Fry an egg (or 2) then lay it on top of the mixture.

Done! :) yummy, tasty sunny side up! I usually eat it with wheat bread or lentils (posted earlier) for dinner or baon for lunch :)

Enjoy!

All ingredients are easy to find since they’re all available at Rustan’s Marketplace :)
