Bento #9

With the holidays right around the corner, this party in Bento-ville is inspired by one of my favorite entertaining appetizers: the classic shrimp cocktail. These small but mighty protein powerhouses aren’t the only ones invited, however. Also on the guest list are glucomannan noodles (which I absolutely love for their numerous health benefits) along with a simple and easy homemade cocktail sauce.

Once you have fallen into the hole of {better for you} donut excellence, you may seldom have the desire to be lifted out by their sugar-laden alternatives.
