Simple Focaccia Sandwich - 255 calorie Bento

This was an extremely fast & easy bento to put together. This sandwich is simple, but not boring! I found a 50% less fat and 33% less caloric Havarti Cheese! And it tastes like the original all calorie-high fat version. I love when that happens! The brand is called DOFINO LIGHT HAVARTI.

Bento Content:
  • Sandwich (Focaccia Bread, Light Havarti Cheese, Thinly sliced Apple & Horseradish Sauce) (252 calories)
  • Celery (3)

Total Bento : 255 calories
