One of my favorite healthier on the go lunch or breakfast ideas is a Starbucks Protein Bistro Box. They recently updated it with even more protein by adding an extra hard boiled egg. My DIY version of Starbucks Protein Bistro Box is incredibly easy to make, and great for breakfast or lunch. Hardboiled eggs sprinkled with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper, fresh grapes, apple slices, cheese, multigrain bread and honey roasted peanut butter. What I really love about these is that you don’t need to heat them up, so they are great for school or work.
For this meal prep, I used these containers which I love because they are dishwasher safe! I used these portion cups for the peanut butter.
- 8 eggs hardboiled and peeled
- 2 cups of grapes washed
- 2 large apples washed and sliced
- 4 reduced fat Mini Babybel cheeses
- Honey-Roasted Peanut Butter portioned into 2 ounce containers
- 2 multi-grain flatbread sandwich thins cut in quarters
- fresh lemon juice optional
- kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Brush apple slices lightly with fresh lemon juice to prevent browning if desired. Alternatively, keep the slices face down and pressed together prevent browning as well.
Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper to taste.
Assemble protein bistro boxes and store refrigerated.
I initially cut the hardboiled eggs in half for the picture, but found that the yolks dried out a bit. I recommend storing the hardboiled eggs whole.
If peanut allergies are a concern, try subbing Sunflower Butter.

Great meal plan! Love this idea and everything looks delicious!
What are your suggestions for someone (namely me) who can do no dairy?
You can skip the cheese, or substitute with something you like to snack on. I would probably go with almonds because I love them:0)
Thanks for the inspiration! I made a few substitutions with what I had on hand (naan instead of the sandwich rounds, cashews in place of peanut butter, cut up block of cheese in place of the baby rounds), kept the apples and eggs. It was easy to put together 4 lunches each for me and my SO, and it was a nice, filling lunch 🙂
Just made this! Love love love the idea. I ended up cutting the eggs too and putting them in a tiny ziplock. Thanks for having such a lovely blog! <3
Love a great meal prep recipe and this is perfect for my lunch this week! Yum!
I love this! It’s like my own adult lunchable 🙂

This is the perfect way for me to stay on track for the week plus easier on my wallet than eating out everyday. Thanks!
This makes it so much easier to make a healthy choice for lunch!
Such an awesome way to prep for the week and stay healthy 😉
Great idea! My family loves this box from Starbucks, too. I never thought to make it myself before. Love this!
Great idea! I am always looking for new snack items to take with me to work! Love it!
I love this idea! I’m going to make these for snacks, and have them throughout the week, thank you so much!
Thanks for the inspiration!
Just a tip for the hardboiled eggs: do cut them in half like you like, but keep them stored together, like you do with the apple slices. It prevents drying out and the seasoning can stay in the middle, instead of on the outside of the egg.
I made this for my kid’s kindergarten lunch and he loved it! He asked for it again. Thanks!
Thank you! My kids said that the other kids at school kept talking about how awesome their lunches were! Haha. I loved how I was able to put healthy items in there too and they actually ate them!!
The perfect on the go lunch! Love these!!
