B is for Bento || No more Junk Food to school or work !

                                        Hi Lovely's !!




                                                               Look what was brought in!
                                             A happy package always scores points!


I want to introduce an item that has put my on the road to healthy eating.



The name box.. Bento box.

Bento boxes are around for years, to be pricise around 1185 to 133 and belongs to the Japanese cuisine.

This box is super easy for carrying meals to work or school.
Back in the day I was jelous of the beautifuly decorated lunch boxes of my chinese class mates but now I can finally treat myself with the same.





This super handy bento box is from Casa Bento.

Casa Bento is an online store specialized in bento acessories and has a large selection of modern, slim and classic bento boxes. It really took me up to a week to select the one I really liked :)

I choose for a bento box with 2 layers so that I could take one warm meal and cold snacks with me.

This bento box has 2 seprate compartments and both have their own lid to prevent any liquids spilling out.

What's also a good feature is that you can warm your food up in the micro wave which isn't possible with all Bento's.





Bento Box: How handy is it, to be able to contain your entire lunch kit in this bag.




Aladin cuttery set:

If you are a noob in eating with chop sticks like me, you will need to go for this cutlery set from Alladin.

this slim blue box contains a fork, spoon and knife for the nessecary cutting jobs:P
I've already tried the set and it's also very easy to clean when your on the go!




  Geometric Silicone Cups:

these cups are prettty handy when you need to either divide certain things or make shapes from for example rice.

making a Bento meal requires a little time and creativity, but I believe strongly that creative bloggers souls like us will be able to come up with great meals and ways to decorate!

to get you started I've added a few my favorite recipe links from Just Bento a blog full of recipes for Bento boxes.


1. Smoked Salmon 
2. Spring Pasta
3. MeatBalls in tomato sauce
4. Potato Oyaki
5. Bento size mini Quiche


Do you bring your own lunch to work/school ?

  5. I normally carry my food in a carrier bag (not very classy at all) but I do love a nice lunchbox and the Bento boxes certainly look very good and functional. Tia xx

  6. If I only mirrored me in your example... it's so good to be heath conscious and I am not... now I suffer the consequences! I eat all the crap you can imagine and my doctor gave me bad news, in case I don't change it in one year... I am not even trying to change, how bad. But now you inspired me! Thanks for that! I loved the box, the cutlery and the idea!

    1. Denise ! I can't believe that ! You look so good !!
      I'm so happy to have inspired you and hope you will get yourself a bento and make great meals !

      Healthy eating doesn't have to be salads rights? Since I always stuff mine with mashed potatoes I think it's a step into the right direction at least in making effort not to choose junk food.

      Do keep me informed on your journey ! Even though I don't think you will have a lot of work since you look amazing :)
