Hi Lovely's !!
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!
