Bento Box Saturday: 11-10-12

*Welcome to Bento Box Saturday. Most weeks, I post photos of some of my bento lunches from that week.  I generally use a Laptop Lunches bento box for my lunches and I love it because it helps me to reduce the amount waste I create.  I also love how it makes for perfect portion sizes.  And my lunches look pretty cute too:)  To learn more about how I pack and carry my Laptop Lunches bento, check out this post.  I also use a LunchbotsTrio and Quad*

  • Salad with romaine, cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes and olive oil
  • Carrot sticks
  • Banana
  • Transylvania stockpot stew (via The Primal Blueprint Cookbook)
I did actually heat up the stew and take it to work in a thermos, but that’s the only difference.  I differed from the recipe A LOT in this stew, mostly omitted sweet things like the raisins and cinnamon, because that’s just not my thing when it comes to stew.  Super tasty though – I love paprika.
  • Hard boiled eggs with sage salt
  • Broccoli and olives
  • Banana
Not the most exciting breakfast bento ever, but I was really happy when I realized that I could pack a whole banana in the trio by cutting off the ends.
  • Kitchen sink salad – romaine, red cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, olives, olive oil
  • Strawberries
  • Macadamia nuts and chocolate
  • (Not pictured) Sausage stew
So, sometimes you just have to use up veggies in the fridge.  So you throw a bunch of them together to make a salad.  It wasn’t bad – the flavors worked alright together.  But still a little random.

I love it when all the colors and flavors balance out.  Bentos that have a little bit of each part of the rainbow are always my favorite.

    Mmm… you always pick foods I love, so looking at your BBs makes me hungry. I just realized a big advantage of the BB (which you mention) which could help me: portion-size. I eat healthy foods but, too often, eat too much. My brain doesn’t stop me after a reasonable amount and I need something like these boxes to send the message. Thanks for the idea.

    Your bbs always look so colorful and delicious!!! The variety you are getting is amazing, I wish I had that going on for me over here. And you look amazing also, so keep on posting these, they are inspiring! Btw, 6-7 weeks along.
