Today I began my adventures in bento. This sentence is a little bit of a dramatic start for a series of blog posts about lunch, but I’ve always been attracted to bento boxes for their cute appearance and healthy portions (feel free to follow my Pinterest bento board!).

I’ve wanted to dabble in this for years, but I finally broke down and purchased a beautiful OJYU bento box from Bento&co, along with some other cute accessories.bento supplies

Bento #1


bento #1


  • Cauliflower Buffalo Bites – recipe from Good Dinner Mom
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Cheesy Quinoa Bites – recipe from So Very Blessed (I replaced the flour with rice flour and the carrots with spinach)
  • Leftover Chicken Quinoa Stir Fry – own recipe (basically stir fried chicken, quinoa, carrots, and frozen stir fry veggie mix, topped with sakura-punched old cheddar cheese and spinach leaves)
