#13 ~ Light Meal for Everyone

First time to take out of the house  food in a Round Red Box that I bought last Chinese New Year. In Chinese Culture, mostly they use the box for different nuts and spring candies. I thought why not use it for my baking goods, tortilla wrapped, and even for meat. I brought this to our meeting yesterday. Although the box doesn't have any lock, just placing it in a bag still it's convenient to bring.

#12 ~ Tuna Sandwich and Blanched Vegetables

Bento #12 ~ Tuna Sandwich and Blanched Veges
I baked the whole wheat bread creating into fun shaped like flowers, hearts, and even bears. I used tuna in water fresh from the can, I seldom eat canned food and if ever I have to add lots of vegetables to the meal. In here I used steamed okra wrapped in fish cake and baby corn as side dish. I also have mixed salad and seedless grapes for dessert.

#11 ~ Rice in Nori, Steamed Shrimp and Vegetables

Bento #11 ~ Purple Rice in Nori, Steamed Shrimp and Vegetables
What can I say, I love shrimp! But I cannot eat a lot, I have occasional allergy with it. Anyways, I can't believe this is the 11th Bento I made. I'm enjoying creating and snapping (cooking and capturing) a lot, sometimes when I look around my mind is working with what to prepare next...Although my Obentos are made just for me and I haven't tried making for kids with all those characters, maybe soon...

#08 ~ Peppered Beef Cold Noodles

Bento #08 ~ Peppered Beef Cold Noodles

It's peppered beef spinach cold noodles. I read so much about cold noodles and pasta salad since I would like to know the difference between noodles and pasta. Actually, I think there's not much difference. Mostly in Asia, we're just used to call noodles and in Western it simply pasta. Anyways, as usual  this is an easy way to prepare ahead of time, maybe at night and just place it in the chiller, the following day it's ready to eat.

#06 ~ Smiling Spaghetti and Brocolli

Bento #06 ~ Spaghetti and Broccoli
 My two previous posts aren't showing, I guess it will take time before Blogger could figure/return them. Anyways, when I made this bento my husband told me it looks like for Halloween :) I thought of Jack-o-lantern. I'm a bit frugal here, I used the left over pizza sauce I made, chopped some peppered beef and added fresh basil and cheese. A great meal indeed!

#05 ~ Fried Chicken and Rice

Bento #05 ~ Fried Chicken and Rice
Repost: The orginal was taken by blogger :(
I'm eating big time today! Kind of heavy food, but I think it's healthy in a way since it's a complete meal. How I enjoy using my do it yourself (DIY) rice molder and trying to fit all the food into the small lunch box. Good thing in my place where I live, I can buy small portion of everything. For instance, boiled egg, cooked rice, and even fresh fruits and vegetables.

#03 ~ Asparagus and Peppered Beef Egg Wrap

Bento  #03 ~ Asparagus and Peppered Beef Egg Wrap

There's nothing better than having good and healthy breakfast in the morning! I'm trying to give it a try, hoping I can continue waking up early to prepare rather than buying from breakfast store. This took around 10 minutes since I prepared the peppered beef the night before. You can also use ham and other vegetables, and mayonnaise for the dressing. For the dessert, I have cherry tomatoes and cheese.

#01 ~ Smiling Boiled Eggs Fresh Salad

Bunnies that turned into Pigs
Welcome to the world of Bento (Boxed Meal or Bian Dang /便當). There are two reasons why I started making Healthy Bento. First, I was  inspired by Cooking Gallery, then I thought of starting to eat healthy breakfast early morning since my class starts at 10am until 1pm. I always end up eating anything available for grab. I can prepare the food at night, place in the chiller, and ready to eat in the morning.
