(As if I needed another one....)
It's not my fault. It's Jen's fault. She started talking about all the great things about bento and has a bento site and I just got sucked in.
It really is wonderful.
Basically you pack little containers with as much beautiful healthy food as you can. It means Ben and I are eating better, and I'm cooking more, which means we're spending less money too. It also means that we're getting cute little bento boxes from Japan, so it's really good we're spending less...
It's an art form that I've just started experimenting with. We don't even have our bento boxes yet so I've had to improvise, but so far I love it! So much wonderful, yummy healthy food!
So, if you're looking for a creative way to eat better, I'd definately reccomend giving it a try, but be warned, it can get addictive!
