Greening my lunch

bento.jpgI can’t tell you how many times I’ve found myself wishing that there was some sort of adult lunchbox out there that people could use – one that had sealable containers within a big box, thus eliminating the need for plastic ziploc bags and brown paper bags. After doing some research, I found the Laptop Lunchbox, which is very suitable to American-styled lunches and as a result, pretty ugly. Then it hit me – Bento Boxes! I’d seen tons of them in Japan when my family visited in the 80’s. I delved deeper into the internet and found myself saturated with endless bento box-inspired sites, blogs, etc.

Can I just say how much I love the Japanese? They thought of everything, and they make it look super cool. After surfing endless sites, I settled on a modern bento box in my favorite color, red (pictured above). It even comes with a pair of chopsticks. Now I just need to learn how to make super tasty Japanese bento box lunches. Until then, I’ll have to settle for turkey sandwiches, carrots and chips. Interested in getting your own super cool bento box? Here are some great sites to visit:
bentoyum.com, shop.aranziaronzo.com, jbox.com, and of course, ebay.
