Bento (No. 87)

Super cheap bento time!!
image

This bento contains food that cost a total of 68p!! Not quite the 33p I was aiming for but:

– this bento was for the bfs 10 hour shift (he said it was plenty of food for that shift too!);
– it contains a nice healthy split of carbs, fruit, veg and protein (and a treat) so it’s pretty balanced;
– it was super quick!

The bento contains firecracker rice (cost a few pence more than plain rice but was worth the yumminess), steamed brocolli, grapes, jaffa cakes, and peanut butter crackers.

I’m going to try and make a cheaper bento for myself as it’s given me lots more ideas!

Would this bento appeal to you?

New style of Bento – helping you eat healthy on a budget

Bento lunches/dinners/breakfasts/snacks are amazing in many ways, including:

1. Encouraging children (and some adults) to eat a variety of food;

2. Weight management (in adults);

3. Using up leftovers;

4. Getting your family involved with meal planning and designing.

 

And many more…

 

But, it is a very real thing that food prices are increasing dramatically. Can you still make tasty, healthy and appealing bentos on a tight budget?

 

I would like to investigate.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to try and reduce my food bill (to the extreme if possible) while still maintaining a healthy, balanced, and active lifestyle and meal plan. I plan to share tips and bentos on here, as well as get feedback from your lovely selves!
