Bento (No. 87)

Super cheap bento time!!

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?

Bento No.28

Very varied and colourful Bento today. This one is for the bf in a Sistema Lunch Cube.

In the snack section, he has malt loaf (in silver foil), nutty cereal bites, hot chocolate cupcake (no icing), grapes and a small pot of mixed nuts and raisins.


In the main half of the Lunch Cube, there is a silicon cupcake case of miso quinoa (so yummy-just cook the quinoa in miso soup), a cupcake case full of leftover firecracker rice, cheese cubes (with a pirate sword pick), ham rolls, and sliced cucumber.

I like that this lunch isn’t just one thing, it’s made up of so many different yummy, and healthy things. A varied lunch, for anyone, any age, makes for a tastier, more enjoyable lunch, as the colours and different tastes ensure that the recipient is never bored and eats it all up 🙂

Looking at that lunch is making me hungry again!

Do you sometimes look in the fridge and end up having so many different parts to your lunch/dinner?
