Do you like Japanese food? I love it, and nothing makes a better lunch than a bento box. I love eating lunch in a Japanese restaurant as you get to eat lots of different types of food, and in terms of nutrition the bento box makes a lot of sense. You usually get a portion of meat, fish or tofu with balanced portions of rice, salad, dumplings and something refreshing like chunks of orange. I have never come across a bento box I haven’t liked!
Last year I went through a phase of making my own sushi, and the next day I would make up my own bento boxes to take to work. I usually filled them with a salmon handroll, cucumber maki, edamame beans and whatever else I needed to use up that was hanging out in the fridge.
Below are some great bento boxes that I have come across – for more ideas check out London is for Living on Pinterest.
