A few more Bento!

This bento was egg substitute cooked in a really thin layer with sauteed spinach and green onion layed on it, topped with a little turkey bacon and rolled up. I sliced it into sushi like rolls and stacked in the box with a tomato and spinach salad and an apple sauce!

This bento was salami and liverwurst on whole wheat with Dijon, spinach and cucumbers. A spinach, cucumber and tomato salad on the side and around the sandwich. I also gave him a peach but it wouldn't fit in the box.

The first photo of this bento shows the bottom layer. Kiwi, tomato, carrots, cheese, spinach and a tuna stuffed sweet pepper. The second photo is a picture of the crisp stars I made him. I took a flat wrap, used a cookie cutter to make the stars and baked them on a sheet sprayed with cooking spray. They are resting on a piece of wax paper.

The first photo shows the bottom layer which was rice and lentil pilaf. The second layer is tomato sauce and a container with black berries and a peach. In the ramekin is shredded Parmesan!

That's all folks!

Go where your creativity leads you right?

So I made another bento lunch for my hunny yesterday. I hope he's enjoying it right now. :) The first photo shows about 1-1.5 cups of stir fry that I added some chicken to. Then in a silicon baking dish (to avoid juice transfer) are two rice triangles. I think they are called nigiri. To stabilize it all from rocking around and to add some raw nutrients, the side is stuffed with grape tomatoes! YUM.
This second photo shows dessert! I added some beautifully ripe strawberries to a cupcake wrapper and sent them on top. I also stuck one in by the rice, snapped the lid on and sealed it with a kiss! These are really really fun. I suggest you give it a try. Now my hubby has diabetes and we're still very new to learning how to take care of it. But this seems like a pretty easy, fun and let's just call it what it is... PRETTY way to make sure he's getting the right foods to eat. :)
