Berry Salad

At work we have the most beautiful berries. I had to buy some and this is a little berry salad that I had for breakfast. It was very delicious! I wish berries were always in season.

Bento 46

I made this snack bento for work. It has fresh strawberries a Babybel gouga cheese and a cutie tangerine.

Strawberries

I love this time of year because it’s easy to find beautiful strawberries. Check out these that I got from Natural Grocers a couple days ago.

Don’t they look fake they’re so perfect?!?!

Bento 38 – Forest of Fruit

I had some extra time to make my bento last night, so I tried to make something pretty but still filling for lunch today. I had some leftover vegan al gratin potatoes, so that was an easy one to add in there. I added a fresh basil leaf to the top for extra flavor. I also had some steamed broccoli that I arranged in my bento. I tried to make it look like a forest. I know, that’s not too hard to do with broccoli!
After that I sliced up a banana and apple and arranged them in the larger part of the bento. All I had was a little space to fill, and it donned on me, I had a half an avocado in the fridge that needed to be eaten, so I put some salt and pepper on it and placed it in there. Overall I think this bento was a success, now I just have to eat it and make sure!

Bento 33 – Zen Garden

I am really happy with how this bento turned out. I think it’s reminiscent of a zen garden. I used fresh green beans and red potatoes for the main part of this bento – it is the part that reminds me most of a zen garden. The green beans are like the sand and the potatoes like the large boulders. Then there’s some tomato and vermicelli noodles with a fresh basil leaf. For dessert I placed some peach slices on top of a pile of pineapple.

Bento #25- Sneaky Tomato

Last night when I was making this bento, I thought some of the little homegrown tomatoes we had looked kind of like faces. So I made one into a cute little face.
This bento also has some leftovers from dinner, the au gratin potatoes, brussel sprouts, and avocado. I found out that brussel sprouts are really good with avocado. Try it out sometime! I also added a little hot sauce to the avocado to add some extra flavor for dipping the vegetables in.
I also added some green apple, strawberries, mixed nuts/dried fruit, and baby carrots and tomatoes.
