Out of This World Bento Boxes

In an effort to eat a little more healthy at lunch time. My friend Laura and spent Sunday afternoon putting together some Bento Boxes. For those of you who don't know Bento Boxes are meals with the food placed in little compartments. Many of them have a theme like our did. This week we made out of this world Bento Boxes. The theme was perfect for the geek girl in both of us, and we had loads of fun being creative with our food, and choosing healthy items to include.

So what do you need to make these tasty and healthy lunches? Loads of vegetables, rice, coconut, fruit, lunch meat, chease cookie cutters, food scissors and knives. Then you need an idea.

Mine is based on Wall-e. I wasn't overjoyed with my space ship, but hey you have to start bento box creativity somewhere don't you?

This is the first one that Laura made. Her's turned out pretty good. Her's was a rocket flying through space. 

And here is another one that Laura made. It's a very summery one with lots of flowers.

If you want to get yourself to eat a little more healthy, and pack some lunches. Try making some bento boxes ahead of time. You'll have fun making and eating the food.
