What Did You Make For Yourself Today?

It’s a funny question to ask. But sometimes we forget to ask ourselves this simple question in the hustle & bustle of the day.

One of life’s simple pleasures - which compound throughout the day gives a really good end of the day feeling - is making something for yourself.

And filling a bento box is like packing a little care box for yourself.

Beware, bento boxes are SMALL! (As you can imagine, a big box when filled gets extremely heavy.)

SO, What can you pack in there? Not as much as I’d like…LOL!! You should have seen me.

I made my choices based

  • on what I love

  • what I have in my fridge

  • what I am hoping to achieve (portion control) &

  • how I’m feeling when I FINISH my meal.

Bento Box 1 was filled with:

  • 3 spoonfuls of smoked kimchi from @stroudsmokehouse

  • 1 king oyster mushroom

  • 1 small portion of leek/wild mushroom claypot rice

Bento Box 2 is filled with

  • 1/3 red pepper + last of the kimchi

  • 1/2 handful samphire & coriander

  • 1/2 portobello mushroom

  • 1 small portion of leek/wild mushroom claypot rice

So, if you have a bento box / lunch box, what would you make for yourself today?

It’s not always about the recipe, it’s about the inspiration to try.
