Things to include in a bento box, well of course all your favorite things!
In this weeks Bentos, I have included:
-1 piece of Strawberry (the ones I bought were huge, so I cut them into 4 before adding a piece to each bento)
-1 small Mandarin, they are called Cuties :)
-4 slices of Mushrooms
-2 sticks of Zucchini
-3 slices of Cucumber
-4 snap Peas
-2 Celery sticks
-2 pieces Broccoli
- 1 piece Cauliflower
-1 hard boiled egg (not pictured)
-3 tbsp home made Hummus (see below)
You can really add just about anything to the bento boxes, if you are going to add dry things like bagel chips, or tortilla chips etc you want them to be sealed and away from the other ingredients, so either in a small container, or a small baggie.
This weeks combination of bento is approx. 260 calories, give or take depending on sizes of things.
I used the Hummus Recipe from Inspiredtaste.net, including the home made Tahini, that you need for the hummus.
You can follow my Pinterest Bento Box Board if you like for inspiration for making your own Bento boxes.
