It's fun putting it together in the morning, fun to eat, fun to reassemble emptied afterward. And, I too agree that it seems to encourage healthier eating. Less pre-made or processed stuff that just gets thrown into a paper bag. Less fastfood restaurants/cafeterias. More thought goes into its assembly = better food choices.

Don't worry at the start, Merlot, about fretting over what to put into it. The menus come easier as you build a repertoire of what works and what doesn't. As for the Japanese bento lunches I've posted, it's mostly simply because my marinara spaghetti lunches don't photograph as well.

Yay! Have fun, Merlot.
The RS lunchbox comes from amazon and is just 3 easy payments of...

My plan was actually grilled chicken, whole wheat pasta and marinara (how did you know!) I also bought some baby bella cheese. The fruit looked awful but I have some frozen peaches... I think I can work on it.

Many of my best lunches have come from the inspiration at this blog: Just Bento | a healthy meal in a box: great bento recipes, tips, and more

She covers everything, right now her hubby is making Bentos, as she is recovering from cancer treatment. And I love the cookbook...it's available at Amazon...<duck>

I buy a lot of stuff via Amazon. I've so far resisted signing up for the one-click purchasing. The standard method works fine for me with PayPal.

It actually comes in really handy for me regarding my kindle. I'm sure a few extra steps wouldn't hurt me but I do like it :)

I may have to subscribe...
Boxes made by "The Guy," otherwise known as Max.
As for signing up to Amazon's patented one-click, knowing me, I would click-click-click-click, dang-it-what's-wrong-with-this-stupid-computer?

The Kindle is how I got onto the one-click...it does save time when I am on a spending spree.
