Putting Together a Nutritious Bento Box

How to put together a Bento Box

The Bento Box

Bento is a single-portion take-out or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice or noodles, fish or meat, with pickled and cooked vegetables, in a box. Containers range from disposable mass-produced to hand-crafted lacquerware.

Bentos are readily available in many places throughout Japan, including convenience stores, bento shops, railway stations, and department stores. However, Japanese homemakers often spend time and energy on a carefully prepared lunch box for their spouse, child, or themselves. More in detail in Wikipedia  – Text under CC-BY-SA license

My theory for putting in a good bento box and to be nutritional it is. I like to make a ratio of two type of vegetable, which can be pickle vegetable, steamed, stir-fry, and always combine them with some fruits as the last bite of the bento box.
