They say blondes have more fun, and I’m always up for a good time. Since, however, I have never been brave enough to stray from the dark chocolatey brown-hued tresses I have always been used to, why not do so vicariously through…dessert?!
With the holidays right around the corner, this party in Bento-ville is inspired by one of my favorite entertaining appetizers: the classic shrimp cocktail. These small but mighty protein powerhouses aren’t the only ones invited, however. Also on the guest list are glucomannan noodles (which I absolutely love for their numerous health benefits) along with a simple and easy homemade cocktail sauce. After inviting a few extra accompaniments, the result is another wholesome, fun, and delicious meal that is well worth celebrating!

Not only are these types of foods particularly nutrient rich, but also “calorie poor,” meaning you can eat them in high-volume…and that is always good news for those of us with Bottomless Stomachs who enjoy large portions!! Continue reading
Breakfast foods do not need to be reserved for any particular time of day. Personally, I have always had a fondness of breakfast for dinner. Luckily, the fun and creativity of bento requires no confinement to any specific meal either!
Oodles of noodles…and a bunch of other stuff!!
Go bento or go home!!
With copious amounts of rich cocoa powder AND an abundance of dark chocolate chips, this loaf cake just might stop you in your tracks.
“I’m really not a big fan of bento meals,”…SAID NOBODY EVER!!!
