I would like to take the opportunity to provide a visual account of my high-volume style of eating. Each day over the next week, I will be posting examples of every meal I prepare to give you an idea of how making choices to get the largest portion size for your macronutrients can result in satisfyingly full plates (and lots of them). It does take some time and effort for food preparation, but it is well worth it. I assure you, when those plates are empty, your stomach will not be. If nothing else, please enjoy the food porn!
There is no such thing as an inopportune time for bento. Whether you are a back-to-schooler, office employee, or just a work-at-homer who likes to have fun with food, the adorable, delicious, and high-volume combinations are endless!
You may be familiar with the concept of being a “big fish in a little pond” versus being a “little fish in a big pond” in certain life situations. As far as our plates go, let those of us with insatiable appetites always keep our them overflowing with deliciousness!
While it is never a good idea to make a mountain out of a molehill, making a mountain out of your sandwich filling is always worth the effort of meticulously piling it on. I think few people (and their stomachs) would disagree.
At some point in time, among the quinoa, kale, chia seeds, and goji berries, coconut became snugly nestled into the plethora of health-food crazes. And what is one of the most effectively entertaining ways to take advantage of superfood trends?…Cupcakes!
Wait no more…the next bento meal has arrived!
Few things are better than a creamy, nutty, delicious peanut butter sandwich. Except for three of them at once.
I am happy to present my first bento box meal using my brand new gear! The only issue I found when using it is that it does not allow for large portions. Having the bottomless stomach that I do, I personally have found it best to utilize the packed box as either a small snack or included as part of a larger meal. Nonetheless, I enjoy the concept, preparation process, and of course consuming the fruits of my labor. I hope you do too!
