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!
If you aren’t already bento-ing, it’s time to take a dip into the world of organized eating! I love to combine homemade elements with convenience foods to create a meal that is as tasty to the eyes as it is to the palate. This edition features a high-volume dip that is protein-packed, vegetarian, and gluten-free. 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!
Go bento or go home!!
“I’m really not a big fan of bento meals,”…SAID NOBODY EVER!!!

‘Tis the season for all sorts of wrapping. If neatness is not your forte, you are likely still cleaning up all of the crumpled wrapping paper left behind from your holiday gifts. If you live in a part of the world where winter is at its peak, you are probably wrapped in layers upon layers of warm clothing. You might also be wrapped up in achieving your New Year’s resolution, whatever it may be.
If you are anything like me with an insatiable Bottomless Stomach appetite, you are wrapped up in thoughts about food right now. You are thinking about how delicious your last meal was…looking forward to your next one…and figuring out what to do with that darn package of sushi nori that has been sitting in the back of your pantry since goodness knows when.
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!
Wait no more…the next bento meal has arrived!
