It is time for day two of my full week of high-volume eating documentation. I would much rather have an entire cake than a small sliver. If you agree, I hope this inspires you to keep your plates full by making food choices that maximize portion size and nutrients for the amount of calories they contain. Believe me; your satisfied belly will thank you.
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!

Here is another bento idea to spark your interest. Thanks to the power of high-volume ingredients including crabmeat, mushrooms, and fat-free Icelandic yogurt, this box full of bounty is as satisfying as it is delicious!
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!
