Back to Bentos 1

I love looking at other people's bentos online. So many beautiful colors, textures, and shapes masterfully arranged. Unfortunately, I tend to get discouraged with my own creations, but like everything in life, I need to practice in order to improve. So here goes it ...

For breakfast today, I had:
  • A homemade Rice-Quinoa-Pumpkin Muffin w/ earth balance spread.
  • Turkey Bacon
  • Strawberries & Blackberries
  • I was supposed to have rice milk to drink, but I forgot! D'oh!

For Lunch:
  • Brown Rice
  • Carrots & Hummus
  • Refried Black Beans
  • Plum, Avocado & Okra
If you'd looked in on my lunch today, you would have seen me eating the refried beans w/ chopsticks. Somehow it seemed wrong. Fun, but wrong.

Senorcito's Food for School:
  • Breakfast was 2 mini Rice-Quinoa-Blueberry Muffins and a Nectarine.
  • Lunch was Brown Rice, Turkey, Avocado, Okra and Carrot Stars.
  • Snack was a portion of Golden Apple and Blueberries plus his Quinoa O's.
Dinner made it's way to tomorrow's bentos (already packed!). I've found a new bento sharing blog called What's For Lunch Wednesday :)

Thank you for all the kind comments! It can be tough creating full varied meals with all my son's food allergies, but I'm trying :)

Shannon, I've been meaning to post the muffin recipe, but hadn't made the time yet. I'll try to post it here over the weekend.
