Simple chicken bento

Image

This was yesterday’s work bento. I actually really like this one, despite how simple it is….the brightness of the tomatoes seems to spread across the entire bento and makes up for the lack of colour elsewhere, but I think the main reason I love this one so much is because it contains my very first checkered apple! I finally decided to give it a go, and I think for the first time it came out alright actually. What do you think? Next time, I think I’ll try and make the squares smaller though. Here’s a closeup.

So this oh so simple bento contains my paprika seasoned oven baked chicken on a bed of watercress and baby spinach, boiled broccoli and sauteed piccolo tomatoes, and raw carrot pieces to fill up the gaps.  I forgot to pack the balsamic vinegar, woops. The little disposable tupperware ( I have yet to invest in a snack box) has my checkered apple, grapes, picota cherries and 3/4 of a clementine. I also packed a small wholewheat roll to go with this lunch. It was incredibly filling, and for the first time in forever I wasn’t ravenous and practically lunging for the fridge when I arrived home from work.

I missed my Bento&Co order today :(, since I live so so far away from the post office and I don’t fancy walking for a couple of hours to pick it up, I’m having it redelivered on tuesday, when I know I’ll be here…having to wait two more days for it is torture though. I want my goodies now!! I think everybody is impatient when it comes to recieving a package they were really looking forward to!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend guys. 🙂
