Balanced Bento

Today I really tried to focus on the correct proportions in this bento both with color and food selections. I reduced the rice to 1/3rd. since carbohydrates are my largest calore issue. I increasd the protein to 1/3rd since I tend to limit the protein when trying to reduce calories and I end up too hungry. I remembered the green today although it took a little more effort since I have to steam broccoli at 6:30 am. Final effect, steamed rice, tamayo roll with ham slices, green pear and steamed broccolli. Healthy, fresh and filling a lunch to look forward to.

  1. Looks beautiful and delicious! Nice job :D

  2. It's a definite look forward to lunch. I still struggle with getting the right balance in my bentos with nutrition and color. I guess its just an ongoing process. Great bento.
