Purple Bunny Stamp Bento

 
I haven't made any bentos for more than a week and thought that I wouldn't make any until the weekend, but the weather today is so good (i.e. sunny and warm), I just couldn't resist making one. The bento is pretty simple though, as I made this after work - so not so much energy left ;). I will bring this bento to work tomorrow.

The content itself is pretty healthy: stir-fried whole-wheat spaghetti, sauteed with garlic, chili, green onions and shrimps, stir-fried water spinach seasoned with soy sauce, oyster sauce and pepper, kimchi and egg.

The bunny stamp is made out of purple potato, cheese, nori and carrot.




I know I told you all that I wanted to eat more low-carb and even had started making a few low-carb bentos, but to be honest after trying to eat low-carb for the second time within two years, I have to say that this type of eating life style is really not for me and it will not work for me - I would end up getting crazy if I should go on...:)! But people do keep saying different things anyway, making you totally confused in the end. Some people are absolutely against low-carb and say that it's unhealthy and others say the opposite: carb makes you fat, it is unwholesome and we should rely more on protein and consume very little carb per day. I do get irritated whenever I read different things every few months...! Probably I should just try to adapt the Japanese eating lifestyle - which I would have no problem with since I adore Japanese foods (although I surely have to decrease the amount of delicious tempura, chicken karaage or tonkatsu that I consume...;)!!). Looking at the Japanese, I can't actually really believe that carb is something evil - rice is their staple food and they are known to be noodle lovers too. I suppose in the end everything is just about moderation - which means eating in smaller portions.





Oh well,  let me stop my rambling speech... and grrr, it's almost 20.00, I have to go to bed in a few hours...:( - at least it's still sunny... and the weekend is on its way :)!

  1. Hi~
    As a nutrician I don't recommend reducing carbs too much- this may lead to you being tired, hungry and gaining more weight after the diet :(

    If you want more info, drop me a line ^^

    Anyways, the bento is so pretty and yummy~ I love it!

  2. You bento is very colorful and enticing to eat. I also agree with Oliko. To lose weight one should have a proper and balanced diet. It should be mixed with exercise. =)

  4. I just eat a balanced diet and keep portions smaller. I also count calories and exercise. It helped me lose 100 lbs in 2 1/2 years, and I am much healthier and happier now.
    Beautiful bento by the way!

  5. You are very innovative in your bento design. The purple bunny looks like a print in a stamp.

  6. I'm starting bento making for my son starting this fall. I'm carefully observing and studying your techniques... haha. ;-) Great bento again!

  7. Hmmm, that looks like a very realistic bento that will motivate people to make their own too. :3 I'd eat that! Small portions require too much discipline...my own bentos are always pretty big, but I try to put more veg in now. >_> None of them are as varied as yours though!

  8. @ mehblog - are my bentos that unrealistic to make;)?? Well, I guess quite some of my charabens are not meant for people who don't want to spend more than 30 minutes in the kitchen to prepare their lunch. I do like making simple and easy bentos without any little cute tidbits here and there too though. I am trying to add more veggies in my bento too...:)!
