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 :)!
