Umeboshi #Bento #梅干 #弁当:

Today’s lunch features an 梅干 or “pickled plum” in rice. I was pretty excited to find a jar of these beauties at the local Japanese grocery store, so I’m excited to learn what it tastes like! Also in this bento are a couple of meatless meatballs, green…

My #vegan #bento lunch for today!

This bento turned out BEAUTIFUL in real life but I just could not get the lighting to work the way I wanted it to. Anyway, today’s bento features the rest of my cucumber, some veggies and fried tofu leftover from the other night, mashed potatoes and a…

George Washington Carver #bento

So I ended up not going to a resturaunt last night, meaning I found some more time to make a bento! Bento Blog Network’s challenge bento of the week is historical figures. I’m kinda worried because an actual winner hasn’t been posted up for last week’s…

#Monbento Box Review #bento

Since I am eating yet another salad today, I figured I’d spare you the boring details of another identical lunch and write a review about my favorite bento boxes! As you may have noticed the bento boxes I use most frequently are Monbento boxes. I love how…

For Once In My Life I Eat a #Salad. #vegan #bento #foodie

It’s no secret that I hate salad. And I mean HATE them. I’ve eaten one too many haphazardly made, wilted gross salad from restaurants that couldn’t give more than an ounce of crap about customers that don’t want to eat their unhealthy garbage or douse…

Childhood in a Meal #bento #vegan #foodie #lunch

The bento I made last night is a combination of some of my favorite foods as a kid, albeit veganized. Some of my favorites of my childhood were sweet corn, fresh tomatoes, deep fried steak, fried chicken, fried okra, and mashed potatoes with gravy. Know…

+Terry Poulin I don't usually fry my Gardein goodies unless I'm frying the Gardein Chick'n strips, but even then that's rare. I was making a vegan version of things I used to enjoy as a kid. As a kid I ate the meat versions the most.

And the okra was only a couple bucks at the local Food Lion, in a big bag- frozen aisle! Walmart carries them too. If you bake it, it's actually a lot healthier. Enjoy that all you like! 
And OMG, when I input it into Noom each bento tier was over 700 calories. Whoo boy, more than usual(300-500 range). But boy, was it worth it, it was so yummy! :D And I'm happy to report, no chest pains(although I'd probably have to eat a plateful before that would happen, I did NOT understand moderation as a teenager, LOL)

Vegan #Onigirazu #bento #ビーガン #おにぎらず #弁当

Thank’s to Dosirakbento’s post, I decided to try to make onigirazu, which is basically an unshaped onigiri. Anyway, I didn’t bother with the shape, I just eyeballed making it into a square and then put everything else on it. Granted, my pictures aren’t as…

 Today’s lunch bento almost didn’t go up!  Last night a fried and I went to a new restaurant because our usual favorite closed at 9pm.  We ordered so much food, it was ridiculous. But of course, whenever I find a restaurant with a lot of vegan options I…

 Heresy, I say! This is the same exact lunch as yesterday, and tomorrow’s will likely be a match up too. This one is pretty good, and I want to use up the lettuce before I go to my boyfriend’s tomorrow. I’ve gotta enjoy these greens while they’re fresh!

Fresh #Bento

Okay, so maybe this whole bento isn’t fresh. I’m trying to use up the rest of this bag of Daiya Vegan Mozzarella(It’s delicious) and canned corn, but everything else was fresh prepared! The Gardein chick’n was cooked up before I put the hot sauce and…

The food is AMAZING. And theycan make anything on the Vegetarian menu vegan! That said the Service sucks. The staff isn't very attentive, even with maybe 3 tables having people at them. A shame since the food is so good, and this was each of the 2 times I went. I think next time I'll order to go.

All the breads are vegan, and the sandwich I always eat there- portobello and hummus! It's to die for and vegan! Their soy chai lattes rock too!
