This bento is very simple, but I find the pops of color adds to its appeal. It’s very simple and consists of steamed spinach, baked spicy seitan, carrots, sliced tomatoes, and couscous, which is topped with cut carrots. It’s very basic but pretty yummy.

I’m super close to my food budget for the month, so I don’t have much money for things like produce right now. Right now, it’s just more irritation at myself and determination to stick to my budget. In this bento I have a fancy forbidden rice which had…

All of the bento posted this week are drool-worthy! I wish that vegan meals like all of these were available to buy in restaurants. Most places tend to have very boring one item meals like a sandwich or everything gets mixed together. Not terribly…

I made this bento last Tuesday using some incredibly fresh ingredients from the Tuesday Farmer’s Market. I made more of those vegetable infused mashed potatoes, topped with a slice of Tofutti vegan cheese, detailed with nori for the ears and eyes. I then…

This bento features a very simple combination of healthful foods. I made mashed potatoes with garlic and kale, used more kale as a garnish and for the vegetable I had a small tomato. For the protein I used Gardein chick’n strips. This bento was absolutely…

I don’t usually pick favorites out of the Instagram vegan bentos, namely because I am already sharing my top 5 favorite but this time my actual favorite is at the top. It’s not often I see a really awesome vegan character bento. That said, I’d still…

Another one in my incredibly simplistic character style bento. This time featuring something that doesn’t have a face! I think mountains are pretty cool. They’re home to all kinds of wildlife and quite beautiful, especially when you’re high up on one and…

I meant to post this bento earlier! A couple of weeks ago I was on Reddit’s Bento community and asked for some tips to spruce up my game. I didn’t have a ton of stuff on hand to make my bento into anything crazy amazing, but this was a step up from my…

I love how fresh and colorful everything looks this week! Now, excuse me as I go wipe off some drool. Thursday camp lunches. Strawberry fans + sweet orange pepper slices + triangle sandwiches (#chao cheese for Aji / #soynut butter and apricot preserves…

This week’s kyaraben doesn’t feature a character that is already established in anything(at least to my knowledge). To me he looks like a little fluffy puppy dog, but he could really be pretty much anything. Put your ideas in the comments below! As for…

I went to the farmer’s market near campus yesterday and picked up some peppers and a few tomatoes. The gentleman selling the sweet peppers said they were so sweet he ate one raw like an apple a short bit ago. Personally, I liked the aesthetic of the…

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!
