And this is my Husband’s bento today. Do you remember this magical keyword, “magowayasashii(grandchildren are kind)” ? If not please check Japanese definition of healthy food. Since they were little, Japanese people have been educated to have 7 factors (beans/ sesame/ seaweed/ vegetables/ fish/ mushroom/ potato) in your meal. This bento perfectly covers all the factors.
Making bento should be enjoyable. You do not have to strictly stick on this rule. But when you think about “healthy diet”, the magical keyword will be very useful.
Please stop avoiding bread or pasta. Of course you can have spaghetti for lunch! Just also have some from these factors too! I think here is a way you can enjoy foods & be healthy. I hope you will enjoy your lovely lunch! xx
