garlic pasta with bacon, canned sliced beets, broccoli florets
Sometimes I add stuff to my lunch that wasn't part of dinner. For this bento it was the broccoli, that is why it is still frozen. It thaws before lunch, then I stick the whole thing in the microwave. If I am using one of these tupperwares, I make sure all the food needs to be the same temperature. So either all hot or all cold.
salmon, broccoli, rice, tomatoes, lemon slices, blackberries
As you can see for this container, I can take out all of the cold items and just microwave the hot portion. This takes just a little bit of planning and figuring out what to put in all the little dividers.
baked drumsticks with seasoned salt, tangerine and blackberry salad, yogurt
I decided to eat the chicken cold... I really should have took the time to take it off the bone and put it on a bed of lettuce. That way I could have had a vegetable!
french bread cubes, carrots, grapes, mascarpone cheese
I forget that a lot of soft cheese upsets my stomach and this was too much. Whoops. It was tasty though. It doesn't look like the containers hold very much but they do.

This photo came out a bit blurry... too bad because I really liked how this one came out. Plenty of vegetables therefore lots of color!
