Introduction

Hello!

Hi! My name is Ashley (You can call me Atomic or Darling or AtomicDarling or any further variation of :p). I just recently began making bento meals for myself and my husband in an effort for both of us to eat healthier and possibly lose weight.

I'm not so great at these introduction things so I'm going to leave it at this for now. I just wanted to say "Hello!" ^_^

Hello from the NE USA! ^^

Hello!

I'm Miso.Desi, and I'm new here. ^^

I've always really loved Japanese food, for some reason I've always felt most at home around Japanese food and culture, so I've spent a great deal of my life eating Japanese food and such. ^^ Though I'm not any large portion Japanese, I'm such a mutt ancestrally I'm not even really sure how to identify myself, so I go with "Mutt" hehe. My fiance is from India, and I'm slowly turning Indian as I learn the language and the culture to try to fit in with the family in India. Hence my name! Miso.Desi hehe. ^^ continue reading...

Another student

Why hello there! ^_^ I'm Leelee also known as laplinp around the interwebs in other places and I am 20 years old and a student at De Montfort University studying Media Production BSc (which means theres maths and electronics involved :( ). And I have only just started getting into Bento and have made loads of recipes of Maki's (in fact I am doing some more tonight to replenish my dwindling freezer stock)
My only trouble is the veg. I love veg but it goes off so quick and its not very cheap. I need to find ways of making it interesting and freezable. continue reading...

Hello from London!

Hi everyone,

Long-time reader and bento maker, first time forum resident! I live in London, UK (in West Kensington... hence the name) and have been making packed lunches in various forms for years... from the margarine sandwiches (mmm, delicious!) which accompanied my penniless gap year days to the bento boxes I pack for work now. continue reading...

Student saying Hello

Hello everybody

I am a student from Switzerland who is just crazy about Japan and everything related to it. So obviously bento is a must ^_^ and they serve me well every day at university because not only do I save a lot of bucks by preparing my own food, I get to eat my favourite food every day. Moreover because I am lactose intolerant it usually is quite difficult to find something suitable to eat for me at the canteen because most of the dishes usually are made with the help of a diary product like cream sauce or something else. continue reading...

Hey hey hey from Puerto Rico!

Hello all!

My name is Richard. I'm from Puerto Rico and I'm a brand new bentoer. :D I half-finished my first bento a couple hours ago.

I've been reading all about bento in this website. I love the delicious recipes! ^___^

Here is my first attempt at bentos. Please comment. =D

I still have to find out what foods I would like to eat weekly. I guess that's what the weekly bento planner is for. :P continue reading...

Hello from Oregon

I have traveled to Japan many times and can't wait for my next trip there (although when that will be I don't know). continue reading...
