The birth of my Boulder Bento Blog! (With lots of alliteration!)

Hi everyone! Although I don't expect many people to follow this blog, I've decided to create it anyway! It's going to center around my adventures with making bento box lunches! I've been a member of for a while now, but I've mostly just tried individual recipes instead of making actual bento. But now that I've settled into my new apartment, I think I'm actually going to try and dedicate myself to making healthy bentos for my lunch, so I can eat well and save money! Being a college student, I'm not so interested in losing weight, but rather just making sure I'm healthy and, really, eating at all.

I am also going to try to plan out my meals for the week in advance, so I can make the most of leftovers and the vegetables we buy (so they don't go bad before we eat them). I expect, though, at the end of our supplies, when I am only left with perogies in the freezer, my bento making will slow down. I'm a vegetarian, though not a very good one. I often eat meat when I go out, and sometimes I just feel like a real hamburger. In general, though, you won't find any meat in my fridge, and only some cans of tuna in my pantry. (I do like tuna...It's so convenient!)

Anyway, we'll see how it goes! I'm bento-ing from Boulder, CO at the moment, as you can maybe tell by the blog title. I hope to be able to upload pictures of the bentos for this blog, but I don't own a camera. My roommate does, though, so maybe she'll let me borrow hers. Unfortunately, she wasn't around when I made my first bento, so I'll just have to describe it to you!



  1. Hi, I really enjoy reading your description of food and I'm looking forward to seeing those pictures. I have a food blog of my own maybe you'd like to take a look, it doesn't come in bento boxes because I haven't been able to get ahold of them but they're still lunches to eat at work/school.
    I'm looking forward to new posts from you ^^

    Thank you,

  2. Thanks for your comment and thanks for following my blog! I don't have a bento box yet, either, so mine are just in tupperware. I'll definitely check out your blog! I'll also get my pictures uploaded soon, I have a couple.
