Favourite Bento Video

This was the first Bento video/tutorial that I came across and I was in love with the whole concept ever since. Honestly it's been around 2 years since I started my Bento-ing venture. I had an old blog with the 100 bento challenge and I *think* I made it up to 30 before getting quite ill. So that is a fantastic achievement in my book!
Anyway, back to topic. This is a very simply put full bento prep with ingredients and instruction on how to pack and time. I have not made this exact bento but have taken inspiration and advice from it.

So without further ado, here it is!

**Trick to make bento in the busy morning is preparing the ingredients the night before or using premade ingredients from the market.

** Recently, bento regained its popularity in Japan for its safe and balanced diet and many Japanese bring their own bento to school and work.
