Bento - Low fat hummus, falafel, cherry tomatoes ♥

Snack box - Herb & garlic pita bread ♥

Also strawberry soya milk & an apple pie nakd bar ♥♥

~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~

Inspired by the beautiful Lebanese food I had whilst in Paris (but on a major budget!)

(I'm not sure what half that stuff is, but it was delicious! I was so sick during my visit, and the food was so light on my stomach and felt so nutritious. It was wonderful!)

I really want to buy a vegan/vegetarian Lebanese cookbook so I can make those cute pastry-things and some delicious salads ♥

Mmm this bento was yummy, and also the cheapest I've ever made! It was such a struggle to wait until lunch time to eat it. It could have done with more fruit & veg (but the nakd bar does contain two portions of fruit - and tastes sooo good. I seriously love these things so much). I've got the same for the rest of the week so I'm happy ♥

Bento - Mango and watermelon ♥

Snack box - Granola, cashews and brazil nuts ♥

Plus carrots and strawberry soya milk ♥

~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~

I haven't been keeping up with anyone's blogs recently : ( I'm sorry, I'm just so busy with college : ( I'm gonna try and be a little more active on here : )

It's spring, and I wanted something light and healthy (not to mention quick to throw together). There are loads of bunnies out and I wanted to celebrate that with some yummy organic carrots. It's not very fancy or interesting, but it kept me full and tasted alright ♥

I'm not very good at making sushi, but I will keep practicing. It might not be pretty but it's very tasty : ) This is the first time I've made tamagoyaki in my new tamagoyaki pan for a bento! It's delicious : ) ♥

This week I'm donating my lunch money to the Japan Tsunami Appeal, and so I am trying to put together bento out of ingredients I already have : )

Bento - Soba noodles, edamame beans, mixed greens, soya sauce and sesame oil dressing ♥

Snack box - Pomegranate seeds

& a banana ♥

~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~

Soba noodles and edamame beans are lovely, but I'm getting bored : ( I miss rice balls, I just wish I had the time : ( Maybe it's worth me investing in a rice cooker? Or at least trying out a different dressing : )

Chai soba works better than rice : ) plus so much quicker to prepare. Lovely and refreshing on a bright Spring day ♥

Bento - Jasmine rice, mixed baby leaves, edamame beans, cherry tomatoes, carrot flowers ♥

Snack box - Sliced plums, Thai mango, pomegranate seeds ♥

~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~

I'm back : ) I had a lovely time in Paris, but I got super sick while I was there : ( So this week I want to try to be extra healthy : ) Salad and rice is a bit uninspiring, but it was still tasty : ) I could have done a stir-fry, but I just wanted everything as simple and raw as possible. My lunch was finished off with an ultra cute carton of strawberry soya milk ♥

Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been on half term for nearly two weeks, and then next week I'm off to Paris ♥ So no bento : ( but hopefully lots of pics of all delicious French cakes I will be eating : )

I got a new bento box today, isn't it cute? I can't wait to get back to college, so I can start filling it with coconut rice, daifuku, strawberries~♥

Have any of you guys ever been to Paris? Do you have any recommendations of cute places to eat? ♥
