Happy Bento! Lunches On The Go! Book Review

Hello all. Today I have a special treat. I received a copy of Happy Bento, Lunches On The Go a couple of weeks ago. Today you get to take a look at a couple of my lunches inspired by the book. I absolutely love bento, I also absolutely love cookbooks. So when I was offered a chance to review a copy of Happy Bento, I jumped at the opportunity. This little book, by Anna Adden, is to die for awesome. The lunches are so easy to make and you will have no problem finding inspiration for lunchtime. So without further ado, I give you lunch, inspired by Happy Bento!

This lunch was so quick and very simple. I knew I had to make it for the oldest because she loves an apple sandwich. It could also be eaten as a large snack or for breakfast. This little lunch is very versatile. You can see Anna"s version is done with a little rocket ship cutter, I didn't have that particular cutter so I used a star instead.

In this lunch the oldest has a apple sandwich with cookie butter, grapes, orange pieces and a few yogurt covered pretzels.

This lunch is called "Bee-Inspired"  I loved the bee theme and decided to do my own lunch and use Anna's lunch for inspiration. I am always inspired by my fellow bento bloggers. They have wonderful lunch creations.                                                                                                      
This lunch was pretty simple to create. Plus I had a great book for inspiration. In this lunch my youngest has bee and tulip cookie butter sandwiches, broccoli, sweet peppers, oranges and grapes.
I absolutely love Anna's book. I can see myself using it for inspiration anytime I am lacking creativity. The great thing about bento is you can swap out any of the ingredients to suit your kids likes, Or just to be inspired. I highly recommend Happy Bento! Whether you are new to lunch packing or just need a bit of inspiration this book is perfect for you. Also don't forget to check out Anna's blog Becoming a Bentoholic for more lunchtime fun!
