I wrote about bento boxes before, and I think it’s still a great concept to controlling your portions. If you’ve been to a Japanese restaurant, you’ve probably heard of a bento box, which is a box shaped plate with a bunch of split sections. This allows you to put a variety of food in each section. The bento box has evolved into a way of packing lunch and has even become an art form. It’s quite impressive as to how cute lunches can be.
Here’s an example!
That picture alone really makes me want to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Check out the fruits and veggies in there too! It’s a totally balanced meal right there for a kid’s lunch.
As adults, we should definitely consider portion control in meals, because as we all know, we tend to eat way too much! If you’re wondering what kind of bento boxes there are out there, you can check out Amazon , or this site, Bento Lunch Boxes !
Do you think about portion control when packing your own lunch, or do you just throw things together in a paper bag?
