Some days, you have almost no time to throw your lunch together before heading to work. The other day was one such day. My normal bento box was queued in the line of dishes to be washed, so I made do. Happily, this answers the question: How do I bento without a bento box? Simple — improvise.
This is my RUN! Bento. It was tossed together mere minutes before heading out to work. I tossed together a small salad, a pressed hummus sandwich (Tribe hummus, arugula, and a cucumber), a yogurt (strawberry shortcake), and red grapes. I put each item into similarly sized containers with interlocking lids. Not bad for a few moments.
Remember — even if you don’t have a lot of time, there’s always time to eat happily!
