Tier to the left contains chicken Parmesan couscous salad.
Next are my vegetables. Grape tomatoes, cucumber slices, carrot sticks, and yellow bell pepper. Underneath the vegetables is one flat bread cracker.
Happy face is the hummus I made over the weekend. Carrots for eyes, tomato for nose, and yellow bell pepper slice for mouth.
Below the mouth is the ricotta cheese spread again. 1/2 a granny smith apple rounds out the healthy portion of lunch.
Lime gelatin, a yogurt Ritter Sport chocolate bar, and stick of gum end my lunch Bento.
The grape Bento is my snack Bento. Dried Apricots, one butterscotch candy, a strawberry cereal bar cut in half, vegetable chips, and two sticks of gum. Also, a mozzarella cheese stick is cut into. Again, I was going for a fish.
Hey, at least I made a happy face!
The top blue container has ricotta honey nut spread.
the bottom blue container has Cajun trail mix. To the right is a cucumber slice and a hulled out end of cucumber containing tomato neufachatel.
The sandwich is wheat berry bread, thin sliced roast beef, romaine lettuce, and hummus. A grape tomato through a toothpick holds it together.
The right side upper most corner has dried apricots and ginger snaps. The cheese spread turned out to be better with the ginger snaps than the apples!
The bottom right side container has green olives and grape tomatoes.
I couldn't eat all of this Bento, if with two long swims.
My first really cute Bento!
This is in a lock and lock box. I made cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese on wheatberry bread. I used the heart shaped cutter.
On the bottom tier I placed grape tomatoes in a silicone cup divider and stuffed some strawberry Poxy in the side. Half a plum went on top. Also some vegetable chips with a vienna sausage. I tried to make a tulip, but ended up cutting it in half. Oh well. Practice makes perfect.
This was perfect eating at the pool. Light and refreshing.
This Bento was from Sunday. The others were last week.

The blue container to the side is again my snack Bento.
It contains grapes, ginger snaps, and a couple of sticks of gum.
The orange container is my lunch Bento.
Again I have vegetables on the left and ranch dressing in the upper right corner. The lower right corner has another spinach stuffing ball.
The main compartment contains a peanut butter and blackberry jam sandwich. The bread is wheat, the PB reduced fat, and the jam simply fruit.
The left cupcake divider had dried vegetable chips. The bottom one has Cajun trail mix.
