I prefer to eat from my own lunch box(bento in Japanese) because I’m bored of dining out. Also, I want to eat vegetables and save the money.
I wake up everyday at 5 in the morning and I go to work at 6 am.
Because I don’t have much time in the morning, I try to prepare my lunch box in 10 minutes
The contents of the picture are as bellow.
Rice : I often eat rice most of the time. Three times everyday.I seldom pack other staple food. I like bread but rice is easier to pack.
Fried chicken : I’m sorry to say that this is a frozen food which I didn’t really use.
Broccoli and carrot : My wife boiled them with a little salt.
Slices of “takuan” : Japanese pickle made from Japanese radish
Salmon flakes : I put them on top of the rice
That’s all.It’s simple.I usually use leftovers from last night’s dinner.
I think that the lunch box costs about 200 Japanese yen.
On the other hand dining out costs from 700 to 1,000 Japanese yen and the food has a strong flavor.
The lunch box requires a little care.
But I think that the lunch box is healthy and I may get very good at cooking.
