Contents:
Egg Florentine Morningstar bites
Broccoli
Pear
Babybel cheese
Fat free ranch for dipping

I've been sicker then a dog this past week. We went to the Sea Ranch near Sausilito this weekend and rented a super posh house, we have had it planned for like 3 months. This cold wasn't planned though! Thank god the house had a pool table, air hockey table, king sized beds with memory foam mattresses, 3 HUGE high def TVS in every room, 2 shower heads in the spa shower, deluxe jacuzzi and some other amenities which I'm sure I'm forgetting right now ;) It wasn't SO bad I had a horrible cold. We DID walk down to the beach on Saturday and run in the ocean and play in the sand. Jack even found some star fish and scared me with them. So anyways, yesterday I ate soup for lunch (no bento), but I tried to make a healthy bento today.

Contents:
Last 2 vegetable samosas
Ripe tomato slices
Cucumber slices
Turkey slices
Red organic pear
Wheat crackers and cheese wedge
Oil and vinegar

Omg, have you ever had one of those mornings where NOTHING goes right??? This "Seemingly Simple" bento box took me practically one fucking HOUR to make not to mention the time I spent washing dishes after. *SIGH*... I had to try out like 15 bentos to find one that fit everything to my liking, and after I'd try out a bento, it would be dirty so I would have to wash it. AND I TRIED 4823423 OF THEM! Then this stupid asian pasta salad had the nutritionals all wrong, so I had to pull out the food scale and weigh it ect.. (I like to know how many calories I am eating in each bento)... THEN the knives kept falling on the ground and almost cutting my toes off. It was frigging lame. Hope this at least tastes good.

Top box:
Mini wheat bagel with rest of tuna salad and lettuce
Nectarine

Bottom Box:
Asian pasta salad
Bell pepper strips
Cucumber slices
Frozen Japanese flan cup
Salt and Pepper packets
