"A bento lunch is a compact, balanced, visually appealing meal packed in a box. Historically, it’s a Japanese box lunch, similar in concept to the Indian tiffin, the Korean dosirak, or the Filipino baon lunch. In Japanese, 'bento' or 'obento' refers to the packed meal, and 'bento-bako' refers to the bento box itself."
Lunch In a Box not only provides recipes and menu suggestions, nutrition guides and the occasional philosophical assertion, it also has an extremely handy Bento Store Locator function and a bento box size guide that breaks down how many calories one might expect when packing to help prevent packing on pounds. All in all, Lunch In a Box is a tremendous resource for the bento beginner to the bodhisattva, not afraid to think inside the box.
