Do you have kids? You might or you might not, but I bet there are days when you are packing your own lunch for work and wondering what else to think about to pack.

We can only eat so many same old sandwiches and salads for every lunch. I have always suffered from the urge of more variety in what I eat. Sometimes I like simple foods that are just cut in different shapes. Doesn’t that add a lot of variety?

Sometimes I want to try to make something interesting, something non-trivial, like sushi, or some exotic dish – how inspirational would it be to create a post about bento box lunches for my readers!

So, I went on a search to find the best of the most popular bento box lunches I could find. Now some ideas here are incredible, and so trendy! Others may be not for everyone, but give them a shot – check them out – I bet you could learn a thing or two, or at least get inspired to create something in your own taste, with your own favorite flavors!

Before you start reading – here are a few tasks for you: 1) Be sure to scroll to the bottom – there is a great surprise ending to this post. 2) If you have made it to the end of the post, let me know in comments what your favorite lunch box idea is, if you have ever made a bento box lunch, and if you are seeking some assistance in this matter! If you do need assistance, I have written an earlier post with my own quick ideas for bento boxes, and I honestly didn’t spend a lot of time making those, and have to say that simple different styles of cutting your veggies/fruits can give you lots of options for the box ideas to start, and you can experiment from there, but check out my post with a few bento lunch boxes!

This is a neat sushi style bento box – I don\’t really know how to make sushi exactly, I probably could, but I have never actually made any myself, so I might not venture into making these… My oldest daughter would love to eat this box, I bet – she eats more than me when we go out for sushi, and the combinations in this box are all the things she loves to eat!

Pokémon GO Picnic Bento Lunch Box ポケモンGO攻�…
Here is a neat idea with Pokemon characters! My first step would be to figure out these characters, and how to make my rice and fixings look like them. I don\’t know, maybe this idea is a bit out there for me, I am just not that into Pokemon, I know I should be since the whole world is, I\’ll get there… Maybe I can ask my middle daughter to lecture me about these characters, I bet she can teach me a thing or two, and she would love these, especially if the balls were mac and cheese balls! OK, I have just persuaded myself to start thinking about making these – I know she would love these!
