Have you ever heard of bento? I learned about Bento a few months ago, when browsing the internet to look for healthier lunch alternatives to pack my son for school. Let’s be real, the lunch provided at school is not that nutritious and I was looking for different ideas to keep my son interested on his lunches and make them fun.
That is when I became a fun of bento, but I have to admit I am just barely learning. That is why I was so happy when I was given the opportunity to review the book Cooking with Trader Joe's Cookbook: Easy Lunch Boxes
The book provides with very easy to prepare lunches not only for school but for work and even to take for picnics. The book written by the famous Kelly Lester with her EasyLunchbox System is perfect for busy mommies and all those that want to get creative and pack healthy and nutritious lunches. There are over 100 recipes with easy to prepare lunches and snacks that for sure will be appealing to both kids and adults. The book has in mind every one, and has recipes for the entire family, even with options that are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free.
Cooking with Trader Joe’s Cookbook: Easy Lunch Boxes is available at bookstores everywhere including Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com beginning September 15th (hardcover, $24.95, Brown Bag Publishers. Not affiliated with Trader Joe’s stores).

Cute! My MIL got one of the earlier Trader Joe's cookbooks and she found a couple great recipes out of it. This one looks even more fun.

Great book. I always see bento boxes and wonder how in the world these women can make something so cute, nutritious and just plain adorable. I can see this book would make what looks really hard much easier
