Bento is a Japaneese lunchbox. It originated from a tale where a small lunchbox fed a family for a long time. (aka 1 loaf feeding many). The Japaneese farmer's wife lovingly packed a bento box for her husband to take with him in the fields. Today, bento boxes are made by doting mothers and between lovers as an expression of love. As they are small, portioned control meals, many lose weight if they eat "Bento" style. If you see a "Lunchable" - that's a Bento Box (but an unhealthy one).
Now, I'm into Bento. I thought I'd share some with you.
