I'm loving my new Bento Box.
Seriously every Mom should get one of these for their kids. Did you know a typical American school kid generates 67 pounds of discarded school lunch packaging waste per school year???
Think of all those trees :(
OK off soapbox
Here are my latest Weight Loss Surgery Friendly Bento Creations...
I shared this yummy lunch with my friend/boss Gail. Gail's a really good cook and she flipped over my Turkey Slaw so that made me happy.
