I am thinking about buying a bento-style lunch box. But first I want to experiment with packing bento-style foods in my regular lunch carriers. I tend to "snack" more than eat full meals in the summer time, and at lunch time year round, at least when left to my own devices anyway.
So next week I'm planning on packing a few veggies, fruit, cheese cubes and a few other things as lunch instead of the increasingly boring, turkey and cheese on wheat.
I do not like many traditionally asian foods (bento is a Japanese lunch box). I do like gimbop but I do not have the urge to make it. So I was wondering what non-japanese foods you use in your bentos/lunchboxes to make your lunches a little more fun and a little less sandwichy.
What do you take for lunch/pack for others? How do you keep your lunches from getting too mundane?
