Before you start, weigh your low carb options. Think about your favorite foods, or check the fridge for leftovers. Choose a variety of flavors, sizes and colors.
Next, simplify your Bento lunchbox or mini-meal and eliminate the starches. Choose the right low carb foods for Bento. Assemble your box, using the food to make patterns or neat rows.
