It can be a challenge to think of interesting, nutritious and delicious foods to pack for lunch and/or breakfast everyday. Thankfully, cookbook author Sara Kiyo Popowa has come to the rescue with her vibrant, fun and inspirational approach to grown-up lunch boxes. She concentrates on having five clear elements: complex carbs, protein, fruit and veg, and "sprinkles", as well as the 5 colours used in authentic Japanese cooking: red, white, black, yellow and green. With recipes like "Busy Days Instant Noodles", "Lazy Tamago Bento" and "Green Theme Bento', you'll say goodbye forever to boring bag lunches and hello to highly nutritious, vegetarian, colourful boxes of joy!
