Does this meal presentation inspire you to eat healthily? I believe it does. This is why Chinese bento boxes are increasingly popular among Westerners, who want healthy meals both for themselves and their children.
The majority of the world’s population has been eating rice as a staple food for thousands of years. As Americans have become increasingly conscious of their weight and health, many have realized that white rice isn’t as healthy as brown rice because its higher glycemic index causes your blood sugar to rapidly increase after consumption. Even those who don’t care about their weight or cholesterol should realize that a diet high in processed carbohydrates results in increased energy followed by increased fatigue/lethargy, which can lead to a reduced work ethic and contribute to obesity.
The Western world thinks that following traditional Asian cuisine is difficult, but learning how to make Chinese tofu recipes, sushi, and dishes for bento boxes don’t require years of practice or even an apprenticeship in Asia. You can find numerous cooking videos for each dish on the Internet. After watching a few, you’ll know exactly how to prepare them!
There are hundreds of cookbooks available on Amazon which explain clearly how to make Chinese food, especially a bento box meal. If you’re interested in making your own sushi takeout at home, then check out this cookbook. Since many people assume that sushi is only raw fish wrapped around rice (like Nigiri), they never even try it because they don’t think raw fish will taste good. However, sushi can also be rice rolled in seaweed with cooked veggies or raw fish wrapped around cucumbers. These are the kinds of sushi you find at conveyor belt restaurants like Fugakyu.

The bento box is a style of meal presentation that was developed in Japan during the 17th century to make traditional Japanese food portable. Bento boxes are typically divided into five compartments: one main dish (fish, meat, egg), some form of carbohydrate (rice, bread), salad/sides/veggies (daikon and carrot or other non-starchy vegetables), soup (miso or clear broth), and dessert (fruit, mochi).
It’s easy to make your own Bento Box meal because you can put anything together in the compartments. If you like chicken nuggets and macaroni, then just put them in the same compartment! Your bento box doesn’t have to be aesthetically pleasing, so it doesn’t even need colour-coordinated compartments.
However, that’s not how Asians typically eat their meals. Instead of filling up on meat or carbs for their main dish while leaving room for only salad on the side, they fill up on rice/noodles first while leaving space for a few pieces of veggies. They don’t eat dessert every day because they know that too many sweets are bad for their health. On the other hand, children love sweets. That’s why bento box recipes for kids are on this website.
This means that many people can eat bento boxes without feeling uncomfortable because they aren’t stuffed yet! This is especially important for those who frequently feel bloated after eating carb-heavy meals.
