Driving to Work Bento

The Monkey waves to his Dad as he leaves for work most mornings from the front window.

You have no idea who I am, but I found your site while reading your sister's blog (she is our accountant). I love your creations. You guys seem to eat very healthy. I have to ask though, what is veggie booty? It looks interesting, but I never heard of it. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. Your kids are adorable!

Audra, Veggie Booty is great. My son would devour a bag if I let him. It is similar in texture to Cheetoh's except that it is made from a blend of Spinach, Kale, Cabbage, Carrots, and Broccoli. It is a much healthier alternative to say a potato chip. You can read more about it here:

I have seen it at a few health food stores and at Whole Foods.

Thanks for visiting the blog. I plan to add recipes and tips soon, so keep viewing! pam

This one is adorable! I love your use of cut outs. I'm just starting doing bentos, so i've been looking around for inspiration. Thanks!
