Plumy Bento

Here's my bento for this week. Vitamin Water in dragon fruit flavor, Mio, two different kinds of plums, blueberries, five raspberries, Totoro box with two chicken drumettes that are roasted with Panko crumbs, organic wheat crackers and rice Chex, le Brie (so cute), and a V8.

I'm trying to eat only organic fruits and vegetables, and I haven't been finding any good organic baby greens lately. It's that time of year. Supermarket lettuce taste awful to me. Sometimes I can't tell the difference in taste between organic and non-organic, but with lettuce I can. I think it's the water they spray on them in the store.

It seems hypocritical (even to me) that I support organic farming, then turnaround and drink corporate vegetable juice and flavored water, not to mention the fake brie, but can I say something in my defense?

I used to juice. I probably will again too. It is time consuming and a mess and really healthy for you. You have to be committed to it - the buying fresh organic veggies, the making, the cleaning, and the immediate consumption. That's right. In order to get the maximum vitamins and goodness, you must consume the juiced veggies straight away. But it's like another thing in the morning added to the long list of things in the morning and I just can't hack it. Right now. Maybe someday. We'll see.


  1. It looks yummy, Judy...
    BTW, I've linked your blog :-D

  2. Yum, great mix of textures...your lunches always look so fun, Judy! I used to juice, too but got tired of the cleanup! Carrot and ginger and apple is a delish combo as I recall :)

  3. Yay, the Totoro box!

    I am way too lazy to juice (and nevermind the lack of space to keep a juicer!)--I can barely keep up with washing out my Mr. Bento containers, hehe.
