I just want to share recent work that I did for Bentgo, a bento box option for those who want healthier meals on the go. Unlike other bento boxes, the Bentgo Salad box (seen below) gives you the option to pack salads and dressing. It’s a great option to have especially during the warmer months when we crave to eat something lighter and healthier. If you want to read about the salad dish I made, you can find the post here.
Have a great weekend!
Just want to a quick promo…there’s a write-up of this blog on Pinay.com. Here’s the link. For those who aren’t familiar, Pinay.com is a website that highlights Filipina women’s achievements around the world with the end goal of empowering the community. Pinay, a slang word for a Filipina, is often used by Filipinos to refer endearingly to one another.
There’s lots of other fun articles on the site, including one that I did last summer. So please go and check out the site. And many thanks to the folks at Pinay.com especially Tish Leizens!

We recently participated in Family Circle Magazine’s “Come On, Get Happy” feature that explored how different families add fun and magical moments in their lives without spending too much money. The May issue has plenty of great ideas and suggestions on enjoyable activities and things to do for parents and children alike. Very timely with school finishing soon!
Now, here are some fun links for your weekend:
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend to those of you in the US! See you here next week where I will be celebrating the blog’s one-year anniversary. Yay! Can’t believe it, time truly flies!
I recently contributed to a Bentgo recipe cookbook where different bloggers prepared their own meal ideas using bento boxes. Using these boxes brought me back to my childhood in the Philippines when my lunch was often packed in these nifty containers. Back then, my lunch containers were girly with floral designs and mostly in pastel colors. Love that the color and design of today’s Bentgo boxes are so sleek and fun.
The thing I love about these boxes is that they are made up of little compartments, which often encourages me to think of a well-balanced meal. A little protein, carb, some fruits and veggies, and maybe even a sweet treat. What do you use to pack your lunch and your kids’?
P.S. Thanks to my cousin Gail for introducing the Bentgo boxes to me.
