Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

Leafy Green's last bento box collection was such a hit, we figured it deserved a revival. After all, you can't overemphasize the importance of healthy meals, especially given all the negative talk about obesity recently.

There are several benefits to creating your own bento boxes besides the fact that you can make them as healthy as you'd like. You can buy cute bento boxes (ebay has tons of great options for kids and adults alike) and use them again and again and...well you get the idea. The point is, this way you aren't contributing to the landfill problem by using disposable containers. Not only that, but because bento boxes traditionally contain leftovers, you can put good use to the uneated portions of last night's dinner and avoid the guilty feeling of wasting perfectly good food. Many even come with divided compartments to help determine a good portion size to eliminate the worry of overeating.

Another great benefit of the bento box is how appealing they are to kids. Take this Hello Kitty bento for instance. The design is so darn cute and kid-friendly you'll likely be able to sneak healthy foods like cucumber, white rice, a hard-boiled egg, cherry tomatoes and carrots right past their suspicious little noses.

And the best part is you can customize them to your exact preferences. If you like a little more fiber, use brown rice instead of white. Have a hankering for more fruit? No problem, just substitute some of the carrot with sliced apples!
