When I started this blog it seemed like there weren’t that many active packed lunch blogs, but lately I’m seeing all kinds of new ones and I haven’t been able to keep up. I’d like to put together a full, organized list of packed lunch blogs to update my Link list, so I’m throwing it open to all of you. Do you have a current blog that’s mostly focused on packed lunches? It doesn’t matter if you use bento boxes, Laptop Lunchboxes, Mr. Bento-style thermal lunch jars, or a brown bag — I’m interested in your lunch contents and packing methods.
Comment here or e-mail me at lunchinabox (AT) gmail (DOT) com with the following:
- The name and URL of your blog
- Any special focus you have. Vegetarian? Gluten-free? Lactose-free? Diet? Food art? Regional food? One particular style of container (Mr. Bento or Laptop Lunchbox)?
- Are the lunches made for children, adults, or both?
- The language of your blog, if it’s not English.
In the meantime, here are a couple of bento blogs I’m taken with.
LJ user commoi has created a quirky bento blog with intelligent anthropological commentary, striking photos, and fun drawings.
An American mom born and raised in Japan makes adorable “kyara-ben” or food art character bentos for her children. Back in Tokyo and blogging again after a one-year hiatus, she sheds light on how to create cute food art and comments on bento-making in Japan.
