Japan and the US have been crazy for Bento boxes long before the "waste-free" lunch box trend hit Australia. SV Mama is a member of the Flikr Vegan Bento group that has lots of photos of Bento lunches. Not actual recipes, but lots of ideas to fill up little boxes, like pictured here: Garlic Bread, Ravioli with Marinara Sauce, Pineapple Guavas and Sauteed Brussel Sprouts. Not sure I could get brussel sprouts past the kids!

Not the exact recipes, but ideas you can try - you just need to track down some Acai pulp! If you’re everin Santa Barbara, look up Backyard Bowls. To make Acai bowls they blend the frozen pulp of the Acai berry with fruits and coconut milk into a thick smoothie. Put that blend in a bowl, top it with granola, fresh fruits, Goji berries and honey.
German influenced, so some great gluten-free breads and vegan sausages. The longest link list of other Vegan food blogs I’ve ever seen. Learn to make Seitan, which is made from wheat gluten and when cooked looks a lot like meat. RECIPE PICK * Olive and Seitan Sausages
When you go shopping for supplies, don't forget your reusable shopping bag!
