Happy New Year,

We hope you are starting off the New Year rested and ready for a fresh beginning. Most of us will begin the year with a resolution or two. Did you know that the number one resolution most people make is to lose weight? I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise given that we are bombarded with tempting treats and overindulgence beginning in October! If you are feeling ready to get back on track, we are here to partner with you in your journey. Learn more about our Portion Perfect Bento HERE. For weight loss tips, 500 calorie menu ideas and ways to keep you inspired.


Wishing you health and wellness in 2015!
 
From Our Desk To Yours
NEW YEAR! NEW YOU!
We hear over and over that the key to weight loss and weight management is eating the right foods in the right portions. But portion sizes can be so confusing and there are so many diets to choose from: low carb, no fat, paleo, etc. It’s enough to make a person throw up their hands in frustration. That's why we've come up with the Portion Perfect bento Box. It's just the tool you'll need to succeed in keeping your New Year's Resolution.

"I am passionate about healthy eating, exercise, having a positive outlook on life and finding ways to inspire others to make healthy, positive changes and choices. I communicate via my Instagram page to get my message across and to spread the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

I love my Bento Lunchbox as it allows me to pack my lunches and snacks in a creative, fun and colourful way. The lunchbox is great for portion control, it allows me to be super organized and the food combinations I create are endless. Perfect for adults as well as kids, I take my bento with me wherever I go."

DID YOU KNOW?
Sometimes, when you make your favorite recipes, your jaw will drop at the amount of butter that goes into them. But, alas! We have found some amazing substitutions from Picklee.com to keep your jaw in place. We substituted some ingredients in some of our favorite recipes, and they taste just as good as the original, if not better, because you know there's less guilt!
