Review: Monbento Lunch box + accessories

Years ago I started making Bento Boxes (Japanese lunch boxes) and I really liked it and I'm not really sure why I stopped doing it! Bento boxing perfectly fits in my healthy lifestyle, since it's perfect to prep my meals in. Last weekend this Monbento lunch box came in the mail and immediately prepped monday's lunch in there!

I got the original white and grey double lunch box!
Let me tell you more about this lunch box!
The first collection designed by monbento®, MB Original is the ideal format for lunch at the office, picnics and TV dinners.

Consisting in two airtight containers, a food cup for MB Original in color of top container or a divider and a wide elastic strap, foods stay in place and arrive intact.
Similar in design to its predecessor, the new version has many new features. Made in stronger high-quality plastic with a "soft-touch" finish, the new lunchbox combines sturdiness and style.

To vary your meals and open compartments more easily, the intermediary lid has also been improved and is now 100% airtight ! And because ease of use is an obsession for monbento®, the new MB Original is now fully microwave ready (thanks to a little silicone cap in the intermediary lids) and dishwasher safe.

CHARACTERISTICS :
Microwave-safe
Dishwasher-safe
Hermétique
Airtight
BPA-free
Food grade

COMPONENTS :
2 containers, 1 lid (material PBT)
2 intermediary lids (material PP)
1 food cup or a divider (material PP)
2 caps + joints (material Silicone)
1 elastic band (material Elastane)

I also got these little sauce cups. Perfect to hold your salad dressing or pine nuts!
They fit in the box perfectly!
A little extra: Silicon cups, you can add them as an extra container and in the big one you can bake stuff (like banana bread) that'll fit perfectly in you lunch box!
I got my Lunch box plus accessories from www.monbento.com, but for the Dutchies, they're also sold on Bol.com!

When I was out shopping with my sister in law, we both fell in love with this cactus t-shirt from Zara. I decided to do an outfit shoot with it because it's my favorite t-shirt at the moment. The pictures were taken by my favorite photographer, Shannon, in the lovely little town Zaltbommel.

Hotspot: Sajoer, Rotterdam

Last week I went on another food tour with fellow foodies: Charlie from Charlie's Kitchen, Michelle from Studentenvoer, Chantal from Feel Good By Food, Lisa from Lisa Goes Vegan and Eline from @elinekemp (Instagram). After our breakfast at Bertmans, we walked to the Markthal, where we tried out a juice from Sajoer. A slowjuice bar with lots of different fun flavors to pick from. I choose the Shrek and it was delicious!

Recipe: Tortizza Tonno

Het Nederlandse recept staat onderaan!

When I'm craving pizza (and that is often), I make a couple of tortizzas. Not as bad as a real pizza, easy and a lot of fun to make. Just put anything you have on there and make it as (un)healthy as you please.

What you need for 2 tortizzas:

  • 2 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 small can of tomato paste
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 can of tuna in olive oil
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 tbsp of grated cheese
Directions:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Divide the tomato paste between the tortillas and cover them with a thin layer.
  3. Top it with the tuna, red onion and cherry tomatoes and finish with grated cheese, as much as you like. 
  4. Put them in the oven for 12 minutes.
Dutch recipe:

Benodigdheden voor 2 tortizzas:
  • 2 volkoren wraps
  • 1 klein blikje tomatenpuree
  • 1 klein rood uitje, gesnipperd
  • 1 blikje tonijn in olijfolie
  • 6 cherry tomaten, gehalveerd
  • 4 eetl. geraspte kaas
Directions:
  1. Warm de oven voor op 180 graden celsius.
  2. Verdeel de tomatenpuree over de twee wraps, smeer het goed uit.
  3. Verdeel de tonijn, tomaatjes en uitje over de twee wraps en besprenkel het geheel met de geraspte kaas.
  4. Zet ze voor 12 minuten in de oven.
