Taxi Bento Lunch Box Overview
So here is the overview of Taxi-themed bento lunch.
Menu for Taxi Bento Lunchbox
Tuna & Mayonnaise
Cucumber & Corn
How to make a Taxi
Step 1. Use a food scissors and cut orange skin to a car shape.
Step 2. Cut out seaweed, paste it with mayonnaise.
Can you see I used the skin of orange? Yup, I used it for Taxi!
I was looking at Orange skin when I was eating, decided that I could recycle this.
It has a vivid beautiful color, you can use for any orange characters😋
Besides orange, I used seaweed and mayonnaise as glue.
But you know what…. actually you can just use a permanent black pen, just draw directly on to the orange. 😅
The white parts are back of orange skin, I just scraped it off, made shapes with small knife.
I used scissors to cut out seaweed.
Lunch Packing Tips
When I pack lunch, I always think of color composition.
Meals are easy to become all brown. (meat, bread, in general, brown-ish)
All brown color is a bit sad…to avoid that, I usually try to put vivid colored food such as:
Cheese (yellow) 🧀
Fruit (green, orange, red, purple, pink… lots!) 🍎🍏🍋🍌🍇
Vegetables (green, red, yellow, orange, ) 🥒🍆🥕🌽
Egg (yellow, white) 🍳
This bento lunch box, I’d placed some Italian Lettuce on the bottom.
That way you see green already, then red strawberry, yellow corn, and orange taxi.
Good color mixture give fun feeling!

Here are some ideas
+ Use as lunch box message card
