Please feel free to email me: email@example.com About Me My name is Kristie Winget, and I am a professional mom to 4 kids – 2 are adults, and 2 are teens. And I also have one grandson. After looking around for some fresh ideas on how to pack healthy lunches and snacks for my family, I discovered the interesting concept of bento – japanese lunches that are packed in compact little bento boxes, and are artfully arranged to make healthy foods more appealing to eat. After a fun trip to San Francisco where I stocked up on bento supplies, I lamented to my husband that I needed some little kids to pack these adorable lunches for. He told me to practice on him, since no one would see his food and he didn’t care if it was cute as long as it tasted good. After a few weeks of unleashing my creativity on him, friends started asking me how I made all those cute foods. It turns out my dear husband had been taking pictures of all his lunches and posting them on Facebook! My daughter convinced me to start a blog, where I show how to make fun lunches and prepare healthy food in advance. I also plan to share my gluten free recipes that I’ve created over the past decade since finding out that my youngest son and I are gluten intolerant. My purpose with this blog is to share what I’ve learned about planning and preparing clean and healthy foods, sharing my recipes, but especially packing bento lunches for myself, my husband, my kids, and my grandson. I hope it will be beneficial! My family: My grandson and I playing with some of my fun bento tools!
