You might have thought bentos were only good for lunch, but breakfast is really where it’s at. Eating the most important meal of the day out of a bowl is fine and all, but using a bento box to create an Instagram-worthy spread takes your meal to the next level. Just ask Odile Joly-Petit, a vegan recipe developer based in the Netherlands.
She created a dish that’s just as colorful and vibrant as it is healthy, and it’s incredibly easy to make. With a base of oatmeal, fruit, and nuts, it’s a powerhouse combo that’ll leave you full and satisfied until lunch.
