      Have you never seen an American food tray? The ones with a main rectangle, 4 squares, and a silverware sliver on the side? You should, Steve MRE uses one to display shit, that is required viewing for Culinaly.

      This shit is literally standard for schools, prisons, military, and various "cafeteria" style places.

      Americans are shit at cooking for themselves, so anything from home will be corpo slop (Lunchables) or a brown bag with a basic sandwich and maybe a fruit or some shit. If you are lucky a thermos of soup or stew. Like this shit here:

      >Why did Bentos never take off in the west?
      Because americans value convenience over everything else. Why take lunch from home when you can buy?
      Here in india we used to have these cool stainless steel lunch boxes but they are not very popular with children anymore (children prefer bright coloured plastic boxes). With adults, they are still quite popular

    Something similar is common in my country, but we don't call it bento because we're not weebs.
    If by "West," you mean the anglosphere, then that's because speaking English as your primary (let's be honest: sole) language renders you allergic to produce so while one compartment might have meat, the others would just be empty.

    Probably at the end of the day comes down to zen Buddhist influence vs Christian influence

    A belief in living a life of balance which includes taking breaks in the afternoon vs a living a life where depriving yourself of things is seen as a virtuous quality (but then secretly you binge on those things you deprive yourself of when nobody is looking)

        It's not really a matter of how the religion is practiced though, it's the way the religion moves into secular society

        Whether you are a Christian or not the legal system and social expectations you have when you live in a Western nation is based on Christianity
        Weird sex stuff isn't frowned upon in the shinto-buddhism of Japan and they have brothels, and under age gravure idols
        The religion informs the society

        This will extend to things as simple as lunch time
        Taking a long lunch break is slothful, it's sinful, it's shameful
        Stuff your face with a day old sandwich out of the company vending machine and guzzle another 16oz of coffee then get back to work
        In fact eat while you work, take a bite in between each paragraph you type

          That's not christianity doing that. it's capitalism, regardless of religion. if your boss could deny you a break, he would.

    A "bento box" large enough to satisfy a typical american would be impractically large, and these individuals are not carrying around what amounts to a full size army ruck sack just for their lunch. It's much more logistically feasible to not bring food anywhere and simply order bulk slops from a location near their place of work or recreation.

          jews wanted to discourage goyim from idolizing the blue collar workers who used lunch boxes, and discourage women from proactively taking care off their family's meals. you will consume the over priced slop and not prepare your own meals at home.

          meanwhile in hightrust japan, your wife or mother is expected to do her duty as the caring female lead of your family and provide you with your daily meal in a convient reusable container.

          American lunchboxes used to have cartoon characters and other capeshit on them, therefore it gets the stigma that lunchbox = kids, despite adults bringing lunchboxes to work all the fricking time. Same with cartoons = kids. Kids watch them, therefore cartoons = kids, doesn't matter that R18 cartoons exist. Normies are pretty fricking dumb (all that lead back then), hence the correlation = causation error shit with them.

    Women aren't waking up an hour before their kids to make breakfast
    Also rice just makes things easier, since you can set it up before you sleep and have fresh rice ready for breakfast and/or lunch boxes, reducing the effort and time needed.

    I’ve been living off of eggs and toast for breakfast (sometimes salsa and tortilla chips) and three granola bars with an apple for lunch.

    For dinner I usually get something way better or just steak and rice.

    Is there anything wrong with this eating routine? I don’t snack between meals and I’m not very hungry in the first place.

    Because most americans now don't eat multiple things for their lunch. They get one entree like a sandwich or salad with meat or meat and rice and veg.

    Before and possibly only tradies who still get packed lunches made, they'd get breakfast packed with coffee. Their lunches would be an entree, maybe a soup, fruit, and water/juices. Chips/crackers and candy snacks are included.

    I'm looking for a bento box, it cant be pinku (that's Japanese for pink) or any girl color. It has to be of 2 or more kotoba (that's Japanese for 2 compartments) and has be be chibi (small) sized. And has to be really kawaii (cute). Also It has to be about 10-20 bux. And you have to post pics of it first (i want to make shure it's kawaii). And it would be nice if it came with matching chopstick holder (WITH chopsticks).

    OH! and it CANNOT have any cartoon pictures, or be made out of plastic. It has to be made of ceramic, or something like that. Also it would be nice if it was made in japan. and not in china or corea (Korea) or whatever. I have found a bento box similar to the one im describing in e-bay, but it was 1 kotoba, and i don't want my gohan (rice) to touch my other things (it can get wet and i would not like that, plus 2 compartments looks more kawaii).
