This month is all about encouraging healthy habits; from skincare routines and mindfulness practices to working out and one of our personal faves, meal prepping! Meal prepping isn’t just about convenience; it’s an artful way to nourish your body efficiently while saving money on those lunch time meal deals (and all the plastic packaging that comes with them!) So who better to partner up with than Beegreener, a brand that makes stylish, high-quality bento boxes that are design-led as well as functional! Beegreener have been kind enough to share a recipe with us from their recipe book which actually comes free with the purchase of any of their lunch boxes! Check out their Vegan Curry Fried Rice recipe below!
When you think of Japanese food, things that come to mind would probably be sushi or ramen. But there’s actually a big curry culture in Japan and just like any other cuisine in Japan, Japanese curry is packed with umami. This recipe is the easiest and quickest way for busy folks like you to enjoy this intricate flavor curry has to offer!
