This is how I made a more Americanized bento! Small sandwiches with veggies and fruit, cheese to fill in spaces. I did this in about ten minutes! It is kind of sloppy though. This article is very helpful but bento should NOT have raw fish or raw meat in it as it will not be refrigerated in most cases and those will spoil the quickest! It can make you sick! Sushi is not really meant to be in bento as sushi on its own is an art and is meant to be eaten as fresh as possible! Also it is important to remember that bento should always have very little to no spaces in between the foods so as to not shift around in the container when it's moved.
