Rainbow Bento 1

I have been thinking about doing a rainbow bento for a while and finally got around to it. I also have been wanting to experiment with using fresh vegetable juice to dye things like rice, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I also wanted to use at least 1 fruit and 1 veggie in each color. Here is what I came up with. Fruits: strawberry, orange, pineapple, green grapes (I wish I had kiwi), blueberries and purple grapes. Veggies: red bell pepper, cherry tomato, carrots, orange cauliflower, golden beets, crookneck squash, snap peas, turnip (tried to dye with blue dye but it didn't take well), and purple kale.

Read how I did it here on my blog
