1. Lean Bento
Lean Bento prepares and delivers bento meals made with wholesome ingredients and honest cooking. It was conceptualised by founder and director Charles Ng out of his frustration at the lack of flavourful, yet healthful, nutritionally bang-for-buck option for the man on the street, like himself. He began "wet market" grocery shopping and cooking from a very young age and had since understood the value of good quality ingredients and earnest cooking methods is one of the surest ways to encourage sustainable health. As an obese child turned fitness advocate, Charles designed all of Lean Bento's recipes to centre around a leaner balance of macronutrients, without the use of artificial flavour enhancers, use of highly-processed fat, carbohydrates and sugars.
Price range: $9.90 for a filling petite chicken bento to $16.50 for a premium salmon bento, $4.90 for protein desserts
