Rice! Gotta have it...stir-fried with veggies, sprinkled with furikake, made into cute onigiri and stuffed...the variations are endless! And it's so filling.
Oh...and I'm loving me some gyoza right now too. I picked up a couple of packs from the oriental market and they are sooo good nuked, then briefly pan-fried for a bit of crunch.

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever, Leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good, not evil; success, not failure; In order that I shall not regret the price that I paid for it." -Unknown
Another vote for tamago~ here! It's super quick, tasty, and it's easy to change the flavor a bit by mixing stuff in. And it's a good protein source, something I'm usually lacking.
I've been packing a lot of Morningstar "chick'n" nuggets lately too. :/ But I'm starting to get pickier at how all the items in my lunch box go together, and more Asian flavors tend to go with rice and pickles better.

Of course you can stick anything in your bento if you want, but I was wondering what everyone else liked in theirs?
I loooove edamame, tamagoyaki or flavored tofu cubes. Those are nice for my protein. Sticky rice is a must. Snap peas and carrots for my veggies. Tempura fried broccoli or sweet potatoe good too, but that's once in a while.
