Trader Joe’s has frozen swordfish steaks.  They are reasonably priced and very tasty.  I made some Swordfish sticks from Naomi Kijima’s bento book with them.  Good stuff!

Also Konnyaku is an excellent “diet” food.  It has virtually 0 calories and next to no nutritional value, but it absorbs flavors very well.  It is a very filling item and the flavor in it can help to appease a ravenous appetite (use it sparingly, however!).   I like the texture a lot.

Not really keeping with your traditional bento theme, but, Konnyaku Shiritake with Spaghetti Sauce and Parmesan Cheese is the whip.
