I think I want to go to Japan for a holiday and just eat.
They have the healthiest diet in the world, low obesity rates, and high life expectancy.
There is a reason for that and it all relates to diet.
Strong on fish, fruit and vegetables and soy products. I think places like Japan and other parts of Asia understand nutrition. It makes me so sad to see the influx of Western food there and the rise of obesity levels in the younger generations. Its just not right. We butcher food, they create magic with it.
We had Japanese for lunch at Crave Sushi, Terrigal Beach yesterday. It was cheap, light, healthy and delicious.
Kalyra loved it as well which says something.
We started off with a bowl of edamames. I could seriously eat truck loads of these.
No Japanese meal is complete without miso soup– do you know how hearty and nutritious this is for you? It’s a tad on the salty side which suits my taste buds but at $2.50 a bowl how could you complain?
My lunch finished off with some vegetarian inside out rolls. I was so ecstatic to feel full and refreshed but not at all heavy or bloated. This is real eating.
Craig enjoyed Udon noodle soup with tempura vegetables. He was amazed at how good they were.
Next time you are going out for lunch consider Japanese.
