What is typical Japanese dinner? - 01-23-2007, 10:01 PM

I'm doing this research paper on Japanese diets. Since I'm studying Nutrition, I thought it would be interesting topic.You know, the Sushi restaurants/ take out are called Japanese food, but sometimes they add American food. This creates non-original Japanese food. But what do Japanese eat for breakfast, lunch dinner?

**I already wrote on this so I just coped it **

Rice is the main food group in Japan, Miso soup is another common thing you see on a Japanese table.

Vegetables and fruit are side dishes as is different kinds meats but but Meat is not always served.

This is basically what I ate while on my home stay in Japan (Of course they would serve American food (like Hamburger) some nights, but Rice is still on the table ^_^;;

Rice is like the weight of the meal. It`s always there, sitting in the corner, adding calories to whatever else you`re eating.

In our house, meat is pretty much always in one thing. We have weird little rules - one dish with meat in it, one of almost entirely vegetables, and one soupy thing. These can all be combined together into one dish (Japanese style curry or stew) or can all be separate.

We actually don`t use miso all that much, but tofu is present almost everyday in some form.


Make the move!

Don't forget that Japanese quisine is versatile on it's own when it comes to side-diches. Even spagetti has been mentioned as a side dish.

I've read an article about Japanese food, and found out that people in Osaka have been noted to live up to a hundred years of age. That's because of their diet. The eat rice, fish and veggies, all boiled. No fat, no cholesterol, no bad stuff...

Tofu is simply soy. Soy is good for you. Soy beans can be made into most anything...seriously.

Meat tasting food.
tofu.
Even CRAYONS if you can believe it.

Soy is a wonderful thing. I wish people would give it more of a chance.


Life brings death.
Death brings eyes.
Each time we blink
we open our eyes again,
yet, when we blink our last
people will close their eyes and tear.

However, the death will cause people to eventually open their eyes once again.
Become stronger, strive to live as long as they can.
Life brings death.
Death Brings life.
