Since my return to the northern states, I am eager to start eating like it is summer. This morning I decided to kick things off with a nice Ani Phyo raw vegan juice. I love drinking juice, just not cleaning the machine. If only there were an easier way... If you have never tried to juice anything but have a juicer sitting around, I highly suggest this morning brew to get you rolling.
Green Machine Recipe by Ani Phyo
2 cups Spinach, washed well
2 cucumbers1 bunch parsley, washed well
1 lemon, peeled
1 tbsp ginger, whole
Juice all these ingredients together and drink immediately.
*Note: This is supposed to serve 4 People but 2 of us drink it.
This is an easy way to get tons of minerals and vitamins without having too many calories. I'm not sure about the calorie count but I'm sure since the juice is 100% raw vegan and has the vegetable meat extracted - it does not contain too many. Some day I might learn how to count calories of juiced items.

The thing I love about bentos is that there are many tiny proportions of many different types of foods. My husband and I stretch out our money easily by cutting our recipes in half and purchasing smaller amounts that normal. By doing this we can make a few recipes per meal while still only getting a few calories to meet our daily requirements. After living in Japan, I found that my tastebuds would grow tired after the first few bites of one thing. Bentos give your mouth a taste of something and then you can freely move on to something else. It is like making your cake and eating it too. (Isn't that how that phrase goes?)
Contents: Stuffed Salmon, traditional Japanese egg omelet, kinpira- low sugar recipe (Japanese traditional seasoned carrots), vegetarian gyzas, a cube of organic cheese, traditional Japanese seasoned spinach with sesame seeds and two lemongrass chickensticks.

Generally I eat a salad with feta cheese for lunch however my husband is a hungry man (although you wouldn't know it from looking at his thin figure). Here is a healthy bento that I made for him today. It has traditional Japanese omelets, green tea brown rice with black sesame seeds, traditional Japanese sesame seed spinach, and a few edamame. It is a very healthy lunch, size proportion is the key to success!
