Stuffed Salmon Bento

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

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.

    Looks yummy and so special. If I could make lunch like this, I'd never eat fast food again.

Yellowfin Tuna Bento

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

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!


Yoga Workout That's Worth It!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

When I do yoga I generally do not feel that much afterward so I tend to not even put the time into the fitness tracker. Today I came across a wonderful 46 minute video for fitness yoga infusion. It is a combination of yoga and also exercise. I was actually sweating, not a normal thing when doing yoga. It is not intense however your wrists will hurt slightly at the end of the first 30 minutes. I highly suggest it to anyone looking for a little yoga fun while getting a workout!

Getting Bored with Daily Routine

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

The last few days I have lost interest in the exercising that I have been doing for a few months now. I started doing 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels, which I love! Unfortunately after watching the videos each and everyday, I have memorized all the things that Jillian says in it. So after not getting motivated to work intensively the last few days, I have decided to again mix things up again. I'm taking a few days of the circuit training and trying something new! I found a wonderful website that I wanted to share with everyone that is free! It has different types of exercise videos that you can stream online for free (or purchase if you want to download). It has everything from yoga to dance! So much fun! I just wanted to share with everyone, since I'm sure I'm not the only one getting bored with the same home routines. emoticon

    I've memorized my Leslie Sansone tapes, but I usually make different faces and respond to some of her remarks with my own funny comments. Surprisingly I haven't gotten tired of them and it's been about a year and a half. The website sounds really cool too! Have fun!
