Our recommendations for food and nutrition are updated here
Aug 24th 2020 - Can't travel now ✈️ ?! So let's bring the 🌎 World on the Table 😃✨
Ela's Noodle Doodle 🍜
I came up with this the other day when i felt like i wanted to go on a trip. We cannot travel right now so why not bring these wonderful foreign treats into your own kitchen.
Add a side dish of salad or eggs
July 8th 2020 - 🌈 Colours increase joy: Let's keep eating Rainbows 😋✨
Colours definitely inspire me to eat with joy so i like 'eating a rainbow' whenever possible.
I like preparing a whole bunch of cabbage salad and then add it to each of my bento boxes. It makes the prep time for bentos shorter and especially with cabbage the flavour deepens and sometimes it's like having pickles, yum!
Do you have a sweet tooth?
The sweetness that results from slicing raw cabbage and carrots really fine is astounding. Together with the natural sweetness of the
Japanese pumpkin i don't feel like i need a dessert after my lunch or dinner. If you have a sweet tooth try it out!
Simple Grilled Salmon, cooling purple Cabbage Salad with thinly sliced Carrot & Cucumber and Goji berries (Kuko no mi helps to cool the body during the summer heat), half peeled rice (gobutsuki with mochi kibi) and umeboshi flakes, steamed broccoli, ladies fingers and zucchini with sesame seeds and fried pumpkin.
April 4th 2020 - 🌈 Let's eat a Rainbow 😃✨
🌈 Eat a rainbow! Colours signal the presence of diversity in nutrients:
A range of naturally occurring colour in your food helps ensure you're getting enough fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients (beneficial substances produced by plants).
👩🏼🎨 A work of art or an act of creativity 🧑🏼🍳 - increase your joy 😋
Eating a 🌈 rainbow of colours helps to protect against illness, strengthens the immune system, supports bone density and digestion, and as a result makes weight management easy.
Colours increase joy in daily life as well: It’s easier to know what to choose when you’re out shopping, try it!
Cooking then becomes a creative act which you can follow up by eating your artwork - 😃
Curried Sasami Chicken, Gobutsuki (50% peeled rice) with Mochi Kibi and Mochi Awa, a sprinkle of sesame and ume flakes;

Lunchbox for three 🍱 😃✨
Simple coconut chicken curry, hatahata for extra calcium, spring style vegetable medley, and lotsa greeeeens since we believe live & fresh food keeps us alive & fresh, too 😉.
By the way, did you know that coconut oil & flakes, turmeric, pepper, curry powder and ginger are super tasty ingredients for a simple & quick curry, besides being fantastic antioxidants & anti-inflammatory agents 🎶.
March 20th 2020 - Protein & Vitamin/Mineral balance:
Ela’s dinner bento: Moroccan lamb stew, kale 🥬 greens from her garden plot and ‘gobutsuki’ (50% polished rice) with sesame seed for extra calcium.
The perfect protein/vitamin and mineral balance to support the immune system 💪😊
