Japanese-born Naomi Moriyama reveals the secret to her own high-energy, successful lifestyle–and the key to the enduring health and beauty of Japanese women–in this exciting new book.
The Japanese have the pleasure of eating one of the most delicious, nutritious, and naturally satisfying cuisines in the world without denial, without guilt…and, yes, without getting fat or looking old.
As a young girl living in Tokyo, Naomi Moriyama grew up in the food utopia of the world, where fresh, simple, wholesome fare is prized as one of the greatest joys of life.
She also spent much time basking in that other great center of Japanese food culture: her mother Chizuko’s Tokyo kitchen. Now she brings the traditional secrets of her mother’s kitchen to you in a book that embodies the perfect marriage of nature and culinary wisdom–Japanese home-style cooking.
The Japanese enjoy daily cooked meals where traditional meal consists of grilled fish, bowl of rice, cooked vegetables, soup, green tea and fruits. It is important to point out that the Japanese consume about 10 per cent of all fish in the world, although they make up 2 per cent of the world population.
The writer states in her book that since childhood parents tell their children to eat slowly and to appreciate every bite. They never should completely fill the bowl or serve huge portions and that each food should be served separately.
Did you know that many experts think that the Japanese breakfast is considered to be one the most important meals and it may consist of a number of foods and drinks, but mainly includes green tea, steamed rice, soup, tofu, young garlic, seaweed, omelet or a piece of fish?
The Japanese women usually avoid desserts and sugary stuff, but when they are on the menu, they are mainly served in small portions. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not saying that Japanese women don’t like chocolate, cookies, ice cream and cakes, but they simple realize what negative consequences these dishes have on body and what long-term side effects then can have on your health.
Naomi Moriyama said:
“Exercise is part of the daily routine in Japan and in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle they built an entire culture of biking, walking and hiking,”.
