Diet in Japan

Chicken Shack Japanese Restaurant Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

E. Welch

Mrs. Welch shares her experience with food (diet) from Japan: The pictures are from a place called Chicken Shack, an old Japanese House located in the hills converted into a restaurant. When one arrives, they sit on the floor atop of Japanese pillow at a traditional Japanese dinner table. The food was fantastic. I had the infamous chicken and gyoza (dumplings). James (husband) had a rice ball. Waterfalls run throughout and around the restaurant.

The food was very good. Definitely healthier. Their diet consist of lean meats, veggies and rice. Everything is fresh especially the veggies. They tend to frown on frozen food. They eat small portions. The rice ball is considered a full meal. Typically, they eat a rice ball, like that, a cup (4oz.) of soup. That is it! No more drinks, alcohol or tea?

Happy Birthday and thanks to Mrs. Welch for sharing her experience. What can you learn from their diet? How could you improve your diet? What about your diet is already great?

Health Fraud: FDA

FDA – Health Fraud Scams
Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

Unfortunately health fraud scams are prevalent and many fall prey to them besides the elderly. I have personally been misdiagnosed, which included fraudulently signing my name to several medical documents and applications without my consent. Like many who are misdiagnosed to charge higher or unnecessary fees to insurance companies, medicare and medicaid, my health deteriorated to the worst condition I have ever experienced during my life. Some medical professionals will misdiagnose you based on a voting system based on no scientific evidence often handing out prescriptions to legitimize their diagnosis. The FDA is correct: these activities can and have put peoples lives in danger and have cost some their lives. Be well informed. As those who seek medical care the red flags do not always seem as obvious as you think. Undercover Epicenter Nurse: How Fraud, Negligence, and Greed Led to Unnecessary Deaths at Elmhurst Hospital reveals just how easy and how many lives have and can be lost.

COVID 19: A view from Japan

covid 19 shidonna raven garden and cook

A former colleague of ours recently relocated to Japan from the Hampton Roads, VA, USA area. Upon arrival her and her husband were in quarantine for 14 days, the typical time for a COVID 19 quarantine. They are settling in okay. She reported that the Japanese measures for preventing the spread of COVID 19 were much stricter than here in the states. After their 14 day quarantine, they took a COVID 19 test via nasal and were cleared to come out from their hotel. During the quarantine they could not leave for even food. Food was brought to them by their sponsor. Indeed Japan has over 10 ways to recycle and are reported to have an extensive and strict recycling plan.

What could we learn from our neighbors? What if the COVID 19 cases numbers fell within 2 months in the U.S.? Indeed to this day some states are still experiencing spikes. What should a national plan for the U.S. look like? Japan was slated to host the 2020 Olympics, which was canceled because of the pandemic.

When we began our journey in gardening, which stemmed from a need to be in better health, Eliot Coleman was the stand out grower, farmer and gardener. He has set what we consider to be today’s gold standard in True organic growing. I lieu of our own interview, below is his book The Four Season Farm, Gardener’s Cookbook, which we love because if you do not grow you Do likely cook. So, it is the best of both worlds. If you decide to go from the table to a garden, you already have the book. Eliot crystallized what organic means in definition and in practice. We are growing from Norfolk, VA, USA and enjoy his books and think you will too.
