Notes: I don't know why the holes in the lotus root freak me out, but they do. It certainly seems healthy.


  1. I'm seeing a pattern here. The Japanese school lunches are usually delicious looking (if a bit "exotic" to an American like me), and the American lunches are varying levels of CRAP (ranging from junk food I might want to eat every now and then, to stuff I wouldn't take one bite of).

    No wonder the Japanese have such long life expectancies while Americans are obese.
