The week meal plan at my home goes like this. We indulge on wild, local fish for three (3) days thanks to Blue Moon. I buy a whole chicken for two (2) days meal. The remaining two (2) days is devoted to red meat (most of the time, lamb or pork) and vegetable day.

I prepare vegetables in the Japanese way, so no dairy products, including cheese, is used. No American style raw green salad either appears at our table. I use at least 4 to 5 varieties of seasonal vegetables to create a meal. I use several cooking techniques in order to produce different flavor, color and texture in the prepared dishes.

Take a look at some of my favorite vegetable dishes here, including the ones from Hiroko’s Ameircan Kitchen. Rice dish, soup dish, deep-fried dish, stir-fried dish, steamed dish…..

I have recently read in one article that if we introduce once a week vegetable meal at home we can contribute to the reduction of green house gas to a great degree. Acidification of water is also endangering the existence of fish and shellfish. King crab in Alaska is one of them. Bad news continues. So, we should take an action now.
