Get Healthy with Bento!

What is bento?
According to my Japanese dictionary, "bento" simply means "a packed [box] lunch."  A traditional Japanese bento has rice, protein (tofu, egg, fish, or meat), and vegetables (pickled or cooked).  Overtime bento has evolved into an artform, using all varieties of food to create beautiful arrangements.  Bento culture has expanded globally.  Yet despite the diversity of these portable single-meals, a bento box still has one universal pre-requisite: it must be crafted with care.
Get Healthy with Bento!
Get on board, bento is reviving the lunchbox culture!  Sure, we know that packing lunch saves money.  But it's healthy too!  Here's 3 reasons why bento's all-star nutrition line-up makes me excited to pack my lunch:
1. Portion Control.
The whole purpose of bento is to fit an entire meal into a box.  Bento containers come in many shapes and sizes; what a fun way to monitor calorie intake and portion sizes.  Brilliant!
2. Balance in a Box.
Bento is about balancing food groups, and the options are endless.  The main players are carbohydrate (rice, pasta, potato) and protein (meat, fish, egg, tofu, leftover dinner).  However vegetables and fruit add shape and color, making them the real stars of the show.  It's more than just slopping leftovers into a tin.  It is meal planning.  With bento it's easy to eat all the food groups, in one box!
3. A Bento Mindset is a Healthy Mindset.  
While arranging my first bento, I realized that I felt a strong ownership over my food.  I think bento fosters an appreciation for food.  Surely such a thoughtful attitude will stimulate more healthful food choices and less mindless eating.  I believe that a healthy mindset is the first step to a healthy body.  A dose of bento might be just the trick for both.

If I had the big bucks, I would book a flight to New York City.
Or I would endure the 4 hour Bolt-bus ride and go to 1st avenue and East 10th Street.
Then I would step inside Noodle Bar and order the Momofuku ramen.

Instead, I'm browsing in the Borders bookstore on Boylston Street, Boston.  And for the last 20 minutes I've planted myslef in front of the "Season's Eating" display, monopolizing the new hardback cookbooks.  I'm stuck on Momofuku.  Momofuku is the memoirs of chef David Chang.  It is also the story of Noodle Bar, Ssam Bar, and Ko-his three NYC restaurants.  Momofuku is also a cookbook and coffeetable picture book.  Momofuku, a flashy read.  But the recipes look challenging.

Dietetic Internship, Community Nutrition Rotation
Massachusetts Department of Public Health, 
Massachusetts State WIC Program
November 2nd-20th, 2009

Massachusetts WIC handout: Introducing Vegetables
Just finished up my fifth rotation of the dietetic internship.  Three weeks of community nutrition, and I loved every day!  Ok fine, I wasn't jumping up and down every single second--but this experience was stimulating and very instructive.

So, what is WIC?  WIC is a federally funded nutrition program for women, infants, and children (WIC) that started in 1974.  WIC primarily offers nutrition education, checks to buy food, and referals for medical care.  And who is WIC for?  WIC is for children under 5 years old, women (from prenatal to postpartum), breastfeeding women, or families under a certain income level.   In undergraduate classes, WIC was presented with a reverant aura of respect.  I learned that it is an established, powerful, and effective community nutrition program.  But coming to the MA Department of Public Health WIC office, I got to see the behind-the-scenes management at the state level.  I learned about WIC's nutrition education initiatives within Massachusetts, and I learned a lot about myself too!

MA WIC Handout: Breastfeed For A Full Year.
What did I do for 3 weeks?
1. Visited 2 local WIC programs (East Boston and Somerville)
2. Assisted with the Mass in Motion Blog.  This is a nutrition education piece with the MA State Department of Public Health.
3. Researched nutrition information to update WIC's Pregnancy Guide
4. Helped write the December WIC Nutrition Buzz, on the Mix 104.1 local radio network
5. Attended WIC training, staff meetings, WIC Breastfeeding Coordinator meeting, webinars, and teleconferences.

MA WIC Handout: Infant feeding 0-6 Months.
What did I learn?
I learned all about WIC!  
WIC is huge.  It's BIG!  It's national.  (I had heard some crazy statistic, saying that 60% of dietitians or something in America work for WIC.  Now I might believe this.)  And the Massachusetts WIC has money to work with (from both the federal and state government).  The big bucks make such a difference in community nutrition.  You can offer many more services to your clients,  and continuing education to your staff.  This challenged my view of community nutrition, which had been limited to small programs with limited funds.

I learned that WIC has a new food package!  Since October 1, 2009 WIC programs across the country are now offering checks redeemable for fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains (bread, tortillas, or brown rice), whole grain cereals, canned fish, and even baby food.
I learned about nutrition counseling.  
I never took a counseling class in undergrad, so this was great.  The Massachusetts WIC office discovered that emotion-based counseling is more effective in changing behavior than instructional counseling.  The state office has developed a nutrition education curriculem called Touching Hearts Touching Minds (THTM).  THTM has 33 handouts, and I've included my favorites here.  I learned about participant-centered counseling through the WIC Framingham training day.  This profoundly affected me.  There I learned that the most important thing is to listen to your client.  As a nutrition professional, can I be a good listener?
I learned about myself.
This rotation changed my view of public health nutrition.  During these 3 weeks, I relished my independence.  I came into the office each morning with a purpose.  As I walked up the stairs (or rode the elevator) I  could visualize the small stack of papers waiting on my desk.  I liked the feeling of accomplishment when I could finish a project and give it to my preceptor.   I liked the challenge of finding the latest information on nutrition topics and writing about them.  This was quite hard, and I need to get better at researching.  With so much nutrition information out there, it is hard to narrow down the current and relevant information.  I am learning how to collaborate with clients, peers, and authorities.

MA WIC Handout: Infant Feeding 6-8 months.
What did I like about this 3-week rotation?
State job.  You can leave at 4 or 4:30pm.  I loved this rotation, because I didn't need to bring any work home on the nights.  Good thing, since school is getting more crazy at the end of the semester.  Made for early 7:30-8am mornings though.  I liked the work atmosphere in the state office.  Great nutritionists there.
At the state office, people are working on projects that they know will make a difference.  Their nutrition education materials and policies will benefit many people.
At the local WIC programs, I like the busy atmosphere.  Between scheduled appointments and walk-ins, the pace was fast.

What did I not like about this 3-week rotation?
Although I am thankful for my brief visits to the local WIC programs, I am not sure if I would like working at a local WIC program.  The nutrition education is repetitive.  Also it is hard to develop a quality conversation with the participants due to lack of time, disinterest of the participant, or both.  The nutrition education at the local sites required less critical thinking skills and more personal counseling skills.  I need to work on both of those skill sets.  
This is whiny...but I didn't like sitting at a cubicle in the state office.  Tap, tap, tap at the computer all day. 

Could I see myself working in this type of position?
Yes.  I think I like researching and writing nutrition information for education materials.
If so, what skills would I need to learn?
Research skills.  Writing skills.  Counseling skills.  Managing skills.  Microsoft excel skills.  I wish I got better at excel in undergrad!  *hint for any dietetics students who might read this*

P is for Polenta

A few days ago I wrote about Judith Jones' book The Pleasures of Cooking for One.  Among her many recipes I was particulary eye-boggled by the Baked Polenta with Vegetables.  Before returning the book last week, I photocopied the recipe and taped it to my wall as motivation.  Polenta, oh mysterious polenta.  My mom never cooked polenta while I was growing up; and I didn't eat it until a year ago, perhaps.  Until today I associated polenta with fancy restaurants, where it is delicately dollaped underneath an overpriced steak.  Polenta is just not in my vocabulary.  But Jones' recipe makes it super easy!

Baked Polenta with Vegetables
from The Pleasures of Cooking for One
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 tomato, chopped
3 Tbsp chopped cooked spinach/Swiss chard
3-4 strips roasted pepper
*any cooked vegetables
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup medium-grain polenta
1 cup warm water

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in skillet and saute onion for a few minutes.  Add tomato and cook 2 minutes.  Mix in additional vegetables and add salt.  Remove from heat.  Put polenta in smallish, rather shallow baking dish, and stir in warm water and remaining olive oil. Add the sauteed vegetables, sprinkle in the rest of the salt, and stir everything together.  Bake in a preheated oven for 350 for 25 minutes, then sprinkle Parmesan on top.  Bake another 5 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.

*My modifications*  First, I accidentally bought kale instead of spinach (that's what I get for relying on a mental grocery list instead of writing it down).  Second, Jones' recipe is for an individual serving.  I decided to make the whole box of polenta, and had some fun baking minuture polenta cakes using a cupcake tin.  For the minuture polenta cakes (pictured below), I added less warm water so that the insides would be less creamy and more crumbly.  The polenta to water ration seems flexible, so just follow the box directions or added water until you reach a desired thickness.  Third, Jones calls for grated Parmesan cheese on top.  I did not add cheese.  Fourth, I added cut up deli lunch meat to the mixture.  But next time I think mini shrimp would be scrumptious!

The polenta turned out well, and it's actually pretty straighforward.  While the polenta was baking I found two fun links.   Mark Bittman's New York Times blog features a recent polenta post, Polenta Without Fear.  Also, Cook Almost Anything Blog features a Blueberry Polenta Cake, which looks like a cross between cornbread and sugary blueberry cake.  Oh yum.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

"Pain is inevitable.  Suffering is optional.  The hurt part is an unavoidable reality, but whether or not you can stand any more is up to the runner himself."

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
by Haruki Murakami
This is a fun book for runners, aspiring runners, writers, aspiring writers, or anyone inbetween!  I read it on the commuter rail to Framingham last week.  Inspiring.  Afterwards I was canceled my evening plans (date at the library with my textbooks!) and went for a long run.  For Murakami, writing and running were two passions that grew together.  He started running at age 33.  Around that time Murakami closed his Tokyo jazz bar and started a novel.  Now, after twelve books (maybe more) and over twenty marathons later, Murakami offers perspectives on his journey.

“Most of what I know about writing I’ve learned through running every day.  These are practical, physical lessons.  How much can I push myself?  How much rest is appropriate—and how much is too much?  How far can I take something and still keep it decent and consistent?  When does it become narrow-minded and inflexible?  How much shold I be aware of the world outside, and how much shold I focus on my inner world?  To what extent should I be confident in my abilities, and when should I start doubting myself?  I know that if I hadn’t become a long-distance runner when I became a novelist, my work would have ben vastly different.  How different.  Hard to say.  But something would have definitely been different.”

Murakami spent time writing and running in Japan, Hawaii, and...Cambridge!  Now when I run along the Charles River I picture him running those same paths.  At one point Murakami equates Boston with Sam Adams draft beer and Dunkin Donuts.  I chuckle, but have to agree.

Seseme Street's 40th Bday Celebrates Healthy Kids

Seseme Street, the longest running children's television program in the US, celebrated 40 years on November 10th, 2009!   The anniversary episode featured First Lady Michelle Obama, who helped Elmo and kids plant a garden (video link).   Also, check out this 40th anniversary news brief video, courtesy of Seseme Workshop.
I remember singing along with Ernie about rubber duckies, and counting apples with Count von Count.  But while some things have remained the same, it seems that Seseme Street has changed its messages to promote health in American youth.  This is awesome!
According to a recent The New York Times article by Alessandra Stanley"Mrs. Obama’s message on the anniversary episode isn’t an exhortation to future soldiers, scientists and presidents to be all that they can be, but to tiny consumers to eat the freshest food they can find. “Veggies taste so good when they come fresh from the garden, don’t they?” Mrs. Obama tells a rainbow coalition of children gathered around a soil tray, an echo of her White House kitchen garden. “If you eat all these healthy foods, you are going to grow up to be big and strong,” Mrs. Obama says, flexing her fists. “Just like me.”
 Cookie Monster’s palate was refined during Season 36 as part of the show’s “healthy habits for life” campaign. He now also gobbles fruits and vegetables, which are labeled by the show as “anytime” foods while cookies are held in reserve as “sometime” food. And almost every episode has a subliminal message about exercise and nutrition, along with a fruit bowl."
Happy Belated Birthday to Big Bird, Bert, Ernie and friends!

Fast Food, Junk Food...What's the difference?

Question: I want to know all about junk food, especially about what food is considered junk food.  Is food that contains lots of coconut milk considered as junk food, although it’s not fast food?  Is fast food the same as junk food?

Short Answer: Nope.  Although "fast food" and "junk food" have come to mean "unhealthy food," these terms have different definitions.

Long Answer: Great question! “Fast-food” and “junk food” are terms that we hear all the time. Although these phrases seem similar, they have slightly different meanings.  (I had to enlist help from the Merriam-Webster dictionary!)

Fast Food simply refers to the preparation and service of a food. Over time burgers, French fries, and chicken nuggets have become the icons of fast-food.  They symbolize convenience and easy availability.
Junk Food refers to the lack of healthy qualities in a food. These foods are usually high in sugar or unhealthy fat; and low in protein, fiber, whole grains, vitamins, and minerals.

Even with these definitions, the terms are hard to navigate. The confusion may be due to the fast food industry’s monopoly of the term “fast food.” Fast food restaurants are filled with sugar-loaded milkshakes and greasy hamburgers, and thus “fast food” has come to mean “junk food.” However, a closer look at Webster’s definition reminds us that “fast food” does not always mean “junk food.” A banana, an apple, a yogurt, a small bag of almonds…these foods are convenient, fast, and full of nutrients.

Now what about these fast food restaurants? Sure, they serve mostly junk food.  However many fast-food restaurants also offer not-so-junky choices.  Try to search their menus for salads (watch out for the dressings), fruit cups, baked potatoes, and grilled chicken options. Check out this nifty website, Fast Food Explorer, for calorie counts and nutrition labels for fast-foods.  You can also search for healthier choices within individual fast food restaurants. 
The Main Message: Whether you are ordering at McDonalds, browsing in the grocery store, or cooking in your kitchen, nutrition quality is what counts.
*About coconut milk.  Coconut milk is high in saturated fat, and is used in many desserts that could be considered “junk food.”  However coconut milk is also incorporated healthfully in many Southeast Asian cuisines.

If you have health or nutrition related questions, please comment or email me (  I'll try to crack the coconut for you!

The Pleasures of Cooking for One

The Pleasures of Cooking for One
by Judith Jones
published 2009

Judith Jones is the "legendary editor of some of the world's greatest cooks- including Julia Child and James Beard."  Her latest book is a combination of memoir and cookbook as she shares her solitary food adventures, culinary tips, and favorite recipes since the death of her husband in 1996.  Jones pairs her recipes with big glossy pictures.  Short food essays such as Ideas for Omlet FillingsAll About Cheese, and Ways of Using Up Milk intersprinkle the book with useful advice.  Best of all, Jones shows that cooking for one is not boring!  After every recipe she includes mini-recipes called "Second Round," "Third Round", or "Other Variations" where Jones shows how leftovers can be modified into new and different dishes.  

I, along with my salivary glands, am enjoying Jones' culinary narrative.  I formed my Christmas list after reading chapter 1, when I discovered her recommended essays of Essential Equipment When Cooking for One, and Indispensable Utensils.   Her Baked Polenta with Vegetables and Fillet of Fish in a Parchment are my future conquests.  I breath deeply as I read, for Jones' joy for cooking steams off the page.  She leaves me smiling and scheming while I write down my next grocery list.

Judith Jones says in the introduction, "An advantage of cooking for yourself is that you have only yourself to please.  So you can indulge on a sudden whim.  You can choose to make just what you feel like. [...] There's no need to be a perfectionist, or to win applause from your guests.  If a sauce curdles, you'll eat it anyways.  And you'll learn from your mistakes.  [...]  I wouldn't miss this pleasure for anything.  And I hope that the strategies and flexible recipes I offer here will encourage you to join in the fun."

Great book!

Kabocha Dippers, Japanese Pumpkin-Part 3

On Sunday my original plan was to make simmered kabocha and aburage .  But as I started to chop the second pumpkin, I realized that my roommate's pot was not going to be big enough (we are currently a one-pot household).  So I decided to bake the rest.

My baking inspiration comes from the summer of 2007, when I lived in Japan for 3 months.  During my brief stay, my overstimulated tastebuds were going crazy with the variety of new kabocha dishes.  But among the kabocha salads and kabocha tempura, I will always remember my first lunch when I arrived in Japan. I was surprised with a baked kabocha.  Look, I even saved the picture!

(Notice the kabocha slice at the top.)

Two years later I tried to mimic this.  But I had a difficult time cutting the kabocha into even slices, since I was using my roommate's 8 inch knife (we are currently a one-knife household).

Baked Kabocha Dippers-
Cut kabocha in half and take out the seeds. 
Slice into uniform strips, the thinner the better. 
Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350, and flip the slices halfway.  
When kabocha is tender, remove from oven and eat. 
It's sweet and starchy by itself, or dip in soy sauce for a salty zing!

Just Hungry's blog has a sweeter version too!  Sweet and Spicy Roasted Kabocha Squash.
This ends my 3-post ode to kabocha.  I hope you enjoyed my stories, learned something new, or gathered inspiration to eat this sweet green and orange pumpkin.  Happy Kabocha!

Stuff White People Like

This book does not focus on nutrition or health, but it does have plenty of comical food references!  At first Christian Lander's 150 observations about white people seemed outlandish and impertinent, until I found that I was often laughing at myself.  
Stuff White People Like: The Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions.
by Christian Lander
New York Times Bestseller, published 2008

My Top 5:
#45 Asian Fusion Food There is a long-standing belief that adding "Asian" to anything is an improvement.  The most popular things for white people to infuse with "Asian influence" are furniture, film, animation, interior design, personal style, children, and perhaps most important, food. [...]  These restaurants are the equivalent of a white guy with an Asian girlfriend and a Chinese or Japanese character tattoo that says "truth."
#46 The Sunday New York Times.  All white people are expected to read the Sunday Times.  You are given an exemption during your early college years, but by age 22 it is pretty much law.
#51 Living By the Water.  On the East Coast, many white people dream of owning oceanfront property in New England, where they can make their lives as close as possible to a J. Crew catalogue.
#64 Recycling.  Recycling is fantastic!  You can still buy all the stuff you like (bottled water, beer, organic ice tea, and cans of all varieties), and then when you're done you just put it in a different bin from your other garbage.  And boom! Environment saved!
#91 San Francisco.   [White people] like to live in San Francisco because of its abundance of nonprofit organizations, expensive sandwiches, and wine; its political outlook; and, most important, its diversity.  [...]  No matter how much you have offended someone from San Francisco, you can always make them feel better by asking how they feel about Southern California.  They will instantly talk of how it is filled with crime, pollution, hegemonic culture, and the wrong kind of white people: "I swear California is like two separate countries.  I am so thankful that I live in the cultural center of the West Coast."  This will allow them to reassert their superiority and leave the conversation with a positive feeling about themselves and about you.

Best of all, Lander's book ends with a "How White Are You?" test.  I scored 38, which means I'm basically 30% white.  : )

Simmered Sweetness, Japanese Pumpkin Part 2

My affection for this squash goes beyond its awesome vitamin A profile (see my first kabocha post).  I crave kabocha for its starchy sweetness.  And I agree with whoever declared kabocha as a tasty mix between sweet potato and pumpkin.
My mother and I share a particular love for simmered kabocha and aburage, which is fried tofu.  My mom tells me that this is a simple country dish, but it suites me!  I do not know the exact proportions for the seasoning, so I am citing the following recipe from The Legacy of the Japanese in Hawaii: Cuisine.  The Japanese Cultural Center for Hawaii sponsored this cookbook in 1989.  It might be out of print now, but I found it listed on amazon.  I highly recommend it, as it compiles traditional recipes with easy explanations, and adds interesting historical facts as well.

Kabocha no Fukumeni
Simmered Kabocha, page 150
Cut kabocha in half and remove seeds.  The skin is edible, but you can peel it off if you want.  Cut kabocha into large pieces.

In a pot, boil 2 cups water with:
1.5 teaspoon Hondashi soup stock
6 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon sake, rice wine (optional, I didn't have any today.)
Add kabocha and aburage.  Aburage, the fried tofu, soaks up the salty broth and complements the sweet kabocha.


Bring to a boil.  Then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until kabocha is cooked.  You may need to stir the kabocha for even cooking.  However vigorous stirring can break up the chunks.  I recommend using a 2-handled pot to "toss" the kabocha around.
Best eaten with rice.  Fresh hot rice!

Kabocha-cha! Japanese Pumpkin- Part 1

Halloween kicked off the pumpkin season. So as the fall turns into winter I'm celebrating with kabocha, my favorite Japanese pumpkin.  Stay tuned!  I am dedicating 3 blog posts to this wonderful winter squash. 
On Friday I had an insatiable craving for simmered kabocha.  (Sometimes my cravings lead to impulsive shopping trips- but I knew that I had free time to cook this weekend.)  I found these two lovely fellows at the C-market in Chinatown.  The kabochas looked discouragingly dirty in the store.  But a little soap and water revealed the beautiful green skin underneath.
According to Wikipedia (hehe), kabocha came to Japan from Cambodia in the 16th century.  It's original Japanese name of "Cambodia abobora" was shortened to "kabocha."  Hmm.
Kabocha has an stellar vitamin A profile.  How could we not love it?
One cup of kabocha has...
