Tabemono Time: Meal Planning & Jar Salads

Scrambling for some quick and healthy meal ideas? Look no further! Abigail Clark from the Toyama Tram has you covered. Read on to learn how to make your very own jar salads.

Broccoli Crust Pizza

If you are anything like me, the winter months you've spent in hibernation have not only bestowed upon you a healthy plumpness, but also a strong addiction to unhealthy foods which have helped you cope with Japan's harshest season and the dreaded "STAGE-2" feels. To help wean myself off my glutinous rituals I've found making healthy substitutes to be the best bet. This way I can have my broccoli and eat pizza too!

Saijo Sake Fest: The Best AND The Rest

This is a journey that I like to call, “journey to the sake festival.” It sounds generic and kind of like something you would name a photo album on Facebook, I know, but it really does sum up this story pretty well.

Humble Beef Stew

The recent stormy weather makes me feel that autumn is definitely approaching. This is the sort of weather that inspires you to stay indoors, curl up with a good book or movie, and just relax. It also makes me crave a pot of stew, something hearty, rich, and filling – comfort food, in short. So, if the weather keeps you inside, or you simply feel the urge for something tasty at home, give this recipe a try.

This Bread is Bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Bananas, gotta love ‘em. They are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. They are a healthy, no-fuss snack. They are the only affordably priced fruit in all of Japan. Even when left on your counter a few days too long and they’ve turned black, kind of squishy, looking sad and a little less than appetizing—they are actually in the perfect state to make some bangin’ banana bread!

Recipe: Kakigohan

Take advantage of the bounty from the Inland Sea with this simple recipe for kakigohan, or rice with oysters.

Cold Canned Coffee

From jelly drinks to yogurt drinks to video game themed "potion drinks", there's something you're bound to enjoy!

August, one of Japan’s hottest months, has just arrived. Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy a refreshing drink in this heat? Why not try something Japanese, like umeshu?
