In Japan, it is said that we should take 30 different ingredients a day. Let’s see how many I managed to pack in our daughter’s bento in a week.
31/Oct – 10.
Minced chicken, sweet potato, egg, cherry tomato, broccoli, rice, rice sprinkle (mainly seaweed), sesame, apple, mikan mandarin
1/Nov – 11.
Salmon, sesame, rice, rice sprinkle (mainly Shiso leaf), egg, broccoli, cucumber, bonito flake, sweet potato, minced chicken, Nashi pear
Nov 2 – 11.
Pork, cabbage, sesame, miso paste, rice, egg, spinach, cucumber, bonito flake, cherry tomato, apple
Nov 5 – 11.
Pumpkin, egg, broccoli, chicken filet, green beans, sesame, rice, spinach, Shirasu baby sardine, rice, goma-kombu, apple
Nov 6 – 8.
Sword fish, egg, tofu, aonori (powdered seaweed), carrot, broccoli, rice, apple
Nov 8 – 8.
Salmon, egg, sweet potato, cucumber, broccoli, rice, Nashi pear, Persimmon
Average of 9.8 ingredients a day. We usually eat bread & cheese & fruit for breakfast, so this means I’d have to make dinner with around 15 more ingredients. How would that be possible…?
Do saLt, sugar, pepper, garLic, and onion count as ingredients? 😂
I didn’t include the seasoning, but I’d count onion & garlic!
