I'm not shy when it is time to eat fish and rice.
Oh boy, I hate to shop ! and I hate to shop groceries, but with one exception - Mitsuwa market, the Japanese grocery shop in Edgewater, 2.5 miles east of Union city. I can get lost in this place looking at everything and everybody. 98% of the shoppers are of Japanese origin and their shopping carts are full - and they are so thin - lean, I mean. So one day, I came back and googled the secret of being lean. And lo and behold -Fish, vegetables and rice is what they eat - 3 times a day or Is it 4? I gathered. Plus fresh fruit for dessert.Yoshiko, a Japanese women in my french class confirmed it. How disciplined! I embarked on my journey on this lean diet - and lost 5 lbs in a month. I am sticking to it , but a thought crossed my mind - what about the fish and mercury stories ? Don't they worry about this at all?
