I am drawn to your blog for a few reasons. First, you tell a great story. Your writing is easy to read, a healthy mix of humor, sensitivity, and description, and I feel like I'm there in the kitchen with you. This is combined with my second reason - your photography is fantastic and goes hand in hand with your words. Third, I love Japanese culture and miss Japan, so seeing certain things here and there relating to Japanese culture is fun to be a part of (see reason #1). And finally, your intent of the blog - treating yourself and the planet with respect - is something I can relate to. - John
"Thank you for putting so much time and energy into your blog and thank you for being you and being honest. Every time I read a new post it brings me joy, not only because your writing is excellent, but also because it destroys my feelings of isolation in the world of food/lifestyles and making life changes. Big up to you! Also, I randomly met a friend of a friend this past weekend with similar diet issues and she was absolutely thrilled to hear about some of your recipes and your blog,"
