I know tiny
things can change everyday life better for you and the
environment. Very easy and small things, but they work!
A year is made of many days, and the day is made of
many hours! So just change a little tiny things, and
your life will get better! Just carry on, and you will
find it soon!
By the way, hummus can change your life better, too.
It's because hummus can be replace for meat which has
rich protein human needs. Beans are more economical
to cultivate than meat. It is invisible, but it is a
fact. Beans, called meat of farms, are healthy and delicious!
If you keep eating healthy and good food, your body
and your mind will be fine too!
Remind you of the most important thing, enjoy it! Don't
take it so seriouos. You can do little by little. You'll
find good ideas. Let's think of eco life together, and
share it all!
The world is really beautiful? Or rarely?
I love Ito
En, one of the biggest beverage companies in Japan.
Why? Because they have good products. They have natural
stuff. Now in Japan, many people have started to care
about thier health, but I think it too much. They say,
"Vitamin" or "Katekin" etc, but
I doubt if old people did care about those. The old
knew what kind of food were good for health. They could
tell from their instinct, maybe by smell, taste, visual...
They were more sensitive in a good way.
In general, people believe results of scientific reserch
easily, but I think that itself can be wrong. I think
the problem is our lifestyle such as diet or too much
stress or neglect of exercise, not lack of knowledge
of scientific or chemical terms. If you believe you
must be healthy just because you take supplement, it
might be better to rethink of your lifestyle. Ito en
always produce natural, conservative, traditional, and
simple beverage. That's why I like their products.
One of my recommendation is Jasmine Tea. Smells good!
Milk Tea is also good. Most milk tea is too sweet, but
Ito en's one is perfect.
Actually, I don't often buy beverage.I don't wanna
increase wastes, cans or bottles. I make teas or drink
at home, and carry it in my bottle. I emailed Itoen
customer service the otherday, and I asked if they are
planning to sell only content, not with bottles or cans,
but they said, "No". Oh, well, that's fine.
I can just make by myself. That's more fun and cheaper
Smells good! Looks nice!
I don't really
need plastic bags for shopping. Of course, I need one
if I have no bags, but I realized I didn't need it.
Everytime I say "No bag." at cashers, they
say, "Appreciate it.(Polite "Thank you"Or
"Sorry" in Japanese. Sorry can be thank you
in Japanese.)" I always feel, "Oh, that's
not a big deal. Just a little thing, so you don't need
to be so polite to me".(I know they say as a greeting
though.) But I feel better when I do that! I feel better
when they just say,"Thank you for shopping!"
When you refuse bags, cashers can deal with cheking
more quickly, no wastes, no trash...good! That's why
they say, "Appreciate it!"??
Let's have your own ECO bag! It doesn't have to be "Kinokuniya",
one of richest grocery stores, like "Whole Foods"
in the US. You can use a plastic bag for the eco bag!
I have mine, a cotton bag from Cafe Eight, a vegan restaurant
where I had been working for before just because I loved
their hummus!! (Not kidding). I will use it forever
because I love it!
Why do we need plastic
I used to
love nail painting, but not now because I realized my
nails couldn't breath! In addition, people could eat
nail polishes eating food which I cook with polished
nails(disgusting!) I don't wanna make people sick. In
fact, any chelves have clean hands. I just realized
thier hands are more beautiful than hands with nailpolishes.
That's why I stopped nail painting.
Although I don't do nail art any more, I still sometimes
think nail painting is cute. I don't really like too
much painting with too long nails, but I think clear
or gradation colors are beautiful. I also liked nail
art because that was a kind of creation!
Then, how can I enjoy the creation while I wanna keep
hands clean like a chelf? I came up with body painting!
Body painting won't ruin food when I cook, and I can
enjoy painting, and it will look cool, too! A body is
much bigger than a nail, which is one of the advantafe,
One thing that I wanna think at first, is why people
wanna decorate themselves with makeup, pierce, tatoo,
and so on. I heard people did so in order to show they
are healthy enough to give birth to children. (Piercing
hurts a skin, so people with pierces must be strong
against germs, like that.) Most people just do makeup,
nail art, piercing, and tatoo without any special reasons,
but our instinct has the reason! With the knowledge
I wanna enjoy body painting. I have already known what
to do for me...just show I am healthy, and my instinct
will be satisfied! I don't really have to hurt myself
to feel cool!
Express yourself freely!!
spring is a good chance for gardening! Last year, I
tried to raise Edamame at my plce, but I didn't sow
that much, and I could get small quantity...like an
apetizer at a bar.
I raised herbs before. Bazil was eaten by a cawl...poor.
Apple mint was very easy! But I had no idea how to cook.
All I did was just smelling...so bad(ha ha ha)
But this time is different! I sowed a lot of seeds of
Edamame. I hope I can get more than last year.
Let's try private vegetable gardening! You can get
soils and seeds at stores or farmers if you know somebody.
Farmers will support you because they love cultivating!
Let's enjoy gardening together!
Thank for the Sun! Source
