About
Since 1998 I have been vegetarian, lived and worked in England for 10 years

I speak English(British English) fluent, and Spanish.
I studied Spanish in Salamanca , Spain then also in England by native Spanish teacher.
Of course I speak Japanese :) but except my work in Japan, I use English or Spanish mainly.

I am nurse also I am dietitian...mainly working for cancer patients.
When I studied Nutrition and also many subjects related madicine, A & P, etc for my profession, they said, " We need protein especially essential amino-acids. etc etc etc....."
Yes, I do understand the theory but in fact, even I didn't eat any meat or fish at all for 10 years, I never got any health problem, no anaemia.
Since I started working in Japan (since 2008),I have had more Tofu or soya products because it is much easier and nicer than having them in England,also easy to get more fresh different veggetable (because of the climate is different from England).
The other hand, I have had "less" cheese now.. because here in Japan, it is very hard to get "cheese without renet"..and even just cheese, but they are expensive.So I don't bother eating cheese,those simple reason :p

The first reason to become vegetarian was, I bought a vegetarian cooking book because I love cooking.
Then they were so delicious... they really opened my eyes !
That was the start.
Then also in England in 1999, as you know, Foot & Mouth ...every single day, tons of millions of cow, sheep...were killed because of it...Everyday they were on TV news.. It was so sad..Then my friend( vegetarian) said to me "IF no one ate meat, they didn't have to be killed"..
I have been already vegetarian at that time but her word made my mind stronger to keep vegetarian diet.
The Place I lived was very rural area, many field and just 10 mins walking away from home, there are huge fiedl ,,, cow, sheep, horses... always they were there..look so peaceful.. and I loved them.. But one day, almost all of them suddenly disappeared..because of the Foot and mouth..The field was empty...I cried , cried and cried....

Everyone has their own thoughts and also different situation what they eat.I am not going to force people to become vegetarian, but I can tell them , being vegetarian is no problem for the health...also the animals have the "life" which is very precious..

Hi, Yuki. I´m very interrested in Japan, always thinkin´ it must be hard for a vegetarian, but then I read one of your discussion & it changed my mind, It´s not impossible to live as a vegetarian in Japan, Indeed, there so many kinds of vegetables & tofu, soy-products and a lot more. Thnx for open my eyes. :)

Here in Japan, especially the region where I live, the climate is quite mild so that we can get many vegetables and fruit. Also Japanese climate has 4 seasons clearly so that we can have each season's vegetables and fruits.
There are lots of different type of Miso,as well :)

Going out to eat in Japan, it might be a bit tough for vegetarian but not necessary to have "typical japanese meal", I mean, there are many Italian restaurant (for example), then you can have aglio olio e peperoncino , it is just garlic, olive and chili ;) but it is nice !

I am going to try to introduce some recipe using tofu or miso for vegan, not only Japanese recipe but also we can arrange those ingredient to many recipe and also some Korean and Chinese recipe , too :)
