I agree and it's one of my new year resolution to live healthy lifestyle. I don't mean to eat boring food, but I'm trying to eat small amount and healthier food. Japanese food is considered one of healthy food for low fat and simple ingredients, but I just eat way too much! I'm very inspired by this pork tenderloin (although I'm still thinking of your pasta dish while I type this haha). Soy sauce base with ginger, rosemary, garlic, honey... just fabulous. My family would love this!ReplyDelete
Nami, I love Japanese food. I am planning to try your sushi recipe that you posted on your blog once I get all the ingredients.ReplyDelete
