We don’t use a spatula. I like to use my finger to spread them. I like to put the bars in a bowl and spread them out a little bit.
What’s a traditional Japanese breakfast, and how did you prepare it?
That’s a good question. I never really made breakfast in school, so I never felt the need. I never even thought about making it. I just ate it when I can, right before I go to sleep. I’m not a big eater, but I can eat a lot of bread and eggs and sometimes toast. Breakfast is one of my favorite things.
How much of the meal does soy sauce have to do with Japanese style?
Soy sauce is absolutely a key component of Japanese cooking. But there are so many ingredients in this meal that you’ve just had a bowl of soup. We’ve been eating in restaurants that don’t serve it, so we’re not in a position to be able to eat our rice and vegetables until the next day.
What should I be doing on my lunch break?
Oh, I think you should just sit at the table and try to relax. If you try to exercise in our society like you do if you’re a Japanese person, there will be some stress in your body to deal with. If you’re a woman, there will be a lot of stress. If you’re a man, it’s a lot more relaxed. If you can do a little bit of both, you’ll see that your body is really happy with the energy you have.
What do you eat on the weekend? Why is the weekend such a huge focus for you?
It’s so much fun to eat. We have some fun, relaxing, weekend things to do. We don’t like to do anything too demanding, especially when we’re young. That’s where we start to be too demanding. When we’re going through our periods (and the men have it worse than us girls), they’re always doing things that we like. We’re always playing sports without them realizing. We don’t see that too often. At 16, we were playing football on the weekends after school. But now we’re like, “Don’t do that anymore!” So we started to look at things for ourselves. We’re all about being in the moment and making the most out of what we have.
