JAPANESE BREAKFAST Traditional Recipe/ Eating Healthy/ Great grandma's (125years) Japanese food

Let me share the traditional Japanese breakfast recipe my great grandma was eating 100 year’s ago!
I grow up in Japanese family and my great grandma was living in next door. We often ate Japanese breakfast together. the Japanese breakfast she was eating is a lot different from what we enjoy in Japan nowadays.
It’s based on fish, seaweed and vegetables. as you can imagine, it’s way healthier than modernized Japanese breakfast on 2021!
I hope you will get some healthy eating inspirations!
Thank you very much for stopping by!

    What a shame we didn’t have a chance to see and get to know your grandmother. She sounds like a lovely person! She raised good people. Thank you for sharing this.

    Thank you so much,i learn a lot i make this for my japanes husbund.

  7. DodoBirdie on February 28, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    The Shiso leaves come from a plant related to mint. I would suggest mint as a decent replacement (though probably not the same). I also read that Thai Basil could work too.

  8. Finn Rasmussen on February 28, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    can you tell me what is torfu??

  9. RBM7 on February 28, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Hello 👋 just found your channel and I really enjoyed watching this wonderful breakfast, I love vegetables as well and am not that fond of meat or chicken so I will try find all the ingredients you have shown so I can also enjoy a new way of making breakfast 😃have a lovely day 🌹

  10. TheOleoStrut on February 28, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Is it practical to store washed rice? I love Japanese breakfasts, but committing 45 minutes to an hour for rice prep every morning got old fast. 😅

    I very much enjoyed this video. You are such a sweet soul and I love the stories of your great grandmother! I want to try Japanese cooking as a healthier way of eating, and hoping I can get some of these items from our Asian marketplace where I live. I can’t wait to try your recipes.

  18. Aakhil on February 28, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Did ur grandma have tofu in those days???

  19. Malaysia Barista on February 28, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Thumbs up. She can cook, proper way of using knife and all. Hate to see so many "cooking shows and channels" that the person don’t event know how to use a knife properly. We should have more people like this.

    This is awesome! Older Taiwanese also used to eat this way, I also learned to eat rice porridge in the morning. I usually do combinations of 香米, 芋香米, 糙米 or any brown rice, white rice, millet, wheat, and red&black rice, sometimes adding taro, pumpkin, sweet potato, water chestnuts, lotus root… this I’ve learned from old-fashioned Buddhist Taiwanese cooks. But my favourite is just plain fragrant brown rice, Taiwanese organic rice that smells like heaven! It feels so healthy and filling, especially in winter! I usually soak it in the rice cooker right before I sleep and turn it on as soon as I wake up, around 5, it cooks for 20 minutes or so then sits for an hour, and it’s so creamy, doesn’t feel like brown rice at all! Rice cooker is such a time saver! In summer it’s too hot, so I’ve switched to regular fluffy rice or other foods like avocado toast, but I’m looking forward to going back to my Japanese/Taiwanese staples. Thank you for the inspiration! I will try it!

    Excellent whole food plant based diet!!!! Skinny and healthy Asians consume rice as their staple food; however, due to brainwashing propaganda in the US placed rice, potatoes, and other amazing healthy carbs in “evil food” category…. That’s why so many unhealthy obese Americans follow low carb dead animal flesh diet…. sadly….
    Excellent recipe!!!! Go carbs, go vegan, be healthy! 🌱🌱🌱🙏👍🤗

    Thank you so much for sharing the memories you have of eating with your grandmother and the breakfast menu. The recipes seem simple, timeless and delicious. I can’t wait to try the turnip salad.

  34. Melissa Iwai on February 28, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    Such a wonderful story of your great grandmother! The food looks so good. My mother used to make me rice porridge when I was sick when I was a child. I never thought to eat it any other time!

  35. Sonja Jane on February 28, 2022 at 11:51 pm

  44. Lynx on March 1, 2022 at 12:00 am

    I also saw my great grandma. I used to have my lunch at my grandma’s house when i was an elementary student and she would make traditional Turkish food (mostly soups, pot dishes with lots of veggies and meat) and carry it to my grandma’s house like every 2-3 days. She died at 94 i think, on New Year’s Day, when i was 10. Watching this video made me miss her 🙂 and that breakfeast looks so good! I’m sure your great grandma is proud seeing you honouring her like this ^^

  45. amywjn on March 1, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Just found this channel. I love the idea 💡 behind it.

  46. Carmelo Santini on March 1, 2022 at 12:06 am

    Wow, traditional plant based japanese food! So glad I came across this channel, that breakfast looks so good! If you took out the sesame oil you would be whole food plant based it looks like! Do you ever eat Natto?

  47. Fern Webb on March 1, 2022 at 12:07 am

    I think simple knowing I am only cooking what I will eat in that meal. I was cooking huge amounts when I worked and would eat off of the food for days. I don’t seem to like left overs much anymore. Cooking Asian and Japanese style is not that hard. I chop and slice only what I need. Everything is delicious everyday. Also a lot of dishes in other parts of the world have more steps. Puree this, 7 spices with 8 ingredients. Cook that before this and then add that. I like the way you cook. I had veggie and tofu dumplings in a broth with mushrooms, green onion and garlic. Lots of dumplings uncooked are left. Will have some with egg tomorrow.

  48. Anon Anon on March 1, 2022 at 12:07 am

    Wonderful! Grandmothers ❤
    Really enjoyed seeing traditional Japanese food and house.
    Where to find black rice pot, white soup pot, and clay pot? Are there links?
    Very interested in traditional Japanese food as it is healthy and also pretty. 💐

  49. NRG Ltwrkr on March 1, 2022 at 12:10 am

    I used mint and I have also used grape leaves to replace shiso.

  50. S G on March 1, 2022 at 12:13 am

    I’ve been trying to learn more about plant-based Asian food and your channel has been so helpful and lovely. Thank you (:
