(Japanese: 和菓子) is a general term for traditional Japanese confectionery, especially the types made of mochi, red bean paste, and fruits that are served in the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Wagashi is typically made from all natural, plant based ingredients. The names used for wagashi commonly fit a formula—a natural beauty and a word from ancient literature.
I’m glad that mom was watching Jamie’s School Dinners on TV just earlier on. It caught my attention and I stayed for about 10 minutes (Well spent) watching it. I didn’t know that Chicken nuggets had contained so much salt, sugar and some *unwanted* substances in it, and given if it was the cheaply manufactured ones, they may even add in other chemicals to ‘cover’ the taste. I’m not going to touch chicken nuggets ever.
A chicken nugget is a piece of chicken, either whole or composed from a paste of finely minced meat or chicken skin, which is then coated in batter or breadcrumbs before being cooked.
I did a search on Jamie’s School Dinners and got to the site. It’s pretty interactive with a couple of nice links. I also found episodes 1 – 4 on Bittorrent. They can be found here . This means that I don’t have to stay up to 12am just to watch it :)
Jamie’s School Dinners’ about Jamie Oliver who busts a gut persuading schools to ditch the processed, ready-made junk the students are used to eating, and replace it with fresh, tasty, nutritious food, prepared from scratch every day. In other words, scrap Junk food and replace it with healthy, delicious food.
I hope I will learn alot from this TV documentary. I consume too much Junk Food :/
