After “can you please send me a love pillow?”, the second most frequent question I hear from people back home is “what do you eat over there?” Because answering “rice” becomes quite boring (and leaves little need for a blog update), I have decided to attempt to visually capture every single thing I eat, a project I’ve affectionately dubbed “What’s In Your Bento?”. How long will this last? The goal: 1 year. The reality: I’d be happy with a month.
There is a secondary reason behind this endeavor. By setting a rule that I have to photograph everything I eat, I’m hoping one of two things occurs:
1. I become more cognisant of the amount and quality of things I am eating and therefore change my habits to becoming more healthy.
2. I become too lazy to find the camera and/or upload the picture and decide to simply eat less.
Either will have a welcome effect on “the pear”.
