Custom Food Bars and Cooking in the Airport

On Tynan

Twice a month I stray from my superlatively healthy diet and eat anything, no holds barred. A week or two ago I ate a couple slices of deep dish Chicago pizza with bacon and all sorts of nonsense on it. The idea behind this is that once in a while, usually while travelling, I find myself in a situation where eating healthy just isn't an option. Morocco was a place like that. Everything had butter in it. If I never voluntarily ate "dirty", I might feel sick when left with no other options. Also, the harm in eating normal food for two out of my 90 or so meals per month is negligible.

I try to use these cheat meals to try interesting foods or highly rated non-vegan restaurants, but the reality is that they often end up being meals at airports. I'll find myself on a three hour layover, starving, saying to my self, "Well... I guess I can have my cheat day now." One turkey sandwich later and I'm thinking, "There must be some solution to this problem."

After a bit of experimentation, I have found some pretty cool methods to have really healthy and delicious food anywhere I go.

A Few Stories from Japan

On Tynan

I've been in Japan for just over a week now. Todd and my Japanese teacher, Michiru, just left yesterday. My friend Brian is still here. Michiru took us to a bunch of places we'd never been before, and guided us through the murky Japanese-speaking waters. Todd took a lot of great photos (same camera setup as me -- NEX-5 with 50mm/1.1 lens). While the memories are still fresh in my mind, I'll share a few stories from the trip.
