There are many things good about the Japanese way of meal prepping and cooking. Like the diminutive portions which allows you to eat a variety of healthy dishes without overeating. Or the way they prepare a wide number of side dishes ahead of time which allows you to whip out multi course meals like a wannabe Masterchef. But the one truly bad thing about Japanese cooking is dish washing. There is a gargantuan load of dishes to do every meal. And I'm cooking only for one. Can you imagine the dishes a family of say, 4, will have to do??!!! Because everything is served up in small individual plates or bowls, I typically have at least 12-20 things to wash each meal. And because I'm slightly obsessive compulsive, I take a long time at dish washing, making sure there is no sign of greasiness or soapiness left. I'm blinking exhausted after that. I need to put up my feet and treat myself to a miniature square of baklava and some fruit, washed down with a cuppa peppermint hazelnut cinnamon mocha. I like the healthiness and variety of Japanese cuisine but I gotta find a way to reduce the amount of dish washing required!
