Ma Go Wa Ya Sa Shi I is a mnemonic device to remember healthy ingredients within Washoku to turn Washoku into the Japanese Blue Zones’ Diet. It is rich in dietary fiber and good for your gut.
The Ikigai Diet is a diet and a lifestyle I composed based on Shizenha people’s lifestyle. I also modeled the lifestyle of centenarians in Japan’s long-lived areas such as Shiga and Nagano. I also studied the elements of Washoku, including the Zen Shojin diet and practices in the Japanese natural food movement.
Japan is considered to be the country with the highest life expectancy and it has a lot to do with our diet, Washoku. And when we talk about Washoku, it is usually about the exoteric side of Washoku, but there is an esoteric side to it, and without knowing about it, you are missing a significant portion of Japanese wellness.
