We have held The World’s Mother Salon’s exchange lunch meeting on March 6, 2016.There were 20 people attended to the exchange lunch meeting including WMS staff in Japan and outside of Japan, moms’ writers, people who were interested in WMS and their children.
The theme of the World’s Mother Salon in this year is “Food”. The venue was Chaya Macrobiotics which proposes “Organic life to make yourself beautiful by eating” and they provide menus which are divided into 4 categories such as “Macrobiotic”, “Gluten-free”, “Seafood” and “Vegetables”.
Many topics were discussed while we were checking the menu, for instance “Is gluten related to wheat and barley?”, “Super Fruit Tomatoes sound very delicious!”, “It is not easy to take protein in Mozambique but there is great protein, soy is available in Japan which helps to broaden dietary habits” and each of attendees selected what they would like to eat and enjoyed dishes which are earth friendly and good for our health.
(WMS staff felt that having great ingredients of our own choice adds nutrients to our hearts)
Children enjoyed playing together and adults enjoyed listening to lifestyles in unknown places outside of Japan. (*^_^*)
During the lunch meeting, “Veggie Monday” was mentioned. Do you know about it?
Since the United Nation’s proposal in 2008, the activity that encourages you to adopt a plant-based diet for one day a week which has been spreading the worldwide such as UK and USA and Canada.
If plant-based diet for one day a week is adopted by 1 person, it is equivalent to the amount of CO2 saved for 1700km worth of travel by a car in one year!It tells that production of livestock consumes that much water and grains.

There are wide variety of choices available in our lifestyles today.
A little idea can make things earth friendly and good for our health.
I feel that it may bring huge impact if each of us enhance awareness of eco when we shop, cook and in other occasions.
I encourage all of you to come up with a little idea to make things earth friendly and good for our health and try it in your daily lives!
The World’s Mother Salon will continue to tell pleasure of “knowing” and “choosing” in variety of fields through our website and events.
Next exchange lunch meeting will be held in June. Look out for it!
