Living in Japan has afforded me the rare opportunity to regularly eat
kyūshoku, which is the school lunch program. It is eaten by a majority of elementary and junior high students and is carefully planned by the school's nutritionist. Every day I take a picture and translate the menu into English to find out exactly what I'm eating...Itadakimasu!

The noodles are topped with vegetables (carrots, bean sprouts, etc.) and the sauce, all of which are very cold (I used my chopsticks to pick out the ice). There is also a spring roll and frozen mandarin orange...
