Rice and salmon wrapped in seaweed

I haven't been able to write for a bit longer than I would have liked but it was one hectic week. To top it all off I stayed up late on Wednesday to watch the Euro 2008 semi-final game between Turkey and Germany (which Germany won 3-2). It was a slow week too with not a lot to report - well not a lot with me being able to capture a picture of but once again it's Friday, and I am enjoying every second of it :)

Well today I wanted to post pictures of a snack that has saved me from many a skipped lunch. This particular one consists of rice with salmon in the center and a sheet of seaweed to wrap it in. The nice thing is they are made fresh (daily), very cheap (less than 200 yen), and come in a lot of varieties (in terms of content and shape). If you ever find yourself in a convenience store like 7/11 or FamilyMart, give it a try! Oh and a quick note, Salmon is cooked but some varieties are not so... be careful if you aren't into uncooked fish.

Ah, I've seen those before but never tried them because there are so many other yummy foods to have in Japan. ;) One of the things I adore a lot about Japan is the numerous choices of fast (cheap) healthy food. It's such a contrast to US where fast food means deep-fried or greasy hamburger. I feel sad seeing the line-ups of obese poor people eating KFC daily for dinner. If US has cheap healthy fast food, the obesity problem may be much less severe.
