Hi hi! I'm knitticism, and I've been interested in Japanese culture my whole life. I'm currently a college student, so my meals are taken care of there, but the semester's almost over, and I think bento would be a fun way to bring my lunches to work. I have to watch what I put in my bento though. I recently caught swine flu, and the virus settled in my heart, causing myocarditis (a swelling of the heart muscle). As I (hopefully) heal up from that, I need to be on a low sodium diet- around 2,000 mg a day or less. While I was in the hospital with that, the accidentally discovered I have limited scleroderma. It's not causing any health issues right now, but it could in the future. From what I have read on this website, I can easily modify the recipes and adjust them to fit my nutritional needs. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and finding new foods to try! ^.^

Re: Hi Peoples!!

The bentos are really helping me keep my sodium down, and the doctor said I am getting better. I got your book Maki, and virtually all the recipes are doable for me. I love it!
