Eating healthy is not very easy while you are travelling. If you are conscious about healthy diet, here are some of my favorite restaurants that provide tasty dishes and at the same time healthy in many aspects using the best possible ingredients.

Peanuts Tofu (picture above) is particularly made in Okayama, you may not find it in any other places.

Yasai shokudou -Koyama-

The owner, Ms. Koyama suggests macrobiotic diet with Japanese cuisine.

"Take all the energy from grains and vegetables." she says.

Well, I definitely see all the answer in her smiling face, bright and sleek!

They use organic rice and natural water brought from a far north village of Okayama. 

I had a lunch from their set menus, and rediscovered how tasty the soy meat was !  

Lunch menu is from 1000 yen and dinner is from 1830 yen, it is very reasonable.

Quiet Village Curry Shop

My favorite is Dal curry, which is made in Vegan style, it contains lentils but no fat nor meat.

It's very tasty and impressive, besides there is no need to worry about heavy stomach afterwards.

The picture below is a plate of dal curry and chicken curry served by halves.

You can order in addition a spicy egg on spicy cury.

Only 12 seats in the restaurant, so there may be a queue during the lunch hours.

The picture below shows one of the menus for lunch, vegetables cooked with mini STAUB.

Mozzarella melts over cooked root vegetables, this set menu is "Okayama Vegetable Cocotte."

STAUB, this magical appliance makes the ingredience bring out the maximum flavor of each.


They also cook Cocotte with chiken, meat, and sweets.

To accompany with those menus of regional ingredience・・・you'd better try a glass of Japanese wine from over 60 kinds in their wine cellar.
