Britterny's Journey: A Full-Time Working Mom's Transformation with Japanese Cooking

Before Joining Ikigai Cooking Clubs

"I struggled with inconsistent meals, flavor fears, and a cycle of food waste. My meals alternated between unhealthy indulgences and tasteless health foods, making me nauseous at the mere thought of certain ingredients. I craved balance, and a sense of culinary direction. Discovering Miwa's YouTube channel was my first step towards a cooking transformation."

After: The Transformation 

Embrace of Authentic Japanese Cooking:

"Miwa introduced me to the true essence of Japanese cuisine. I no longer just cook; I create art. From the variety in dishes, like delightful bentos, to the pure aesthetic pleasure each meal provides."

Enhanced Nutritional Balance:

"My meals now offer a harmonious balance of nutrition. Being a parent, I've developed immense respect for delicious food that's also wholesome."

Newfound Love for Ingredients:

"Japanese cuisine opened my palate to ingredients I hadn’t appreciated before. Shiso leaves have now become an essential in my kitchen, inspiring me even to try growing plants of my own."

Emotional and Physical Well-being:

"There's an indescribable peace I feel with every meal now. My body is nurtured, and my soul is content. I'm immensely grateful for the positive shift this community has brought into my life."
