Haiku Poem – 私の食事

a simple breakfast
no time for lunch today
special dinner time

(Jim Woodhull)
やさい のむ あさ の しゅうかん ふとらない

のみやすい ごはん いらない エネルギー

Since I work on a boat every day, my eating schedule is a little different from the average person. I usually have a smoothie for breakfast. The smoothie has a lot of different fruits and vegetables in it and is very filling. Because the ocean conditions are not always smooth I don’t want to have eaten a big breakfast before going on a possible bouncy boat. In the afternoon I rarely have a lunch. The most I may eat is a sandwich. Usually all I have is some peanuts or another very light snack. I have found that when it is even mildly rough I don’t really have much of an appetite. At home for dinner my wife and I often have something fairly light since we often eat fairly late. Typically it is soba or udon. We go out to eat maybe once a week and the majority of the time we go to a sushi restaurant. My favorite food is fish so that is when I get to splurge and have a bigger meal. Although I don’t eat a lot I do try to be careful in what I eat. I am very lucky in that I weigh exactly what I weighed in high school!
