This is what happened when the wrong restaurant gets booked and you are vegetarian, you eat vegetables. We ended up at our friends private restaurant in Tokyo faced with a huge T-bone steak. And yes it was a week of eating meat something I do infrequently since digesting beef in general gets more difficult year by year.
For many middle aged men there is enough evidence of the impact of saturated fat intake on cardiovascular disease. We grow up believing all-beef is unhealthy and contrary to popular belief in Japan their wagyu has a significant level of unsaturated fat. In fact, almost 60% of the fat found in Japanese beef is unsaturated, the type of fat to focus on when striving for a healthy diet – Oleic acid comprising of 80%+ which ranks it as healthy – go figure.
