I was going to ignore your comments, but frankly they upset me, @robert. Out of the thousands of meals that have been posted on Food Talk Central, I don't understand why you feel the need to single out my nabe as an example of a "nutritionally unbalanced" meal and take some kind of patronizing tone. There's plenty of protein in the tofu, a nice variety of vegetables, and lots of nutrients from the miso in the nabe broth. My carbs came from a bowl of rice as well as the carrots and daikon in the hot pot.
My parents are Japanese, and nabe is traditionally eaten during the winter, as it's healthy, filling, and warming. If my parents had made this dish, there would be a very small amount of thinly-sliced meat in the hot pot.
My intention was simply to share a photo of what I was cooking that day. I was not expecting a critique of the soundness of my nutritional choices.
