Healing features of Japanese food you may have never known about before

Japan is one of the places where people live the longest lives. One of the main reasons Japanese people live long is that they eat specific food and pay much attention to the way they cook it. Let's find out more about the miracle food.

Hard to believe, but Japanese food, as we see it now, was invented due to the lack of supplies in Japan. The shortage of plants and animals made Japanese people appreciate their everyday food. You may notice that Japanese dishes are always aesthetically beautiful. They learnt to eat raw food as they didn't have enough fuel for cooking some time ago. Then they learnt to grow rice. 2500 years ago rice was everything for Japan: both food and money.

Most of the European people think that Japanese food is rolls and sushi only. In fact, there is quite a variety of it.

Traditionally, breakfast is the most nourishing, but healthy meal of the day: green tea, a cup of rice, miso soup, scrambled eggs and a slice of smoked salmon. Try to follow the pattern and you will surely feel great, at least until lunch time.

We want our readers to be happy, healthy and live long! The pleasant thing is that almost all of the above-mentioned food is available in most of supermarkets of the world. We believe that our article helped you to reconsider your daily ration from the point of view of its healthiness.

A lot of crap contained herein. Hi-carb diets lead to obesity and although it's not as big a problem in Japan as here, it's still eating too many carbs. Eating raw fish is risky and parasitism is a problem in Japan. Also, there's nothing wrong in eating saturated fats, albeit the Japanese palate does include many foods with these and you can't get serum cholesterol by consuming it directly. And, soy products are high in fat. These guys are over-selling a healthy life-style. Compared to the Korean, Chinese and SE Asian food, Japanese food averages out.

Carol L. Dooley, "Learnt" is a British variant of "learned". It is as acceptable as their spellings of "neighbour", "colour", and "flavour". Broaden your horizons. There was no mistake made in that spelling.
