Asian food is normally light on your stomach. You will notice that they consume less calories than other types of food out there. This is partly because they are typically low in fat content, but also because they don’t overwork your digestive system like heavy American food. They usually rely on light carbohydrates such as rice and noodles, and less protein such as fish or chicken. It s mostly because of the traditional addition of rice and noodles that westerners tend to perceive Asian food as being unhealthy.
One good example of a light piece of Asian food is a soba dish, which means small bowl of rice. Another one is fortune cookies, which is an Asian sweet treat made of sugar cookie dough filled with glossy white chocolate. Both of these can usually be eaten without any cooking at all.
But you should avoid Asian food preparations with heavy sauces, as they tend to be very rich in calorie content. As you try more recipes and cooking styles, you will realize that there are many great tasting alternatives for the typical Asian food that you’ve been used to. In addition, you will also come across many more interesting dishes, such as Indian and continental Indian food, sushi, bbq chicken and seafood, stir-fry, stir-fried vegetables, fruit-based dishes and desserts. And it doesn’t matter if you are trying a lot of new foods or sticking to the tried and tested ones, because every single one of them are easy to prepare and very healthy. It is because of this that you can have an entire week with no food preparation and still feel full.
