The Basic Elements of Japanese Food

Japanese Food

The standard Japanese food consists of a carbohydrate like rice or a noodle, a serving of miso soup, as well as a dish of pickled vegetables, and, optionally, a meat or a fish dish. The most common carbohydrate is rice, but many different types of noodles are available, including udon (thick noodles), soba (medium noodles), and ramen (thin noodles). These carbohydrates are all very inexpensive and form the main backbone of the dish. Additionally, fish dishes are very popular parts of meals, because Japan has a long history of fishing and eating different seafoods like many island nations. These seafoods can include many different species of sea creature, such as a huge number of types of fish as well as squid, octopus, shellfish like oysters and mussels, and even eels.

Sushi: A Health Solution From the East

Health Benefits of Sushi

The health benefits of sushi can be pretty amazing, thanks to the fact that it contains very healthy foods, such as pickled ginger, wasabi, rice, and nori seaweed. These foods all are well known to provide enormous health benefits to everybody. Ever since I started eating sushi in my life, I feel much better and healthier. My varicose veins have gone away, and I feel much more attractive and shiny. The word I most commonly use to describe my appearance these days is radiant, because I feel like I am bursting with energy and health from the sun thanks to the fact that I eat sushi at least 3 times a week. Every time after I have a meal of sushi, even if it is a very small meal by calorie standards, I feel completely filled and satisfied. I understand how the people in Japan stay so thin! The reason is that if they eat sushi at every meal, they are filled with nutritious phytol chemicals while eating very few calories, which is a proven method to lose weight and boost your health and well-being.

The health benefits of fish are also quite amazing, although I would stay away from fish if you do not live by a coast. You can still eat tofu sushi which I find quite healthful and fulfilling as well. In any case, fish is just about the healthiest type of meat that is out there, because it is low in harmful compounds and contains high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, which have a protective effect on your heart systems and promote the ability for your body to synthesize compounds that you need, such as your body’s natural hormones and prostaglandins.

My dear wife was having some serious issues with her joints. They were always cracking and popping and she was twisting and straining them very frequently as well as pulling muscles. I recommended that she start with me on the amazing sushi diet that I have been following, and ever since she joined with me in following this diet, she has felt much better and has been able to get in much better shape. We even went hiking a couple weekends ago, which is something we had not been able to do for three or four years. We both feel great now. Of course, we remembered to bring our sushi with us when we went hiking! We brought along a tasty little meal in a refrigerated pouch. I don’t know how that tiny amount of food did it, but it really powered us through a long day of hiking up and down hillsides. I really wish I had started eating sushi every day when I was younger, I am sure that I would be in better health now.


Japanese Sushi As A Boon To Great Health (part 1)

Sushi, A Gift from The Japanese

Prior to examining the true health attributes of sushi, it makes good sense to get a bit of historical context on the topic. The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that Japanese people enjoy the second lengthiest lifespan of any other nation, with men able to expect an average of 82 years, and women typically living to the age of 87.2 years. These figures represent a significant upward departure from average lifespans in the rest of the world, which fall at 68.5 years for men, 73.5 year for women. Japanese folks tend to have roughly five more years of life on an average basis than their American cohorts. Those in Japan are noted for having among the very lowest incidences of cardiovascular disease worldwide and one of the lowest incidences of obesity. The question is whether these statistics are the result of genetic luck or whether the composition of a typical Japanese diet plays a much more pivotal role.
