While traveling the world might not be at the top of your to-do list right now that shouldn’t stop you from tasting the flavors of these places. So this week let’s head to Asia, shall we? We have some amazing products on our shelves to get your taste buds coming alive. So let’s talk about the differences between what our current recommendations are versus theirs.

Where the US transitioned to a plate method Asain cultures use the pyramid (and a range of generalized amounts) with grains/legumes/cereal at the base followed by fruits and vegetables then protein then milk and finally salt and oil. So while grains are the largest part of the diet, so much remains the same like:

  • Take time to enjoy eating your meal
  • Limit foods that have a high sodium content
  • Limit added sugars
  • Drink plenty of water (their recommendations is 1500-1700 ml)
  • Be physically active (at least 6,000 steps per day)
