American’s today have been assaulted worldwide on their food choices and how it is affecting their overall health. Asian cuisine has added a new spark to our demanding palates. The exotic spices of ginger, lemongrass, and curry fill not only the void our taste buds have long waited to fill but invigorate our sense of smell, creeping into every crevice of our olfactory system.
Dishes from the east are also good for our health. Research has shown that turmeric, that spice responsible for the bright coloring, improves sugar levels, prevents intestinal problems and also helps decrease body fat as it helps increase muscle mass. What Asian dish has not included a form of pepper? Pepper has been found to provide energy and help in weight loss by speeding the breakdown of fat cells. Cinnamon has long been used for its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, but did you know it can help lower cholesterol and level out your triglycerides and blood sugar. Cumin is good for your digestive system. The list can go on and on and we haven’t even gotten into the vitamin rich vegetables. Asian cuisine is a good way to incorporate flavor and health into your everyday life.
