I love food remedy books. I am constantly amazed by what I find in these books. This morning I was thumbing through The Doctor’s Book of Food Remedies when I found the Asian Food Pyramid.
I should stop here and say that Asian (mainly chinese and japanese) food is one of my favorites and I am terrible at cooking it. One of my favorite books is Japanese Women Don’t Get Old or Fat by Naomi Moriyama and William Doyle. A great read!
O.k now back to the subject. The Asian food pyramid is different from the US pyramid in a couple of ways. Below are both the US and Asian food pyramid….I find it very interesting and I am curious how much healthier we would be in general if we watched not only our portions but the amount of hormone induced meat we consume.
