Take note of the healthy habits of the countries listed. India figures in the healthy spices list.
I like the following points,
- Try one new type of fruit from your local market each week.
- "hara hachi bu," which in Japanese translates to "eight parts out of 10" and means stop eating when 80 percent full. (Very difficult for me ;)
- Skip the prepared food aisles at the market and choose fresh, whole foods.
