When I turn on my television it is very hard to miss health advice that is entertaining and entertaining to the point of being educational. While indeed health can be entertaining to some it can also be informative and help you to better health and well being. While there is a definite health benefit to eating organic foods there is also a dark side to them that is a mixture of both chemical and naturally occurring compounds. While these compounds may be dangerous to human health and the health of the planet they were formed from, many find them quite enjoyable and even quite addictive. While these compounds may be the building blocks of many wonderful compounds they also form the basis of some extremely strong alcoholic beverages.
China is the world’s largest producer of rice and is known for its rice wine. Although beer is generally renowned for its use of malt, China also produces malt which is primarily used in the making of whiskey and vodka. Mash is also used in the making of bread and cakes.
India is another producer of rice that is widely consumed in the world. Like many countries, India produces both rice and ghee and is also known for its tea and coffee beverages. Tea is drunk throughout the day here and is mostly consumed as a hot drink. Most tea drinkers prefer black tea but brown tea is also quite popular.
Other than India there are many rice-eating countries throughout the world. There are many individuals that choose to only eat rice and cook little else. While rice can be eaten alone it is also frequently eaten with other foods. One of the most popular ways to enjoy rice is through rice dishes, which are the main staple all over Asia. Rice is actually a very important part of the Asian diet. They eat rice in practically every meal. Baby rice is extremely important and is a very important meal. It is commonly used to make the curry dishes known as curries. Meat and fish are cooked with rice. These are usually served with different sauces and takeaways are often made from rice. A meal of rice and meat is known as adi-mang which is traditionally eaten on the New Year or Festival days.
Some cultures do not eat meat at all while some people actually eat only fish or chicken. Chicken and fish are quite popular and eaten regularly. Very few meat recipes are passed down and each culture seems to have its own unique way of cooking the meat.
Fish and shellfish are popular ingredients and can be found in all the major Asian markets. Not only that but they are fairly inexpensive and easily available throughout the year. China is known for its fish while Thailand is known for its good quality shellfish.
While rice is the staple grain in many Asian cultures, they also use many other grains including wheat, maize, sorghum, maize, and hybrid seeds just to name a few. These different foods are all important in the Asian diet. Each family has its own dialect which is quite similar to the other and at times difficult to understand. Nonetheless, rice is served everywhere and choices of rice-based foods are quite diverse.
While rice is quite popular in Asia and its influence is reflected in all the major Asian languages, many people do not consume rice as a staple food. Western diets tend to be very rich, heavy, and filling which is reflected in the mainly meat-laden meals that are consumed. Sometimes, rice is added to the main meal, but not always, and pork and fish are also common additions.
