Chinese Dietary ‘Secrets’

As The Inde­pend­ent points out, Chinese food has a bad repu­ta­tion in the UK. But under­stood and pre­pared prop­erly, it is healthy, ful­filling, and one of my favour­ite types of cuisine. These Chinese diet­ary ‘secrets’ have reju­ven­ated my fer­vour for East­ern cook­ing.

Stop count­ing cal­or­ies
Think of veget­ables as dishes
Fill up on staple foods
Eat until you are full
Take liquid food
Bring yin and yang into your kit­chen
Raw power? not neces­sar­ily
Use food to keep fit
Drink green tea
Take res­tor­at­ive exer­cise
