In a box below the article is a link to "6 Reasons To Drink Wine". As if you need more than one!

The greeks didn't invent yogurt. The turkish name should be your first tipoff.

I do my best to eat healthy food, but they can keep the kimchi.
 
2006-03-26 02:48:58 PM  
Silly, submitter. Man cannot live on kimchi alone.
 
2006-03-26 02:49:19 PM  
Man, if you combined all five of those foods in one meal you would explode!

I have a bottle of unfiltered olive oil from Andalucia, and it is one of the tastiest things in the world, in addition to being good for you.

I'd rather die young than live on kimchi.

Where is the Whopper? or the Big Mac...

Bah! Worthless article!
 
2006-03-26 02:56:17 PM  
I wish bacon was on that list.

ZAZ: I'd rather die young than live on kimchi.

have you actually had it? (not being accusatory, just curious)

I've tried it, storebought mind you, so not high quality i'm sure. I liked it, personally.

and why am i not surprised to see olive oil?

I have been within odor range of it. I'm not letting it in my mouth.

fair enough.

Now that's the makings of a tasty meal.

KIMCHI RULES!

I tried it. They can keep it. ;) I'll try most anything once. Not everything, just most -- can't tell if you like it or not unless you try it.

Korea: Kimchi
Loaded with key vitamins, kimchi contains healthy bacteria that aids digestion.


I tend to doubt anything from Korea contains only healthy bacteria...
 
2006-03-26 06:09:00 PM  
Yes, but here I can get all 5 of those at one store.

Most Kimchi in Korea is imported from China.
Koreans use human poop as fertilizer.

Yea, like noone in America eats olive oil, yogurt, or soy...
 
2006-03-26 06:29:02 PM  
Link is farked. :(
 
2006-03-26 06:30:52 PM  
List is incomplete without haggis!!
 
2006-03-26 06:31:34 PM  
Many of your favorite global ingredients just happen to have great health benefits. So it is really no suprise there wasn't any american ingredients listed as the list was focusing on global ingredients.

There's a shiatload of soy grown in the United States.
 
2006-03-26 06:35:58 PM  
No, there are no health nuts or vegetarians in America. No fanatic gym goers or power walkers or anything nutty like that. America is populated solely by whopper-eating warmongering cowboys.

I eat tons of four out of five of those (lentils are a pain to cook if they need soaking overnight).
Fortunately, I balance it out with plenty of red meat and alcohol.

I thought yoghurt was Bulgarian?
 
2006-03-26 06:37:55 PM  
Yogurt has been around for a few millenia, most likely from the middle east, though possibly north africa. Also the thick spoonable form is much more recent than the more liquid form.

/would recommend durian, world's most foul smelling fruit
//delicious despite the horid smell

Kimchi- Man's healthiest food. And it goes well with man's best friend.
 
2006-03-26 06:44:45 PM  
Apparently I was wrong. I thought olive oil came from Italy. I'm not so sure it is a food item as it is an ingredient in most dishes. But hey, if the internet said it, it must be true.
 
2006-03-26 06:46:26 PM  
The list just reported in Men's Fitness is MUCH better (though the link provided by elchip is really interesting).

Their method was to poll nutritionists, professors, etc. and ask for the healthiest foods.

Here are their top 20... (also note that the jury is still out on soy and some women's risk of breast cancer)

20. Turkey breast; 19. olive oil (BUT IT CONTAINS FAT... sadly the whole "avoid fat" stuff came about because people didn't think Americans were smart enough to differentiate types of fats on labels); 18. quinoa; 17. black beans; 16. green tea; 15. eggs; 14. milk; 13. water; 12. sweet potatoes; 11. soy; 10. beef; 9. whole wheat bread (check labels for high-fructose corn syrup (crap) and partially hydrogenated oils (trans-crap)); 8. almonds; 7. yogurt; 6. spinach; 5. broccoli; 4. tomatoes; 3. oatmeal; 2. blueberries; 1. salmon

For me and the queen of my double-wide trailer, it's RC Cola and a moonpie. No tofu in Iowa biatches!

Wikipedia, when accurate, is your friend:

Poutine (pronounced, roughly, poo-TEEN, or peuh-TSEEN; exact Quebecer pronunciation is IPA [pn] listen to it in .wav format) is a popular snack consisting of french fries topped with fresh cheese curds and covered with hot gravy and sometimes other additional ingredients.

What the hell does "improved lactose intolerance" mean... do you become MORE intolerant?!

"Steak, cream pies, hot fudge - those were thought to be unhealthy - precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true." -- Doctors in the year 2173 in Woody Allen's Sleeper

Do you really want to live to be 100 by eating kimchee and soy?

India: Lentils
Lentils give you protein, cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, and lots of iron.

Oh wow man.

They probably actually meant it just that way.

Lactose intolerance is a "disorder" or whatever. Improved lactose intolerance would be like saying "improved flu symptoms." At least that is what I think they would argue.

what's Poutine? frakking deliciousness is what Poutine is. French fries, gravy, and cheese curds. I've been known to cross the border just to get Poutine. though I'm told Windsor Poutine doesn't hold a candle to proper Qubecos Poutine.

Soy doesn't bother me at all. If you think that eating well means eating stuff that tastes like crap, you don't know what you are doing.
