Karman Foods & Asian Market - Curated Asian Food Delivered

Eating healthier is on many people's list of new year's resolutions, and it's for multiple good reasons. If you're one of them, consider shopping at an Asian supermarket and trying some new recipes. There are many ways to eat healthier, and changing what you cook is one of them. The ever-increasing availability of natural and organic products is part of the eating healthier trend. Moving away from processed foods and toward whole ingredients can make you feel better and help you lose weight. As food producers become more aware of consumers' preferences, the options continue to expand.

In addition to natural and organic products, you can try new recipes to improve the healthiness of what you cook and eat at home. For example, Asian recipes for combination main dishes often use meat as a flavoring rather than a bulk ingredient. Vegetables become the main item and are delicious when prepared with the right sauces and seasonings. You'll be eating less fat and cholesterol and getting vitamins and fiber in place of them. Now that we understand more about healthy food like plan-based protein (tofu), the range of options is more significant. You don't need to sacrifice the flavors you love to cut calories.

If you've been a big meat eater all of your life, you might be surprised by how much you enjoy main course dinner recipes with vegetables and grains as the bulk ingredients. It all depends on the recipes you try and their flavors and textures. Asian cooking also emphasizes umami, the fifth human taste that is savory (or savory-sweet). It's abundantly present in many of the world's most favorite dishes and might explain why you love many of the things you do. When it first made news in the 1950s, a chemical food additive caused allergies and got bad press. Now cooks do it naturally.

Conventional supermarkets are famous for their natural and organic products aisles, but now stores offer much more. When you're in a store where organic products are the mainstay, your choices will expand, and you'll better understand all that is available. It's too easy to buy the same things every week, and when you see different products, it will spark new ideas. Today, many grocers also offer recipes and product samples to help shoppers try new things. If you want products skewed toward healthier eating, find a store specializing in them. You'll enjoy the experience and learn something.
