Whats your preferred food culture?
Sadly we Brits aren’t viewed as healthy bunch by other cultures. Part of this is down to the mass of convenience food we eat in our hectic schedules. So, who are considered the 3 healthiest food cultures and which of their ingredients can we pack-up for our lunches at work?
3. Greece – Mediterranean style food not only tastes great, it also helps combat obesity, cancer and heart disease. Try Greek yogurt! It’s packed with calcium, protein and probiotics to keep your bones, muscles and gut bacteria strong.
2. Italy – More Mediterranean magic here keeps the Italians strong and living long. Olive oil is a central ingredient to most Italian meals. It contains a richness of antioxidants which are proven to keep hearts healthy. Drizzle it over salads for your midday munch!
1. Iceland – Perhaps an unexpected winner, but the Icelandic diet is rich in fish. The omega-3 fats found in oily fish like salmon, tuna or mackerel are building blocks for the brain. So, think smart and go fish!
