Food Pyramids

Asian Diet Pyramid

The authentic traditional Asian diet emphasizes balance and harmony in foods: hot and cold or spicy and sweet. Grains and grain products make up one-half of their bowl while vegetables, fruits, and nuts (like peanuts!) make up the other half. Try adding roasted peanuts to your next Asian noodle dish or a peanut-sauce marinade.
