Padangs Food

Indonesian Foods Are the Spice of Life
By Chuck R Stewart

Padangs FoodWhen you want Indonesian food, and there is not an Asian market nearby or if there is not an Asian market around at all, you have two choices. You can accept that you will never be able to walk around a grocery that has the kinds of foods you love, or you can do what so many other people are doing these days - shopping for Indonesian food online. There are many places where convenience meets technology, and online Indonesian food businesses were made for just such a situation as this by their owners with the same frustrations. No gas, no driving for miles just to satisfy your craving for food from your homeland or just for a more exotic taste during your week. These stores also offer some of the lowest prices in North America as well as some of the most recognized Indonesian food brands.

Padangs FoodLike most large countries, there is no one kind of Indonesian cuisine, but Indonesian food has some generalities that make its many kinds of Indonesian foods unique, whether the Indonesian food is a play off other countries' foods or whether the dishes are native to various Indonesian regions. Some Indonesian dishes are influenced by Chinese cuisine (and vice versa), but others, such as the Padang food in Sumatra, show some Middle Eastern and Indian influence. Indonesian food is commonly eaten with a spoon in the right hand and a fork in the left, although in parts of the country, Indonesian food is just eaten with one's hands, as utensils are not easily procured.

Padangs FoodLike many Asian cultures, rice is the foundation of every meal. It can be eaten in a soup or with vegetables and meat. Rice can also be steamed in coconut fronds, which is called ketaput, or made into crackers, desserts, or even wines. Fried rice, called nasi goring, is one of the most popular Indonesian food dishes, although meat on a skewer served with peanut sauce (sate or satay), bean sprouts and vegetables with peanut sauce, and various kinds of seafood are also quite popular Indonesian foods. Indonesia has a gold mine of native tropical fruits that are enjoyed for their richness all over the world, including custard apples, guavas, rambutan, mangoes, starfruits, and papayas. In the Sumatra regions, they often provide curried meats and vegetables like gulai, which is an Indonesian curry with a characteristic yellow color from the spice turmeric and coconut milk. The Chinese influence on Indonesian food is seen in the prevalence of rice, noodles, and meatballs. Some Indonesian foods, however, are unique to the region, like tempe, which has become popular worldwide. Tempe comes from Java; its origin was a result of deforestation as protein became harder to come by, and the tempe provided an adequate alternative.

Padangs FoodVendors are a regular sight in Indonesia, and they often sell Chinese-inspired Indonesian foods like buns and noodles. Pork used to be sold, too, but with the rise of Islam in Indonesia, it is not used as often in traditional dishes.

Low Caloric Nutrient Dense Foods Make Us Happy
By Jamie Rackenthaler

Java Foods

Healthy Food Makes us Happy

There are many reasons to eat healthy foods. One of the most important reasons is that healthy foods make you happy.

Java FoodsApples versus Java

It sounds like a computer program, but scientists have shown that a morning apple actually wakes you up better than a caffeinated drink. Apples also have less calories and lots of good things like fiber, pectin, and vitamins. This means that several hours later you'll not only be more alert, but feel better also.

Java FoodsThe Crash Course

We all get tired from time to time. The inevitable sugar or caffeine break gives us a temporary feeling of goodness. In analogy, it is like throwing kerosene on a fire. It burns brightly, but quickly burns out. Healthy foods are like the logs burning in the fire. They keep you going for the long haul.
Getting temporary or extreme highs leads you to also get lower lows. This leads to a cycle of using the unhealthy food to feeling just good enough to get away from the lows. It has been said by health experts that caffeine is the most abused drug in our society. It is very addictive and very difficult to quit.

Java FoodsComparison Eating

Humans are always comparing everything to a standard. For example, what is your favorite food and why? I might say that my favorite food is Swiss chard because of its high nutrient density and low caloric intake.

On the other hand, on some unconscious level, we are all comparing how good something tastes and nature has programmed our taste buds for sugar and fats. The problem is that we compare healthy foods with foods that are ultra man made packed with both fat and sugar. Unconsciously through nature itself, we crave these higher density fat and sugar foods.

Java Foods
The Solution

The solution is quite simple. Stop eating the man made foods full of sugar and fat. When you do this, your brain stops comparing foods and you will consume less of bad foods.

The big benefit is that healthy foods will taste a lot better to you than they ever have. Your taste buds will be more sensitive and you will love the flavor of natural foods. Through time, you will notice that you become more happy. You will have removed a source of stress to your body. Your body will thank you.
