I want to try a new type of cuisine that's both healthy and delicious - any recommendations?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to switch up my diet and incorporate some healthy yet tasty meals. I'm getting tired of my usual go-to's like salads and grilled chicken, so I'm looking to explore some different cuisines. It's important to me that the food is not only good for me, but also delicious - I want to enjoy what I'm eating! Any recommendations for me to try out? I'm open to all types of cuisine, so please share your favorites!

Thanks in advance!

I'd suggest trying out some Japanese cuisine. It's known for its simplicity and emphasis on fresh, wholesome ingredients. Sushi is a popular Japanese dish and can be a healthy option if you focus on vegetable, seafood or lean meats such as salmon or tuna. Teriyaki chicken or fish, miso soup, and yakitori (grilled chicken skewers) are also delicious options. Japanese cuisine often uses seaweed, which is rich in minerals and vitamins, and low in calories, so it's a good addition you can make into your meals for some nutrient boost.

Another great option is Indian cuisine, which can be healthy when chosen mindfully. Lentils, beans and vegetables like potato, cauliflower, and eggplant make up many Indian dishes, and they are usually spiced with flavorful herbs and spices like turmeric, cumin or cinnamon. Avoid fried dishes and creamy curries heavy on butter and cream, and you can try some light options such as dal, chana masala, tandoori chicken, or fish tikka.

Hope you find this useful!


Hi everyone,

I would recommend trying out some Peruvian cuisine. It's not as well-known as some of the cuisines mentioned previously, but it's packed with flavor and offers some healthy options. Ceviche is a classic Peruvian dish made with raw fish marinated in lime juice and spices, which is refreshing and perfect for warmer months. Another healthy and delicious option is ají de gallina, which is a chicken stew made with a creamy sauce made from blended nuts or seeds, and is typically served with boiled or roasted potatoes.

Another great cuisine to try is African cuisine, which has lots of delicious and healthy options. Many African dishes contain a lot of vegetables, legumes, and lean meats such as chicken or fish. Some great options to try are jollof rice (a spicy tomato rice dish), mafe (a peanut stew with vegetables and meat), and yassa (a lemony marinated grilled meat with onions).

I hope these suggestions give you some new and exciting cuisines to try!


Hey there!

I highly recommend trying out some Korean cuisine. It's flavorful, packed with good-for-you ingredients like veggies and lean meats, and is definitely not boring. Some of my favorites include bibimbap (a rice bowl with veggies, meat, and a fried egg), bulgogi (marinated grilled beef), and kimchi stew (spicy, sour soup with fermented cabbage).

Another healthy and tasty option is Mediterranean cuisine. Dishes like grilled fish or chicken with tzatziki sauce, hummus and veggies, and tabbouleh salad (made with bulgur wheat, parsley, tomatoes, and lemon juice) are all good choices. Plus, the Mediterranean diet has been shown to be one of the healthiest in the world, so it's definitely worth trying out!

Hope this helps and happy eating!


Hi everyone,

I would suggest trying out some Lebanese cuisine. It's both healthy and delicious with a focus on fresh ingredients like vegetables, beans, whole grains, and lean meats. Tabbouleh, a salad made of parsley, tomatoes, and onion, is a healthy and refreshing option that can be served as a side dish or light meal. Another dish to try is kofta, which is a spiced ground meat mixture shaped into small patties or balls and grilled or baked. Lebanese cuisine also has plenty of vegetarian options like stuffed grape leaves (dolma), eggplant dip (baba ghanoush), and chickpea dip (hummus).

Another healthy and tasty cuisine to explore is Mexican. While some Mexican dishes can be high in calories and fat, there are many healthy options like grilled fish or chicken tacos topped with salsa and avocado, black bean soup, or grilled vegetables fajitas. And let's face it, who can resist a good guacamole? It's packed with healthy fats and nutrients from the avocado.

I hope these suggestions inspire some healthy and tasty meals for you to try!



I would recommend trying out some vegan or plant-based cuisine. These options are typically healthier due to the focus on whole foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains. An example of a vegan dish that is both healthy and delicious is Buddha bowls, which usually contain a combination of vegetables, grains, and legumes with a flavorful sauce. Another vegan option is lentil soup, which is packed with protein and fiber, and is very satisfying.

Thai cuisine is another good option to try that offers a lot of healthy choices. Many dishes include fresh herbs like basil and cilantro, as well as vegetables like peppers, onions, and carrots. Green curry or stir-fry dishes are fantastic vegan options. Just be mindful of added sugars and sodium in sauces, and you'll be able to enjoy nutritious and flavorful dishes.

I hope these suggestions help!
