Chad

Chad and other African countries are among the healthiest countries. The market is a focal point for society, which means that much of their food is fresh, free of the preservatives and unnecessary saturated fats and salt that are common in prepackaged meals. A national dish of the county is Boules , a thick porridge made with grains like corn, millet, and sorghum. Fortunately, the locally produced okra, dried allspice, guava, mangoes, cassava, mutton, goat and fish are rich in vital nutrients and can be seen as some similarities to the paleo diet.

Greek

The traditional Greek diet is one of the most studied. It emphasizes unsaturated fats, legumes, vegetables, fish and grains. As a result, its nutritional values ​​are very high, especially in omega-3, from its popular ingredients of chickpeas, peppers, and sardines. It's also surprisingly low in meat, which in turn reduces saturated fat consumption. When you consider that "salad" and "yogurt" are two words that usually follow "Greek", it is not really surprising that this national cuisine is among the healthiest in the world.

Indian

In the West, one can think of Indian foods rich in unhealthy fried ingredients like samosas, popadoms, and bhajis, as well as cream colored curries. However, many of these Indian food items have become very popular overseas, while authentic Indian food is much healthier. The spices, which are so strongly contained in Indian cuisine, not only give the dishes their unique taste, but also protect against some types of cancer, have anti-inflammatory and healing properties and can even help prevent Alzheimer's disease. Vegetable curries are a mainstay of many regions in the country, and many carnivorous areas avoid pork or beef.

These ingredients have very powerful antioxidant properties that inhibit cancer growth. Many elements of Thai cuisine boost the immune system and aid digestion. Ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass, which are regularly found in dishes, are all known in Asian medicine to treat a variety of different ailments and diseases.

South Korean

Did you know that the average height of a South Korean is about two inches taller than that of its northern neighbors? This is due in part to their nutrient-dense diets, which have historically been comparable to or surpassing "developed" Western countries, while avoiding the saturated fats that have made obesity an epidemic across Europe and North America. The low-fat diet South Koreans enjoy consists mainly of tofu, noodles, eggs, and fish, and is often accompanied with a side of kimchi, a fermented dish made from vegetables and a variety of spices. While Korean barbecue, especially beef, is one of the most popular dishes in the country, appetites appear to be more restrained, with an average per capita consumption of 16 pounds of beef per year compared to the American average of 67 pounds.

Spanish

Much of the reason the Spanish diet is among the healthiest in the world is because of its portion control, with tapas dishes being a common way of eating. Being able to sample a range of different foods in one sitting seems to be common for inadvertent gluttony; However, if you are not in a rush, the small servings of tasty, healthy foods within the caloric limits will leave you full enough. The high-fiber, low-fat diet includes lots of beans, vegetables, olive oil, seafood, and oily fish, all of which are superstars when it comes to weight control and general wellbeing. Gazpacho is especially noteworthy as it is full of cancer-fighting lycopene and antioxidants.

Swedish

Sweden places good nutrition at the forefront of its public health crusades. The Scandinavian diet is generally very healthy, with an obesity rate of 11 percent and an average life expectancy of 81 years. The Swedish diet is more likely to be deficient in fruits and vegetables; Instead, it's a diet rich in dark breads, berries, fish, and dairy products that are loaded with fiber and antioxidants and come together to burn fat. The quality of the food is high: the meat and dairy products come from animals that have eaten well in the course of their lives and thus pass on valuable nutrients to the eater.

Vietnamese

Fresh, lively, light and tasty are the words that come to mind when you think of Vietnamese cuisine. The dishes are mostly made up of herbs and chilli, which infuse all dishes with heat-boosting nutrients and delicious flavor. Pho is a noodle soup that is rich in antioxidants and nutrients; although it can be quite large, it is low in fat and has easily digestible ingredients. Vietnamese noodles are rice based, making them easier to digest than their gluten-based counterparts. Many of the dishes are served with sides like peppers, spring onions, chicken, and pork, which are added to the main course depending on your preference. The ingredients aid digestion, fight inflammation and, along with the type of food you eat, aid in portion control.
