‘Health food’ should never be synonymous with ‘boring food’ when it doesn’t have to be! Contrary to popular belief Asian cuisine can be some of the healthiest out there when cooked properly. Using fresh ingredients often with a focus on vegetables, most dishes are cooked quickly, leaving little time to absorb oil and become mushy or greasy. Crunchy veggies, fragrant spices, and even a little kick of chilli here and there is a great way to leave you feeling refueled and energetic after a meal, rather than ready to melt into the couch in attempts to digest.
Here are five dishes we love to cook and eat at anytime, but especially on those days when we are eyeing up those skinny jeans or are need of a boost of fresh flavours to clear out the cobwebs and get us going. Hard to believe from these photos that they would ever fall into the same 'healthy' category as a boring old rice cake isn't it?
