Food Around the World Part #3; Vietnamese:
Vietnamese do not use deep fryers or cook dishes in lots of animal fat or butter. Instead, they use water or broths, which are both very low or free of calories.
These dishes also uses natural flavorings like cilantro, mint, Thai basil, star anise, and red chili; which have been used for various alternative remedies for various health problems. For example, cilantro and anise help aid in digestion and fight disease causing inflammation.
One great dish to try is pho, which is a broth based soup full of antioxidant packed spices. One thing to avoid at Vietnamese restaurants are the fatty short ribs.
