After living in Indonesia for the past 4 years, I recently visited Canada/North America for the first time in three years. In today’s video I share my impressions and observations as to what has changed in the realm of healthy eating and I talk a little bit of the advantages and disadvantaes of the food industry in Canada/North America compared to Indonesia/Southeast Asia.
I once did a video talking about my husband’s diet, how he eats a traditional Indonesian diet of white rice, vegetables and some sort of animal or vegetable protein three times a day, everyday. Someone wrote me asking what my opinion of white rice is, is it really all that unhealthy as they say it is in the West, or is it ok to eat it as part of a healthy diet? Half the world’s population eats a rice-based diet (similar to what my husband’s eats), and they certainly aren’t eating brown rice or other whole grain rices, so is white rice all that bad? Here’s my opinion!!
A few years ago I did a video about why I moved to Bali (if you haven’t seen that video, you should, it’s quite a story!!!), and since making that video, I have received countless emails from people asking me all sorts of questions about moving abroad! So today’s video is all about answering those questions, and also sharing a bunch of tips and suggestions on how to prepare, plan and smoothly make the move.
