The appearance of the food matters a lot in this country. Most people in the country focus on how their food looks as it not only makes for an appealing meal but helps them with portion control and healthy eating. When there are more vegetables added on the plate to make it colorful, your calorie intake becomes restricted and you also end up with a high content of mineral and vitamins in your meal.
Using chopsticks regularly is a widely followed eating custom in the country. Health experts say that it’s actually very good for you to eat with chopsticks as it slows down your eating which results in people eating less food. This helps in the prevention of weight gain and obesity.
