If you ask anyone "if they eat healthy," they may say yes. If you ask 10 people that same question, you'll probably get 10 different definitions of "healthy." If you read blogs or listen to podcasts, you may have heard of functional nutrition, the paleo diet, ketogenic diet, etc. Based off of many different sources that I have been reading/listening to, here is my take on the "The Healthiest Meal."
The Healthiest Meal, in my opinion, is a biased opinion. I come from an immigrant Korean background so I grew up eating Korean food all my life. So not only is this meal healthy, it's also a comfort meal to me. The Korean dish is called Seol leong tang, or ox bone soup. This form of bone broth takes 1-2 days to make, to create a full bodied broth. Not only does it taste good, the process of making the soup allows for the vitamins and minerals to be extracted from the bones. This soup is also full of collagen, a protein found throughout our body. If you were to take a bowl of this soup in the refrigerator, the liquid will turn into gelatin because the soup is full of collagen. Side dishes are often provided in Korean restaurants, the most popular being kimchi. Kimchi is fermented vegetables, usually made with cabbage or radishes. The consumption of fermented food help replenish our gut flora, similar to the benefits of yogurt. This particular restaurant also serves seaweed salad, another food known to have high nutritional value.
Movement IQ Physical Therapy is located in Fullerton and the recommended restaurants are both restaurants are located in Buena Park, a nearby city. The 2 restaurants I suggest going to are Jang Mo Gip (corner of Rosecrans and Beach Blvd.) or Han Yang (on Orangethorpe, between Beach Blvd and Knott Ave.) If you don't know how to read/speak Korean, I would suggest going to Han Yang because their menus have an English translation.
