Traditional Japanese breakfast consists of a rice, miso soup base with natto fermented soy bean, grilled fish and some pickled greens. Also, sometimes eggs called tamagoyaki. The Japan breakfast is considered by Japanese to be light and easy on the stomach so it doesn’t way you down during the day. Also, the breakfast in japan tends to use little oil.
Given the typical Japanese breakfast, I thought it would be fun to compare to an American breakfast, Chinese breakfast, Germany breakfast and Indian breakfast to see which was the healthy. Measuring the calories showed that Indian breakfast to be the lowest in calories and the American breakfast to be the highest in calories. As mentioned in the video,these examples are what many people think of as typical for that country, but obviously there are exceptions and with so many diets these days and ever changing eating habits, it doesn’t apply to everyone. But for all intents and purposes and in order to make this video, I had to narrow down the typical breakfast for each country. Also, I had to take some liberties with a few of the ingredients at the local super markets, but I think it should serve its purpose. I might get some of this wrong, so definitely let me know in the comments section if I missed something.
