These 7 Bizarre Ethnic Food Delicacies did just that to me. While I might be daring enough to try a few of them, I still have to wonder what possessed the first people in history who thought to even try these!

Of course, over the many thousands of years people have been on this planet, they have tried eating any and everything available. Some of the more absurd sounding (and looking!) foods become “delicacies” to certain cultures while, to others, they seem absolutely strange – even disgusting.

But it takes all kinds to make a world, so let’s now get into the list of:

Many Benefits of Almond Milk

Many Benefits of Almond Milk

Occasionally I like to post about healthy foods. This article on the many benefits of almond milk is a bit of a departure from our main focus on ethnic foods from cultures the world over. However, our readership has always commented on their appreciation for these types of informative posts, also.

Dairy milk is by far the most well known and preferred type of milk in most cultures around the planet. It is known and revered for its high content of several minerals and vitamins, as well as providing some protein. Almond milk, however, tops cow’s milk in lots of ways, including even more protein and extra nutrients not found in dairy milk.

Health benefits of drinking almond milk, which I will get into at length and in detail below, include, but are not limited to: improved vision, weight loss, strong bones and a strong, healthy heart. Further, almond milk is an excellent substitute to nursing mothers’ breast milk. It will also help in building strong muscles, lowering high blood pressure and maintaining ideal blood pressure, and keeping your kidney healthy and functioning at optimum level.

Ethnic Foods – What Are They, Really?

Share

The other day a friend, who is also into gourmet and ethnic food cooking, asked me to list what I considered as the Top 10 Ethnic Foods. And it gave me pause, because I had to stop and think:

Just what is “ethnic” food, really?

If I were asked to define ethnic foods, I finally came to think, I would first have to take into account all the ethnic food types, the many ethnic food groups, and really, when I started to think globally, the idea of being able to select, prioritize, and list ethnic foods in a “Top 10” category became impossible.

Why, you ask?

Because what is “ethnic” food to me, living in The Great Lakes Region of the USA, is not going to be the same as someone living in Asia, or Africa, or Australia, or South America, heck—even someone from another region within my own country would consider some of the foods I eat regularly as “ethnic” and visa versa for me.

How about referring to The Random House Dictionary’s definition of “ethnic”:

“Pertaining to or characteristic of a people, especially a group (ethnic group) sharing a common and distinctive culture, religion, language, or the like.”

So here again, it is important to remember that what you or I might consider as ethnic will depend on where we come from and what particular culture, religion, language, or the like that we share with others in our specific culture.

If an Englishman were to sit down to breakfast and be served a typical breakfast I might have,consisting of scrambled eggs, hashed brown potatoes, Canadian bacon, pancakes, toast and jam, and coffee, he/she would consider that as an authentic ethnic American food experience.
