Korean Namul, the Centerpiece of Vegetarian Diet













*Namul, the basis of Korean cuisine
Edible plants grow in mountains and fields, receiving energy from the earth and withstanding seasonal changes. A typical Korean meal is unimaginable without namul.  Vegetarian dishes, including kimchi, are the basics of Korean cuisine. About 70 percent of the Korean territory is covered with mountains. Large-scale cattle-farming is impossible because of the lack of grasslands. That's why Koreans know how to make the best use of plants growing in mountains and fields.

*Natural anti-cancer remedy
Obesity and adult diseases are on the rise across the world. As a solution, many experts point to vegetable-based diet. Plants produce special biochemicals to protect themselves from insects and bacteria. These substances play an important role. One of the main causes of cancer and aging is free radicals. Plant phytochemcials are excellent at removing free radicals from the body. Professor Ham Seung-shi, who studies edible plants, refused to undergo chemotherapy when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer. He cured his disease by eating namul.

*World's healthy foods and Korean namul recipe
Sometimes they are eaten raw, but Koreans like to boil their vegetables. Boiling vegetables helps remove harmful substances and improve the body's absorption of beneficial substances. Okinawa is known for the longevity of its residents. Okinawans' secret to healthy and long living also lies in the traditional vegetable-based diet. Macrobiotics originated in Japan and has become popular in France, the U.S. and other western countries for promoting healthy eating. Vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet. Experts recommend cooking vegetables before eating.  It's similar to the way Koreans prepare namul. 

*Namul, a blessing for vegetarians
Korean cuisine, especially bibimbap, which is made with namul, is very popular among French for its healthful properties. Bibimbap is made by topping rice with all kinds of in-season namul. They may vary according to taste. Vegetarians laud Korean namul and bibimbap as a blessing. Vegetables are a healthy choice. Korean namul plays an important role in vegetarian diet.
