The “Blue Zones” Eating Habit

Working together with National Geographic Society, Buetter has led teams of researchers across the globe, reveals the secrets of longevity through stories of his travels and interviews with some of the most remarkable and happily long-living people on the planet. Those areas include Loma Linda in California, Nicoya Peninsula in Central America, Ogliastra in Italy, Ikaria in Greek and Okinawa in Japan and collectively they call them the “Blue Zones“.

People from these “Blue Zones” share common eating habit, including:

  1. They follow a high carbs and low protein diet in which 65% of food are carbs, 15% are protein and 20% are fat;
  2. 95% of their food come from plants and 5% from the animal and they eat mainly fish;
  3. Eating at least half a cup of beans and legumes a day;
  4. Eaving nuts for their snacks.

Beans ! Chickpeas !

And for the suggestion eating at least half a cup of beans and legumes a day, chickpeas is the most popular among them. Chickpeas is also known as Garbanzo bean or gram bean and it has a plentiful amount carbohydrate, protein and fiber.

For vegan or vegetarian, it provides them with a good amount of protein. If you are going on a diet, it fill your stomach and gives you satiety with the fiber it has. And also, it is easily digest so it is suitable for children and elderly too.

I graduated from human nutrition for my university and worked for companies that are related to food, nutrition or weight management. It's my pleasure to share with you what I enjoy doing through the blog here. I love to eat and follow recipes to make something delicious from scratch. Because of this, I have been working as a pastry chef for around one year since the end of 2014. At the same time, I am an active person. I started trail running since 2015. Because of my love of nature, I love natural and handmade stuff, and I started making cleansing products or skin care products for myself recently. Please stay tuned for my sharings.
