There is some good advice here. I like what US food writer Michael Pollan advises which resonate with this. His 'rules for eating' include:-

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

"Don't eat anything your great grandmother wouldn't recognize as food."

"Don't eat anything that won't eventually rot."

"Avoid edible food-like substances."

SE Asians I think have many advantages. Here in west the dominance of the supermarket makes keeping to these rules more of a challenge.
