    I enjoyed reading this blog. I like how you gave plenty of facts and sources to why Kimchi is healthy. I would’ve kept reading if you talked more about the food itself and how it was made. I also wonder what is in a typical dish.

    I have never had Korean food. This is very interesting and I will keep this in mind for when I try it. I have no doubt that it is a very healthy side. Any type of food is healthier than what Americans make.
