Stir Fried Cabbage & Tang Hoon (Glass Noodle) For Weight Loss

“A nostalgic home cooked dish, my grandma used to cook it so often during my childhood. And now, I cook this with healthy hacks and turn it into my weigh loss recipe! Weight loss? Read on and you will know why.”

This has to be one of my regular dishes during my dieting period. Cabbage, somewhat contains substances which aid in slimming, whilst glass noodle is flavorful, yet, counting lower in calorie as compared to other types of noodle.

Since I said my cooking was a dish meant to be incorporated into my dieting program, I have to adapt Grandma’s cooking into my own recipe, in a healthier way.

Low-Carb Cheesy “Toast”

“My toast ain’t bread. It’s low-Carb food. It’s vegetable!”

Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.

You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :)

Papaya Snow Fungus Sweet Soup with Black Sugar (木瓜雪耳黑糖水)

“Come, learn the correct method, follow the actual steps, to cook this nourishing papaya snow fungus sweet soup in my recipe.”

Just realized that I did not have my papaya snow fungus sweet soup recorded. I thought I did, but apparently only having the savory version as well as the adaption with winter melon. Well, this was a great time to showcase it as I boiled this nourishing goodness with Okinawa black sugar instead of rock sugar. It turned out to be even tastier and smoother mouthfeel. For sure, black sugar is healthier version of sugar than other kinds of sugar, especially for women, as it provides nutrients such as Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. Plus, this sweet soup helps in nourishing the lungs as well as skin complexion. What’s more can I ask for?! :D

Vietnamese Summer Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce

“A side dish, that’s as good as a 1-dish meal!”

When come to Vietnamese food, the summer rolls are the sides which I would never missed. Yes, this is my favorite side dish in the Vietnamese cuisine. So much so that I would want to make my own so that I could have it anytime, even at home. And, I would eat summer rolls as a meal, sometimes. Why not, it has all the vegetables, meat, prawns and bee hoon in one! :)

Summer rolls are not difficult to make, but needed quite a bit of preparation work done. I wouldn’t mind, because I knew I would have the best spicy peanut sauce made by myself that I could adjust the taste best suited to my liking. You are right, the summer rolls would never complete without a nice dipping sauce.
