Small Abalone (Limpets) and Shredded Chicken Congee (小鲍鱼鸡丝粥)

“An ideal healthy light meal for your detox diet plan.”

Just feeling a little unwell with feverish body and dry throat. Chinese believed that rice congee or you called it rice porridge, might help to reduce the increased body heat (the body “heatiness”). So, I liked to cook porridge for dinner, if I found myself or my family member with symptoms of falling sick.

Most of the people would eat porridge as breakfast or supper as it was normally perceived as light meal. And, it could be digested easily, as compared to solid food such as rice. read more

No Bake (Low-Fat) Yogurt Cheese Cake

“A luscious No-bake Low-Fat Yogurt Cheese Cake with Easy-Making Steps. You may try it anytime, any day!”

Yogurt is one of the staple food in my refrigerator. To eat it more interestingly, I find all sort of ways to have yogurt added to my dessert or fruits dishes.

Cheese cake is one of our favourite desserts, so far. However, those rich heavy cheese cakes are often too creamy, making me a little sick after having the entire slice… Well, this inspired me to make my own cheese cake. So, I made this cheese cake with my favourite yogurt added into it! read more

Assorted Vegetables Soup with Pork Ribs aka Chinese ABC Soup

“It’s the Home cooked ABC Soup!”

Soup is water which boiled together with other ingredients such as vegetables, meat and melons, until the flavour is extracted. Soup offers high nutrition values enriched by the ingredients we have added in the soup.

Besides pork ribs, I used a variety of vegetables in this recipe. I think this is one of my successful soup recipes, much likeable by my family. This soup gives off aromatic smell while boiling it, and most importantly, this soup has its natural sweetness. It has very pleasant aroma and taste to your palate. read more

Nata de Coco & Fruit Mixes in The Glass

“Just another way to serve your fruits, with Nata de Coco this time!”

I go supermarket almost every other day, to buy daily groceries and food as well as checking out information on any latest food or food-related products.

Nata de Coco – It might sound unfamiliar when first heard it, but you surely have tasted it before. In cafeteria, dessert store or elsewhere, just could not recall its name at times (smiling). It’s OK even if this is first time you heard about it.

Nata de Coco was originated from Philippines. It is chewy, juicy and slightly translucent, jelly-like coconut water (which has been fermented) in tiny cubes. Nata de Coco is high in dietary fiber. One of the best food/ snack for dieting, health conscious people like you and me, as it contains zero fat and cholesterol as well as low in calories. And, it’s tasty! Even though Nata de Coco is often sweetened, but its calories count only 60kcal per serving of generous portion. read more

Vegetables Broth with Fish Cakes

“Simply tasty vegetable broth to reduce your calorie intake”

Need something light for tonight’s dinner? My family does. So, I prepared this vegetables broth with fish cakes, tonight.

Vegetables, good for health, great for dieting, and excellent for taste, too!

I used fish cake slices as I think fish cakes go well with this vegetable broth. I did not use any ribs or meat in this soup. As usual, I added my favourite seasoning, chicken stock cube. Just half a cube used, this vegetable broth has becoming an extra delectable soup. read more

Mango Smoothie with Fresh Mango in Glass


“Healthy smoothie treats for everyone!”

This is a very simple homemade smoothie which doesn’t even need a blender to do the mixing. By all mean, go ahead with a blender, if it’s easier for you. The consistency between using a fork and into a blender differs a little. The later certainly yields more refine and smoother consistency.

This dessert takes less than 10 min to make 2 glasses.

Serves 2 large glasses
Ingredients:
2 honey mangoes, chilled and peeled
1 cup of plain yogurt (low-fat)
2 tablespoons of breakfast cereal (eg honey stars or cornflakes), lightly crushed
2 tablespoons of honey
