Green Mung Bean with Barley Dessert Soup

“Green (Mung) Bean Sweet Soup & Barley, Double Taste & Double Benefit”

Whenever I think of slimming food, I think of green bean.

I’ve ever came across an article on how green bean helps in slimming effect. A bowl of green bean paste/ soup (without sugar added) to be taken daily helps to lose weight. Result will be seen as fast as within a week. Frankly, I am not quite sure if it is so real. Based on my experience, it helps a little. Was it due to the green beans? Probably yes, as it aids digestion, afterall. Anyway, green bean offers nutritional benefits. 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.

I preferred it with less sugar, too. Honey rock sugar would make my preffered choice, and it is good for smoothen dry throat, reduce “heatiness” and improve skin and complexion. To add better flavour to my sweet soup, I liked to use also the pandan leaf. It gives an aroma of pandan in my palate when having it. read more
