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.

I wish to jot them down in my blog instead, for my readers who are keen to read more about whichever I knew.

In my note of FB, I mentioned about Fats – Saturated and Unsaturated Fat as well as Trans Fat. To my friends and readers, who wish to know what are those, in a summary of all, and some basic food items which contain these fats, here’s it: More

The Correct Way to Cook Instant Noodles

“No choice, but to eat instant noodles? Here’s the correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health (that much..)”

I have been sharing this piece of nutritional information with my readers in My Wok Life’s Face Book Fan Club. I did not post it up earlier on, because these types of nutritional tips/ information were supposed to be exclusive to my readers who joined me in my FB, as promised. However, it seems to be something useful to know, for the sake of your health, if you are one who hasn’t really came across this message.

Hence, I decided to have it posted in my blog today, to share it with ALL, even if you are not in my FB.. Just this one… The rest of other interesting information, you are still invited to log on and be my FRIEND, to know it all and have the first-hand information! Yeah, the FB Fan Club already has gotten to read this since a month ago…(chuckling)!

Well, you may or may NOT know about this:
Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it’s ready to eat. However, that is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles! By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder mixes, normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structures of the MSG causing it to be toxic, after boiling it on the heat.

Do you have any Question on Singapore Local Delicacies?

“Worried about having too much delicious local food? Here’re some facts, just for your information.”

Tasty and popular local food has always been related with unhealthiness and/ or ‘diet killing’ due to its oily cooking method, unhealthy food and/ or artificial ingredients mixes.

Green Mung Bean and its Nutritional Benefits

“Green (Mung) Bean offers best health benefits”

Green bean, is also famously known as Mung bean (Chinese translation: 绿豆). Its husk is green in colour, with yellow flesh when dehusked. It is low in fat, and high in its nutritional value. Whole green bean is solid, when it is raw. It takes hours in boiling to turn soft and fluffy.

Green bean claims to be a perfect slimming food. Some eat it as dieting food or food replacement in their slimming program. Not only it is low in fat, green bean is also a rich source of protein, and fiber which enables one to lower the high cholesterol level in body system. The high fiber in green bean yields complex carbohydrate which improves digestion. Complex carbohydrate helps to stabilize blood sugar in our body by preventing rapid rise after meal. It keeps our energy at an even level. Frequent consumption of green bean is beneficial to diabetes and one who suffers from high cholesterol level.

Seeing so much of its value, I feel like boiling a pot of green bean soup now! A bowl of nice hot sweet green bean soup may reward my taste bud as well as stomach. Of course, to my family, and to you, too! More
