Simple Salad and Fruits with Honey Mustard & Thousand Island Dressing for Dinner

“It’s good if we could eat simple.”

Before sharing more on my curry chicken dish, I would like to go healthy first. I had salad for dinner tonight because my detox diet program starts today! :)

I read an article in the Sunday newspaper which talks about 1-week detoxification. It reminds me that it’s also about time for ME to go on some diet plans. Ya, I started my day with a glass of fresh lemon juice water in my empty stomach…Then, here comes my homemade salad with fruits… Oh well, I know I am not supposed to put these kinds of dressing I have added in my salad, but… Give me some allowances, alright?! I couldn’t go on full force just like this. Time to warm up, please (chuckling). More

Homemade Mango & Strawberry Salsa

“Fruits day, it’s not necessary to be in liquid or paste form. I make fruits into refreshing briny salsa dish.”

I saw a very great Japanese pork chop cutlet from a Japanese variety show in tv, and decided to try it out as it looks really alluring (Show you the recipe next time!).

To make my pork chop meal more balance with both dry and moist dishes, the fruit salsa came to my mind. I had thus craving to make mt own salsa as I find it a great complement to something dry, like pork chop, since it contrasts the taste and texture.. The super refreshing mouthfeel to have a chilled side dish like salsa for piping hot pork chop is also what I was looking for. More

Chilled Mango Sago & Pomelo Dessert (杨枝甘露)

“Dessert time… Once again, you’ll get to see my passion to Hong Kong in my cooking. My low-fat version of this all-time favourite and delicious HK sweet treat, the mango sago pomelo dessert. It’s cut down in fat, but never in taste. Serve it chilled!”

Sunday is our ‘fruit-juice day’. I tried making this occasion a weekend routine every Sunday afternoon. Firstly, I’ll get to deplete the over-stocked fruits in my fridge. Secondly, it’s easier to maximize the intake of vitamins and minerals by a glass of fruit juice than just one single cut fruit at a time.

To have the fruit fiber in it, I usually blend the whole fruit instead of getting just its juice. So, no worries about wasting the fiber, in most of My‘s fruit juice recipes (smile). More

V-Day Special – Romantic Pinkie Dragon Fruit Juice

“If you aren’t a alcohol drinker, this healthy & low-fat romantic pink fruit smoothie should be your top option for this coming V-Day.”

I had this similar fruit juice smoothie at the Golden Shoe hawker centre at Raffles Place. Its unusual flavor wasn’t that impressive when I first tasted it, but it didn’t stop me from giving it a second try since my close colleague had constantly reminded me how delicious was this special fruit juice. Ok, I finally agreed with her and started liking it more and more after a few tries. It is priced at $2.20 per big cup, and this considers a very good price for a superior type of fruit juice selling at Raffles Place district. However, it is still not that economical to have a few dollars beverage on daily basis when I can simply drink some kinds of tea or coffee beverages provided by my office (smile). Oh well, I made this by myself at home now. I did not want to deliberately buy so many different kinds of fruit just for this, but it happened that I had given a big basket of fruits hamper as my get-well-soon gift after my surgery treatment. I, then, had most of the fruits I needed to make this beverage. So, here it is to be shared in my blog, especially V-Day is just next month!

Ok.. This is very simple to make, what you need to have is a blender for the following recipe. But, not sure why, my fruit juice is not as strong and sweet taste as the one I have tasted from the store. Are some kinds of fruit essence or sweetener added into the juice? Or is it simply due to the sweetness of the fruits used? I am not quite sure though. More

Sugar Cane Fish Meat Drumsticks

“An absolute kid-pleaser dish.. Fun to see, nice to eat!”

Having trouble getting your kids (or the big kid) to eat more fish?
Cook this to make the fish dish more fun. A way to disguise the fish meat in a fun-looking drumstick-like appearance, the kids will be more than willing to pick up one to try. Yes, it works!

This sugar cane fish meat drumstick tasted very delicate with an aroma of egg coated on the surface of the fish drumstick. I liked the tenderness in the fish meat, too. More

Sliced Sheng Yu (Haruan Fish) and Green Papaya Soup (生鱼片木瓜汤)

“This is my light and flavorful Sheng Yu soup, without too many elements in it. This is simply an appealing clear fish soup dish that whets your appetite, at the same time, takes care of your health!”

‘Sheng Yu’ (生鱼), the Chinese term for Haruan fish. Haruan is also known as Snakehead Murrel, if it sounds more familiar to you.

In Cantonese culture, Haruan fish is recommended for one who had undergone surgery as it’s believed in the wound healing properties of this fish. More
