A Balanced Lifestyle

With my "travel mode" on for the past few months, I have been busy going here and there.  Now after all the traveling, it is good to be back in back in my home sweet home again!  I have been busy getting my house cleaned up after my absence. I am also trying to do some healthy home cooking after consuming so much of arteries clogging food during my travel.

As you all know from the postings on my blog, I have been savoring and indulging in lots of mouth-watering food for the past few months. Not only that, now that I am back in my hometown, I have been going out daily with my friends to "catch up" and eating all the local food which I have missed while I was away.  Needless to say, I have put on weight, not surprising since I have been eating too much and now is the time for me to shed some of my body fat.

Actually, I have already done my homework on how to lose weight. Let me share with you what this website says about the types of food that can speed up weight loss. The words that caught my eyes are the food and speed! This sounds good to me.

Top 10 super foods that will speed up weight loss:

1.      Grapefruit – Eating half a grapefruit will minimize my appetite and it helps to melt away the fat in my body. Grapefruit is rich in Vitamin C. I like grapefruits.
2.       Black Pepper - Black pepper enable weight loss and stimulate digestion. It increases metabolism and stimulate my stomach. I am going to start adding black pepper into my cooking.
3.       Cinnamon – It lowers blood sugar levels and help suppress appetite. It can be added to my hot drink, like coffee or tea.
4.       Eggs – Eggs help to suppress my appetite, low in calories and contains protein.
5.       Apple – It is rich in fibre and water. I enjoy eating crunchy apples.
6.       Blueberries – These help to melt away the fat and best eaten as salad.
7.    Quinoa - It will not raise my blood sugar. After eating quinoa, I will feel satiated and crave less sweets and carbs.
8.       Chili – These suppresses appetite. I love spicy food!
9.       Coffee – It increases metabolism and melts away the fat.
1.   Vegetables – These are rich in nutrients, fibre and lots of vitamins so I will be losing weight the healthy way.



Having said all these, don't you think this is an easy way of losing weight? Let’s see how soon for me to see a difference in my weight.  But of course, most of all, I need to exercise at the same time, not just intake, output is important too.  Most important, do bear in mind that everything must be balanced, eat moderately and exercise regularly.  :)

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
