Honestly, I don’t really cook like some very complicated dishes. I’m like the basic person—what I mean is—I do the basic like frying and preparing the ingredients for cooking. For examples, I fry the egg, fish even meat and also prepare the ingredients but I don’t cook instead my sister is the one who cook some delicious delectable.
I admit that before I’m not a fan of cooking but I love tasting food—at least it’s the only thing I’m good at and as the days, months and years passes by—those things that I hate doing become my personal hobby especially the cooking. I thought its hard and very much pressure when you cook because you need to reach and live in people’s expectation about the food you cook. Actually, when I was in teenager I did tried to cook something like “Adobo”, one of the most favorite dishes in the Philippines. It’s not very technical or hard to cook and I cooked it very wrong. My siblings they were like bullying me and all stuff because I didn’t pulled it off and one of the worse experienced ever—I must say. But now, I understand that back in the day it felt to me that I was bullied by my own siblings but no—they just want me to get better and to get serious especially in cooking. Well, of course I know I need to take it seriously and have fun at the same time because time will come and everything I learned in the kitchen will paid off. You know what they say, when you’re mad your cooking definitely gonna taste really bad and I believed it. And another thing probably the most important of all, “the way to a man’s hearts is through his stomach”. If happened that you’re not a chef, at least you know how the good food taste like. And I am—lol, not the chef but the one know how to identify the great food and the not so good at all.
Today, I wanna show you what’s my sister cooked; of course with a little helped from me. I'm very proud of this one, as you will gonna see it, it's definitely the Picture Perfect meal for your family.
Let’s start to the greenish one; String beans Adobo—composed of string beans (low in calories and are a good source of vitamins A, C and K, vitamins that promote strong bones and good cardiovascular) pork slices, soy sauce, onion, garlic, pepper and some vinegar and spices. Eating too much pork will leads to unhealthy lifestyle that’s why going green is an awesome thing.
The next one is Loofah Misua—composed of loofah (another green veggies that helps our body and when not cook we can use it for body scrubbing and exfoliate our skin), misua (a kind of long tread-like-canton but thinner), and some spices and ground beef.
The third one is Tuna in a Soy Sauce (the way Adobo cooked is the same way this tuna should be cook, only this one has a spring onion).
And of course we need rice to balance the meal and then last but not the least, fried pork and fish fillet rolled in breeding mix. Simply and healthy dishes for any meal time whether be it for breakfast, lunch and dinner these array of food is perfect.
The second array of food, let’s start with the Shrimp Adobo (low in calories and saturated fat, has selenium—helps in neutralizing the effects of free radicals, which are associated with cancer, an excellent source of low-fat and low-cal protein, and has Vitamin D—essential for strong teeth and bones, and also regulates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
Next is Nilagang Baboy or Pork Stew; composed of pork, cabbage (it has vitamin C helps as an antioxidant that protects against the cell-damaging effects of oxidation from free radicals, produce enzymes that help to fight free radicals that can cause a number of different types of cancer), potato (moderate in calories, and non-fattening, has a fiber and phytochemicals, also has vitamin A, C and high in potassium) and some spices.
Third one is tofu—it lower bad cholesterol, reduces menopausal symptoms, decrease cancer risks, strengthen older bones and help prevent premature aging) and of course rice. Surely, when you eat these dishes you will not only feel full but also healthy. With all of these, there’s no reason you do not like a healthy lifestyle.
If you can’t be a full vegetarian because you still love eating meat like me, still you can find an alternative to live a healthy and less risks lifestyle. You know folks; there is some information that can help us to have a happy life. That is why I keep saying; keep reading something interesting because life is an amazing thing… :)
