French Toast

It's been a year already since I was told by my physician that I have hypoglycemia. So I have been into a high-protein diet. My blood sugar is normal now and I do cheat sometimes with my diet. But I am really trying my best to stick to a healthy meal everyday.
For breakfast, if I have something to do with work early morning, I just make 100% whole grain French toasts. My kids love it. I have syrup for them but for  myself, I substitute syrup with sweet fruits. Usually, I out blackberries and blueberries on my French toast. No butter too. It's kinda dry so it's better to have a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice or soymilk. I always have a glass of vanilla unsweetened almond milk. I can't drink it alone so I need to have something to munch on when I'm drinking it. So it is perfect to my French toast. It's really good even the egg I used didn't have anything except vanilla powder. I cooked it on the pan without oil. It doesn't stick as long as the pan is really heated well. I can eat this everyday. Cheers to a healthy lifestyle!

Instant Noodle Without the Seasoning

There are times that we are too busy with work, kids and home that we really don't feel like cooking. We can just order food to go or just turn to TV dinners or instant food. I haven't tried ordering food yet since we moved here in the country. We are 15 minutes away from the main town and I am not sure if delivery is possible in a small town. We do have a café nearby but I prefer making my food if we plan to dine home.
When busy, I just grab instant noodles and serve. Kids love noodles. They have Asian blood. Eating instant food is not healthy though that is why when I serve noodles or ramen, I don't use the seasoning that comes in the pack. I use our seasoned left-over meat or roasted chicken to add flavor to the instant noodle. And it always tastes good! No preservatives and healthier. Their noodles taste like they're already seasoned so you will like it even without the salty seasoning in a packet. Why not try it tonight if you feel like not cooking ;)

Birthday 2014

It's my birthday! Another year older and I feel weaker. This year, I have been having a lot of health problems. Nothing major though and I thank God for that. Still grateful for having another year to live and more!

I have been cooking healthy as you noticed because of my health issues. I am trying to be a role model too to my kids. I cook and eat healthy for them, for my family. I still try other recipes and modify them to suit my taste.  But recently, I just always have green salad. Less cooking for me but I do cook for my loved ones. I took a lot of pictures to share but I just don't have time to post it right away. I will try my best to update my food blog more than once a week so please bear with me guys. To all my followers, thank you and thanks for visiting my site. I'll try to keep up. That's one of my birthday wishes!

Sautee Onion on heated olive oil, medium heat, until tender crisp. Add potatoes and cover. Let it cook for 5-10 minutes until tender crisp, stirring occasionally. Add salami or ham until heated.
