This recipe good for high blood pressure, diabetes and fatty liver. Low-fat dairy products like yogurt in veggie soup are super healthy for menopausal women because they provide plenty of calcium and thus help to fight against natural aging and breakdown process of our bone structure.

Why is the the tradition of Filipino the Mung Bean (Munggo) dish every Friday? Does anyone here knows why? Maybe because in the Philippines people gets their salary every Friday. On Thursday they running out of budget already to extend it mung bean is cheaper than meat. With this as alternative to meat you can extend the quantity by adding vegetable and pork fat like „chicharron“. It make sense, you have soup and vegetable as viand in cheaper cooking. Do you agree with me? Well what ever the reason why, here is from my kitchen today’s meal prepping.🤣
