๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡นANOTHER GASTRONOMIC ADVENTURE WITH AN EX-COLLEAGUE – CELEBRATED CHINESE NEW YEAR – EAT-OUT DINNER

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ Event gastronomy in Vienna, the culinary attractions in Vienna are diverse. If you are looking for something for everyone who is enthusiastic about a meal with a high entertainment value and event character, Vienna has a lot to offer. But these are small Restaurants in the city that are run by Asian people whom we love to try from time to time. Exempted is the Vegan ice which is run by Austrian and the Krah Krah Restaurant in the First District of Vienna which I tried with my ex-colleague. First Stop, lunch at Krah Krah Restaurant run by Austrian. 1980s Ale pub with the garden serving international food and drink including giant sandwiches. Rabensteig 8 A-1010 Vienna

The next one is one of our favourite Restaurants near Naschmarkt. With authentic Asian Cuisine. Restaurant Chinazentrum Zhong Xin For more than 15 years they have been spoiling guests from all over the world with traditional Chinese food and drinks at the Naschmarkt in 1060 Vienna. A Far Eastern ambience awaits you in our restaurant. “Zhongxin” means centre and their first location from 2002-to 2014 was on Rechte Wienzeile 29, 1040 Vienna. In 2014 they relocated to 1060 Vienna. Linke Wienzeile 44 1060 Vienna

The third one is Soya Noodles their meals are inspired by simple Asian cuisine. Prepare them daily from fresh ingredients and they do not use glutamate. They love coconut, ginger, chilli and Thai basil, so you can find them in most of their meals. AmerlingstraรŸe 19, A-1060 Vienna

The last one is the Veganista Ice Cream. Run by two sisters who have been vegan for over 20 years and have been passionately pursuing a big dream: to produce honest and delicious ice cream. No artificial flavours, colours or powders. Simply the best ice cream with the best ingredients. AmerlingstraรŸe 19, Vienna

ANOTHER HIKING DAY with MY DOG MARY๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ•

Another hiking day for the three of us, my niece and daughter with my doggy Mary and her mom Riyana my daughter’s dog.

Hiking day and walks around Puchberg

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณI’m a type 2 diabetic hiking is also recommended, as it lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and increases physical and mental well-being. However, diabetes patients should keep an eye on their blood sugar levels when hiking to avoid fluctuations in blood sugar. Sport is important for diabetes patients. Moderate but regular physical activity improves the performance of the heart, the oxygen supply and lowers the blood sugar level. Endurance sports are particularly suitable for people with diabetes mellitus. However, they should not strive for records, but pay attention to their energy reserves. Hiking is a popular sport, in Austria and Germany around 40 million people are active hikers. Diabetics can also practice hiking, as can walking. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณThank you so much for dropping by and please like, share and subscribe for more Videos and recipes around the Globe and Eating and Hiking as Medicine on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.——-Dolly here

FUN-HIKE on WEEKEND

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณRecreation area Wienerwald. Great hikes are possible. Take the opportunity on days when not everyone comes up with the idea of โ€‹โ€‹going to the zoo, then you have the opportunity to go for a walk without being disturbed by the crowds. That’s what we did just to unwind from the city with COVID-19. Almost two months lockdown. Hiking and any other sort of physical activity is a great way to unwind from the stresses. In order to prevent blood sugar fluctuations when hiking or physical activities, diabetes patients should protect themselves by taking regular measurements. Hiking is particularly popular in splendid weather, although hiking is also very suitable for people with diabetes. However, diabetes patients must take care that they prevent severe fluctuations in blood sugar. Because exercise and physical exertion can both lower and increase blood sugar.

๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡นFIRST MEAL AFTER 6HOURS DUTY

How the order you eat your food affects your health:  Studies says; starting our meal by eating vegetables and protein, keeps us fuller than if we ate first carbohydrates.

Soup plate and Rye wholecorn crispbread – iCookiTravel

In this situation today, I got home went direct in my kitchen prepping my soup; boiled some water in a pot dropped some carrots, added beef broth cube, let the carrot half way done then I added napa cabbage and fine noodles before serving dropped two eggs. That was my first meal today after six hours of duty. So all-in-one carbohaydrates because of noodles, some veggies, and eggs for protein. I ate with some Rye wholecorn crispbread with butter. Eating the same food in the opposite order will not feel better after a meal specially for type 2 diabetes. In my today’s situation in which my meal is all-in-one, I don’t think it is the right way to control my blood sugar levels. Blood sugar normally rises after eating, but for people with diabetes it can spike dangerously.  People who spend longer preparing food are healthier, what I did today was a very quick cooking!  Just to have it fast in my stomach. Take it away from me Folks!
