🇪🇺🇵🇭WHAT‘S ON THE TABLE

Throwback, some of my home food prepping during the time my cousin Gie and her son was with us. During their Europe vacation.

That was linner, the first meal I prepared for my cousin Gie and her son. Oven trout, salad, Sarma ( stuffed cabbage), and knuckle of pork (Stelze) and because we are Filipinos rice is a must!

Here again brekky with boiled Frankfurter, toast bread, strawberry in sour cream, coffee and tea. The time my cousin Gie and her son took their vacation in Vienna. Of course my doggy Mary and Riyad also on the picture.

My spaghetti requested by Noah, Gie’s son (cousin). Bolognese is the sauce I made for them with grana padano cheese plus salad and sliced apples. Someone requested for coffee and tea too.

Food memories brekky a la Pinoy (Filipino) too heavy never again! Imagine; fried rice, longganisa, fried tuyo, scrambled eggs, sunny side egg, and for dipping vinegar with chili spicy of course plus tea and coffee Jesus Christ! What unhealthy life style never again!

🇵🇭BRUNCH OUT of LEFTOVERS

Brown rice is perfectly safe to eat in moderation they said if you have diabetes. It‘s high in carbs but it’s fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals they said may improve blood sugar control. Talking about leftovers, no leftovers should survive in your fridge after 7 days. This homemade crispy deep fried fish balls was in my freezer before. Typical Filipino food which from time to time I need to have it.

SEABREAM or DORADO iCookiTravel

TUMERIC- comes from ginger root, this spice could help treat diabetes, stabilize blood sugar levels according to research.

Sea bream belongs to white fish, which is a good source of iron and calcium and has a higher fat content  as you could sea in soup, considered a valuable source of omega 3 fat. Can help to lower blood pressure, again for hypertension.

Oatmeal – iCookiTravel

Today’s breakfast, oatmeal with sliced apple, wild cranberry, cinnamon, yoghurt, and honey.
Oatmeal has a positive effect on blood sugar levels. Oats slimy the digested food in the intestine, making it thicker and therefore delays the absorption of sugar. This can help you lose weight, but also in diabetes, according to a study, Oatmeal are also suitable for protecting people who are at higher risk for diabetes just like me. The food industry now offers many finished products from oatmeal. However, changes with increasing processing the content of nutrients and fiber. Therefore: If someone wants to enjoy the benefits of oats, then he should prefer a little as possible processed source. Oatmeal are always made from whole grains. Whether oatmeal, oat bran or oats does not make much difference. Oats can be easily integrated into everyday life. As muesli for breakfast, as a soup at lunch, as an intermediate trunk or warm porridge in the evening. Good morning, guten appetit! 🙂

GUYABANO
GUYABANO

Thank you BFF for this Sweet “Guyabano” you brought me yesterday was a Baby Guyabano. My first time to eat guyabano in Vienna for such a long time of staying here. Guyabano is 10,000x more effective than chemotherapy! This phrase is not mine but it is the testimony of a very interesting report on the effect of Guyabano is also described here why nobody knows about it. Attacked the cancer effectively without causing nausea, weight loss, or hair loss, protects and strengthens the immune system and makes it more resistant to infections.

BRUSSEL SPROUTS
BRUSSEL SPROUTS

Boiled Brussel sprouts with Butter for my dinner. The leafy green vegetables are look like miniature cabbages. Raw Brussels sprouts contain excellent levels of vitamin C and vitamin K, with more moderate amounts of vitamin B. I use to steam it or sometimes drop in a pot of boiling water with salt. Then drained and eat with a bit of melted butter.

PURE VEGGIES

FROM FARM TO MY KITCHEN

Back to the roots! 🙂
The idea to build a show garden vegetables, arose because many people due to the increasing industrialization can not remember how to thrive various vegetables and taste freshly harvested.

image_01

Just like what you see here above photo, from farm to my kitchen-freshly cooked vegetables. Which varieties when and how grown, is no longer belongs to the life experience of the younger generation today. I am so thankful that I was given a chance to show it to my two kids specially to my daughter. With the help of my hubby was an experinced for our daughter too. Seasonal fruits and vegetables provide throughout the year for natural variation in the diet. The fruit and vegetable season calendar you know in which months which varieties are ripe and are offered regionally. I’m always amazed at what in our latitudes everything grows and thrives specially here in europe. The seasonal calendar is based on the relevant month currently ripe fruit and vegetables from Austria. Goods unheated greenhouses and polytunnels in off-peak times as well as Austrian stock items. The time data can be shifted due to the weather for a few weeks .
The natural use of ingredients, their processing and preparation, you can change your eating habits for the better in the long term. Thus, for example in a simple manner lowered the fat content, reduced the salt content or hard A compatible be avoided. Cooking is fun and you will taste the difference! Take it away from me Folks 😉 Happy Cooking!
