👩‍🍳How healthy is pointed cabbage? In german “Spitzkraut” or in Tagalog “matulis na repolyo”. Healthy and low in calories. Since it contains a lot of fibre, it stimulates digestion. In addition, pointed cabbage contains a lot of so-called ascorbigen, which is converted into vitamin C during cooking. With only 20 kilocalories per 100 grams, it is also – like all types of cabbage – very low in calories. The reason why we love this type of cabbage here. Especially, my hubby, use add it in “Bulalo”, “Nilagang Karne” (Boiled Meat) or even in “sinigang na buto-buto” (Bones in sour soup). Me I love to make a salad out of it during summertime. Pointed cabbage is related to white cabbage but tastes much better. It owes its name to its shape the pointed cabbage grows pointed at the top. Today I added to glass noodle or Sotanghon mix with Udon noodle Japanese style.



👩‍🍳The traditional SOPAS in the Philippines it’s a soup made with pasta, meat, vegetables and milk. Every Filipino child most likely has been exposed to chicken SOPAS. But mine is something recreation from my mother’s SOPAS. Spiral pasta, and cabbage is the main and the vegetable broth not the SOPAS you know from Philippines with milk. Added the last hotdog which was leftover from today’s brekky, ground pork meat, chicken breast fillet, carrot and cilantro that makes the soup taste better. Served with flatbread. Have a try with this version and tell me. Happy Prepping and Guten Appetit!

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.


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 .

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!

Sardinas at Repolyo

When the refrigerator has been emptied and all fresh produce have been consumed, it’s time to break into the canned goods. This is my favorite, and to this day, I keep at least a couple of cans in the cupboard at all times. Ligo sardines, of course!
I remember those days in the Philippines…..My family didnt have much money when I was growing up and my mom would have to cook what suited our budget and sure enough, due to lack of money, this dish came up on our menu quite often. She added with misua most of the time, or even with pansit.
