Starting the first day of “Ber” month with Pinoy food or Filipino cuisine. It is raining outside in the morning it is a little bit gloomy. Typical September weather.

MUNG BEAN (Mungo) with AMPALAYA LEAVES and FRIED DORADO (Sea Bream)-iCookiTravel

For dinner hubby cooked this mung bean or mungo with ampalaya leaves and fried Dorado or Sea bream. I used to eat all ampalaya leaves with mungo and a little bit of brown rice to be exact half a cup only per day, most of the time only whole grain bread. As I’m watching my diabetes and hypertension. Had to be very careful of what am I eating. As we all know, nutrition and physical activity such as sport or gymnastics are important factors of a healthy lifestyle when you have diabetes. Guten Appetit!😋
