My noodle plate – iCookiTravel

Noodle plate that was Sunday brunch last week, at home with the kids. Just bought noodles from Turkey Shop near home, they are open on Sundays and Holidays which is unusuall in Vienna. Because on Sundays and holidays all shops and store’s are closed. Cooked with nappa cabbage (Chinakohl), carrots, an organic zucchini from a colleague from her garden and chicken breast sauteed with red onion and garlic seasoned with soy sauce, pepper and chicken broth cube. Served with sliced lemon and buttered toast.

My glas of Beetroots – iCookiTravel

Do you know that drinking beetroots regularly can help or improve diabetes and hypertension?!  I started making juice out of this and drinking every morning with empty stomach before breakfast, hoping that it will help me. Will keep you posted about the result!

Bastardmakrele in german – iCookiTravel

The so called “Bastardmakrele” in german, I don’t know in tagalog but I call it “Horsemackerel” with eggplant, chili, ginger, red onion cooked in vinegar seasoned with salt and pepper. Others says “Pinaksiw” or “Paksiw” and to others “Pinangat” or “Pangat”, what so ever… so freshly cooked from my kitchen bought from Turkey Shop for only 5.99 euro per kilo. That was lunch. Guten Appetit!

Beef Liver with white onion rings – iCookiTravel

A pan fried beef liver with white onion rings seasoned with soy sauce and a little bit of balsamic vinegar just for hubby and me, because our two kids doesn’t eat innards. I ate it with smashed potatoes and cream spinach (not in picture). While hubby had it with rice, what else! Guten Appetit!



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!

Saba – iCookiTravel

Banana- Saba, boiling it for my meal is healthy snack for diabetics. Since a half cup of fruit every dinner is allowable for diabetics, it is perfectly fine to regularly include the saba in one’s meal or diet. One must be noted that the ideal snack for diabetic is the boiled banana saba. Since banana is high in fiber, eating banana is heavy on the belly, it is one way of driving down one’s appetite so that one is prevented from overeating.

Stale Bread – iCookiTravel

What to do with these stale bread or leftover bread and bun?!?!?!

Throwing away food isn’t just a waste of money it is a downright shame. How many of the world’s people don’t have enough to eat?…Anyone here or out there any idea?

Today it’s holiday, celebrating the assumption of the blessed virgin Mary.  But I’m on duty and take note with normal working hours, eight hours duty. But We had fun at work with my colleagues. Sima brought us today some fruits to share with. She came late at work for one hour and I was telling her up to now she ‘s allowed to come late at work as long as she will bring us something to eat just like today. 😀

Sima’s fruits brought at work today! – iCookiTravel

Fruits such as ripe mango, just like our very own Philippine Mangoes , “yung hinog ang tamis-tamis”! Sa akin yung buto na dalawang piraso, (not in picture). Nectarines, Melon or sugar Melon and Grapes. What a great time to spend breaktime at work with colleagues like her. I’m so fortunate indeed! By the way, Sima is from India, not Austrian but living here in vienna for more than a decade too.

From Internet: “Forget five a day, eat 10 portions of fruit and veg to cut risk of early death.” 😀

Man does not live by bread alone. After a while, he needs a drink. Food comes first, then morals.

Not that I cooks badly, but there are continually any pygmies in my kitchen and dip their arrows in the soup. In wine there is truth!
We should leave life like a banquet, neither thirsty nor drunken. Said-Aristoteles 🙂 <<< The seasoning is hunger, hunger is the best sauce. There are diseases that can be cured by proper nutrition, I believe in this! Every woman is susceptible to good food. The men love those women most passionate, who understand how to prefix them the most delicious things. I am one of those women 😉


These are collections of candid photos of our dinner with my colleagues at work- Baxter Austria. Of course with my famous Sotanghon with shrimps and chicken breast and Siopao! 😛
