I recently got interested into this ‘healthy eating’ stuffs after a visit to the doctor.Ã‚ Well, I do know about healthy eating but heh, one tends to push it off to the back of the mind when there are so many good foods around.Ã‚ But on second thought, I think it will be good, fun and a challenge to dish out these so-called healthy eating meals.Ã‚ I want to test if really healthy eating goes hand-in-hand with good food.
So, today, I dished out my lunch based on something I read from the latest health news about walnuts being good for the heart.
A team from Barcelona’s Hospital Clinico recommend eating around eight walnuts a day.
The study, which appears in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, also showed walnuts had more health benefits than olive oil. (full news from BBC)
Here it is, my salad of walnuts, celery, tomatoes, apple, penne (pasta) and raisins.Ã‚ Eat it while watching TV ain’t so bad after all!Ã‚ Crunchy, crispy, sweet and most of all, it is something new to me.
I made the dressings myself.Ã‚ I mix a tiny glass bottle of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, hot mustard powder (it is a yellowish powder, just like mustard but in powder form), chopped garlic, salt and pepper.Ã‚ Give the bottle a good shake to make the contents mix well.
Hahaha, let’s see how long I can last with these sort of foods.Ã‚ Of course, I am not going on a ‘do or die’ crusade to eat just foods like these.Ã‚ I will still pig out on normal foods but work hard to incorporate healthy eating lifestyle.Ã‚ Duh, the name ‘healthy eating’ is so cliche, no?Ã‚ And don’t worry, yummy foods will still be posted because my kids still eat regular foods, ok?
