Thai Style Kelp Noodle Salad

I first heard about Kelp noodles from my raw food teacher Daniw Arrazola. It was the ‘noodle’ ingredient in the raw noodle recipe that she taught, but Fine Organic Gallery that sold it ran out of stock. Luck was not on my side after a couple of times of dropping by that shop, but it never occur to me to pre-order it as it wasn’t something I urgently wanted to try. Continue Reading →

Sweet sour sticky Honey Lemon Chicken without the mess of deep frying. Delicious, easy & healthy weekday meal

Pan-fried Honey Lemon Chicken

Honey chicken is apparently a very popular Chinese restaurant dish in the West, as well as a popular take-out meal. Another similar chicken recipe created by the West is Lemon Chicken. Both dishes are deep fried and coated with delicious sticky sauce. However both dishes did not originate from China, as honey or lemon ingredient is not common in traditional Chinese cooking, but they are nonetheless delicious. Continue Reading →

Green Mango with Fish Sauce

Being a fruit fiend, I would feel strange if I don’t get my daily dose of fruits. Though I can’t quite remember how I got through a whole month without fruits during my candida detox 3 years ago. At the beginning of my recent Europe trip, I was totally ecstatic with the abundance summer fruits. However towards the end of the 2 months, I can hardly believe I had an overdose of the luscious summer berries and stone fruits. Day after day at the fruit stall or grocer, the options are mostly cherries, berries, plums, peaches, nectarines and grapes. I remember saying out loud one day: “Oh no, strawberries again”.

Three Cup Chicken (San Bei Ji 三杯鸡)

I’ve returned from my long vacation, gleeful to find my edible plants have thrived under CM’s (my elder sis) care. She’s indeed a great plant-sitter this time, and she seemed to have developed a fondness for them from the way she speaks about them. Yay! Another happy plant mama in the making. 🙂 Continue Reading →
