11 Easy Tips For Healthier Meals

Trust me, eating healthier meals can be easy. More so, if you're cooking at home. That's because it's one of the best things you can do to get healthy- you're in full control of what goes into your food, and how you prepare it, and that's most important. So don't simply give up your indulgences or stick to the same ‘clean’ foods. There are many ways to tweak your favourite recipes to make them more nutritious for your everyday diet- here are my 11 Easy Tips For Healthier Meals.

The Family Table

More people means more food, and here’s how you make for memorable and tastier family get-togethers with popular family recipes from Asian Food Network. Add flavors to the memories of sharing, loving, fighting, laughing, and making up with family. Spend less time worrying about what to make, and more time bonding with the ones you don’t treasure enough.

 

Chinese

Chinese Red Bean Pancakes

Picture this -crispy, golden crepe enveloping a sheet of warm, velvety red bean paste. It is the perfect dessert, originating from China, and a must-have item in any authentic Chinese restaurant. It is made from the simplest of ingredients–some flour, sesame oil, and red bean paste (homemade or canned works) –and unlike many desserts, takes no time to prepare. For some colour and added sweetness, dust icing sugar on the pancakes!

Butterfly Pea Cauliflower Nasi Lemak

Ever heard of keto-friendly nasi lemak? Well, the unofficial Malaysian national dish is now that, in a brilliant blue. Crumbed cauliflower substitutes rice to give the dish a natural sweetness, infused with creamy coconut and aromatic pandan. Dig also into tender chicken sizzled in tumeric, tangy mustard and salt. And for a true-blue nasi lemak experience, add sambal, lots of it. You can also replace chicken with sambal squid.

Stuffed Tofu Pok

You might love it when drenched in hot coconut laksa. But here, tofu puffs are deep-fried and potato stuffed, and you might love it too. A plate of tofu puffs are first emptied of tofu, then stuffed with a creamy, savoury mixture of mashed potato, rich eggs and soft tofu. Try it, it’s a mix cooked in culinary heaven.

Thai Pork Dumplings

If you enjoy Chinese Dumpling Soup (or Wonton Soup), you will enjoy its distant cousin –the Thai Pork Dumpling Soup! This soup is full of Thai flavors like lemongrass and fish sauce, with dumplings floating in a hearty chicken soup so juicy that they will knock your socks off. Finish the soup with a handful of sliced scallions and cilantro leaves!

Low on Carbs

Yummy without the tummy. The most delicious and keto-friendly ways to cut carbs. Healthier eating is a lot easier when it is delicious. Asian Food Network offers for the health conscious a buffet of options that help you cut calories and increase flavor.

Seafood

Steamed Egg with Prawns

Known as ‘steamed water egg’ in Hong Kong, this classic Chinese dish with prawns and black fungus is a soft, silky comfort food.

Southern Filipino Comfort: Law-Uy is Soup for the Soul

Originating from Mindanao, or Southern Philippines, the Law-Uy is a soup you need when your soul needs a hug. It is unique in its flavor and appearance -a soup of lemongrass with brightly coloured vegetables and topped with fish slices. For an extra pow, we recommend a touch of fish sauce to taste.

Three Cup Chicken

Three cup chicken is a 'MUST HAVE' whenever you visit any Tze Char store. Broken down into three simple steps, you can get it all done within 35 minutes! Not only is the recipe easy to follow, but it also gives off an authentic and homely taste.
