Mon 14 May

Mom didn't come home today from opp wet market/HC with any tarpaued food for our lunch
- She just bought $4 worth Sio Bak meant for dinner later
At 11.30am she suddenly told me "Fix your own lunch and I'll just hv some bread later"
But I went on to do HER share for lunch too - I DO NOT want her eating carby BREAD !

I DID the classic SIMPLEST CHEAPEST FASTEST LC MEAL ever
ie Big English Breakast Fry Up for Lunch with healthy cheap Eggs !


Except no BACON as had already ran out much earlier
Also felt 'lazy/not right' to use some of the Sio Bak in lieu of Bacon !
Using cheapo ingredients :
- 1 med Jap zucchini [from batch of 5]
- cherry tomatoes from that $1 Tray
- 2 eggs each x 2 pax
- Balance 6 fresh Shitake mushrooms
- 1 purple onion
- fried in healthy coconut oil
Seasonings : Salt + Black Pepper + Italian Seasoning + light soy sauce

Our Healthy LC Big English Breakfast Lunch !!!!








And for Dinner
I'll finally do up the Shanghai Dumplings even tho' mom keeps forgetting to get me the Spring Onion Chives for inclusion into filling

Have got the $3 Minced Pork thawing away now - once thawed will do some simple marination with Shaoxing Wine-Sesame Oil-light soy sauce ...
Have already prepped & choppd up the :
- going-to-go-bad Jap Beech Mushrooms
- water chestnuts for that necessary crunch
- purple onion [in lieu of the Spring Onion Chives]
Pretty LC these Shanghai Dumplings as low carbs in the dough wrapper only
Will do up my yummy Black Vinegar Ginger Dip here !
Frozen Minced Pork thawing away
jobless and dependent on mom, still can eat such good food...

buey pai leh... i also want to be a thick skinned leech.

There's a way to keep the meatballs in shape and shape them. My father always make meatballs soup without the meatballs going haywire. Only once in a blue moon then make dumplings.
The "secret" ingredient for the meatballs to stay in shape is a really common item, so common I believe every household has it.

The pork rib fats to me are healthy good fats
simply fat present in food - not as if ADDED extra fats there etc
This is qhat happens when you sprout **** with your shallowed-mindedness. You simply see the surface and don't dig deeper up the process line.

Those fats you claim is healthy, aren't really healthy. Source matters.

Couldn't do another 24 hr fast today like on Tues
As suddenly felt hungry on reaching home from the spa after my double sessions ...

So no choice but to whip up my classic LC 2 egg-fry with the last of the 70c lettuce + some cherry tomatoes n a bit of the 1st Avocado of 3 bought last Fri - still not that ripe yet as still kinda hard ..
Knew if I didn't do that then the yummy Beef Horfun from Mongkok Dim sum won't be enough for our dinner later if I tauchiak from it !!!


[Non-LC yummy Beef Horfun for dinner later with lots of wok hei]

Well for many years I was the sole breadwinner & I was the one who paid solely for the 15-yr HDB loan too

Actually it's all a matter of mutual support & understanding etc
When I'm down n you hv the means then you carry the burden & vice versa etc

When I was contemplating self-bankruptcy
After my CFD trading capital virtually wiped out after some bad moves
And knowing the sheer impossibility of a good job at my age etc
I'd discussed things with mom - if don't support you then support who etc ???
and she'd agreed to support me etc as it'll only be a matter of several years
before I hit Age 65 and receive my Monthly CPF Pay-outs - for some independence once again
BUT with her dementia she's 'forgotten' this and became difficult at times here

Leeching ???
If you say so lor
Whatever makes you happy

Mom can clearly afford better quality food
It's up to me now to 'coax/force' her into Better Food Buys etc
so that I can cook up those 'good food' for BOTH our enjoyment
as she's now forgotten n rather 'lazy' to do the more-complicating less-than-simple recipes etc
- I let her be - so she cooks when she wants to etc ...
I keep telling her I prefer that she spends the bulk of the money during her life-span rather than being extra thrifty as no point leaving most of the $$ to me later instead when we/I will have less benefit in spending the $$ then
Might as well MAX the enjoyment earlier while we STILL can enjoy such (food)
Akin to Travelling All Over when we are still able to walk/see/enjoy doing so

It increases yr triglycerides and increases yr risk of pancreatitis. High Tgl often comes with DM.

Saturated Fat is Excellent for Cooking and Foods That Are High in it Tend to be Healthy and Nutritious

Saturated fat has some important beneficial aspects that are rarely mentioned.

For example, saturated fats are excellent for cooking. Because they have no double bonds, they are highly resistant to heat-induced damage (49).

Polyunsaturated fats, on the other hand, easily oxidize when they're heated (50).

For this reason, coconut oil, lard and butter are all excellent choices for cooking, especially for high-heat cooking methods like frying.

Foods that are naturally high in saturated fat also tend to be healthy and nutritious, as long as you're eating quality unprocessed foods.

These include naturally fed/raised meats, dairy products from grass-fed cows, dark chocolate and coconuts.


BOTTOM LINE:
Saturated fats are excellent cooking fats and foods that are high in saturated fat tend to be both healthy and nutritious.


Blaming New Health Problems on Old Foods Doesn't Make Sense

The health authorities have spent an immense amount of resources studying the link between saturated fat and heart disease.

Despite thousands of scientists, decades of work and billions of dollars spent, this hypothesis still hasn't been supported by any good evidence.

The saturated fat myth wasn't proven in the past, isn't proven today and never will be proven... because it's just flat out wrong.

Not only is this myth NOT supported by scientific evidence, it is easily refuted with some plain common sense...

Humans and pre-humans have been eating saturated fat for hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of years, but the heart disease epidemic started a hundred years ago.

Blaming new health problems on old foods just doesn't make sense.

6. Foods With Saturated Fats Are Nutritious

There are many healthy foods that are naturally rich in saturated fat. These foods tend to be highly nutritious and contain an abundance of fat soluble vitamins.

Prime examples are meats, eggs, organs and high-fat dairy products. The key here is to eat animals that ate foods that were natural to them, such as grass-fed cows.

Grass-fed beef, pastured eggs and dairy from grass-fed cows are much more nutritious than their "conventionally" raised counterparts. They are especially rich in fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, E and K2 (17, 18, 19, 20, 21).

BOTTOM LINE:
Natural foods that contain saturated fats are usually very nutritious and especially rich in fat soluble vitamins.


There are many other sources saying Pork Fat such as lard etc as being healthy & bacon is ubiquitous in any LCHF woe too .... just not bothered to go dig these up

Asiaone also reported - Pork Fat Ranked Among Top 10 Most Nutritious Foods. http://www.asiaone.com/health/pork-f...s-foods-report

Article says that pork fat contains oleic acid with 60% monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated oleic acid has been found to be good for the heart, arteries and skin, and also helps to regulate hormones ... But as with many things, moderation is key.

Just completed making my very simple Pickled Zucchini !!!

While boiling the White Vinegar (1/2mug) + water (1/2" mug) + 1.5 tsp sugar (I actually didn't want to add any sugar but mom insisted otherwise too sour) I prepped the 4 Jap mini zucchini - each cut into 3 sections then 6 = 18 pcs n removed seedy core before salting with 1 tsp salt for 15-20 mins to remove water then rinsing off

All these fitted well into a Nescafe glass bottle - will leave it to pickle for couple days in fridge before eating them !






When serving if desired can add some Sng Buay (plum) meat for different flavours too

Ya me too - I prefer Seah's simple peppery version over those more-pricey Herbal ones
The herbal ones like heavier flavour somehow

Think my rare BKT was done long ago last year 2x ??

Must check my Home Cooking thread for the recipes
I did the yummy yellow Radish Daikon Danmuji too
going to finish up & need to do a fresh batch soon

But just the other day came across a version WITHOUT using any sugar
Think I posted in the Home Cooking thread ....

A Low Carb Diet Meal Plan and Menu That Can Save Your Life

The Basics

Eat: Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, high-fat dairy, fats, healthy oils and maybe even some tubers and non-gluten grains.

Don't Eat: Sugar, HFCS, wheat, seed oils, trans fats, "diet" and low-fat products and highly processed foods.


Foods to Avoid

You should avoid these 7 foods, in order of importance:

1 Sugar: Soft drinks, fruit juices, agave, candy, ice cream and many others.

2 Gluten Grains: Wheat, spelt, barley and rye. Includes breads and pastas.

3 Trans Fats: "Hydrogenated" or "partially hydrogenated" oils.

4 High Omega-6 Seed- and Vegetable Oils: Cottonseed-, soybean-, sunflower-, grapeseed-, corn-, safflower and canola oils.

5 Artificial Sweeteners: Aspartame, Saccharin, Sucralose, Cyclamates and Acesulfame Potassium. Use Stevia instead.

6 "Diet" and "Low-Fat" Products: Many dairy products, cereals, crackers, etc.

7 Highly Processed Foods: If it looks like it was made in a factory, don't eat it.

You MUST read ingredients lists, even on foods labelled as "health foods."


Low Carb Food List - Foods to Eat

You should base your diet on these real, unprocessed, low-carb foods.

Meat: Beef, lamb, pork, chicken and others. Grass-fed is best.

Fish: Salmon, trout, haddock and many others. Wild-caught fish is best.

Eggs: Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs are best.

Vegetables: Spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and many others.

Fruits: Apples, oranges, pears, blueberries, strawberries.

Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.

High-Fat Dairy: Cheese, butter, heavy cream, yogurt.

Fats and Oils: Coconut oil, butter, lard, olive oil and cod fish liver oil.

If you need to lose weight, be careful with the cheese and nuts because they’re easy to overeat on. Don’t eat more than one piece of fruit per day

The dominant fat in 'bad' lard is monounsaturated oleic acid (45%) --
is also the dominant fat in 'good' avocado (65%).
