What do you think is the worst food to avoid at all times?
Is it pork Chicharon, Lechon, Mc Donalds, Chips with gravy, Ice cream, Coca Cola, chocolate?
My reply to this question is NOPE! Although all of these foods are ‘bad foods’ for healthy Diet, they are not the WORST! The worst food is the one that YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO STOP EATING......until you get sick and nauseated. What are yours dear readers? Mine is the NESTLE CRUNCH CHOCOLATE and MACADEMIA NUTS. Oh no, l do not like to hear about it at this time when l have some cravings . Okay l will go to the fridge and eat carrots instead.
I am a Dietitian and yet l cannot help myself....It is really hard to practise what you preach. I come up with excuses like l deserve to eat these because l have accomplished so much today and l need to be REWARDED. I come up with other excuses like.....’oh nevermind i will exercise tomorrow or will not eat later and skip my dinner which never happens afterall....l get hungry and eat before retiring to bed alright.
The key to getting (and keeping a flat belly) is recognizing these trigger foods and keeping them OUT OF YOUR HOUSE, OUT OF YOUR SIGHT, OUT OF YOUR MIND and OUT OF YOUR WORLD!
This tip alone can save you thousands of calories every week.
So today’s take home assignment to you my dear readers to my column ‘Cooking with Neria’ is this: make a list of your top three trigger foods and put a devil sign on it and paste it in your mirror.
We are doing this because we really want to achieve a FLAT BELLY isn’t?.....Yeah reducing belly fat..... but what else is there to do and how? You will be happy to know that there’s a brand new way to burn belly fat that has been shown in more than a DOZEN research studies to help you burn fat and slim your waist at an accelerated rate.
In fact, one breakthrough study showed that those who performed this belly-burning trick just twice daily burned 400% more fat than those who didn’t. The trick is raising your legs while sitting down, compressing your belly for 1 minute at a time. Do it 10 times. Not hard but needs stamina to raise your leg and let it stay hanging in the air for one minute. Needs discipline as well. You get tiring legs at the start. In a month time you will see result.
No need to go to the gym and go on strict dieting. See you all soon with a flab belly.
Seafood Cookery by Ely Bonner
Rainbow trout is a prized game and tasty fish. There are several species and often times hard to classify due the variation in colours and habits. Another factor in the confusion is the practise of hybridization as usually trouts are raised in hatcheries and later transferred to fish farms where they grow to maturity. A common specie is the rainbow trout. It is a brightly coloured fish with dark spots and a reddish stripe lengthwise along its sides. It is a fresh water fish with soft, white to pink flesh, It can be baked, barbecued, grill, pan-fry or poach. My favourite way of cooking is to bake it with stuffing of chopped onion and tomatoes.
1 medium size rainbow trout, gutted and cleaned
1 medium size onion, chopped
2-3 ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
2. Line a shallow baking pan with sufficient aluminium foil to wrap the fish around. Place the fish in the centre and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt and a dash of ground pepper.
3. Heat oil in a small pot and add chopped onion and tomatoes; season to taste.
4. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes (no longer).
5. Stuffed the fish with the hot onion and tomato mixture.
6. Wrap the fish with the foil and fold the edges tightly.
7. Bake for 30 minutes. Test if it’s done by inserting a fork to the flesh. If it flakes the fish is cooked.
Note: I should have known that it was the time, 21 years ago, when PCHN started. It was the time when my beautiful orchids were in full bloom and so they are now.
CONGRATULATIONS PCHN ! ! !
