What Are Food Allergy, Intolerance, and Poisoning?

So you went on a great weekend out with friends (within the rule of six, plenty of social distancing, and with masks on because you and your friends are decent people…). You guys went to a fancy restaurant, and had an awesome dining experience. The dishes were not only pretty and instagramable, but also very very tasty… But on your way home you felt a bit sick. Something is not right. And you suspected that it was something on your…

How Do You Say No?

How Do You Say No?

Alrighty… today I need some help. I have this teeny tiny little problem with saying ‘no’ especially at work, and as much as it doesn’t affect my job too much… sometimes it just went really bad with my meal plan. How so? As some of you probably have heard, I am working as a chef. One of the perks by working around food is obviously the ability to have nice food within the reach. However if you want to control…

The Importance of Being Colourful

As you are trying to balance your diet and your meal planning, you often heard the advice of “Eat Your Greens”. Greens are obviously good. Nobody denies the goodness of kale, broccoli, and spinach. Plus, they’re usually low in calorie content, so of course pile away. But green is not the only colour you would like to have in your plate. It has not been easy to do, but I do try to eat my rainbow. It’s not always successful,…

The Importance of Snacking

The Importance of Snacking

My sisters did not believe me when I said I still eat crisps and biscuits when I was losing weight. I think if I don’t have a room for a snack or two, I am planning my meal wrong. Personally, I think snacking is just as important as the main meal itself. When you are changing your eating behaviour, especially when you are trying to lose weight, you will be hungry. Of course you will, because you are practically eating…

Weigh In Wednesday (week 2)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 2)

Ugh… I woke up feeling incredibly bloated, and I am not feeling very well. I checked my Clue, and it is definitely not a very good time to do a weigh in. However, for the sake of consistency, let’s just pretend that menstrual cycle have nothing to do with it. So… This week has been quite testing because it was my first week doing this while working.

The Importance of A Good Kitchen Scale

The Importance of A Good Kitchen Scale

I’ve been unfairly accused that my affinity towards a good kitchen scale is influenced by my current profession as a chef. Although it is true that having an accurate kitchen scale is invaluable in the kitchen, it is also very important when you are trying to lose weight. Kitchen scale offers you an accurate measurement when you want to properly count your calories intake. Why not using cups? Well… volume based measurement for dry ingredients is notorious for being inaccurate….
