This is my first attempt at Fried Radish Cake. We called it 炒萝卜糕 or in Teochew 菜头粿. I followed the recipe here. Without the Chinese sausages, preserved radish and shrimps in this particular dish. I used mushrooms and daikon (radish) only.
Ever feel bored with what you are eating? You are not alone.
Even the most creative among us sometimes fall into a slump regarding what we
make. If you are interested in boosting your daily nutrition with healthy
alternatives, then you are in luck. You may want to consider our following list
of delicious smoothies. Designed to be both delicious and healthy. Each recipe
has its own benefits to help satisfy those naughty cravings, while also providing
the right kind of nutrients to help tone muscle and lose weight.
1. Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie
It doesn’t get much better than a chocolate strawberry
smoothie. With that in mind, we begin our list of 3 weight loss smoothie
recipes with one that is sure to please. The chocolate strawberry smoothie
blast uses a small hand-full of chocolate, a cup of strawberries, 30 grams of Optimum
Nutrition 100% whey (or alternatively a 30 gram scoop from one of these whey
supplements) and 2 table spoons of chia seeds, to create something that is
truly out of this world. What you get when you blend all of these ingredients, is
a ton of flavor without the same calories that you would get with a milkshake
or something far heavier. Give it a try and see for yourself!
2. Green Blast
While chocolate strawberry smoothie has a lot of flavor,
green blast provides an equal measure of nutrition. Made with a blend of half a
cup of spinach, a hand full of white beans, ice, and a cup of soy milk, you get
a significant amount of iron in a creamy and sweet combination. If you need to
substitute a meal with a smoothie, then go with the Green Blast. Along with
reducing the amount of calories you are consuming, you get a nutritious and
tasty meal that you can take with you on the go.
3. Berry Beets
A combination of several different kinds of berries along
with beets, you get a lot of flavor, a lot of nutrition, and very little in
terms of calories. Helping you to look good on the outside, the berry beets
smoothie is another great thing to take with you on the road. It is great for
those who love sweeter things, and its natural ingredients help to cleanse and
beautify your skin. Consider one of these a week and be amazed at how filling
and beneficial it is for you. Simply take half a cup of frozen
blue berries mixed with raspberries, 3 slices of beetroot, a cup of ice and a
cup of almond milk. Blend for 30 seconds and enjoy!
Along with these three that we prefer the most, there are
many that were very close to making the list but just fell a little short. Some
popular runners up include Papaya ginger smoothies, ginger and berry smoothies
with oats, banana kale smoothies, Mood boosting blueberry smoothies, and
vanilla spinach smoothies. Do yourself a favor and experiment a little with
these ingredients and you will be amazed at what you can come up with.
