I mentioned in my previous post that I will be posting a simple, easy and healthy dish. Here I come!….*smiles*. Eating healthy does not require a whole day in the kitchen. If that is the case, I would rather eat all the unhealthy stuff…..*wink*. Or maybe just drink…..hehe. Eating healthy also doesn’t cost a lot of money either. I think it’s actually cheaper and more relaxing to eat healthy food.

As much as I love my salads, I also love quick vegetable stir fries. Very often I just have a plate of vegetable stir fry for lunch. It’s quite filling on its own. If I want more, I’ll have some fruits too. You can go wild with different types of vegetables. This is even good for vegetarians.

But for a very quick one, use leafy vegetables. See how healthy and beautiful they look!

Mushrooms and tomatoes

I love mushrooms and tomatoes, so I love to add them too. Bright coloured red baby tomatoes add colour to the dish too.

Bragg's apple cider vinegar and liquid amino

The best seasoning that I love and use is Bragg’s Liquid Amino. I am just so glad that I can find it here in UK. I used a lot when I was back in Malaysia. It’s a very good seasoning to replace soya sauce and salt. For those who wish to cut down on salt intake, especially those with high blood pressure, you may want to go for this one. It tastes really good added to any dish. However, you can’t get this in normal shops here. You need to order it online. But in Malaysia, it is sold in health shops and even in supermarkets. You can read more about its benefits at their website at Bragg Liquid Aminos.

The other Bragg’s product that I used is Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. The quality is just superb. Mixed with raw honey, it makes a great cocktail drink that is very beneficial for health. Both are pricey compared to the normal supermarket ones but they are worth every penny. However, it’s rather disappointing to know that the price in Malaysia is way lot cheaper than the price here. Well, just need to be thankful that I can actually get them here.

Here’s my simple vegetable stir fry . I don’t state the amount of ingredients used because you can add whatever amount of the various types of vegetables.

Ingredients
baby tomatoes (washed and cut into half)
ready washed leafy salad
spring onions (washed and cut)
chestnut mushrooms (sliced)
eggs (beaten)
olive oil
Bragg’s liquid amino

Fry mushrooms and spring onions

Fry mushrooms and spring onions

Heat up a frying pan. Add the sliced mushrooms and spring onions. Mushrooms give off water when you fry them so don’t add other vegetables first. Dry fry till they are a little cooked. You may wonder why I don’t add oil. The main reason is that I don’t like a greasy kitchen. Secondly, I prefer not to heat up the oil too much in order to retain it’s health value.

Give a quick stir. Add the beaten eggs and some Bragg’s liquid amino to taste. Enjoy.

My family likes this simple vegetable dish. My youngest girl is very picky on vegetables. She doesn’t like mushrooms so she will leave behind all the mushrooms for me…..happy mommy…*grin*.

This is also a nice meal to have before my badminton, something light and easy to digest.

So, if you want to eat healthy and also want it stress free, go for this one. Most of my meals are very simple, easy and healthy. It’s something that my girls can easily pick up and cook for themselves when mommy is too busy.

My eldest daughter is trying to eat very healthy these days. All my effort pays off at least…..phew…what a huge relief! My youngest girl is also trying. At least she has cut down a LOT on junk food lately…..huge sigh of relief….*big smiles*. Every now and then I raid her room for junk food and into the bin all of them will go….*grin*. She’ll be disappointed but she knows who the big culprit is….hehe.

Look at these food that my eldest girl cooked. See the amount of vegetables she added! I think she is getting more health conscious than me now! No complains from me…hehe. Actually all the 3 plates here tasted very delicious…..*big smiles*. My proudest moments are when my girls learn to cook and bake….*big smiles*.

Now, how is your cooking getting along? I do hope you are enjoying your cooking and baking. And don’t forget, exercise is an important part of healthy living. Find one exercise that you enjoy and you will be sure to stay on it for a long, long time. You need to start somewhere if you have not. I started badminton about 4 years ago and have loved it ever since. I have met several friends who are in their 60s and are still playing badminton. They look healthy, vibrant and  very alert. That’s totally inspiring!

But if you love to work out in the gym, do go for it. As for me, I know I will never survive in the gym. I kept looking at my watch!….haha. It’s just too boring for me. If I ever pick up a second sport, I would go for squash or tennis. Looks like I love racket games…*big smiles*.

And even if you are sick, you can go for some very light exercise to start off, like slow bouncing on the rebounder. A friend of mine was actually very sick but she started off walking and slowly jogging. She actually jogged herself to good health eventually and is still jogging to this day. Just remember never to overdo it. Know your own limit. Check it out with your doctor if you are not sure.

Do hope you have  great week and see you in my next post.

Quote of the day…..

“Everything you want should be yours: the type of work you want; the relationships you need; the social, mental, and aesthetic stimulation that will make you happy and fulfilled; the money you require for the lifestyle that is appropriate to you; and any requirement that you may (or may not) have for achievement or service to others. If you don’t aim for it all, you’ll never get it all. To aim for it requires that you know what you want.”

No wonder the bottles look familiar….. I’m using their Apple Cidar. Hahaha! But I’ve not heard of Bragg Liquid Aminos. Mmmm…. wonder how the taste is like. Nice & healthy dish, Mary!

Mistletoe Tattoo ;)  on March 14th, 2012

Love love love all the veggies, Mary! I’d definitely have no troubles eating all those dishes. Wanna hear something strange? I don’t like raw tomatoes, but I enjoy cooked tomatoes. Don’t ask me why, I have no explanation. Haha. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that Bragg seasoning here. Will have to look for it next time I’m out shopping.

Well done to Stripy on those three dishes!!! They look really yummy! I can’t believe I’ve never tried any of her cooking before. Need to make a trip out there again soon.
And poor little dynamite…but I have to admit, I had a good laugh reading the part about you raiding her room for junk food. Lol! I think she needs to hide it in YOUR room. Would be the last place you look. HAHAHA! Ok better go before I cause any more trouble. Big hugs!!!
