I recently went for my 1st full medical check up and got my results back today.Waiting anxiously for the blood test result, fidgeting away because at the back of my mind I know I have not been watching my diet since Christmas holidays last year and followed so ever closely by the Chinese New Year eating spree.One thing I know, when Malaysians eat, Â they really eat. The PLUS point of living in Malaysia is . . . . There is never short of good delicious food. Most people in other countries eat 3 to 4 times a day, Malaysians tuck in a good 6 hearty meals a day. Go figure.
This takes me back to what I was trying to convey before I got carried away again with food. Listening attentively to what my doctor was explaining to me, I squirmed when she mentioned Cholesterol level ……….. Very …… Good. I said, “Say again?” The truth was, I was expecting my Cholesterol level to be soaring high since I love my curries, beef steaks, peanuts with cold beer, pork belly etc…. My mind just went straight back to my main cooking ingredients! OLIVE OIL, GRAPESEED OIL and SEA SALT. I have been cooking with these 3 wonderful ingredients since 1993. I believe they contributed to my 4.9 reading. What other better way to eat but to eat wisely. Here’s to 2012! Please don’t forget to thank God for His providence.
