How to choose and cook Chinese leafy vegetables

For two years now I have been living in Singapore, and although the life of expats here is quite isolated, you can learn a lot about the local traditions, culture and cuisine if you wish. As you can imagine, it is the food that I study with particular zeal, and today I decided to talk about such a category of plants as green leafy vegetables.

Chinese leafy vegetables are not only very rich in nutrients, but also able to diversify your diet and taste experience. Some of them can be found in most supermarkets and cooked by yourself, others are easier to order in Asian restaurants. These simple rules will help you choose and cook Chinese leafy vegetables:

Cut off the ends of the stems and cut off the damaged or yellowed leaves.
Wash, wash and wash again! So you remove the remaining fertilizer. Continue reading

What foods really improve intestinal microflora?

Microbiome – a community of diverse bacteria that live in our intestines – has long been a hot issue of a healthy lifestyle. I am very interested in this topic and recently I found an article that may be useful to us all. I offer its translation to your attention.

Scientists are trying to figure out how a microbiome can affect our health, weight, mood, skin, and the ability to resist infection.

Fish in the children’s diet

Fish and seafood are an important component of the diet of my sons. Why and what kind of fish is useful, I tell below.

First of all, not all fish is useful: many common types of fish sold in our stores and markets are not entirely safe for health, especially for children. I want to immediately draw your attention to this! What kind of fish is better to choose, I will tell further, but for now briefly list why a child should eat fish at all:

1. Omega-3. These are fatty acids that are necessary for the functioning of our body. You can get them from food and their content is famous fish. Omega-3 is a structural component of cell membranes, and a variety of body processes depend on the properties of the membranes: the transition of signals from one nerve cell to another, the efficiency of organs such as the brain, heart, eyes. For example, omega-3 fatty acids help establish a connection between brain cells, which makes it easier to learn new things and helps to avoid depressive states. Continue reading
