PREPPING MY KIND of BREAKY

My kind of breakfast before I go to work, from day to day it varies according what I have in refrigerator. If not just an oatmeal with some berries, honey, 1 percent fat yogurt and chia seeds.  Today is something special for me, for you maybe it is just a little thing, but this little thing makes me happy and feel so blessed to have colleagues just like her.

AT WORK

Today it’s holiday, celebrating the assumption of the blessed virgin Mary.  But I’m on duty and take note with normal working hours, eight hours duty. But We had fun at work with my colleagues. Sima brought us today some fruits to share with. She came late at work for one hour and I was telling her up to now she ‘s allowed to came late at work as long as she will bring us something to eat just like today. 😀

Sima’s fruits brought at work today 😀
Fruits such as ripe mnago, just like our very own Philippine Mangoes , “yung hinog ang tamis-tamis”! Sa akin yung buto na dalawang piraso, (not in picture). Nectarines, Melon or sugar Melon and Grapes. What a great time to spend breaktime at work with kind colleagues like her. I’m so fortunate indeed! By the way, Sima is from India, not Austrian but living here in vienna for more than a decade too.

From Internet: “Forget five a day, eat 10 portions of fruit and veg to cut risk of early death.” 😀

FARMERS STUFF

I’m always telling you how I love markets; from iconic to local markets, flea markets, farmers markets, street markets as well vintage markets.  Here what I got for the last few days from farmers markets. Farmers who came to Vienna to sell their products.

Plums and Nectarines from Hungarian farmers!
Today I visited again flea market near the airport and I got these plums and nectarines both for only one euro per kilo. Not too sweet but good enough for my shrimps paste (Bagoong alamang) for dipping. Yes! you read it right Folks. I used to eat it with “bagoong alamang guisado”. I’m a Filipina 😀

Studies proven that a fresh plum contains 113mg of potassium that helps manage high blood pressure. While nectarines are rich in fiber and vitamin C also low in calories that can be good for diabetics as well. So it will be good for me too, lalo na parehong iniingatan ko ang aking kalusugan. Ugaliing kumain nito na makakatulong sa mga may diabetes at high blood pressure na gaya ko.

Unique range of health benefits from eggplant, again manage diabetes, reduce stress and even prevent cancer and more. Hubby grilled this for me I ate with sliced tomatoes and red onions seasoned with shrimp paste (Bagoong guisado) eaten with whole grain bread. No rice for me, since 2013 and if ever just brown rice. Good for watching diabetes and hypertonie.

FLEA MARKET SCHWECHAT

Hubby and I, we visited the Sunday flea market at Schwechat. One of the biggest flea market outside Vienna which we love to visit during Sundays on summertime. That have lots of private sellers from families emptying their basements or attics!  Easy to reach, if you will go with car relatively easy parking  and mostly something for everyone. Here is their facebook page for more INFO check it out: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Flohmarkt-Schwechat/142115002525453

Looking forward to do something like this as often as I can, it was fun and a very  healthy idea to boost my eagerness to maintain my sugar level into healthy side.

SEABREAM or DORADO iCookiTravel

TUMERIC- comes from ginger root, this spice could help treat diabetes, stabilize blood sugar levels according to research.

Sea bream belongs to white fish, which is a good source of iron and calcium and has a higher fat content  as you could sea in soup, considered a valuable source of omega 3 fat. Can help to lower blood pressure, again for hypertension.

Corn Soup with Turkey Breast and Pechay- Dolly’s Kitchen
A soup made of Polenta, Pechay and Turkey breast seasoned with broth powder, salt and pepper. Polenta made from maize flour or corn flour, use in Italian cooking. That was dinner last night and granary roll. Granary roll or in german Grahamweckerl is lower on the glycemic index than white and wholemeal bread. So it is suitable for people who are suffering  from type2 diabetes.

Salad and Turkey Breast- Dolly’s Kitchen
A lightly lunch for me as I go on watching my cholesterol, diabetes, and hypertension. Yes you read it right. Here above juicy turkey breast meat and salad without rice.

PECHAY and SHRIMPS

PECHAY and SHRIPMS lunch time
Hello everyone, today’s lunch at home Pechay with shrimps with lots of crushed garlic. Why lots of crushed garlic? Because if you are watching your health particularly diabetes and hypertonie, like blood pressure can be at least alleviated by the frequent consumption of garlic over a long period of time. So here I used a whole cloves of crushed garlic-I Love it!

Whole Cloves Garlic for Pechay and Srimps
Pechay, Bok Choy or Chinese Cabbage whatever you want to call it. There are a lot of health benefits that can found in this crunchy, green leafy vegetable. It is now my habit to include it in my weekly menu plan for at least twice a week. Knowing that  pechay contains law calories and carbohydrates. In additional it has potassium, a mineral which is responsible for prevention of hypertonie and the regulation of blood pressure. Sounds good ha! So take it away from me Folks specially for those who are suffering from diabetes and hypertonie with matching high cholesterol. Jesus Christ!

Starting today I’m using Sesame Seeds Oil. Giving a try of what I read from a magazine last week. Hoping that it will help me also. I will keep you inform about this in the long run… Served with Brown Rice and a glass of Lemon juice as you could see on the Video. Happy Cooking and GUTEN APPETIT!
