Healthy Meal: Pan-fried Tofu with Mixed Ground Beef and Veggies

Image
Being a mom, we are used to waking up early and sleep late. Making sure that everything is in place and ready for the next day. It is the same with the meal that I prepare for my family.

A one-dish meal that we can share during lunch or dinner time. When I say one dish meal, it means it's already packed with all the nutrients and vitamins that our body needs, especially for growing up kids.

What's good about the one dish meals aside from it having a full meal in one, it is also not time-consuming. You can finish a simple dish in 15-30 minutes.


As long as you have the right ingredients and seasoning in your kitchen, preparing a yummy and healthy dish will be easy.

If I don't have much time to do grocery shopping, I usually check what's available in the fridge or in our food stock.

Here is one of the recipes that I can share with you that you can also prepare for your family

Luxury at Home: A gourmet meal to kick off your evening

Image
You don't always need to go on expensive trips on a weekend or a fine dining experience to relieve that stress, you can always maximize relaxation in the convenience of your own home.

Giving yourself some "me time" does not mean you need to spend and splurge in luxury to give yourself a treat. a simple preparation at home while playing the relaxing playlist that you kept on your phone for a while is a great way to start, no shopping required unless there's something that you specifically need for your pampering.

A good bottle of wine, a couple of cans of tuna in the pantry, and a few odds and ends in your refrigerator are all you need for a gourmet meal to kick off your evening of indulgence.


Something light
If you’re watching your weight, skip the carbonated alcohol and alcopops and go straight for the good stuff. A lively Beaujolais would be perfect, or some nice mild Rioja Crianza. Despite these being both red wines, they’re light, young, and slightly acidic, pair…
