Bitter Melon cooked with Eggs


This yummy and very nutritious recipe is from my mom. She serve this to us last Sunday. Ampalaya or bitter gourd is very much advisable to diabetic people. Ampalaya or Bitter melon is a tropical and subtropical vine of the family Cucurbitaceae, widely grown for edible fruit, which is among the most bitter of all vegetables.
Bitter melons are seldom mixed with other vegetables due to the strong bitter taste, although this can be moderated to some extent by salting and then washing the cut melon before use.
A traditional way to cook bitter melon curry is to peel off the skin and cut into thin slices. It is salted and exposed to direct sunlight for few hours to reduce its bitterness. After a few hours, its salty, bitter water is reduced by squeezing out the excess by hand. Then it's rinsed with water a few times. Then fried in cooking oil, with onions also fried in another pan.

Here's the Recipe
1-1/2 cups ampalaya, sliced thin crosswise
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomatoes, sliced
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons shortening
1/4 cup onion, minced
1/4 cup water
Salt to taste

How to cook Ampalaya(bitter melon)With Eggs:

  • Sauté garlic and onion in 2 tablespoons of shortening or oil. Add tomatoes and water, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Add sliced ampalaya, cover and cook for 3 more minutes. Season with salt.

  • Add the beaten eggs spreading all over the vegetables. Cook over slow heat until the eggs are slightly firm. Add an extra 2 tablespoons of oil if necessary to keep the eggs from sticking.

  • Avoid stirring the vegetables as it squeezes more of the bitter flavor of the vegetables and makes the dish unpalatable. Yield: 4 servings.

Eyeglasses

I love wearing eyeglasses. I prefer wearing them no matter how bulky they are than wearing contact lenses. Contact lenses are too risky and the improper way of using them may lead to some eye health problems like vision impairment or poor eyesight. I love wearing transparent eyeglasses because i'm not so comfortable with shaded glasses. Nowadays, these eyeglasses serve not just for eye protection but also as a fashion statement.
I usually match up my glasses with the clothes that i'm wearing. I feel more decent if i am wearing these glasses but ofcourse i hate to wear eyeglasses which are too bulky for i may look nerd or weirdo.

Nowadays, most businesses are under the state of bankruptcy and that is because of the Global financial crisis that we are experiencing right now. But have you ever asked yourself why some wealthy people are able to survive from this financial crisis? I, myself is also asking why and how. But these questions are being answered after i have read Arina's Self Help Blog anf her wonderful article about The Three Biggest Investments that All Wealthy People Make. The article discusses everything and why wealthy people are able to maintain their wealth despite of many economic trouble.

If we all just have this kind of principle, i'm sure no one will suffer from bankruptcy, no one will be drowned to poverty and the world will have a stable and financial equity!

Metal Garden Shed

My mom loves gardening and she really exert efforts to grow those lovely ornamental plants in our yard. Aside from her colorful ornamental plants, she also have some useful plants that she mostly used for some of her favorite recipes. She also have some medicinal plants and herbs which is very useful. She also hired some garden designers before to help her organized her garden. She even bought books that shares some useful gardening tips and proper tools and equipements to be used for some gardening procedures.

Speaking of Tools and equipments, I've noticed that my mom is having a hard time thinking of where to place those heavy gardening tools and equipments. Currently she's placing everything in my dad's garage which really took a lot of space in our garage. Good thing i discovered www.asgardsss.co.uk, it is a site that caters storage products like metal sheds. This metal garden shed will be such a big help for my mom. She can now put everything into one place!

Fat- Fighting Food

I have read this over Yahoo! It's the "8 fat fighting Foods" Well let see if this 8 fat fighting foods really work in digesting fats.
  • Almonds - it was said that Dieters who ate 3 ounces of these nuts every day reduced their weight and body-mass index. Now here's my problem, I only get chance to eat almonds when i buy Hershey's Kisses^^Sad to say Chocolates and other sweet delicacies build up fats!
  • Berries - Vitamin C–loaded fruit such as strawberries and raspberries can help you sizzle up to 30 percent more fat during exercise. Berries are really hard to find in my country unless i went to Baguio and buy some packs of it!
  • Cinnamon - his spice could make your waistline nice. I hate the taste of Cinnamon so i guess i can't take it!
  • Mustard - The spice that gives mustard its color, turmeric, may slow the growth of fat tissues. Did you say Mustard? I prefer Custard ! its color Yellow too right?
  • Orange - Prevent pound creep with this citrus star: It contains fat-torching compounds called flavones. Among all the foods that was being mentioned , this is the only fruits i ate the most!
  • Soy Beans - These green gems are rich in choline, a compound that blocks fat absorption and breaks down fatty deposits. Add ½ cup edamame to a salad. I love soybeans, here in Philippines we have what we called "taho". It is a sweet soya drink made out of soya beans of course!
  • Sweet potato - hey’re high in fiber, which means no drastic insulin jumps and thus less fat packed onto your hips. I love Sweet potato! My mom usually include this to some of her recipes!
  • Swiss Cheese - Calcium-rich foods reduce fat-producing enzymes and increase fat breakdown. Okay! we only serve Swiss Cheese during Christmas eve!

My Grandma was diagnosed to have a Liver Cancer. I grew up with my Lola (a tagalog term for Grandmother) and i spent most of my time with her since both of my parents are working. I know God has a reason for everything and i am giving all my faith to him. May my lola will live longer and her illness will be cured. Currently she is undergoing series of medication. Her disease affected most of her organs like lungs, eyes and heart. Please pray for my Lola and for her immidiate recovery.
