I don’t know when it began.. and why I eat consciously .. of course I ain’t no angel .. because i crave for sinful food too.  I love my laksa.. and that means loads of coconut.  When I was back home in Singapore.. i rarely take laksa or spicy food.  Firstly .. coconut is not healthy .. and spicy food.. just ain’t my type of food.  But now that I’m in Canada .. well.. as spicy as i can get.. and all the coconut i can take.. if i am making curry chicken.  I kid you not.  I guess the saying about .. if you can’t have it.. you want it .. is so true.  I was on some Vegas vacations many years ago.. and  the host was skinning the chicken .. i understand it.. but truth be told.. i wished she had left it on.. because chicken fried with skin.. is the best thing .. one can eat.  But having said all that.. we all know .. that eating everything moderately is eating healthy.. and if the chicken ain’t fried.. i skin the skin.  What about you..??

    i definitely try to be conscious about my food choices being in college and away from home! The most common foods i can get are chicken wings (buffalo style) pizza, beer, burgers and other fatty foods! Not to say that i don’t eat them at all but having grown up eating things like fish, LOTS OF veggies definitely help 🙂 I feel like non asian food is very salty most of the time and oily. When i cook myself i definitely try to use less. I think my most sinful treats when i go back the rotisserie stuff (CHA SIU!! and roast duck are my favorite) and bakery goods like egg tarts and other desserts 🙂

    Oh boy.. writing about this is kind of making me hungry!

    Enjoy everything in moderation is the way to go, Mama Bok. Thanks for your food blog, I do enjoy reading all your posts.

    we have to strike a balance. i’m cooking and rarely eat out nowadays so there’s less salt & ajinomoto in my food. on the other hand, i miss asam laksa & nasi lemak(stuff that I try to avoid eating at home) cos I cant get it here. we u cant have it, u miss it….typical human behaviour issint it?

    why isn’t coconut healthy? i thought it was …

    and also my motto is that if it doesnt show the nutrition information on the food then it has no calories and is healthy LOL!
