Bible Verse of the Day

Nutrition in a Jiffy

Before we had a kid in the house, being well-stocked meant having at least 2 packets of instant noodles stashed away in the kitchen cupboard.  And when hunger struck, a “nutritious” meal of instant noodles can be prepared in the flash of an eye.  But now with Ethan around, I have to make sure the meals I prepare are nutritious, without the inverted commas 😛

Just like last Sunday, when we were coming home from Gurney Plaza, Ethan indicated that he was hungry by saying “mum mum”.  So when we reached home, I decided to whip up a quickie meal of noodles (sans preservatives) for a light tea snack.  I had some organic spinach noodles which I had bought some time back.  Now, giving Ethan spinach noodles is really killing 2 birds with one stone because he loves noodles and at the same time, he was getting his greens as well.  The meal was prepared in about 5 minutes and I was glad that our boy enjoyed it so much!  It was gratifying to see him slurp each strand of the noodle and then proclaim “Chiak Pa!!” (Hokkien for “I’m full!”)

    Spinach noodles are oh so yummy! There’s this stall in a coffeeshop in Setapak selling spinach noodles that I visit for breakfast before church on Sunday mornings. Simply yummy!

    Joyce says: I wonder how that will compare with mine!

    these noodles though organic, tend to be quite salty. I always boil the noodles separately before adding them into the soup.

    Joyce says: Noted 🙂 But I don’t think they are any more salty than the ones that are served outside, no?
