[4 recipes] Quick Meals Using the New Philips Avance XL Airfryer

Rosemary Chicken with Sweet Potato Fries plus Chocolate Cherry Pound Cake
Whipping up healthier meals by reducing (or omit) the amount of salt, sugar and oil intake makes it a better diet for everyone in the family. And being the main cook for the family I always try my best to prepare their favourite food with a twist to safeguard our body functions. Example, using coconut or olive oil for in our dish or bake; incorporate more fibres, greens, proteins and fresh fruits in our daily diet plus always source for "fresh ingredients" to prepare our meals.

And in this post you can also take on reference how I make used of the red and white quinoa in our dishes together with other ingredients.

i-Love Mama Healthy Meal Contest

[Tea-Break] Cheesy French Toast with Cute Bunny and Granola
Hi Morning! It's mid-week again and I am sure everyone is looking forward to weekend to have some family time or gathering with friends and etc. Here I have four different design of Bento Meals which I hope it would bring in some ideas for you while preparing your daily meal for your kids or loved ones.

Also two days back while flipping through the iWeekly(I周刊) and 8Days, I happen to see an interesting advertisement on i-Love Mama Healthy Meal Contest which I would like to share with you. But before that, let me run through some of the bento meals which I have made for my boy.

[Tea-Break] Mini Milk Bread with Assorted Cheese and Fruits
Cheese and milk are important for growing up kids to provide them with calcium that needs for growing bones and teeth. Furthermore cheese is also a source of protein, vitamins and minerals which are essential for growing so it would be good to add in some cheese while preparing your snacks or dishes in a way to encourage your your kid(s) to eat them.

[Lunch] Lovely Garden
For lunch I made a lovely garden theme using sweetcorn for the flowers and assemble the garden with mushrooms and butterfly from the ingredients in the stir-fry choy sum. With this lovely layout it actually turns the "boring" green vegetables into something artistic which I am sure your kid(s) will be delighted to try them out.


My boy who loves underwater world creatures always get excited when he see an ocean theme deign for his lunchbox. Here by adding some fish and star cutout carrots to my stir-fry broccoli with mushroom, I managed to assemble something that he likes with sausage octopus and baked cheesy salmon to complete the healthy meal.
