Healthy Meals Before Surgery

Four more days to go before the long awaited day! Bring it on!

These days, I am very careful with what I put into my mouth. I make sure that what goes into my body is not ‘tuk‘ (poisonous in Cantonese) and is low in sugar. I try to eat more iron-rich foods, more fruits and vegetables and more Izumio.  Prawns, peanuts, dried shrimps, seafood (except fish) are considered ‘tuk’ foods and I avoid them like the plague.

My breakfast this morning:


Salted gula Melaka granola from Amazin Graze with toasted sunflower seeds, toasted almonds and walnuts, cranberries and banana.  Amazin Graze’s granola is the best in the world!

Lunch today:

Minced beef ‘mee suah’ with fish balls and mustard greens. Soup base is chicken stock.   Dessert is red bean + black glutinous rice ‘tong sui’.

My little bookworm all soaked up in her Enid Blyton novel.

I made a big mug of chilled lemonade with raw honey for the girls. It’s super refreshing on a sizzling 36 degrees Celsius afternoon.


Fruits of the day for the girls – red dragron fruit, apple, organic tomato and kyuri.
