My breakkie this morning was something pretty healthy ~ high in protein, high in fiber and almost zilch carbs.
Leftover dinner from last night, eaten cold: organic long beans omelette, organic broccoli and red + yellow bell peppers. I only remembered to snap this photo half way through eating, thus what you see here is just the remains.
Did you know?
Broccoli is a nutrition powerhouse that supplies loads of nutrients for few calories. While there are no single ‘superfoods’ that can prevent cancer and certain risk factors for cancer are unrelated to diet, there is evidence that eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk of cancer. A key component of broccoli is a phytochemical known as sulforaphane, which also gives broccoli a slight bitter taste. Studies have shown that sulforaphane may play a part in enhancing detoxification of airborne toxins, such as cigarette smoke, and could help reduce the risk of certain cancers. Further research has suggested that broccoli may have anti-cancer properties and could reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
After a healthy breakfast, I had another high protein lunch of char siu, siu yoke and curry noodles with the hubs at Happy Garden.
One of the best siu yoke in the Klang Valley can be found at this kopitiam. Sorry I forgot to take note of the name of the kopitiam! This roast meat stall used to be stationed at Kedai Kopi & Makanan Mooi Mooi (corner lot) but the owner has since moved his stall to another kopitiam just next door. He is now occupying the whole kopitiam. The once dark and rundown shop is now refurbished and transformed into a brightly lit Chinese herbal wholesale business.
Same owner (man in blue tee) in different kopitiam now.

Best in the world melt-in-the-mouth charcoal roasted siu yoke! And this is the owner’s claim to fame! No one else makes such crispy siu yoke that melts in the mouth as him.
But I can’t stomach so much fat and don’t fancy fatty food. After a few pieces of siew yoke and a few pieces of 99% lean char siu, I already felt cloy. The hubs with a bottomless pit chomped down 2 small plates of siu yoke, 1 small plate of char siu and 1 plate of rice. Patrons are free to help themselves to the gigantic pot of aromatic soup (chicken feet with radish) outside the shop.
Damage today for 2 small plates of siu yoke, 1 small plate of char siu, 1 plate of rice and takeaway char siu, siew yoke and roast chicken with 1 packet rice (enough for 2-3 pax) was RM113. Pretty reasonable eh? The bowl of curry noodles was from the kopitiam next door.
