I think most of us loathe the hot and humid weather during the Lunar New Year period. Sometimes I need to take a few showers a day just to cool my body down. However, the moment I stepped out from the bathroom, sweat will start to trickle down again!
With such weather, most people will get sick easily what’s more with munching on those festive goodies which are usually ‘heaty’ based. Darrius has been coughing since don’t know when and has not recover till now. Therefore, I usually boil soup with steam vegetables or fish for our meals. I will boil cooling tea on alternate days too to entice the little fella to drink more fluid. Other than that I will cook porridge to replace our regular meals for a healthier option.
Lately I have been cooking this pumpkin with scallops porridge which is everyone’s favorite at least once a week. I added peanuts and mince meat to add more flavors to it too.
Since we have been feasting for the past couple of days on those not so healthy food, having a bowl of this porridge is good for the body. At least it is less fattening! I’ll love to eat more porridge so I don’t have to worry about putting on too much weight and have to depends on weight loss products like relacore.
