My current favourite side dish- black fungus with slight spicy sauce

Today I was supposed to attend the global wellness day at RWS. However , I was feeling a bit feverish and tired.I decided to get some rest. After resting for almost one whole day,I felt a bit better. I decided to make black fungus with slight spicy sauce.



Recently, I have been crazing for this dish most of the time during dinner time. It is so simple and i just managed to learn from someone else.

Why I decided to cook this dish is because that it has the following benefits.

The benefits are:

  • lower cholesterol
  • improve blood circulation
  • help people with the dry throat

Ingredients 

Small black fungus- soak and blanched in boiling water and drain dry.
1 teaspoon of vinegar
1 clove of mince garlic- chopped finely
3 sticks of the coriander leaves chopped finely
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoon of light soya sauce
1 teaspoon of sesame oil 
1.5 desert spoon of Lao gan ma chilli oil

Mix the sauces together with the black fungus after draining the black fungus. Leave it for a while and then eat .

Seasonal allergies's quick fix remedies


How to identify synthetic vitamins

  • Organic substances generally have common names because they come from natural food sources.
  • For e.g "Lemon Grass" instead of acetate and palmitate; "Citrus" instead of "Vitamin C" or "Parsley" instead of "vitamin K"
  • Find words that end with "ate" or "ide" in the list of ingredients.
  • For e.g. nitrate, acetate, sodium ascorbate, sodium benzoate, chloride, hydrochloride, silicon dioxide and titanium dioxide.
  • In the ingredients label search for words that begin with "dl."
  • For e.g. Natural Vitamin E = d-alpha-tocopherol; Synthetic Vitamin E = dl-alpha-tocopheryl
These are the simple ways to identify synthetic vitamins , so you people out there please look out for it.
