Carrots are used widely in the kitchens for its sweetness and vivid colour. Apart from aesthetics and taste, they provide a lot of nutrition to the body.
Carrots are good for the eyesight; carrots are good for the complexion; carrots are anti-aging; carrots help lower the risk of cancer; carrots prevent heart disease; carrots reduce the risk of stroke; carrots help to kill germs in the mouth that cause tooth damage.
Carrots can be eaten raw, consumed as juice or cooked. Here’s a simple and delicious recipe to include carrots in your diet.

I love soups, all kinds of soups.
Soups are highly versatile; they can be served as a starter, an appetiser, as a side dish, or as a one-pot meal.
Soup is the epitome of comfort food for me. A warm bowl of soup can lift one’s mood instantly –it not only warms your tummy, but it warms your soul too.
A good blender is a necessary tool for avid soup makers; transferring sautéed ingredients from pan to the blender is a regular affair.
Thanks to my new best friend, Tefal’s Blendforce Glass (which I have been using religiously ever since I got it), I can finally make my own creamy soup!
This soup contains no preservatives and artificial flavours. You can even tweak the recipe for a low-sodium and low-fat option!
#CookForFamily is an initiative conjured up by food blogger and Radio 100.3FM deejay Daniel Ang, with a simple objective of getting more bloggers, and hopefully their fans and followers, to start cooking.
When I received the email from Daniel, I agreed readily without even having any idea what I was going to cook. I’m always supportive of my fellow foodie friends, and I found no reason to show disdain.
How #CookForFamily Works
- Pick any day in July to cook a meal for a single member of your family, entire family or loved ones.
- The meal does not have to be anything fanciful, as long as it is cooked from the heart.
- Remember to take photos of your cooking.
- Blog about your cooking, the experience, your thoughts, what your family thinks of your cooking, and encourage others to #CookForFamily too.
Jamie Oliver Foundation launched its first-ever Food Revolution Day on 19 May 2012; a global day of action to inspire, educate and empower people all over the world to stand up for real food.
Singapore’s Food Revolution Day was held at The Lawn, happening correspondingly with 30 countries, 285 cities –same festival, same objectives, just different venues, and time zones.
Check out my previous post on what Food Revolution Day is all about: http://melicacy.com/?p=3807
The event was a great success! Huge thanks to The Lawn for sponsoring the venue and a big thank you to those who showed up.
People from all walks of life, gaining insights on healthy eating; making new friends with like-minded foodies; enjoying the fun and festive events sedulously organised by the FoodrevSG team, made all the hard work worthwhile. Kudos to the team!
The most comforting soups are cooked with love, in a humble home.
Unfortunately, due to the progression and development of our nation, working adults are too caught up with their hectic lifestyle and are too busy to step foot into the neglected kitchen –unlike the olden days when men were the sole breadwinners in their families and women await their husbands’ return from a long day at work, to a spread of lovingly-home-cooked meal.
At home, parents meddling with the kitchen tools are a rare sight; we own an electric double boiler and a thermal cooker that we hardly utilise at all.
Soup Guru will be a hit amongst the working bunch in the bustling city, offering a wide selection of soups that will remind one of home.
The budding chain aims to promote the culture of soup drinking by making it more accessible and affordable.
Gardenasia Bistro, nestled in the serene Kranji countryside, is true to the nature of its namesake; serving up heart-healthy Western cuisine with an Asian twist, taking pride in showcasing garden-fresh ingredients.
