Eat Clean with Sheryl: Deconstructed Sushi Bowl

With so many cheap snacks and fast food joints serving up instant-gratifying unhealthy food, today’s consumers are spoilt for choice. It’s also a relatively tough decision to make when a bowl of healthy salad at a popular salad joint can easily set you back by $11 and above, while a Double Cheese Burger Meal at McDonald’s – upsize with drinks included – costs significantly lower than a bowl of ‘vegetables’.

However, consuming sugarly, refined, processed and fatty food creates a lot of stress for the body to the point of ageing it well before its time. For more information on how food ages you, check out Experience Life’s article ‘Food Habits That Ages You‘.

Preparing your own meals can help you take charge of your health. No matter your age, living situation, or culinary skills, you can learn to cook tasty, healthy, and inexpensive meals.

Preparing your own healthy food is one way to beat inflation and exorbitant price tags. But more than that, preparing your own meals also give you the power to take charge of your own health. We are what we eat and we are all given the sovereign right to choose what we bring into our body system. Our parents (moms) and their parents know this to be true, hence their preparing healthy and unarguably less salty homemade staple as dinner for the family. Shopping for greens are also made easier. Commercialisation of the food industries brings with it the proliferation of supermarkets from heartland housing areas to business districts.

Character-wise, preparing your own food trains patience and apparently, guts too. An Instagram fan who’s afraid of the knife asks Sheryl how does she chops her greens so ‘finely’ to which our lady chef coolly replies, “it takes lotsa patience and I also have a powerful shredder!”

Ah, patience. A virtue we can all do more with indeed. RET
