Cooking healthy with the family has moo-re benefits than just a healthier diet. It can also be a fun bonding time for the whole family! Imagine learning a trusted family recipe from grandma or experimenting with a new recipe together as a family. I have fond childhood memories of cooking my first mushroom omelette with an aunt, making mee hoon kway from scratch and baking cakes with my family. :)
I like that cooking at home gives greater control over what goes into the food and eventually the stomach (very important for someone with 4 stomachs! Moohehe). Amounts and type of oil and salt can be moo-derated, and quantities of meat and veggies can be adjusted. Say bye bye to measly 2 leaves of chye sim or overly oily/salty dishes! Y-A-Y.
From 13 August, the Health Promotion Board is organizing a Let’s Cook Healthy Together contest to encourage moo-re families to lead healthy lifestyles by cooking together at home. I think it’s a fun idea!
All you have to do is simply:
- - Round up 2-4 family members.
- - Cook a healthy dish together!
- - From 13 August to 16 September 2012, snap and submit 2 photos- a fun moo-ment cooking with your family and the final dish.
- - Submit the recipe with the names and NRIC numbers of your family members involved in the cooking.
- From 11-21 September 2012, get your family and friends to vote for your dish
Stand to win attractive prizes with the first prize of $3,000 worth of Fairprice vouchers and a cooking class for a family of 4 at Cookery Magic! Winners will be announced on 28 September.
Here’s a photo of Cow Peh, Cow Bu, Cow Mui and this Hungry Cow cooking together on a Sunday evening. Guess what healthy and tasty dish we are cooking? All will be revealed in another blog post coming to you soon courtesy of HPB and this cow. :p
