7 Days No Sugar Challenge - Day 3

     Have you ever had a day when every thing seems not to turn out right?  Well, this was exactly what happened yesterday.  No matter how hard I planned and scheduled, nature seems to have a mind of its own. 

      For starters, I woke up at around 6:30 am to have some quiet time. Though this was a bit late than our usual, the summer routine started to kick in and kids supposed to be up an hour later.  I was just about to prepare my morning cup of Mango Ceylon tea when my two boys began running around the house playing tag.  Next thing I know, daughter #2 complained that she's already hungry.  What more can I say?  So long quiet time! 

     Breakfast was a quick meal of quinoa, baked luncheon meat and leftover Sauteed Corned Beef. Sounds like a feast?  Well, let's say mom was able to get about 1 slice of meat and about a tablespoon of corned beef to go with a quarter cup of quinoa.  Yup that's how hungry my gang was! Of course, I wasn't able to take any pictures.  

      It's the just the middle of the week and I realized that my stock of pre-cooked meals has already depleted.  Since the kids were okay for a late lunch, I made a huge batch of this easy yet super delicious White Bean & Pasta Soup. It came out good as usual. The downside, it only lasted until dinner.  This meant I have to cook again the following day.  

       Baked goods are a staple in our home.  When I started this No Sugar Challenge, I told myself, I will not bake anything to avoid any temptations.  Of course, this was not possible as I have  an always hungry crowd at home.  The swimming lessons didn't help either.

       Accepting defeat, I baked the kids a batch of brownies. I was scheduled to test a product so I opened the package of a new brownie mix and just followed the instructions on the box to the tee. This helped me to have the courage not to taste the batter or the end product.

       Most of the time, I will go cuckoo when the result didn't come out exactly as what the picture on the box looks like.  The kids are more forgiving than me.  As long as it tastes good, they are happy.  As for me, the imperfections were enough for me to cringe and stay away.  Saving me in the process.

       Okay, I know the picture looked good and I'd say the brownies must have tasted good because the kids and my husband all liked it.  I confess, I was a bit (super, extra) cranky the whole day. Not sure if it's allergies or a sugar withdrawal symptom but I had been sneezing the whole time.  By dinner time, I was forced to take an anti-histamine medicine which never failed to make me drowsy.

     On a day like this, my source of comfort would have been a nice big piece of tiramisu or a super creamy NY style cheesecake.  But nothing is available at home.  To fix my sugar craving, I had about 2 cups of ice cold watermelon.  The sweet treat was a piece of heaven!  I could have had more but the medicine took effect.

        I was knocked out at 10 pm.

       Do you experience sugar withdrawal symptoms?

7 Days No Sugar Challenge - Day 2

      Temptation Day!

      Yesterday started really good.  Thanks to my growing tea collection, I was able to treat myself with a nice big cup of The Republic of Tea's Mango Ceylon . The strong aroma of mango made the tea somewhat sweeter naturally.  It matched perfectly with our family's breakfast of Sauteed Corned Beef with Onions and boiled quinoa. Since I forgot to take a picture of my meal, I used a photo of the dish which I took a while ago. As you can see, I didn't discovered quinoa then so the background was steamed white rice.  Still gluten free though. 

      We arrived home around 11:20 am from the kids' swim class.  They are a little tired for a big meal so I allowed them to have a snack while I do some writing.  Then, the first temptation came. While the kids were enjoying their food allergy friendly SUGAR cookies, they decided to offer me one because according to them "It tastes really good." I almost grabbed a piece when I saw the packaging.  I told I am thankful for the sweet offer but right now Nanay (mom) is not having any sugar. Since food restrictions are common in our household, it is no longer a big deal when one food has to be avoided.  Ah! That was close one though! 

      For lunch, I had the same as Day 1's which is Pork Menudo with quinoa.  I cook big batches remember?  

    The second temptation came after lunch.  The kids asked me if they could have dessert.  Both of my sons are actually underweight so I grab every opportunity to give them extra calories. What's for dessert? Melted semi sweet chocolate and marshmallows! Thank God Child #3 had a strong urge to try this new Vegetable Medley chips.  Not only is it food allergy safe, it has no sugar as well.  The sweet potatoes in it helped satisfy that sweet craving on the go.


      When we got back home from Karate class, it was time to prepare for dinner.  I've made this easy and well loved Indian Spiced Roasted Chicken.  Since I don't have hours to cook a whole chicken, I cut it in serving pieces before roasting. This reduced the cooking time to about 1 hour in the oven.  

      Since it was a busy day for all of us and I didn't have my afternoon java fix, I felt so tired after dinner.  Too tired to even think of dessert!  I easily fell asleep.  However, I was up a few times during the night. Is it due to sugar withdrawal?  What do you think?

7 Days No Sugar Challenge - Day 1

    Yesterday was the start of the 7 Days No Added Sugar Challenge. For a self confessed dessert fanatic, this is a real big deal.  As a little trivia, it was my sweet tooth that motivated me to teach myself how to bake again after my children were diagnosed with food allergies. I remembered the day when I told my kids this "Just because you can't have wheat, dairy, egg, soy, nut and peanuts, does not mean that you also can't have a cupcake, doughnut or ice cream.  We will make our own!"  That was almost 4 years ago and up to now I haven't stopped.  

     Anyway, when I was asked about the challenge.  I didn't hesitate a bit.  For months now, I have been curious about the growing Sugar Free diet trend. While researching about food allergies and the importance of gut health, big importance was emphasized regarding the bad effects of both natural and artificial sweeteners.  

     Day 1 turned out fine.   Even though the challenge allowed the use of a little stevia, I opted to be a purist and have only the natural sugars in fruits and vegetables.  What did I ate?  

For breakfast, I had a protein packed one which consisted of:
       1/4 cup cooked quinoa
       3 Tbs. Oven baked breakfast potatoes
       1 pc. organic hotdog 

      Since I can't have my favorite light and sweet coffee, I had a big mug of Double Green Matcha Tea.  

     The kids have their swimming lessons the whole week. So for lunch, we all had the stew which I cooked yesterday.  They usually eat theirs with steamed white rice.  For me, it was  
      1/4 cup cooked quinoa
     1/2 cup Pork Menudo (Pork chunks, potatoes and bell peppers slowly simmered in a seasoned tomato sauce)

     Since I started to crave for something sweet around 4pm, (the kids were having marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate for snack), I decided to make a smoothie with the fruits I have on hand. This one had strawberries, blueberries, banana, flax milk and some ice.   I had about 2 cups worth of smoothie so I'm still full.  Oh before, I forget, I also had a handful of low sodium potato chips. With four kids enjoying their food right in front of me, it is so hard to resist.

        For dinner, I had a bowl of Pork Spareribs Sinigang (pork and vegetables boiled in a tamarind based broth).   We had a late dinner because we went grocery shopping.  This probably helped because I never even thought of dessert afterwards.  Maybe the 2 liters of strawberry infused water which I kept drinking the whole day might have helped too.  What do you think?

         So far, so good.  Will it last?  Let's see...

Feel Good Balsamic Chicken Skewers

     "Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it."  - Salvador Dali     

   It's been 11 years since I became a mother. That's over a decade of obsessing over my children's clothes, manners, school work, feelings, schedules, parties and the list goes on. Honestly, I can't even recall how many books, e-books, guides, and even blogs I've read just to make sure that I'm on top of our family's activities.  It even came to a point wherein I gave each child his/her designated pen color on the calendar so that I will not miss anything.  OCD alert!

    Then, once in a while, no matter how organized and effective our systems can be, there will be occasions when we just "slip up".  Whether your child has food allergies or not, those rare incidents often leave a tremendous mark in our conscience.  An instant self nomination to the "Worst Mother of the Year Award." 

     My latest nomination happened just before the school ended, I mistakenly thought that Child #3 doesn't need to bring lunch for school anymore.  Since it was the start of the week long early dismissal days, I only sent a package of his favorite seaweed snack and a handful of grapes.  

   "What can possibly go wrong? It was only a Field day and  he will be out at 1 pm."   

    With less than an hour before dismissal, I received a call from the school.  The secretary told me that I need to pick up my son because he has crying inconsolably and it was after the PTO provided the whole school with pizza for lunch.  Panic suddenly crept in.  I immediately asked her if the nurse knew about it and if they administered an Epi-pen shot.  What a huge relief when she told me, my son didn't eat the pizza and in fact, he was not given any at all.   

    When I arrived in school, the principal and his teacher told me about the lunch room incident and my son's refusal to talk to anybody.  At that time, he was already calm inside the classroom and has even asked his teacher if he could wait until dismissal to go home.  A request she gladly approved. 

     On our way to the car, I asked his side of the story.  Tears flowed right away and he told me he was really hungry and there was no food to eat.  He knows he can't have the free pizza and he's only allowed food from his lunch box. It was not about the pizza, it was the fact that he has no food for lunch because he ate all of it during snack time.  He said that he doesn't want to tell them (the teachers and staff) that there's nothing left in his lunch box.   When I asked him why he didn't call me, (our house is less than 1/2 a mile from school and I'm home that day), he said he was really sad to talk.  Heart breaking enough?

    I don't know what else to do to comfort him than promise him that when we get home, he'll have his favorite chicken BBQ with Herbed Sweet Corn. Thank God, I have these marinating for days in the fridge! Within a few minutes, he happily ate his late lunch with a big smile.  Yes! I was forgiven too.  

     This simple and easy to prepare dish is not only comforting but a real crowd pleaser. The trick is it to let it marinade for a long time. It can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days or longer in the freezer.  It can be cooked on the grill, in the oven and even on the stove top.  

     The combination of sweet, sour, salty and spice is very child friendly. Since the meat is flavored without a sticky and messy sauce, these skewers are perfect for potlucks and even kids' lunch boxes.  For a more grown up version, add a pinch or more of powdered cayenne pepper.  You can also serve it with your favorite dipping sauce.  Child #1 likes it with bottled BBQ sauce on the side while Child #2 likes it with ketchup.  
     Is there a dish you often serve to your child when he/she had a bad day?  Love to hear what it is.

1. Cut the chicken thighs in half.  About 2 inch squares.
2. In a glass container with lid, whisk the vinegar, black pepper, chili powder, sea salt and garlic powder until well combined.
3. Add the chicken pieces and make sure it is well covered with the seasonings.
4. Cover and marinate at least 24 hours in the refrigerator.
5. Thread chicken onto skewers.
6. Lightly oil the grill plate and cook for about 7-9 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through.
    If using the oven, broil for about 8-10 minutes on each side.
    Stove top, lightly grease a cast iron skillet or grill pan.  Place the chicken skewers when the pan is starts to smoke.  Cook for 6-9 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear.

Oh,  and before I forget, every attendee gets a gift bag worth more than $150!

Food Allergies 101: 10 Things to Do Before Travelling to a Different Country

     It's the peak of summer season travelling.  For most us who are dealing with food allergies, this can be a stressful situation as well.  I heard of many families who opt not to go far from home or even out of the country because of their food allergy concerns.  

     In our case, if budget wasn't an issue, my family will be travelling like crazy this season. In fact, years ago, we all went as far as the Philippines and we all had a great time.  Don't let food allergies interfere with your vacation trips.  With a little planning, it can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

    Our friends from are very kind to share this guide to help food allergy families plan their out of the country trip.  Even though the article was initially meant for those in the UK, I realized that it is also very applicable to us here in the United States. 

      I suggest to keep this list handy for your next vacation planning.  It will save you so much time and anxiety.  

      Have a great summer!

10 Things To Do Before Travelling To A Different Country
1. Be prepared.
A little groundwork before you travel will hugely cut down on stress. If you have a food allergy, look into what dishes are popular in your destination - if they use your allergen frequently in cooking, find out what you'll need to avoid.
You should also find out how to contact the emergency services if anything goes wrong, as it's better to do that now than wait until it's urgent!

2. Check your insurance covers allergies

Make sure you get travel insurance that will cover an allergic reaction - not many do, and even fewer will cover anaphylactic shock. Check the terms and conditions carefully to make sure it does provide the cover you need - if you're not sure, just ask the insurer.
If you already have a policy in place, make sure that it will pay out for claims relating to an allergic reaction in case you need it too, otherwise you might need more specialist cover.
Most insurers will require you to declare an allergy if it's severe enough to require medical attention, so don't forget to do this. Failure to do so is likely to mean they won't pay out in the event of a claim and you'll have to cover the cost of any medical treatment you receive.
You'll also need to look into what your policy will pay out for - some might replace an EpiPen if you need to use it, and others might cover the cost if an ambulance is called out.
Find out whether the insurer will pay the hospital directly, or if you'd need to do this yourself and reclaim the money (if so make sure you have a credit card to hand). You'll also need to check how much excess you'd need pay towards any claims.
If you're travelling in the EU, you will need to get an EHIC card - find out more in our guide, What is the European Health Insurance Card? It's also worth finding out whether the country you're travelling to has a reciprocal health agreement with the UK. If it does, any lifesaving treatment will be free, although you may still need to pay for in patient costs so travel insurance is still a must.

3. Local knowledge about your allergy is key

It's a good idea to look into local attitudes to allergies so that you can precisely explain your own; for example, if you say you have a nut allergy in France, most people will assume this only means walnuts and not all nuts.
Be sure to be as specific as possible when you give details of your allergy, like when you order food. If allergies aren't that common in your destination then you'll need to be even more careful.
You should also look into what oils and flours are used in traditional cooking, as well as what goes into local drinks and sauces to make sure you're clued-up.

4. Prepare for the language barrier

Unless you're fluent in your destination's language (or they speak English) it can be much tougher if something goes wrong, so a little preparation is key.
Look up some key words and phrases before you travel, such as the terms for your allergies and allergens - make sure you write them down too.
Better still, note down a few sentences in the language that you can show when you order food or drink; this will ensure nothing is likely to get lost in translation! Some examples include:
  • Is this food/drink safe for someone who has a severe shellfish allergy?
  • I am having an allergic reaction - please call an ambulance
  • Does this have wheat in it?
  • I can't eat any nuts because I have a severe allergy and will go into anaphylactic shock. This includes hazelnuts, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, Brazil nuts and all other nuts including ground nuts and nut oils
Alternatively, translation cards are available from Allergy UK - these display information messages about your allergy in the language of your choice and can be worth looking at, although a search online should also give you the information you need to make your own.
If you've left it to the last minute ask if a host/ess on the airplane can help you note these down - it's really worth it.

5. Make others aware that you have an allergy

Make sure your travel companions know that you have an allergy and understand what they should do if you have an allergic reaction. If you have an EpiPen then make sure they know where you keep it and how to use it and what your travel insurance claims line is so that they can let them know you're having treatment.
If you have an allergy bracelet, don't forget to pack and wear this, as it might be vital if things go wrong. Alternatively, carrying vital information in your wallet might allow the emergency services to help you if you need it.

6. Talk to your hotel

Wherever you're staying, it's easiest if you let them know about your allergy, preferably before you get there. That way they can prepare, let you know what you need to do, and maybe even offer some advice too. If you've gone with a package holiday, speak to your rep in person when you arrive to make sure they know what they need to, and to see what help they can give.

7. Check your EpiPens and anti-histamines

If you use any medication like antihistamines or EpiPens, make sure they're in date and that you have enough of them, including spares.
You'll need to keep your allergy medication in your hand luggage so it's accessible. To avoid any issues in the airport, clearly label your medicine and get a doctor's note explaining what they are and why you need them.
Ask that it's inspected manually rather than x-rayed, as it's not known what effect x-rays have on some medicines.

8. Speak to the airline about your allergy in advance

If your allergy is food-related, make sure you contact the airline well in advance of your flight.
Let them know what you're allergic to, and make sure they can cater for you. If they can't, ask what your options are - you may be able to take your own food for them to heat up.
If you're allergic to peanuts, it's worth making sure your airline don't serve them as complimentary snacks to other customers, as peanut dust in a high pressure cabin can trigger a reaction.
If you are severely allergic then your airline may be willing to ask all passengers on your flight to refrain from eating or opening anything that contains your allergen while you're on board.

9. Plan for all circumstances

In a worst case scenario, if you ended up stuck abroad needing medical treatment and extended accommodation for your family, you'll need a way to pay for it without your costs escalating.
A credit card with no foreign transaction fees is worth taking with you just in case you need to cover the cost of medical treatment and/or extra accommodation for you or your family.
Hopefully you'll never need it, but planning for the worst never hurts - our Credit Cards With No Foreign Transaction Fees comparison will help you look into the best deals.
Remember to check for ATM withdrawal costs abroad on the credit card you choose too in case you're travelling to a cash-reliant society.

10. Enjoy yourself!

While you're there, you want to spend as little time as possible worrying. A little preparation means you can get the fretting and organisation done in advance at home. Combine this with erring on the side of caution - avoid anything you're not sure about to limit the chances of anything going wrong. This will leave you free to relax properly when you're away.

July 2014 Reading List

      My children's summer reading program has just started. Every year, all my kids look forward to this summer challenge by our town library.  Who wouldn't be?  For every five books a child reads, he or she will get to pick a prize.  Plus, there's also a contest among the three elementary schools in town.  The school with the most books read will get a party at the beginning of the school year.  Not to mention, the coveted bragging rights.  

    Since I don't want to be left out, I'm relaunching my monthly reading list.  It's a great excuse for me to sit back, relax and grab a good book as well. 

     If you are looking for some books, here's what I planned to read this month:

1. A guidebook for those who are always in a hurry and stressed.  The best part is that we can skip from one chapter to another without any guilt.

2. This motivational memoir sounds really entertaining. Plus each chapter was meant to be read with a cup of tea.  This means short chapters! 

3. Cholesterol and how to lower it is my research project for the next few months. Thanks to the Mister, I'm feeding the nerd in me.  

4. Lastly, my current obsession.  Plus I can't wait to know what's going to happen next season. 

       Have you read any of these books already?  With exceptions to the last one, (no party poopers and spoilers allowed okay)  I would love to hear your thoughts.  If you haven't, will you read these with me too? 

        Happy Reading!

52 Weeks of Simple Changes for a Healthier You Series

    I can't believe it's July already!  The first half of 2014 went really fast for me.  How about yours?  Were you able to keep your New Year resolutions?  I confess I wasn't.  But hey, we could always start again.    

    Since we're on the topic of starting. Last month,  I received the results of my annual physical exam.  I confess it has been two years since I had one. To my delight, all my numbers including cholesterol, glucose, sodium and iron came out normal. For someone who has thalassemia since birth, the later was one exciting news.  I can't help but smile when my doctor said "I don't know what you are doing how you got this results.  All I can say is Keep it up." 

    A few days later, my husband's results came out.  To our surprise, his results were a total disappointment!  Aside from his shell fish allergy which we've known for ages, it turned out that he is also allergic to egg, dairy, rice, oats, wheat, barley, rice, corn, soybean and several types of fish including tuna and salmon.  On top of the new allergens we have to deal with, his cholesterol level is through the roof.

    Our friends who are in the medical field were boggled why his doctor haven't prescribed him some medications yet.  According to our primary care doctor, he's giving my husband 3 months to lower his cholesterol the natural way.  This meant being active, exercising more often and most of all diet change.  If my husband's numbers haven't changed or God forbid increased, the doctor will have no choice but to put him on maintenance medication which has adverse side effects on other organs.

     When I first learned about my husband's results, I can't help but ask "How can it be?".  For more than 3 years now,  I've been on top of our family's food and nutrition.  Since the kids were on a limited diet, I've been extra keen to make sure that the food I prepare is not only tasty but most of all nutritious.  So far, all the children and I don't have any issues with our current medical tests.
     What's the difference then?  We all eat almost the same meals everyday.  As I look back and reflect on what other things I could do to help his health, it hit me.  My kids and I have habits which my husband doesn't have.  It may seem too simple or insignificant at first but I believe it is the small things that made the huge difference.

      As I help my husband acquire these new habits, I decided that it is also the best time to answer most of the questions I receive from readers and friends about healthy living.  For the next 52 weeks, I'll be sharing the small changes the kids and I made for the past 3 years which resulted to:
        * less nutrient deficiencies (even on a limited diet)
        * good numbers on cholesterol, sodium, blood pressure, iron
        * steady weight loss of me and weight gain for Child #3
        * lesser asthma attacks and medications
        * clearer skin and lesser eczema outbreaks
        * fewer sick days
         and more.
      Because a journey is always better and more fun with friends, I would like to invite you to join us in this 52 week (Yes, it's a full year) Challenge.  Every Saturday, you will receive a newsletter from me that's filled with budget friendly tips and a recipe or two that will help you and your home become healthier each week.   I promise, each step will be simple and yes, I will never fill your mailbox.
       So what are you waiting for? Are you in for the Challenge? Subscribe below and let's all start getting healthier.
