Evernew Orange Fruit Cup and Coconut Trees Fruit Platter

Did a healthy fruit cup using Evernew Orange for myself :)


1. Slice the orange from top to separate in five. Scoop the orange and set aside. 

2. Cut the kiwi fruit into small cubes and mix with strawberry, cherry and blueberries.

3. Mix the Evernew Orange with orange juice. Stir evenly and add in all the ingredients in Step 2. Fill into the orange cup. 

4. Decorate with cherry, blueberries and strawberry on top.

Also did a healthy fruit platter "COCONUT TREEES" for my girl :) 

Does it look like 2 coconut trees? :)

I use Evernew Orange as the "soil base" of the coconut trees. 

When Emily saw this platter, she was very excited at her BIG dessert with different colours. :p 

But she only managed to eat a little. The below is the deformed coconut trees after her dessert time! haha! I finished the rest of it. 

I'm happy to see her growth milestone!

    Artificial Sweeteners Boost Diabetes risk

    PARIS: Promoted as an aid to good health, artificial sweeteners may in fact be boosting diabetes risk, said a study on Wednesday (Sep 17) that urged a rethink of their widespread use and endorsement.

    Also called non-calorific artificial sweeteners, or NAS, the additives are found in diet sodas, cereals and desserts - a huge market for people worried about weight gain and sugar intake.

    Some experts recommend NAS for people with Type 2 diabetes, a disease that has attained pandemic proportions, and for a pre-diabetic condition called glucose intolerance, with elevated blood-sugar levels.

    After leaving a sensation of sweetness on the tongue, NAS molecules pass through the intestinal tract without being absorbed. This explains why, unlike sugar, they add negligibly, if at all, to the calorie count.

    But scientists reported in the journal Nature that experiments on lab mice and a small group of humans found NAS disrupted the makeup and function of gut bacteria, and actually hastened glucose intolerance.

    "Artificial sweeteners were extensively introduced into our diets with the intention of reducing caloric intake and normalising blood glucose levels without compromising the human 'sweet tooth'," the paper said.

    "Our findings suggest that NAS may have directly contributed to enhancing the exact epidemic that they themselves were intended to fight," it said bluntly.

    Scientists led by Eran Elinav and Eran Segal of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel added three commonly-used types of NAS - aspartame, sucralose or saccharin - to the drinking water of mice in body-size appropriate doses equivalent to recommended maximum human intake.

    Those rodents given NAS developed glucose intolerance, whereas mice that drank only water, or water with sugar, did not.

    Next, the researchers transplanted faeces from NAS-fed and glucose-fed mice into rodents bred to have no gut bacteria of their own.

    The blood-glucose levels of the NAS transplant recipients rose sharply, the team found - and their gut bacteria worked harder than the other group's at extracting glucose from nutrients.

    The next step was to apply these insights to humans. Pouring over questionnaires and health data from 381 non-diabetic people, the team found a "significant" link between glucose intolerance and higher NAS consumption.

    Finally, the researchers placed seven volunteers who did not normally use NAS on a seven-day regimen that included the maximum sweetener intake recommended by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    Within five to seven days, four developed elevated blood-glucose levels and an altered gut bacteria mix, apparently mirroring the effect in mice.


    Past investigations into NAS have delivered mixed results. Some showed benefits in weight loss and glucose tolerance, while others suggested the opposite.

    The picture is muddied by the fact that many NAS consumers are people who already have diabetes or are prone to it.

    The new experiments are a red flag, the team said. "This calls for a reassessment of today's massive, unsupervised consumption of these substances," said Elinav.

    Independent commentators praised the work for its innovation, but warned against overreaction. The human trial involved just seven people over a week, and wider and longer trials are needed to draw any firm conclusion, they said.

    "Human diets are complex, consisting of many foods, the consumption of which can vary in amounts, and over time," warned John Menzies of the Centre for Integrative Physiology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

    "This research raises caution that NAS may not represent the 'innocent magic bullet' they were intended to be to help with the obesity and diabetes epidemics," Nita Forouhi, a University of Cambridge epidemiologist told Britain's Science Media Centre. "But it does not yet provide sufficient evidence to alter public health and clinical practice."

    9 Superfoods which are good for eye's health

    9 Superfoods which are good for eye's health.

    1. Brussel Sprout
    Brussels sprouts are abundant in zeaxanthin, which helps to boost overall immunity and protect eyes.

    2. Chia Seed
    Chia seeds are rich sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid with powerful anti-inflammatory effects that may help prevent eye conditions linked to oxidative stress and inflammation.

    3. Blueberries
    Blueberries are packed with anthocyanins—powerful antioxidants that protect the retina from free radical damage.

    4. Chinese wolfberries
    Like cassia seeds, Chinese wolfberries are used in TCM to help nourish the liver for better eye health. They are high in lutein and zeaxanthin, which act as antioxidants in the eye to protect and maintain healthy cells.

    5. Cassia Seed
    Cassia seeds are used as a tonic for the liver, eyes and kidneys in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). An unhealthy liver cannot rid the body of toxins effectively. This leads to more toxins in the bloodstream, causing free radical damage to the eyes. Cassia seeds help neutralize free radicals and protect the liver by boosting the activities of antioxidant enzymes. 

    6. Broccoli
    Broccoli is a potent source of sulforaphane, a phytochemical with potent antioxidant effects that help protect the retina.

    7. Yellow pepper
    Yellow pepper is high in nutrients like lutein, beta-carotene and violaxanthin that help improve vision.

    8. Grape Seed 
    Grape seeds are abundant in oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). These are powerful antioxidants that help strengthen blood vessels and improve blood circulation in the eyes.

    9. Carrot
    Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene and lutein for better night vision and to help prevent dry eyes.

    4 keys to stay away from diseases and illnesses

    On the newspapers, we usually will see many health seminars being available for the public to attend. I took this photo long time back. When I looked at it again, in fact I have handled quite a few cases of eczema and heart problems and 1 case of trigger finger over these few years.

    Indeed there are many people in Singapore who suffer from these problems. Some have even affected young children. 

    According to experts, majority of the illnesses are caused by malfunctioning immune systems. If we would like to stay away from diseases and illnesses especially the chronic ones, do ensure our immune system is healthy. 

    A healthy immune system will be achieved from 4 ways: 

    1. Balanced healthy diet, eat more fruits and vegetables instead of animal meat. Please follow this blog to learn which plant foods are good for our immune system.
    2. Appropriate exercise 
    3. Sufficient rest and sleep
    4. Stable emotion

    By practicing the above healthy lifestyle, I believe all can stay healthy.

    Warmest regards,

    Health maintenance after a sumptuous steamboat

    Had a great steamboat gathering with ex-housemates today! A sumptuous meal with a great spread prepared by them - ranging from meatballs, fishballs, vegetables, mushrooms, fried Old Chang Kee's food, fish meat, scallop, prawns etc!! A very filling and satisfying dinner!

    After reaching home, I had a bottle of Millennium sparkling drink to aid my digestion after eating too many delicious meals especially meat. Cactus ingredient in Millennium Sparkling drink is very good at neutralizing animal hormones from meat to prevent harming our health. Felt very refreshing also after taking this healthy soft drink! ;)

    Millennium Sparkling drink is definitely the best replacement of sweet and unhealthy soft drinks as it is:
    • Natural botanical ingredients: Cactus, Lime, Stevia
    • No added preservatives
    • Low in calorie (only 50 calorie per can)

    Longevity Herbs (KUMAZASA & ASHITABA)


    Originating from Japan, is a versatile species of bamboo. it is said that Kumazasa leaves are a bear's first meal after hibernation. Bears eat large amounts of food before hibernation. During hibernation, which lasts around 6-7 months, waste from digestion circulates in their bodies through their blood. By eating Kumazasa, bears purify and detoxify their blood after hibernation.

    The Japanese wrap food such as raw fish with Kumazasa leaves to prevent spoilage and impart their fragrance to contents. Kumazasa's ability to preserve food is attributed to volatile oils of the leaves.

    Studies have shown that Kumazasa has a cleansing effect on the blood, which is useful for lowering blood pressure. 
    • Its polysaccharides can reduce excess cholesterol in blood vessels to help them regain vitality and elasticity, protecting against atherosclerosis. 
    • Its lignin also has cleansing effects on the liver, enhancing its filtering function.
    • Bamfolin, a polysaccharide in Kumazasa, has anti-cancer properties. It helps to strengthen cell walls, so that cells' absorption of nutrients and detoxification are smoother. 
    • Kumazasa extract is excellent for promoting wound healing and has anti-bacterial and anti-viral effects.


    Do you know there is a plant with such strong life force that if you pluck a leaf today, a new one will sprout tomorrow? 

    This amazing plant is Ashitaba and it is native to Japan's Hachijo Island. During the Edo period, Hachijo Island was used as a place of exile for convicts. Despite hard labor and poor diets, the convicts lived long lives. Their unlikely longevity was attributed to the continual consumption of Ashitaba that they foraged for.

    Scientists have discovered many good components in ASHITABA: 
    • Flavanoids: Luteolin-7-glucoside and isoquercitrin are among the different flavonoids present in Ashitaba. Flavonoids have been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart diseases, asthma and stroke.
    • Coumarins: These are antioxidants with anti-cancer properties.
    • ChlorophylII: It stimulates the production of red blood cells. It is also excellent for cleansing the blood and liver, and promotes the growth of "friendly" intestinal bacteria.
    • Chalcones: Ashitaba sap is very precious as only a few milligrams can be collected from the cross section of the stem. The sap is made up of mostly chalcones, which have been linked to many of Ashitaba's health promoting benefits.
    • Anti-allergy
    • Regulate Blood glucose level
    • Bone formation and bone mass
    • Anti-viral
    • Nervous system - promote production of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), prevent Alzheimer's disease and peripheral neuropathy
    • Reduce Visceral Fat (abdominal fat which is very difficult to reduce) for more efficient weight management
    • Wound healing

    As a convenience,
