Itlog Everyday is OK!

I am giving a big shout-out to this Eggvocacy by the National Federation of Egg Producers of the Philippines.

Itlog, Tagalog term for "egg."
Researches show eating an egg everyday does not increase risk of heart disease.

The Truth about Eggs and Cholesterol

"A substantial body of scientific research shows that dietary cholesterol has only a small effect on blood cholesterol and that the consumption of eggs - up to an intake of one egg per day - has no detectable effect on heart disease risk in healthy people." - American Council on Science and Health, 2002

Why an egg a day is really OK

Eggs are packed with:
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B2
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D
  • Choline
  • Folacin
  • Folic Acid
  • Iron
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus

Irresistible Asian

In a world of free trade, saying nationalistic as far as food consumption is concerned seems already impossible to me.

I consume Filipino foods and products and of course, food and food-products from other Asian countries as well. 

Here are some products that I use:

Coffee. Kopiko, the 3-in-1 coffee, which taste I like much for having more coffee and using brown sugar, is a product of Indonesia.

Vitamin. Memo-Plus Gold. I take Memo Plus Gold, not regularly, but from time to time only. Said to be good for the brain memory, Memo Plus Gold is a product of India.

Noodles. Oh! Ricey. I have seen many Korean and Japanese noodles in the market for sometime already but this product is new to me. Oh! Ricey is a rice noodle, product of Vietnam.

Ice Cream. Melona, ice cream waffle. Who cannot resist a taste of new dessert like an ice cream from Korea? 

We share products and we share the beauty of the tastes of our respective countries without forgetting our own.
