Cold Noodle Salad and other Summer Recipes

I have two stories want to share with you.

One of my Chinese friends married an Italian guy last year. She became very strong when I saw her last month. Before getting married she only had one meal each day. She looked thin and weak then. Now she has three meals a day, following her husband’s eating habit, which includes olive oil and pasta. She’s not fat but strong and healthy. She feels better herself. She said she can eat any food now. Previously she was allergic to some food.

Another story:

Last month a 41-years-old lady died of Amway’s weight loss pills. Amway staff told her that try not to eat food but eat Amway’s products. She was told that she would lose weight as long as she insists on eating Amway’s products for 21 days. Her husband said she lost her life after two days continue eating those pills. She refused to eat food in the two days.   I feel happy for my friend’s healthy life, and feel sad and sorry for that lady. The two stories told us that only food can bring us nutrient and health. The sad thing is that our health knowledge is misled by the advertisement of so-called healthy products. Many experts including Dr. Oz suggest us that try to get nutrition from real food.

Eat food, no pills!

Love food and enjoy your health!

You can see this dish everywhere in North China in summer.

Ginger with milk curd. You cannot miss this dessert. I make it almost everyday now. I mentioned that eating too much cold food in summer is easy to cause cough and cold in autumn and winter. Ginger can remove the coldness. But directly eating ginger can cause heat. This dessert is a perfect solution in summer. Get ginger milk dessert recipe here

Here is our delicious chicken dish: Braised chicken wing. After eating so much heat-removing food I really miss strong flavor and fragrant food. This dish can satisfy anyone's appetite for good food in summer. It's quick.30 minutes can be done. get recipe here.
