ASSI's Guest bloggers

AK is egg-static! (Inexpensive and nutritious food.)

Saturday, July 29, 2017

Although ASSI is mostly a personal finance and investment blog, I really do blog about anything which I might fancy.

It might sound unbelievable but I do have a small following of readers who are always curious about what I have at mealtimes.

When did this start?

Maybe, it started from all the stuff I wrote about how we could save money by packing lunch to work. Maybe.

AK is a giamsiap fellow.

Dinner today?

Microwaved scrambled eggs with unsalted butter, garlic salt and a dusting of black pepper.

Time to prepare: 
Less than 3 minutes.

About 50 cents.


In more ways than one too.

OK, this is the last blog for the day. In case you just dropped in today, these are the links to the two other blogs published today:

Myth: High Cholesterol Is Caused by What You Eat
The biggest factor in cholesterol is not diet but genetics or heredity.

If you're still worried about the cholesterol in your diet, take a look at the newly released 2015 U.S. Dietary Guidelines. As recently as 2010, U.S. dietary guidelines described cholesterol-rich foods as "foods and food components to reduce."

They a
dvised people to eat less than 300 milligrams (mg) per day, despite mounting evidence that dietary cholesterol has very little to do with cholesterol levels in your body.

The latest guidelines have finally removed this misguided suggestion, and they even added egg yolks to the list of suggested sources of protein.

Egg curry! Oishi!

In this version, I added full cream evaporated milk and some meat floss after the mixture (eggs, water, coconut oil and turmeric powder) came out of the microwave oven. Oishi!

Sedap! (Don't always oishi lah!)

Hi AK,

Looks delicious! How many eggs did you use for this? No rice or pasta to go along? :)~~~~~

Hi AK,
Since you cook your meals in the microwave, I would like to introduce you to this very popular chef's microwave meals (from savouries to cakes to just about everything!). Her YouTube has > 1 million subscribers and her readers have tried her microwave-cake recipes and apparently love them! Try them ... 'cos your microwave meals do look unappetizing :(

Hi Kevin,

I think you are in the minority if you think it looks good. LOL.

Just 2 eggs for this serving. Sometimes, 3 or 4 eggs. Depends on my stomach's mood. :)

I was on a low carbohydrate diet for many months. Now, I just settle for moderate carbohydrate. This was me trying to make up for having too much carbohydrate in the day. ;p

Hi Ben,

Eggstatically so for me. ;p

AK71 said...

Hi Ruby,

I am glad you enjoy my blog!

Wow! Twice a day! :)

AK71 said...

Hi jojo,

Food for me is a necessity.

I eat to live.

If I could spend even lesser time preparing meals, even better. ;p

Thanks for the suggestion though. I appreciate the thought. :)

jojo said...

AK, the reason I send you the link is because the microwave recipes are very simple and quick meals, most of them requiring only 1-minute preparation!
Plus they are more appetizing and delicious than the microwaved food you prepare ... at least that's what I think :)

You will not only prepare less time with these recipes but also enjoy a better variety!

Hi jojo,

1 minute? You bluff me.

Microwave Shakshuka in a Mug - Prep time 5 min. Cook time 2 min. Total: 7 min. -.-"

Crispy Microwave Potato Chips - Prep time 10 min. Cook time 3 min. Total: 13 min. -.-"

No way can beat AK scrambled eggs - Prep time 1 min. Cook time 1.5 min. Total: 2.5 min. ;p

Also, their recipes are mostly high in carbs and sugars. Will make me fat fat. Noooo! :o
