Garlic Pepper Porkchop on Corn Rice

In my most recent post, I said that there would be changes in this blog. I used to post yummy, but often quite unhealthy recipes. So, here I am now, trying to post better food that helped me and the hubby lose weight, as well as control his health problems. 

During the first month after his diagnosis, we decided to cut back on rice or switch to a healthier alternative to white rice. We tried the brown variety but did not like it much due to its blandness. We then switched to corn rice, we liked it and here's one of the better recipes that we developed with it.

 What you'll need:

1K porkchops
1 head of garlic
*1 teaspoon of dried crush chili
*1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
*1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
*1 teaspoon of dried basil leaves or oregano leaves
1 teaspoon olive oil (pomace)
oyster sauce to taste

cooked corn rice according to package instructions

What you need to do:

Rub the pork chop with all the herbs and spices (you can choose to lessen the amount of the peppers in order to lessen the heat or add more if you want it spicier). Add the oyster sauce to taste, olive oil and garlic. Marinade for about half an hour to an hour in room temperature before cooking on a grill basting it with the marinade you prepared. We love ours well done, so the amount of time on the grill depends on your preference.

Remove the skin and fat, chop it to bite sized or manageable pieces, top it on the corn rice and enjoy.

Brightest Blessings!

A New Journey in the Kitchen

 It's been a long while since I posted something on this blog. I missed my Kitchen and I missed sharing my food adventures to all those who take time to read this blog of mine. 

Anyway, at the start of 2016, I promised myself that I will share a new adventure in the kitchen, not just recipes, food photography tips, resto reviews and the like. This year, I want to share with everyone a journey that made a huge difference not just in my life, but in my hubby's as well.

Last year around June, he was diagnosed with hypertension, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol and fatty liver. Whew! Quite a lot and was a cause of concern not just for him, but me as well. When we learned about it, we vowed to change our lifestyle and eating habits. In this kitchen, I will share with you the things that we did in order to help manage and even fight off this diagnosis.

I hope that you guys will stay with me and I hope that what you will read will eventually inspire you to do the same things that we did.

Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional nor am I a nutritionist. Whatever I will share in the future is mostly based on the diet that we followed and the results that we've seen over the course of the diet. If you think or know that you have the same condition, please consult your doctor and ask for guidance from a nutritionist.

Brightest Blessings!
