What's For Lunch? Part 8

China is notorious for its endless cases of food scandals... tainted food, fake food, dirty food (using swill oil in cooking) etc. This makes mummy very cautious and particular about what we eat. To ensure that we don't eat "rubbish", mummy tries to limit our intake on processed food and outside food. Eating healthy, wholesome, natural (preferably raw) and unprocessed food is of utmost importance in our family, although the status of these fresh produce can be questionable too... we don't know if the pesticides and preservatives used are of acceptable levels, we don't know if they are genetically modified, we don't know if their organic goods are genuinely organic etc. 

Ok worries aside, we basically eat very simple meals at home, especially during the weekends when mummy doesn't cook the standard Chinese meals of rice and dishes. Every week, we have this "Healthy Sunday" at home where our day begins with a detoxifying concoction of fruit and vegetable juices. This is usually followed by simple, healthy meals like these...

All natural and unprocessed... free-range chicken eggs, cucumber, orange, cherry tomato, purple sweet potato and corn

Chinese "pita bread" with egg and chives filling, lettuce, cherry tomato, carrot stick and lotus root & peanut soup

Cute piggy buns (with red bean paste filling), mini purple sweet potato, egg, blanched edamame (bought fresh), cherry tomato, apple and apricot
