My food inspiration

Besides my mum, Jamie Oliver has been an inspiration when it comes to food. It doesnt hurt that he has the cutest lisp (lol), but seriously Jamie makes a real effort to encourage healthy eating. I am very fortunate to have been raised on home cooked meals and I strive to do the same for my kids and hopefully the tradition continues with the future generation.

Food is central is our lives, as it brings families, old & new friends together. Food can heal or hurt if taken in oversized portions. Which is why I love Ramadhan, where Muslims observes fasting from dusk to dawn. It has been scientifically proven that there are many health benefits by observing fasts. I will not get into that as I am not a health expert.

There is only one thing that I try to remind myself is practice restraint at iftar (break fast) which I know a lot of us tend to do, especially with the hundreds of food stalls, and Ramadhan buffets in most Muslim countries.

Hope everyone is having a good Ramadhan and please eat in moderation to prevent waste. You can check out healthy recipes at
