On 23 Jul (Wed), I was invited to attend Healthy Cooking Demo by Chef Anna Phua.During this session, I learnt from Anna about how to prepare healthy food with simple steps and StarWater representative David about the benefits of alkaline water.
Chef Anna Phua’s cooking class was in Atrix Building, at Aljunied, which she has just moved in this year.
A little background of Anna (taken from her website):
Driven with an unquenchable passion for baking and cooking since 14, Anna held her first baking class at 20. 34 years now, this food extraordinaire has been a regular contributor and guest speaker for Mediacorp’s Good Morning Singapore [Channel 8], Channel U’s cooking competition programmes, U-Weekly food columns, Lianhe Zao Bao and The Straits Times.
Her classroom was adorned with numerous newspaper articles of her interview and certificates.
Before learning to cook healthy dishes from Anna, StarWater’s representative David gave us a short presentation of benefits of alkaline water and their product Star5, StarWater Ionizer.
You may wonder what is
Compare to our tap water which is almost neutral to slightly alkaline, alkaline water has a pH similar to spinach, red wine and lemon (although lemon is sour, it is actually an alkaline food).
Research shown that high acidity within the body is the root of many illnesses. It happens when your body is unable to dispose acidic wastes, which can dramatically lower your immunity and increase susceptibility to illnesses. Alkaline water encourages circulation throughout the body, neutralising any acidity and balancing the body’s pH in the long run. On top of that, it can revitalise cells, boast immunity and even enhance the body’s self-healing capability.
Alkaline water is even more wonderful!
1) If you have toyed with the idea of detox or vegetable juice diet, why not try alkaline water first! Flush out toxic in your body without going a hassle.
2) Alkaline water drinkers have shown to see shifts in things like energy, rashes and cold sores, aches and pains etc. Better than medicine when drinking alkaline water is almost free and without obligation.
Below is Anna’s Star5 Ionizer.
My first thought of Star5 Ionizer, “Wow, it sure looks modern and sophisticated!”
It is designed to take up little space in your kitchen especially important if you do not own a big kitchen at home. From far, I thought it was an expensive coffee machine. This certainly makes it a wonderful kitchen accessory.
What’s more, it has many functions.
Various functions for your everyday needs. Water is separated into alkaline water for daily consumption, while acidic water can be used for cleaning. Moreover there is a Beauty Water function which can be used for shower and facial cleaning. Just thinking why spend big bucks on cosmetic products and facial treatments, when you can do it yourself with Star5 at home.
So many benefits, I’m so tempted to get one for family and myself. It will be a great investment for health!
Now move on to a fun activity. See all those different type of water, soft drinks, cups and bottle on table. David was going to show us the acidity of each common water we drink daily.
Tap water that passes through StarWater Ionizer turns into purple in acidity test. Singapore tap water is slightly alkaline as compared to mineral water, soft drink and isotonic water which are acidic. Isotonic drink which I usually drink after exercise is actually acidic. Worse still, mineral water that is supposed to be alkaline is also acidic too. Imagine how much of these water we have been drinking everyday!
After the acidity experiment,
Chef Anna to the action!
First, Anna was going to teach us her favourite starter/appetizier, Korean Pear Salad. A simple dish that you can prepare easily at home. Love the pear crunchiness, the sauce citrus taste and the sweetness of the dates.
Next dish was Energising Chicken Soup, my favourite dish out of all 4 dishes. Never thought herbal soup can be so healthy and refreshing. No artificial flavourings and salty aftertaste. Ingredients can be easily bought in NTUC. A dish I can teach my mum to make!
Last two dishes were Black Sesame Seed Rice and Iced Honey Peppermint Lemon Cooler.
Anna showed us healthy food does not mean bland food. They can be very delicious too! Her every dish was so so YUMMY that I crave to eat them everyday! Best of all, they felt light to my stomach. No more bloatedness!
