What do you pair for your fried dish?…………….Did you know that the most interesting part of this vegetable is they have the power to reduce the risk of developing colon cancer. Some studies have shown that people who eat large amounts of cabbage have low rate of colon cancer. This is because they have high levels of fiber and chemicals. Fiber helps to keep our intestines healthy by increasing our transit movements. Cabbage also contains chemicals that inhibit tumor growth and protects cells from free radicals…….

Fried Fish in tausi sauce

Fish in tausi….This dish is a member of the so called “Pangat dishes”(meaning 2nd or 3rd day heating of meal)…I remember when we use to have a “small canteen”(cafeteria) in the philippines. 1st day we sell the fried fish, then if it doesn’t sold..second day we cooked it with tausi sauce or some times “sarciado”….Did you know that Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in Omega 3 fatty acids , or the “good” fats. Since the human body can’t make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet
