Student Meal

Do you remember what was your favorite student or budget meal? or I will change the question? what was the meal you can afford during your college days?………..My answer?, It’s a student meal made of half serving of veggies and some meats…The vegetbale in this meal is Ginataang hipon at kalabasa and a simple fried pork chop and  steamed rice…This reminds me of my college days! ………………Did you know that the “alpha-carotene and beta-carotene” are potent antioxidants found in pumpkin and are pro-vitamin A carotenoids, meaning the body converts them to vitamin A. Vitamin A promotes healthy vision and ensures proper immune function. The beta-carotene in pumpkin may also reverse skin damage caused by the sun and act as an anti-inflammatory. Alpha-carotene is thought to slow the aging process and also reduce the risk of developing cataracts and prevent tumor growth
