Juicing for Health Book Launch By Sara Ding ~ MPH Masterclass Kitchens Series @MPH BookStores Nu Sentral Kuala Lumpur

SARA DING 
Juicing For Health

Book Launch
17 Oct 2015

Juicing For Health Book Launch

To mark the launch of this book, MPH and Kuvings Sdn Bhd hosted the Juicing for Health Party on 17 October 2015. Guests can learn how juicing transformed the author’s health and discover insight into natural healing potential of fruits and vegetables.

 Good Talk & Great Work By Famous Juicing Evangelist ~ Sara Ding

I was truly inspired by the talk given by Miss Sara Ding, a juicing evangelist as she led us on her juicing journey and her discovery of a brand new healthy world on the benefits of juicing for health. She shared with us her story of of poor health many years ago that lead her to self-healing to improve her health by making juicing a lifestyle.

My blogger hubby, Uncle Hong who came along for this book launch was won over by the many amazing benefits of the juicing. There was a live juicing demonstration session with Kuvings, a well-known whole slow juicer brand from Korea. And ever since he returned from the launch, he has been hunting for the suitable juicer for our family, seriously considering juicing as an option for the whole family to maintain good health.

Research has proven that drinking freshly-extracted juices is an effective way for our bodies to absorb nutrients. And for those who are not into fruits and vegetables, juicing is a great way to include them into your diets.

Sharing Her Juicing Experiences With Her Fans

For many years, Sara Ding had been in poor health. Looking at the multitude of pills and medication she was taking, she wondered if there was a better way to get healthy. Thus began her juicing journey.

Juicing for Health, part of the MPH Masterclass Kitchens series, contains recipes for a selection of juices for some common ailments: anaemia, the flu, diabetes, gout and high blood pressure, as well as those that boost bone health and improve skin complexion.

“Our bodies are designed with a built-in intelligence that knows how to self repair, self-heal, self-build and self-regenerate,” Ding, the certified Health Coach and Nutritional Consultant, writes. “Our duty then, is to feed our bodies with the right nutrients for it to do its job well.”

 Lemon

 Beetroot

Spinach

Ding introduces us to the types of juicing machines available out there and explains why some are better than others. She also sheds light on the curative properties of some fruits and vegetables, and outlines the protocols of proper and safe juicing.

Full Of Nutrients - Spinach, Lemon & Green Apples Juice

“The beauty of these juice recipes is that they are also designed to taste delicious, so that you can drink them for preventive health maintenance, even if you don’t have the ailments for which they were created to alleviate,” says Ding. “I hope this book will convince you to make juicing a lifestyle.”

Sweet-tasting Beetroot, Green Apples & Lemon Juice

Ding also stressed that, while drinking fresh juices is absolutely beneficial to our bodies, she does not advocate that one should just drink only juice and not eat whole fruits and vegetables. Drinking juices is encouraged because it provides almost immediate absorption of high quality nutrients for the body. When it comes to fiber needs, it is important that one should also consume whole fruits and vegetables.

Fresh Vegetables & Fruits For Juicing

Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer Brand At The Launch

At the book launch, we were also treated to some beetroot, lemon, green apples and spinach juices courtesy of  Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer, the world's first wide mouth slow juicer. We were both quite fascinated with the functionality of the amazing juicer with a wide feed chute that allowed whole apples to be fed in which  minimize nutrient loss (less cutting and air exposure).

  World's First Wide Mouth Slow Juicer In Action

On top of that, this patented Kuving's low-speed system extracts more juice while preserving the natural taste of the fruit or vegetable. I like the quiet operation of the juicer, almost zero-noise and vibration unlike my high speed centrifugal juicer I had at home.

Memorable Photo With Warm & Friendly Sara Ding

We both received a personal signed copy of  Sara Ding's "Juicing for Health" books and just can't wait to embarked on our own juicing journey. Her book is great with easy to follow straight-forward recipes and even includes specific juices for healing of certain ailments.

Besides that, what I like most about her book is that the ingredients are all easy to find and purchase from our local market. Simple day-to-day types of fruits and vegetables like green apples, pineapples, watermelon, lemon, ginger root, carrots, beetroot, broccoli, celery, spinach, lemongrass, bittergourd and many more. 

I would recommended Sara Ding's book for juicing beginners like myself. You see, I am more of a "Prevention-Is-Better-Than-Cure" person; advocating healthy eating to look good and feel good. I always make sure my family consume a balanced and varied diet through my home-cooked meals. Well, with the book now I would want to introduce my children to the benefits of raw fruits and vegetables in form of juices, get them going fit and healthy as always.

La Maison Restaurant ~ Set Lunch Special at Silka Maytower Kuala Lumpur @Masjid India Jalan Munshi Abdullah Kuala Lumpur

Set Lunch Special 
 La Maison Restaurant
 Diwali Delights Celebration 
Silka Maytower Kuala Lumpur
La Maison Restaurant of Silka Maytower Hotel located strategically near Masjid India always had a Special Set Lunch promotion for its patrons.

To celebrate this coming Diwali or Deepavali, The Festival of Lights, La Maison Executive Chef Fazi has crafted out three special mains for the Set Lunch Promotion.

Diwali Delight Lunch Set
RM 25

Diwali Delicious Selections 
 Chicken Paratal, Mutton Varuval or Fish Curry

Diwali Delight Lunch Set is available from 2nd till 21st November, where patrons can enjoy delicious selection with 3 choices from Chicken Paratal, Mutton Varuval or Fish Curry and vegetables served with steamed white rice ala Nasi Kandar, a popular Northern Malaysian dish. This sumptuous lunch set is available from 12 noon to 2:30 pm daily.

 Chef's Fazi 
Fish Curry Special

The first set lunch main dish is the all powering Fish Curry. The fish curry has a strong spice aroma and a very distinctive flavour. Chef Fazi has choose to use the fresh mackerel (tenggiri) fish for this curry. Serving portion was quite generous with 2 thick slices of the fresh white-flesh mackerel fillet. 

To gives it the creamy feel to the curry, the chef uses a healthier option of fresh milk together with coconut milk. Laden with brinjal, ladies fingers and fresh tomatoes, the curry was perfectly done and soon our plate of rice was finished in a jiffy. The gravy was superb, fragrant with fresh herbs and spices adding to the aroma sauce. 

Mutton Varuval

The second Set Lunch Mains is Mutton Varuval. Here Chef Fazi had selected to use top quality lamb which were imported from Australia. The lamb was thinly sliced which makes the cooking process of the mutton more evenly cooked and also easy for the customer to eat it. This is also to ensure that the meat will not be too hard as if it were to be cut as a cube, the meat texture will probably be harder and makes chewing it a challenge.

Amazingly there was no gamey taste of the lamb possibly due to right portion of herbs and spcies that was used to cooked this dish. Well-cooked and  flavourful, another good choice to consider if you love mutton curry!

Chicken Paratal

The third choice is the Chicken Paratal. Chicken pieces are coated with flour batter and deep-fried before it's cooked and tossed with fresh herbs and spices to finish it off.   

As for Chicken Paratal, I was not very fond of it due to the thick coating of the batter for the chicken meat. It's got kind of soggy with boneless chicken pieces and the dish was lacking in taste. I prefer mine cooked without the batter or coatings, just browned in the cooking pan.  

 Lunch Rice Set with 4 sides

Tumeric Fried Cabbage

All the Set lunch set serving comes with Pappadom, Pickled Vegetable. salad and Mamak style fried cabbage. Heavy eater only need pay RM 3 for every additional order of the rice set. What a steal and remember to eat this dish with lots of the heavenly fish curry gravy!

Their Lunch Set comes with an array of appetisers, soup and desserts from the buffet line.

Soup Of The Day

Living up to its name of 'Happy', I was overwhelmed with the richness and creaminess with every spoonful that goes into my mouth.
