Well, I ate chicken rice and salad but not together though that would have been a possibility at my mum's dining table (back in the good old days lah).
My dad has been at home since being discharged from the hospital some two weeks ago. After staying at the hospital for some three weeks (and having hospital food), he is now eating with a vengeance. His gastronomic pleasure of choice - chicken rice!
Well, I have been ordering chicken rice for my parents via Grabfood (not everyday though). If that is what they enjoy eating, I am more than happy to fulfill their request. Since my mum does not know how to use the camera function on her phone, I have no idea what the chicken rice looked like.
This order is from 1977 New Ipoh Chicken Rice@Damansara Jaya. My dad's typical order (mum follows suit) is chicken rice with added siew yoke and char siew.
I am happy that my dad had developed a healthy appetite and eating more meat. As I have said before, protein is a very important macro nutrient, not just for growing children but also for the aged. Do not, I repeat, do not be afraid of protein.
Protein is required to build and maintain muscle mass and for tissue repair. It is also important for your skin, hair and bone health.
1977 Ipoh Chicken Rice is currently giving out a RM10.00 voucher for minimum spend of RM50.00 for dine-in only. Hmmm...maybe my partner and I could pop by one of the weekends for dinner.
Yesterday I had salad for lunch. I figured that if I can't go carnivore when eating out, the next best option is to go ketovore - protein + (low carb) veggies.
The description on the menu - Grilled chicken masala, avocado, lave egg, quinoa, cashew, roasted cauliflower, corn, cherry tomatoes, mesclun greens, mint, kasturi, yogurt & pomegranate dressing.
Well, I am happy with my meals. Burrrpp!!!
