Count the Calories

I used to count the calories that I have in my meal everyday but lose track of it and started to gain more pounds again. I am now ten pounds heavier. Can you tell how many calories do I have in this meal. I had this for lunch during the launch of Football Clinic held at Shangri-La. There is about 348 calories for salmon alone. Now count the rest.

Here’s more information about Soyami for the kid’s healthy tomorrow.

Moms always want to start teaching their kids the value of a healthy eating habit. Offering your kids a variety of healthy food choices will help them to become healthy eating patterns that last a lifetime.

Soy-enhanced foods can add variety and nutritive value to children’s diet without sacrificing taste. Soy foods are readily accepted and enjoyed by children and adolescents as tasty alternatives to meat and dairy.

Incorporating soy into meals help decrease fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calories, and increase fiber, while still providing children with key vitamins and minerals.

Soy contains many essential nutrients important for growth and development, and works well as a primary source of protein without contributing excess calories.
