4 Healthy Meals That Can Be Made from Grocery Staples


Families that eat healthy meals together stay together and it starts in your home kitchen. Moreseo, we have a global health crisis that we’re mostly experiencing because of the coronavirus. It’s inevitable not to arm ourselves with healthy dishes to defend against these viruses that we don’t know when it will hit us. But, do you know that you can make healthy meals from grocery staples or things you usually see in your home kitchen? Here are four basic healthy meals that do wonders for your immunity and health, we curated just for you:


1. Ensaladang Talong


Eggplants or (talong in Filipino) are incredibly rich in antioxidant properties, specifically the kind that’s shown to prevent cell damage, especially in the brain. Another thing we love about this vegetable is that it makes for an addictively quick salad. Yes, you got it right! You can make your own Ensaladang Talong recipe, or Filipino Eggplant Salad at home.


2. Ginisang Ampalaya


Bitter gourd (or melon) is rich in vitamins C and A and one of the home favorites of most Filipinos, which also usually part of their grocery list when looking for vegetables. For this dish, the vegetable is sautéed with egg, tomato, onion, and sometimes garlic, shrimp, or pork, but the bitter gourds are always the star.


3. Lumpiang Sariwa


This one pretty much requires more effort than the other meals on the list. You need to thinly slice sweet potato, cabbage, carrots, lettuce, string beans - as thin as it gets for a perfect serving. Don’t give up on chopping and wrapping them up, because once it comes all together in your mouth with the sweet sauce and peanuts, everything is super worth it. You can also add shrimp for the filling if you want to!


4. Tuna Sandwich


We’re pretty sure you’ve stocked up on canned tuna on your freezer almost everyday, especially when this quarantine period was announced and extended by the local government unit, so this is a quick and easy snack with no flap. Simply combine tuna flakes, onion, and mayonnaise in a bowl. Spread it over some tasty bread, add some sliced tomatoes and cucumber, and you’re ready for some awesome and tasty snack! Happy eating!
