Make 2018 Your BIG Year In The Kitchen

It’s that time of the year when we tell ourselves that the new year will be our year; to save money, have a more positive outlook on life, and the most popular –  to lose weight which by extension means eating healthier. The best way to do the latter is by cooking at home. It can be challenging to put this into practice but that’s where we come in, to shift these perceptions and help you fulfil your resolutions of being more conscience of what you consume and trying new things! Here are some small ways you can start your cooking journey in the new year.

Use Ingredients You Grew Up With

Having familiar aromas waft through the kitchen naturally makes us feel more comfortable. It instantly reminds us of home cooked food, whether it was your Mum’s herbal soup or her famous chicken curry. To take away the stress of preparing a curry from scratch, we have ready-made pastes for you to choose from. For more traditional soups, there are lots of local spices available at Malaya Kitchen to cater to a more homey recipe. You’ll be making comfort food from your childhood in no time!

Host More Dinners at Home

With that being said though, if you need a break from the heat but still want to treat yourself to comfort food, the merchants at our stores inIPC and DC Mall will sort your cravings out. Until the next time, we wish you luck in the kitchen and look forward to seeing you eating better and picking up new skills with us next year!

The Best Recipe for Personal Growth

Learning how to make meals for yourself is a valuable skill to have and it makes you even more independent. Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive or time-consuming. It could be as quick as putting together a fruit salad for breakfast. It’s real easy thanks to our Juice Box section that offers various chopped fruits which saves you loads of time. If you’re looking for simple dishes to try at home, look out for our tearable recipe sheets at our Masak Masak corner in our grocers.

Have A Shoulder to Fry On

Having a cooking buddy is just as important as having someone to eat and exercise with; it makes the experience more enjoyable. To turn cooking at home with a friend into a fun challenge, try whipping up something using only a certain kind of food. For example, using onlyhomegrown brands or all organic products. Our well-stocked organic food section is a great place to get ideas!
