Roselle Learns To Cook Wellnesized Dishes

It was November 2015 when I attended the launch of Nestle's I Can't Believe It's Breakfast Recipe Book. It was also the first time I met Chef Tess Sutilo. I was so excited when I received an invite from Nestle last week. I've been struggling to eat healthy and Chef Tess' new recipe book is heaven sent.

What is #Wellnessize?

According to Nestle Wellness Club, to wellnessize is to take small steps to Wellness. In order to live a healthy lifestyle, we must start with eating healthy. I try to include fruits and vegetables in my meals. I consume more fish and chicken instead of pork and beef.  The problem is, I'm running out of ideas of dishes to cook.

Nestle gave me a copy of the Wellnessize Your Delectable Dishes and the Budget-Friendly Everyday Wellness Recipes. The timing was so perfect because I have started the #RoselleLearnsToCook on my food Instagram @foodiecheatday but have not cooked anything decent yet. It's just great that I'll be able to feature healthy dishes soon!

I'll be sharing with you one the recipes in the Wellnessize Your Delectable Dishes Recipe Book. I've had three servings of this so I assure you it's delicious.

I've been preparing Tofu Sisig at home and now I've got a new tofu dish to serve the family for appetizer. 

Good to know: Tofu is a good source of protein and contains all the essential amino acids needed by the body.
