What to do when you have a "Simpul Biawak"  or Leg Muscle Cramps


Simpul biawak or leg muscle cramps happen when your muscle  contracts on its own involuntarily resulting in a spasm. 









Why do I get cramps? It is because of any of the following reasons:  -  your muscles are tired  - your muscles are overused -  your body is dehydrated - you lost much pottassium and magnesium affecting the way your muscles work - if you are 65 or older - you are at higher risk  to get muscle cramps - you have any of these conditions - diabetes or hypothyroidism - athletes performing in a high intensity, long duration sports
What to do? Immediately stop the activity that triggers the cramp.  - Dont go against the cramps. - Breathe gently through your nose and exhale through your mouth. - Lightly stretch the muscles following the directions of the cramp and once cramps has subsided, stretch slowly against it.  - Only lightly massage the area while stretching it.  - Keep the area warm. Apply heat pad…
Wholemeal, wholegrain and wholewheat....?


Wholemeal, wholegrain and wholewheat describes bread that are made using  unrefined “wholegrain” flour.
Whole wheat means that the bread is made from the entire wheat kernel
Wholegrain means the bread was made using the entire kernel, which offers the most nutritional value.  Whole grain means that the bread can be made of any whole-grain kernel. That grain may be wheat or it could be another grain like spelt, oats, or barley. Wholegrains are healthy because they are rich in antioxidants bound with B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and folate) and minerals (calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium, protein and fibre.
Recommendations? Get bread that uses a mix of wholegrains, such as  barley, rolled oats, millet or rye. Rye bread is excellent for digestion and helps prevent constipation. 
Note: What about Multigrain? 5-grain or 7-grain don’t always mean they use wholegrain in their formula.  As for which is healthiest, just go for br…
How to eat SPICY foods during  Ramadhan? Good thing about spicy food? Spicy food's content - chilli and pepper contain capsaicin, a substance that can boost your metabolism and help you maintain a healthy weight.
But then, after a day of empty stomach while fasting, you are taking a high risk of diarrhoea if you chomp on spicy food. 
But that Tom Yam Kooong looks appetising..and you MUST have it..so can you?
Eat your Phoenix dactilyfera first...huh? Whats that? Dates...korma..thamar..
- has good fibre (even better than banana!) and is anti-constipation. How?  Dates  correct the mineral content deregulation that occurs during constipation. To prevent constipation, we need a minimum of 20 to 35 grams of fiber every day to make our stools soft. 100 grams of dates has 8 g of fibre. (100 grams of banana has about 2.6 g of fibre) 



To dilute the effects of spiciness to your stomach, drink Green or Oolong Teas
Green tea and oolong tea have been shown to increase metabolism by 4–5%. These tea…
Ooooi! Sedaaapnyaaa!
Boleh kah kita makan begini ketika berpuasa? (Jawapannya di penghujung artikel ini).
Maklumlah trend terkini "jalan2 cari makan" di Bazaar Ramadhan dan di gerai2 makan yang mempromosikan kelainan dengan berbagai makanan jumbo, yang fusion yang beraneka rasa dan rupa, serta menyemarakkan citarasa tekak, terutama sekali bagi mereka yang lapar.

Ramadhan, dengan berpuasanya kita, adalah satu bulan paling mudah untuk kita menjaga kesihatan. 

Namun demikian, banyak pula terjadi kembong perut dan penyakit yang bersangkut paut dengan ketidak- hazaman,  naik nya berat badan dan malahan kencing manis yang tidak terkawal, semua dek pengambilan makanan yg tinggi kandungan gula, garam dan lemak yang berlebihan dan pengambilan air yang berkurangan.

Alangkah ruginya Ramadhan jika hasilnya ialah kesihatan yang terjejas lantas menjejaskan keberkesanan kita untuk melakukan ibadah termasuk sholat terawih dll.

Bersahor adalah "sarapan" anda semasa anda berpuasa.Ia pent…
Who hates to eat veggies?

But Mommy says veggies are good for us.

Well, mommies (and Nutritionists!) are right!

Vegetables contain fibre (which helps regularity in bowel movements and great for handling your cholesterol level) and good sources of vitamins to aid physiological functions.  Fibre  is so important, particularly with all the processed foods these days. Many simply aren't getting the fiber they need.

Some, particularly children, might have a love-hate relationship with vegetables. Vegetables feels tasteless (or even yucky!) And most might just force-eat it in need for its nutritiousness.

How do you boost veggies intake?How to  get your kids AND your family to eat their greens?

The trick is (and what often works!) is finding a way to eat vegetables without feeling like you’re doing it. So how does that work?

1. Sneak in your veggies! Make your shepherd's pies like normal, but use pureed cauliflower in addition to cheese.

2. Make smoothies using spinach. Spinach adds…
