Registered Dietitian of British Columbia, Canada and Council Member of the Hong Kong Nutrition Association, Dr Susan CHUNG said, “Mussels, which contain rich protein and low fat, can help with weight control. Lycopene, a plant compound that is believed to improve health and reduce risks of diseases, can be absorbed more easily from cooked tomatoes and tomato sauce. Pork chops are rich in protein and iron, the latter of which helps prevent anaemia. The cooking method of stewing does not require cooking oil, thus reducing the fat intake. Onions, when cooked, take on a refreshing sweetness. The use of ready-made seasonings can then be minimised.”
