Marcus KWOK – Pot Rice Dish with More Veggies than Meat

Having lived in different parts of the world, Marcus has gained certain knowledge of various culinary cultures. He holds admiration for different types of cuisine from all over the world, believing each cuisine has its own merits. “Indonesian dishes feature sauces that are made with a variety of natural ingredients. In Korean dishes, you can find various vegetables, along with garlic and spring onions that are included for seasoning purposes. These ingredients are not only beneficial for our body, but also give the dishes a more appealing and colourful appearance.” Marcus has a particular liking Korean dishes, many of which contain more vegetables than meat. When preparing himself a healthy and delicious meal at home, Marcus prefers bibimbap (a Korean rice dish served in a hot stone pot) and a bowl of soybean paste stew.

Homemade Fruit and Veggie Juice

Like many people who have a hectic work schedule, Marcus sometimes has difficulty in maintaining an adequate daily intake of fruit and vegetables. He often makes himself mixed juice using various fruits and veggies. To eat more fibre, he drinks the juice along with the pulp. He explained, “Fruit and veggie juice is rich in vitamins and fibre. It keeps the digestive system running smoothly and makes me feel light, relaxed and energised. To avoid loss of nutrients, it is better to drink the juice as soon as possible after squeezing.’
