Going Japanese with Kani RollÂ

Noods Without the GuiltÂ
Give your instant noodles and ramen a break by trying out this HK fried-style noodles recipe. Full of flavor but a lot less MSG, it’s an awesome dish when you’re in the mood for something filling. If you want to step this health factor up a notch, you can ditch the siomai and have some fried tofu instead.
Mexican on a BudgetÂ
Mexican food may have a bad rep for being mostly on the unhealthy side, but you can put a nutritious twist to it with this Healthy Tortilla Recipe. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already, so preparing this for merienda would be a total breeze. You just have to add some hot sauce if you want to step up its spice factor.
A Pinoy Favorite Made HealthyÂ
The classic Pinoy comfort food sisig usually contains pork, but you can give it a guilt-free makeover by using mushrooms as the main ingredient instead. This mushroom recipe will be an instant hit as pulutan or as a savory ulam. It even looks like ‘real’ sisig, so you wouldn’t even see the difference.
It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but that doesn’t mean you should overeat all day every day. With the healthy dish ideas from Lunch Boxers, you can take a much-needed break from all the sweets and decadent feasts. You can kick-start your balik-alindog program with these yummy dishes!
