Eating Well with Yang Sheng Le (养生乐)

I am not much of a cook, but since my wife is pregnant, I decided to whip up something for her last night as a surprise.

It was a good thing I was introduced to Yang Sheng Le (养生乐) by a friend. Yang Sheng Le is a collaboration product between Maggi and Eu Yan Sang. To me, it’s like “instant nutritious herbal soup for time-starved folks” like myself. Key properties include:

* All Natural
* No Preservatives
* No Added MSG
* No Added Artificial Colouring/ Flavouring
* Easily prepared in minutes

It’s easily available at leading supermarkets and all Eu Yan Sang outlets. I picked up a bottle of the Yang Sheng Le Cordyceps Concentrated Herbal Soup, together with some chicken bits, mushroom and silken tofu on my way home from a NTUC supermarket.

When I got home, I took less than 30 minutes to prepare a large bowl of yummy Cordyceps Chicken Herbal Soup that can serve four people.

First, just wash all the ingredients and then chop them into smaller pieces. At the same time, I heated a pot of water to boiling temperature before emptying the Yang Sheng Le content into it. This was followed by all the other ingredients into the pot. Then, just wait 20 minutes for the soup to cook and voila, dinner is served!

The wife was very happy I cooked her something tonight. I was happy to see her eat well. Usually, Rachel is the one who does the cooking. A role reversal is fun sometimes.

Good soup = happy wife = happy husband
