One of the thing that love to eat is a fried breaded meat, a Schnitzel. It can be any type, from Wiener Schnitzel to Tonkatsu to 炸猪排. Because I have relatively high LDL, one of the thing I try to reduce is oil. Most schnitzel only taste crunchy good only if they are deep-fried. Now I have learned, from the book The Science of Good Cooking, the trick to make a healthy crunchy baked pork chop. You just need an oven to make this.
It is so good that it won 1st price in cooking competition. If you want to learn more about the recipe, do check it out at our sister blog "The Yummy Journey".

Orthorexia nervosa, the “health food eating disorder”, gets its name from the Greek word ortho, meaning straight, proper or correct. This exaggerated focus on food can be seen today in some people who follow lifestyle movements such as “raw”, “clean” and “paleo”.
There is a blurry line separating “normal” healthy eating and orthorexia nervosa, but one way to define the condition is when eating “healthily” causes significant distress or negative consequences in a person’s life.
Such behaviours can have a significant impact on relationships with family members and friends, let alone on their mental health.
They note distinct pathological behaviours with orthorexia nervosa, including a motivation for feelings of perfection or purity rather than weight loss, as they see with anorexia and bulimia.
As a nutritionist and a recovered sufferer of bulimia, I leave you with some advice:
Don’t trust all-devoted kale consumers, including health professionals and celebrities, if their advice isn’t based on scientific evidence.
Don’t make food the most important focus of your life. As Bratman says, "rather than eat my sprouts (or kale) alone, it would be better for me to share a pizza with some friends."
Try to be a balanced food consumer with a “mostly and sometimes” mantra.
