Low Sodium Diet - with Tagalog translation

Dear Wife,

Due to popular demand, I am coming up with more special diet recipes. This one is low sodium.

According to the American Diabetes Association our bodies require 220 mg sodium (salt) per day.But average person normally takes in almost 5,000 mg per day. The ADA recommends that people with diabetes should keep their daily sodium to less than 3,000 mg and those with mild or moderate hypertension stay under 2,400 mg per day.

But it does not necessarily mean that we should cut sodium completely from our diets. We need it as much as we need vitamins. The word is moderation.

So here is a low sodium diet recipe. Sa tagalog "mababang asin na recipe". Kaya ho mababa dahil paglagay ninyo ng asin, ibaba ninyo yong palayok. (aray, nagbibiro lang ho si pusa.)

Disclaimer: The translation does not make the recipe not authentic.

Scrambled Eggs on a Mountain

  • 2 tbsps vegetable oil or corn oil

  • Dalawang kutsara ng langis na piniga sa gulay o sa mais.

  • 2 eggs

  • Dalawang itlog. Ang mag-isip ng bastos ay may bastos na isip.

  • pepper and herbs (optional)

  • paminta. hindi ko ho alam sa Tagalog ang herbs. puwede kayang damo?

  • salt or salt substitute (garlic salt)

  • asin o kaya yong nagpapanggap na siya ay asin.

    Use eggs only-no cream, milk or water

    Gamitin lang ang itlog na uhaw. Walang gatas at walang tubig.

    1.Beat eggs several hours in advance preferably the night before.

    Bugbugin ang itlog ng walang patumangga. Kung maari isang gabi.

    2.Keep in refrigerator until cooking time.

    Itago sa predyeretor.

    3.Briely beat up eggs again and season with pepper, herbs and salt.

    Bugbugin ulit pero ngayon kunting awa naman. Lagyan ng paminta, asin at damo. Araay sakit.

    4.Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan, pour in the eggs and just as the eggs begin to set, slip one prong of a large fork underneath the eggs across the pan.

    Initin ang langis sa kawali, ibuhos ang itlog. Pag nakita ninyong medyo kampante na ang itlog at gusto ng mahiga sa kawali, iangat ito sa pamamagitan ng isang ngipin ng malaking tinidor. Ano siya sinusuwerte eh kung dumikit siya ng tuluyan sa kawali.

    5.Rotate the fork slowly to roll the egg up on fork as it cooks and to let the uncooked part move to the edge of the pan.

    Haba naman nito pero sige na nga translate ko pa rin. Paikutin ang tinidor para ang itlog ay umikot din. (natural noh). Hayaang yong hindi pa lutong itlog ay magbakwet sa gilid ng kawali.

    6.When most of the egg is cooked raise the fork, pulling the center of the eggs up unto a high mountain and letting the rest of the uncooked eggs roll against the side of the pan. Then slip it off onto a warm serving platter.

    Mas mahaba ito. Sandali hinga muna. Kapag luto na ang binugbog na itlog, itaas ang tinidor at hilain pataas para makagawa ng bundok habang ang mga hindi pa lutong itlog ay magkaripasan sa gilid ng kawali. Ilagay sa isang plato. Pag hindi mataas ang nilutong bugbog na itlog, palitan ang pangalan na Scrambled Egg on a hill.

    OOPs baka magalit sa houseonahill.

    Bye, tatakbo muna ako.
