Confinement is over almost a month now and to be frank, I'm missing the food already, haha.
To me, aunty Lisa (the confinement lady) is quite good in cooking and she has fast hands. But of course, this is my first confinement thus I can't compare much, but I'm very satisfied anyway.
Below are those food and drinks I had during my confinement.
1. Mum bought me Wincarnis medicated wine which said to strengthen the body after childbirth. Besides this, I finished 2-3 bottles of DOM (mixed in food), also chicken essence and Eu Yan Sang american ginseng tea.
2. Sheng Hua Tang (生化汤) to help clear the lochias.
3. So Hup pills (苏合丸) in ginger juice, to dispel wind from the body.
4. Chicken essence soup with DOM, I had a big bowl of this almost every night...
5. My only drinks during confinement, red dates boil with dried longan, wolfberries and other chinese herbs. I like this and already drinking even before I deliver.
6. Pork ribs with black fungus in sweet sauce, one of my favourite.
7. Pork with sweet honey sauce, also my favourite.
8. Steamed chicken soup, yumz...
9. Braised pork knuckle with black vinegar, my all time favourite. Eat alone with plain rice is good enough.
10. I also had eggs after the 12th day, and pork belly with ginger.
11. Soup is a must have, I have tried few kinds of them.
12. Everytime after finishing the big bowl of soup, I would sweat like a pig.. LOL.
13. Steamed and fried fishes...
14. All kinds of greens....
15. I love all of them cause I am a vege lover ;)
16. As for dessert, I had bird nest and white fungus with papaya.
18. For breakfast, I usually had misua which is actually quite boring la.. So sometimes I would just eat the ready-pack grain porridge, or milo with cereal.
Not to foget I had a big plate of rice in every meal during the 40 days confinement (luckily I am a rice person). No wonder they say don't think about losing weight during confinement cause it's quite impossible haha. So I listened and ate as much as I could, LOL.
As a result, now I am on my way in shredding those extra fats which is super difficult. Some friends commented I have lost quite alot of weight already but no, I just hide them ;)
Well, determination and patience are all I need. Wish me luck~
