MSG-Filled In­stant Noo­dles Vs. Shi­rataki Noo­dles

It’s time to re­place your fa­vorite in­stant cup of com­fort with these mir­a­cle noo­dles. The zero-calo­rie noo­dles con­tain 97 per­cent wa­ter and three per­cent fiber. Glu­co­man­nan, a vis­cous fiber found in shi­rataki noo­dles, re­duces blood sugar and low­ers choles­terol lev­els.

Goto Mon­ster Vs. Ad­lai Caldo

Drank too many cock­tails in the club? These teardrop-shaped grains called ad­lai are known to have sugar-low­er­ing prop­er­ties. A good amount of gar­lic and gin­ger may also help ease nau­sea and al­le­vi­ate pain and headache.

Tap­silog Vs. Tuna with Upo and Okra Seeds

Skip ran­dom trips to the near­est tap­silo­gan and pre­pare a healthy ver­sion at home be­fore go­ing to a party. In­stead of rice, cook upo and okra seeds, both good for di­ges­tion. Rich in min­er­als and omega-3 fatty acids, tuna is said to re­plen­ish lost en­ergy and nu­tri­ents. Op­tional: Add eggs, which have the right amino acids to de­crease tox­ins.

The Greasy Burger Vs. The Real Mush­room Burger

Por­to­bello mush­rooms make good buns, too. In­stead of us­ing white bread buns, pop the huge mush­rooms into the oven for a few min­utes. Mush­rooms are packed with se­le­nium and B vi­ta­mins. They are a good source of an­tiox­i­dants and nu­tri­ents vi­tal in detox­i­fi­ca­tion pro­cesses.
