Spices Pepes Tempeh

in Plant Power (Vegan)2 months ago


Hello everyone,
As you all know, for the past 3 months I have been living a healthy lifestyle, exercising diligently, maintaining my diet and doing mental therapy. There are many things that I change to live longer, because I've become a diabetic and it scares me so I have to change and become a healthier person.

Diabetes is a disease that is a 'silent killer', high blood sugar can make your blood not function properly, the blood that is pumped by the heart, cannot maintain the organs properly, like in healthy people. This is what scares me and I try to live a healthier life, even though in reality I haven't been able to change completely, because I believe that everything takes steps and can't change suddenly.

One of the activities that I often do is exercising consistently, every morning I walk or run in the park as much as 4 to 6 kilometers, depending on the condition of my body, I don't force my body to do extreme activities. Then in the afternoon I continue doing pilates or weight lifting with simple dumbbells for 30 to 45 minutes. I work on getting myself moving and burning off the energy I eat.

I learned a lot about health and exercise, one of which is the knowledge that I apply, such as consuming lots of protein and fiber to help me lose weight and maintain glucose in my blood properly, and it works really well. Protein will really help me in recovering from fatigue from exercising, where protein will turn into amino acids and fat will turn into amino acids. That's what made me lose up to 6 kilograms in 3 months.



I adjust my diet, reducing fried foods and using oil. I like to make food by steaming and boiling, but I know that such food will be difficult for me to eat because it must be bland and taste bad. However, I didn't give up, I looked for lots of healthy recipes without making the food served fried.

Pepes are one of the most effective methods of cooking food rich in spices, just like making pepes tempeh which I will show you today. This is one way to cook tempeh without frying it, as you all know that fried tempeh is the highest caste in serving tempeh. Tempeh is very rich in protein, even tempeh is a cheap source of protein that can be obtained easily in Indonesia.

So, are you curious about the pepes tempeh recipe that I'm going to make this time? lets check this recipe, Hivers!
