Hi guys, I wish everyone stay safe and stay healthy during this FMCO. As for me, besides work from home, I have been exploring new recipes to cook at home. Nowadays I can easily search for many interesting recipes via social media like YouTube videos and Facebook videos, just like last Sunday I learnt 2 new Healthy Versatile U.S. Potatoes Recipes on MY Potatoes USA Facebook Live Cooking Demo by certified dietitian Georgen Thye ้ƒ‘ไปฒๆฐ. The 2 recipes are U.S. Potato Egg Pancake and Thai Style Loaded U.S. Lattice Fries, do check out these fun recipes and cooking methods at the later part of this article. 

Healthy Versatile U.S. Potatoes featuring Georgen Thye's Recipes:
U.S. Potato & Egg Pancake
Thai Style Loaded U.S. Lattice Fries

I enjoyed watching the cooking demo by Georgen and I love the 2 recipes presented by him, they are easy to prepare yet delicious and nutritious! I also learnt cooking tips and the nutritional goodness of U.S. Potatoes.

MY Potatoes USA Facebook Live Cooking Demo by certified dietitian, Georgen Thye ้ƒ‘ไปฒๆฐ

"I am extremely happy to collaborate with U.S. Potatoes to look at the versatility in the usage of U.S. Potatoes and share their nutritional benefits, especially amidst these pandemic times, to ensure everyone can cook up a nutritious meal. This is great news for those who work from home now," said Georgen. 

U.S. Potatoes Nutritional Goodness


Zero fat, no sodium and no cholesterol. One medium U.S. Potato gives you 110 calories of easy-to-digest calories, making more energy-dense than any other popular vegetables.

Carbohydrates are a key source of energy for muscles. A medium sized potato contains 26 grams of carbohydrates.


Vitamin C aids in collagen production, assists with iron absorption, helps to heal wounds and keeps gums healthy. Vitamin C may help to support body's immune system. This is also good news that functional food such as potato can help to boost the immune system naturally, especially great during Covid times. One medium size potato provides about 30% of our daily value, 27 milligrams of Vitamin C.


Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays important role in carbohydrate and protein metabolism. It helps the body to make non-essential amino acids needed to make various body proteins. It is a co-factor for several co-enzymes involved in energy metabolism and is required for the synthesis of hemoglobin - an essential component of red blood cells. One medium potato provides 10% of the recommended daily value.

Protein is the building block for growth and a key component of muscles, ligaments and connective tissues. Potato has 3 grams of plant-based protein per serving.

Potassium regulates fluids and mineral balance in and out of cells and helps to maintain normal blood pressure. Potassium is vital for transmitting nerve impulses or signals and helps in muscles contract. One medium size skin on potato contains 620 milligrams of potassium or 15% DV of potassium.

Dietary fiber is a complex carbohydrate and is the part of the plant material that cannot be digested and absorbed in the bloodstream. Soluble fiber may help with weight loss as it makes us feel full longer. One medium size potato with skin contributes 2 grams of fiber, or 7% of the DV per serving.

U.S. Potatoes Nutritional Goodness

"I prefer U.S. Potatoes as the potatoes are grown in favourable soil, in ideal growing conditions and with plentiful water," said Georgen.

BiO-LiFE Proutix ~ Probiotics for Women


When it comes to consuming supplements, we often think of the different kind of vitamins that needed by our body, or maybe calcium for stronger bones, or maybe collagen for maintaining a firmer shining skin, or maybe fish oil for omega-3 fatty acids, and the list goes on. As a woman, I never aware on paying attention to take care of woman's vagina health issue, until recently I came to explore on this new product BiO-LiFE Proutix.


In a healthy women's vagina, it consists of a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria (generally dominated by lactobacillus) that helps to maintain a healthy vaginal environment and prevent vaginal infections.


Taking probiotics can help in replenishing beneficial bacteria and restoring the disrupted balance of vaginal microbiota. Study showed that 4 weeks oral consumption of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14 has significantly increase lactobacillus population (beneficial bacteria) in the vaginal flora. It can help in protecting vaginal health via a few mechanisms:-

๐ŸŒฟ Maintain vaginal acidity at pH 3.8 - 4.4 that favours the growth of beneficial bacteria but detrimental to the growth of bad bacteria
๐ŸŒฟ Form a natural barrier against bad bacteria at the surface of the vaginal wall
๐ŸŒฟ Produce antimicrobial substances and hydrogen peroxide that kill bad bacteria


BiO-LiFE Proutix contains both widely researched probiotics strains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14. It is a probiotics supplement specially formulated to improve women's vaginal health.



Benefits of Proutix

๐Ÿ€ Halal certified
๐Ÿ€ Safe for long term consumption
๐Ÿ€ Suitable for pregnant women
๐Ÿ€ Clinically proven probiotics strains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14
๐Ÿ€ Special Micro-Encapsulation to protect the 'live' probiotic cultures from gastric acid
๐Ÿ€ Restore balance of microflora in women's urogenital system
๐Ÿ€ Reduce risk of getting urogenital discomforts
๐Ÿ€ Vegetable-based capsule
