[HEALTH FOOD] A Healthier You: Specially Curated Packages of Goodness for You and Your Loved Ones


Hello everyone!

Being raised by traditional Chinese parents has got its own perks. For one, it has exposed me to the various traditional Chinese superfoods (which benefits would have otherwise been dismissed as primitive superstitions in today’s westernised world) that have shown effects in supporting and boosting my health and immune system. I’m sure this isn’t unique to my childhood household, but the moment a cough is heard in the house, a flask of luo han guo tea (or lo hon gwo as what my Cantonese mother would say) would be sitting on the kitchen counter within the next two days. During spells of hot weather (and especially times when we had to continuously burn the midnight oil to study or complete a project), we would magically find a pot of chrysanthemum tea brewing atop the stove. Thank you, Mommy ❤️

As our parents age, however, these practices have gotten less common. We, the busy grown-ups, in turn become increasingly reliant on what’s more widely available, such as western medicine and dietary supplements (which might, in fact, not be as beneficial to our health as many thought), to get the nutrients we need although deep down, we know that nothing compares to nature’s gifts as far as our wellbeing is concerned. But for some reasons, we feel daunted by the task of purchasing herbs and other dried goods over the counter (it’s the grumpy and impatient shop assistants at TCM shops for the most part for me 🤪) so we would rather not do that.

What if I told you you can now do your herb shopping with just a few clicks of the mouse? Thanks to A Healthier You, getting your (or your loved ones’) herbal fix has never been so easy!

Their product range is not limited to traditional Chinese herbs only – AHY also caters to the exquisite taste buds by offering floral teas (in their plain organic dried form) and many more, such as the eco-friendlier and more economically-viable alternative to bird’s nest, peach gum. Every batch of goods from their suppliers is personally examined and quality-checked by their staff before packing them into individual containers or bags upon order by customers. This helps to ensure maximum freshness of the products from the packaging line to your doorstep.

Whoop, can't wait to find out what's in the package! I'm not sure if your orders will come in this form, but I thought this would make a good gift hamper!

Whoaaaa so many healthy goodies! You're pampering me, AHY!

Andddd the VERY necessary recipes for each of the products because I can be such a dunce at the kitchen!

Despite their commitment in offering the best possible quality in their products, prices are kept relatively affordable (or rather, low) with the most expensive standard-sized items being their herbal tea blends at S$12. Moreover, all of their products come in very presentable packaging (even the cheapest options!), which makes them ideal for gifting. Instead of sending flower bouquets to your significant other (which is pretty much purely aesthetics 🤷🏻‍♀️), why not show your affection and care for their health with more practical and functional gifts like a container of French rose buds, a glass jar of lavender buds – both of which can be brewed into teas – or, better yet, a box of floral-infused cookies baked by you? Otherwise, you could also consider completing your date night or family dinner with a nutritious home-made gum tragacanth dessert (Psst! Life hack: top ready-made milk pudding with your soaked gum tragacanth to save time) to aid digestion after a hearty meal.

No other people know better than the Chinese themselves how important soups and broths are in both Chinese cuisine and traditional medicine (for all kinds of common ailments, and even pregnancy!). Typically low in calories while providing a clarity of flavours and low oil content, herbal soups are believed to help to restore the balance of yin and yang in the body, and they never fail to bring me immense comfort, especially when the weather gets rough. But somehow the idea of brewing them myself terrifies me because that would mean having to source for the individual ingredients on my own (I don’t even know how to select fresh produce…) and to find out the exact measurements for them. Well, if this thought resonates with you, great news – AHY will now take over these daunting tasks. We’d just need to add some meat and bring the concoction to a boil!

Ginseng Chicken Soup: It was surprisingly easy to prepare! Even though it's stated that I'd need to boil and simmer it for about 1-1.5h, mine was done in about 45min on top of the stove. The longer cooking time is probably applicable to those using slow cooker. I used Kampung chicken and added chicken stock for maximum flavour 😋

Step aside, flower bouquets and over-priced gift hampers, there’s now another way to express our love and concern for our loved ones without having to dig into our pockets, and that’s through A Healthier You! If such concepts of gifting health food packages takes off, I hope AHY could consider selling their products in bundles, or in a form of gift hampers (i.e. for the floral tea and herbal tea blends because these are much easier to brew)!
