Is anyone here who eats bitter gourd or bitter melon? In the Philippines it is known as "Ampalaya" in Filipino language.

Many of us especially children do not like to eat this kind of vegetable-fruit because of its bitter taste. But somehow, there are good benefits that we need to know about bitter gourd and some of those benefits are as follows:

  • Helps in maintaining blood sugar levels and lowers bad cholesterol.

  • Makes glowing skin and lustrous hair and also good for our eyes.

  • Cures hangovers and cleanses the liver.

  • Helps in weight loss and boosts our immune system.

And now to help you enjoy eating bitter gourd as one of your dishes that you can cook and serve with the family, I'm going to share an easy and simple way of cooking. This recipe is called "Amplaya con Carne".

I'm excited, so let's start our cooking!
