Dinner sessions with family and friends during weekend are common practices for majority of us, thus over-consuming unhealthy food such as junk foods, oily foods and etc always happen which might probably lead to “Monday Blue” instead of merely don’t feel like going to work. Part of the reason is that unhealthy foods require extra energy from our body to digest it which may cause us to feel sleepy and lazy after a meal session. Hence, Green Monday Malaysia is created to encourage everyone to consume more light dishes and turn your “Monday Blue” into “Green Monday”! It is an honor to invite our beloved Malaysia Super Model – Amber Chia to “Green Monday” with us!

Amber revealed that the calories of relevant dishes will be stated down clearly inside the menu of every restaurant in United States. This is part of the policies that constructed by the government of United States for the purpose of educating and conveying the knowledge regards to the nutrition of particular food in order to help the citizens on preventing the opportunity that being diagnosed for illness due to unhealthy diet habits. “Develop a healthy body begin from adjusting your diet habits.

Nevertheless, sweet food doesn’t really stimuli my appetite currently, instead, ‘green’ food are my preference now.”
“It is always a hard time at the beginning of the process on adjusting our diet habits especially for people who fancy junk foods and heavy foods a lot as healthy food always come with lighter taste.

The ‘green’ dishes help you on maintaining your healthy lifestyle and body instead of harming you.
Amber mentioned that, “Humans will only start thinking of the important about having a healthy diet habit when they fall sick.” In fact, every one of us understands the important of healthy diet habit, whereas people tend to neglect the value of healthiness when we are in healthy condition. “Healthy diet habits should be cultivated since young age as it is one of the ways to maintain our health condition.” Amber adjusted her diet habit into vegetarian few years ago, instead of helping her to maintain her body shape, consuming ‘green’ dishes boosted up her energy and maintaining the good condition of her skin as well.
Amber suggested part of the way to begin on persuades and influences people on developing a healthy diet habit is to apply and practice such a great culture in her Professional Make Up & Modeling Academy – Amber Chia Academy. “Few years of experiencing throughout the process of transferring from Omnivorous to a vegetarian allow me to acquire some knowledge and experiences towards healthy lifestyle.

I would recommend them to begin from consuming more fruits, vegetables and follow the footsteps of Green Monday Malaysia activity in order to adjust the unhealthy diet habits.”
It is hard to look for ‘green’ dishes? It is an excuse!
Amber doesn’t always cook at home due to heavy workload. “It is really hard to look for a restaurant that provides ‘green’ dishes ten years back from now. Whereas vegetarian and organic food restaurants are launched everywhere, there is no excuse for you to mention about a ‘green’ restaurant is difficult to search for.” Green Monday Malaysia encourage the public to consume vegetarian food on every Monday, however, it is not trying to persuade you to dine in a vegetarian restaurant as you are allow to consume any ‘green’ dishes that provide by all the restaurants. Amber recommends us to begin from eating salad. “Salads are supplied by majority of the restaurants on the planet; people who just joined Green Monday Malaysia activity are encouraged to begin from eating salad onwards as this was my starting point from cultivating a healthy diet habit. Besides that, consume a variety of food platters will helps you to create the satiety.”
