Michelle is currently keeping a low-profile in the showbiz work, but her sweet and dazzling smile can never be forgotten. She receded from tv screen after 2010 when she got married. Nonetheless, whenever she appears, people are still drawn to her. Everyone is amazed by her beauty that never seems to age: How come this lady still looks like the girl that first appeared in the telecom ad? You may find the answer unbelievably simple, Michelle says her secret to maintaining a youthful look is to drink more soup and eat more vegetables.
“Drink more water, drink more soup, and eat more vegetables! Especially those Chinese soups with medicinal herbs. They are rich in nutrients and easy to absorb. I drink soup almost every meal.” Knowing that she is not a fan of heavy food, Michelle’s cook carefully prepares her soups using only natural and nutritious ingredients. Among them, snow fungus, peach resin, and porcini are some of the essentials for good skin. “I like natural foods. If you use good ingredients, you don’t need a lot of seasonings.” As a soup-addict, she never forgets to order a soup when she eats out. She even brings her own soup ingredients when travelling with her husband, making sure that she can enjoy soups everywhere. The “Warm Your Soul” series by Green Common – instant Chinese health enhancing soup and congee packs that only need 5 minutes of reheat - can come in handy when Michelle gets no time cooking!
Eating mostly plants is another secret to Michelle’s ageless wonder. Michelle adopts a vegan diet at home. In social and work occasions, she does eat a little bit of meat, but otherwise, she eats very clean. She says, “I have food allergies, so I can’t eat eggs. Carbohydrates upset my stomach as well. I am used to eating clean, with plenty of vegetables in each meal.”
This kind of plant-oriented diet brings Michelle ageless beauty, flawless skin, and makes her glow from within. “I had a very irregular life when I was working in the past. At that time, I always ate takeaways. I didn’t think it was much of a problem back then. Looking back, I realized I was always tired and easily got sick; Whereas now, I feel energetic even when I came back from work or finished an exercise. I feel so much lighter and healthier. I think it’s because I eat mostly plants.”
As a Green Monday Ambassador, Michelle makes an effort to find delicious plant-based food for her friends and families. “My daughter is disgusted by the smell of pork. Omnipork becomes her saviour - She had the steamed pork patty made from Omnipork and said it was marvellous!” Michelle is also a loyal customer of Green Common. She brings her friends to eat at Green Common every time she comes to Hong Kong. “One reason is that I want to get some healthy snacks for myself. Another reason is I want my friends to have an innovative experience of plant-based food. This is how to influence people to Go Green!”
