Spring rolls and spring cakes are snacks from beginning of spring, and there are many kinds and some exquisite ones.
First of all, let’s talk about the raw materials.
The crust of most spring rolls is a dough crust, while in the Philippines [spring rolls] crust is rice crust made of rice pulp. There are more kinds of fillings wrapped in the crust, mostly crisp fresh vegetables with marinated cooked meat, eggs and seafood, as well as pure meat stuffing, or sweet stuffing such as bean paste and sugar powder.
Judging from the production method, spring cakes are usually eaten directly with the crust rolled into the stuffing, while traditional Chinese spring rolls are mostly fried after the crust rolled into the stuffing.

Beginning of spring eats spring cakes and rolls to pray for health and blessing. So, how to eat is the healthy way?
Judging from the raw materials and making methods of the spring rolls and cakes just now, the spring cakes that have not been fried are actually healthier.
Especially for the middle-aged and elderly people with chronic diseases, eat less fried spring rolls, eat one or two, and don’t eat too much to avoid excessive oil intake.
