I need my calcium supply but the thing is, I don’t like drinking milk and I don’t eat that much green vegetables either. So when I was introduced to AusPro Dr Oatcare, I thought it might work for me because this is a nutritious blend with 76.6% wholegrain ingredients consisting mainly of Montana Embryo Oats plus 17 organic seeds, 9 mixed nuts, seaweed derived calcium and flaxseed oil. Woah…what a combination! Whole grain ingredients, lactose free, plant-based calcium, and dietary fiber. In addition, the blend is cholesterol free, made with no trans fat, no flavorings, no additives, no preservatives, and is suitable for vegetarians. Sounds really healthy but the first thing that I asked was, is this going to taste awful?
As you can tell, I’m on an iHerb spree this season. I must have made like three hauls over the past two months and just trying out new stuff. Apart from beauty products, supplements appeal to me too particularly if they’ve got some beauty benefits. Like these: Midori Greens and Eureka Berries from Madre Labs.
Look what’s for my breakfast recently—snacks from iHerb! Yeah, I realized that iHerb stocks some great snacks, many of which are not available here or are a lot cheaper compared to what we get off the shelves. So I’ve been ordering a few items to try and found these that make for a quick, nutritious and great tasting breakfast—oatmeal and wild berry mix. And all I need is a bowl and hot water and my breakfast is ready in an instant!
I didn’t know that Garbanzo beans are the same as chickpeas until recently. Well, I was eating quite a bit of chickpeas at one stage and they were always in dried form, which required soaking and then steaming. These canned Garbanzo beans on the other hand, only require steaming and they’re ready to be eaten. Some people use these to add to their salad but I like to eat it like a snack. They were great for me when I was undergoing a body detox to get rid of my acne as these beans are a high source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fibers. They definitely helped me to purge whatever toxic stuff that was dormant in my intestines! Haha.
