If you ask me what’s my favorite breakfast, I’ll tell you it’s jam on toast. Yes, I’m boring like that. But I’m leery that jam can be too sweet and so I’m selective too. Last year, I found St Dalfour’s fruit spread and between my son and me, we’ve consumed a number of bottles now. They’re made of real fruits and juice concentrate, and are absolutely delicious. The best thing? This vegan jam is low in glycemic index (GI) and that means it’s pretty safe for my skin.
Happy Lunar New Year to all my Chinese friends! How has your first day of celebrations been so far? I’m sure many of you have had a food-filling time! Well, mine has been packed to the brim with all sorts of goodies but I want to show you a traditional dish I’d prepared for breakfast this morning. This is a very common sweet soup familiar to most Chinese—it is not only tasty but is choke-full of beauty benefits for our skin. The best part is, anybody can cook it! So come, follow me as I show you an easy peasy step-by-step process of preparing this dish.
I never used to drink much Chinese tea, at least not daily. It’s something that I consume only when I visit a Chinese restaurant. So while I know about Pu-Erh tea and probably drank it a couple of times before, I don’t remember how it taste. However, since reading a beauty tip about the benefits of this tea, I went out to grab a tin and have since, been drinking a cup of Pu-Erh tea every day. Aside from drinking, I’ve also been including this beverage in my beauty routines. How? Read on to find out. (^_^)
How many of you are turned off by the thought of eating bird’s nest? NO…you gotta be kidding me! Because I absolutely love them in spite of their unsavory origins. My mom used to prepare them quite regularly for me when I was growing up and naturally, I was influenced by her belief in their health and beauty benefits. Come to think of it, I really miss the taste of her double-boiled bird’s nest soup with ginseng slices and egg. *SLURPS*
Okay, here’s the scoop on the latest supplement I’m on. Why, don’t look so surprised now. If you do, it means you’re not a follower of this blog because regulars know how much I love to try supplements as much as trying skincare products. HA. And yes, I know that fresh foods are better but you know what? I can’t get fresh Acai where I am based. So this Madre Labs Simply Acai Organic Powder is to me, a godsend!
