Black-Out Saturday!!

Image
As we woke up today in the morning, the weather outside was very bad. The wind was blowing so strong. It was raining so hard and you can also hear the the thunder and the lightning. We were having thunderstorms today. Some minutes later, the power was gone. It was a total black-out. It just happened that my husband already plugged his coffee machine and it was already done before the total black-out. I usually don't drink coffee but this time I have no choice. I always drink green tea in the morning with 2 slices of toasted bread with butter. That's all my breakfast.

What you can do when there is no electricity?? well I guess nothing esp. with machines that work with power. dang!! one bad thing is that, I can't access my internet and telephone either..can't wash in the washing machine, can't cook, can't watch TV, can't hear the radio ...totally nothing !!

What I did after breakfast was watch my photo albums and scrapbooks and arrange some importa…

Is fruit good or bad for fat loss?

There's no debate that fruit is good for you with the large amounts of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes. However, there does seem to be a debate out there about whether
fruit is good or bad for fat loss.

Some people claim that fruit is mostly sugar, so it will spike your blood sugar and insulin levels and prevent fat loss. I disagree.

I do agree that fruit juices and processed canned fruit are NOT good choices and CAN hamper your fat loss. However, whole fresh fruit is an entirely different story.

Yes, fruit is mostly made up of sugar (natural fructose and other sugars). However, whole fresh fruit also contains a good dose of fiber to keep the digestion of those sugars at a moderate pace and control blood sugar. A typical orange, apple, pear, or peach typically contains 3-5 grams of fiber depending on the size.

In addition, the sugars in whole fresh fruit typically have much lower glycemic responses than processed sugars or refined starches in white breads and cereals.

I Can Cook...

I can cook!!!...well, I believed that is true because cooking is one of my favorite..in short I love cooking...do you understand that??? Aside from a lot of things I usually do, cooking is my passion..I have a lot of cookbooks, but I really don't follow how it is written there. I follow my own instinct in cooking...My sense of taste and smell can determine if the food I cook taste good or not...but most of the food I cook really taste good!!! won't you believe that???I'm not telling you that I'm conceited..I'm just telling you the truth..

I cook all the time Filipino food and now some German ones.. I love adobo, menudo, apritada, pancit, nilaga and some more Filipino cuisines of course.. My husband eat most of the food I cook. It's not really a problem for him to eat Filipino food besides that he really like it...or maybe my husband is just not choosy.. Unlike other Filipinas (who are also married to foreigners) who need to cook another menu because their husba…

Christmas Dinner

Christmas dinner at Martin's house

Yesterday, we spent the evening with the Martin family. Lily's husband prepared an American Christmas dinner with ham, breast turkey, stuffing, some roll bread etc. As usual, the kulit Jasmine is there. She always wanted to get people's attention. Lily gave us some Christmas presents. Thanks a lot Lily and family. We also gave them some. As Jasmine was opening her gift, she expected to have some toys. Since I knew that she already have a mountain of toys, I gave her a pair of clothes. Being not contented with her gift, she also opened the gifts of Lily and James.

That was a very nice evening having dinner with them. As usual, I am not in diet, so I ate a lot. Until later, I felt bad again because I had a migraine attack. Instead of staying there longer, me and my husband decided to go home earlier.

Special thanks to…
