Finally, I decided to make something good for the body and skin.
Every morning just take a slice of the lemon and soak in water. Drink the water. πŸ˜€
What is it good for??
It is good for the skin, cleanse your intestine, prevent / lighten black spots on your face, strengthen immune system and good for your throat!!

Lemon is high inΒ antioxidant.
It helps t
o promote skin metabolism, anti-aging and anti pigmentation etc.

Honey contains natural minerals and vitamins which help the metabolizing of undesirable cholesterol and fatty acid on the organs and tissues into the system, hence preventing obesity and promoting better health for us.
Honey has a healthy Glycemic Index (GI), meaning that its sugars can be gradually absorbed into the bloodstream to result in better digestion.

Ingredients:
Honey, lemon, glass bottle/ container

How to make:
1. Slice fresh lemon
2. Put all the lemon slices into the glass container
3. Pour in the honey till all lemon slices are soaked in the honey.
4. Put in the fridge. DONE!

Tips:

And of course it calories are not low.
Oops.. Whatever..because I am going back to my fitness routine..
I had went jogging for the past 3 days ! yeah!! **applause**

Ever since I gave birth to my 1st child, I seldom exercise.
After jogging on the 1st day, I felt my heart was trying to pump really hard to breath..
It felt like there was a layer of fat clinging on to it.. I felt weird and tired and unhealthy. :/
On the 3rd day, after the jog, I felt much better.
Especially my heart. It is pumping more strongly and steadily πŸ™‚
Although I want to look slim and pretty BUT I feel that a healthy heart is the most important.
I will try to keep my jogging routine everyday to maintain a healthy pumping heart.
I do not want to have that feeling of heart pumping with the feel of fat clinging on to it.
It feels kinda weird. I don’t like. :/

Sweet Potatoes

I decided to have green apples and prunes added with sprinkle of sweet sour plum powder as lunch.
But as I was walking around the supermarket, I saw little sweet potatoes with purple skin.
Thus I decided to get them too.
Below is the mixture of 2 small green apples, 3 prunes, 2 sweet potatoes and a dash of sweet sour plum powder.
(picture don’t look appetizing.. I know :p)

I did not know I got 2 different color flesh potato.
1 is yellow another is purple.
To me, purple skin potato are the sweetest with yellow flesh.
They taste so good!
Purple flesh also taste sweet. They cooked pretty fast .
But I prefer the yellow flesh.

image
Finished.. but left with green apples on the plate.
The green apples are too sour! :/
I don’t like it. :p

New salad :-)

I was inspired by my friend, Kerene, she prepared a fruit salad top with nuts with yoghurt dressing. And it look so healthy and appetizing!

Thus, I prepared for myself about the same. As shown below.

I used 2 medium size red apples (without skin), 4 butterhead leaves and 5 tiny cherry tomatoes.
As my body don’t really like nuts thus I omit it. Dressing – mixed Berries yoghurt from Meiji.

image

How does it taste?
Not bad! I quite like it. more sweetness though maybe because I used red apples. Should try green apples next time. With the cherry tomatoes they add abit of sour in it. Butterhead don’t really go well with the yoghurt. maybe other lettuce will be better. Will try it next time.

Calories (I got the calories here)
2 medium red apples (no skin) = 122 Cal
Meiji yoghurt = 129 cal
Butter head 4 leaves = ~8 Cal
5 cherry tomatoes = ~15 Cal
Total = 275 Cal
That’s so little!
A great meal that is filling! Great!
Will trial more soon . πŸ™‚

My favourite from coffee bean..
Although the cake don’t taste that fantastic, the ice blended mocha taste ok; quite good only….. Still I love to buy from them.

Coffee bean brings back many nice memories I had in the past. Those past will never ever exist anymore. But memories stay…:-)

Of course these 2 contain super high calories… πŸ˜›
