Crissy’s Yogurt

Back in the day, I didn’t like the sour taste of yogurt so I preferred the flavored yogurts in the supermarket.  I just eat it because I know it’s  beneficial for my body until my taste buds got used to it and until it made me forget about ice cream. 😉  (Still, I plan to buy an ice cream maker and make low fat, home made,  fruity ice cream in the future.)

Why do I love yogurt? First, it’s one way I can get Calcium, and good bacteria for my healthy tummy. Second, yogurt is said to aid in weight loss. And third, it’s some thing that my taste buds doesn’t stop craving for.

I don’t know how to make a home made yogurt although my Mama said it’s so easy.  Maybe I should ask her soon or Google it.  I love yogurt and cultured milk (Yakult).  In the grocery, I usually buy the plain yogurt because we don’t have greek yogurt here.  Also, I wanted to make a greek yogurt but I’m lazy to do it overnight. 😉  Of all the yogurts in the market, I liked the Yoplait brand especially the one with real strawberry in it.  Yummy!

I often put my yogurt in the freezer then dress it with what’s available at home: vanilla flavored granola, triple berry granola, flax seed, nuts and fruits.  The plain yogurt becomes an exciting yogurt.  I eat it as my dessert.  Also, it saves me money because I don’t need to buy outside because as you know you are paying for the toppings.

What about you,  how do enjoy your yogurt?

In making healthy choices

I went out yesterday.  After reading many websites and blogs in food and nutrition I could not hold back myself to go and buy foods, healthy foods.  It was insane dreaming of cereals the other day hahaha. 🙂  When I shop I make sure that I make healthy choices but there are times my pocket cannot sustain them.  I don’t know why  nutritious foods are way expensive.  I think everyone should be able to afford any food in the market.

It’s unbelievable we turn to fast food than the real food due to money reasons and convenience. Oh I was like that.

Moving on… I went to the supermarket and to Healthy Options and found all of these.

I’m glad that I found a box of vegetable broth cubes in Makati supermarket (cause it’s rare to find one here in a local store)because it is 3-4 times the price in a healthy food store.  Unbelievable! And the purple cabbage was put in a low price this time so I didn’t make any second thoughts about it.

I wish  I could buy an organic peanut or almond butter…but my pocket cannot handle it anymore. 😉  I wish there is a Trader’s Joe here or Healthy Options goes on a midyear sale.  I wish…

Later that afternoon, I grabbed a hot caramel machiatto and answered some practice exams.

I wish I had a cinnamon swirl bread topped with creamy butter and whipped cream that the barista offered me to buy but I glad I didn’t.  So that’s what you call self-control.

Thank God for the blessings yesterday! 🙂
