An easier and more enjoyable way to eat oatmeal

An easier and more enjoyable way to eat oatmeal

This smoothie has been my breakfast for the last few days and I like it!
Frozen strawberries + Frozen blueberries + a teaspoon of raw honey + half a cup of quick oats + A cup of milk + two spoons of plain yogurt. I cook oatmeal and milk in microwave for 90 seconds first and then make a smoothie in blender with all those ingredients, and I top it with bananas and apricots!! An easier and more enjoyable way to eat oatmeal! YUM!

ps. This was my mom's idea!! hehe!

Clean eating . One step at a time

No more cookies and candy bars

Nuts and dried fruits

It's been a few months that I quit eating cookies and candies
and replaced them with healthier snacks like dried fruits and nuts.
I actually don't crave those unhealthy snacks anymore.
Those yummy red berries are called Goji Berries.
 They are native to China.

Growing my herbs

Living in a condo apartment doesn't mean that you can't grow your herbs!
Although I only have two in my collection :o)
How about you? Do you grow herbs in your apartment or backyard?
