Ok… I got introduced Almonds addiction by a friend of mine who was trying to lose a few pounds and needed something healthy to snack on. I took the first handful and from then on couldn’t stop!! or like my aunt who also got addicted to it would say,’it’s chop one chop two’ (with a nigerian pidgin accent btw)hahahaha… I also tried to get addicted to Pistachios but it kinda got contained cos twas a lil’ bit pricier than Almonds, but boy!!! do they taste good especially the ones that have got a bit of salt and pepper in them…hmmmm yum yum!!

We would be looking at the benefits of these nuts in this Posts…I hope you get addicted as I did…Just kidding but really tho’ they are a perfect alternative to ‘junk’,especially in the middle of the night when you start getting hunger signals from your belly. A fun way of eating them is as desert- puddings or in FroYo (frozen yoghurt) or muffins…delish!! Oh and I heard Almond milk is healthy too.

Moving on. Continue reading “Nuts About Hair!!!”

Fruits, Vegs et Toi? (III)

They say – knowledge is power; nothing read or known is a waste. Anyhoos… I’ve tried to read extensively on most fruits and vegs I consume, I think it’s important so I know when we’re eating healthy and know some diseases could be prevented just by what I eat! What do you think?

In this Post we’ll be looking at Sweet Potatoes and Apples…Enjoy!! Continue reading “Fruits, Vegs et Toi? (III)”
