AvocaGurt for Breakfast

The very AvocaGurt I ate!
Avocagurt for breakfast, now that's something different! A real Choy’s Cut. As you have guessed, it's plump avocado scoops mixed with milk yogurt. But not just any yogurt. Try it with yogurt made from carabao's milk. It's naturally sweet, so no need to sweeten. But if you insist, then do so with wild honey.

So, yesterday I decided to have the creamy fruit delicacy for breakfast--a bowlful of it--and felt how it rejuvenated my energy. Wow! Just imagine all that omega-3 fatty acid, Vitamins A, C, D, E, K, B Vitamins, plus folate and potassium. That's not to mention the rich fibers for good digestion. And then the protein and calcium in carabao's milk yogurt and its reported anti-cancer properties.

And then last year came to mind..

Last year was when I was so absorbed in the bowlful of Avocado with milk I was devouring for breakfast when midway finishing it, I remembered I was lactose intolerant. Well, I finished off the remaining avocado pieces and slurped the remaining milk, though back in my mind I was beginning to worry what lactose intolerance could do to me.

Well, so far, I didn't feel anything, so I thought I had escaped trouble. God's mercy, for sure! So I left for the office and guess what happened while I was busy doing my work? You guessed it again! There was turbulence, a revolution of some kind. And it was urgent. It wanted to overthrow something like despotism on the inside of me. I had to check if the office toilet was available.

 "I told you Avocado with milk was powerful," myself was nagging me. Well, to add to the complication, there was no water in the faucet and the toilet looked very user-unfriendly. That's not to mention the small water transferring container, or tabo in the vernacular, had a big hole so that it could not hold water for long. What's happening here? my mind shouted. Is this some kind of a joke? Well, it isn't funny! Later, as the revolution was being pacified I vowed to myself never to use milk for Avocado again. Never! I researched and found out then that milk yogurt was better.

The ordeal made me too careful about Avocado shakes and anything mixed with milk from then on. So, yesterday, while enjoying the powerful AvocaGurt for breakfast, I suddenly stopped and made sure that I was using yogurt, not milk. Well, I was....whiwss! Thank God! God is good, indeed!

In a way, I see Avocado like God's Word. It's powerful if mixed with the right creamer, which in my case was milk yogurt. Use God's Word with the wrong "creamer" or intention and you'd need to run to a spiritual restroom to be relieved of something like despotism..

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
