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..

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.

Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
