(1) When Cooking Rice, Add In Some Pandan Leaves & Herbs To Make Your Rice Healthier; (2) How To Cook White & Brown Rice Together

Pandan leaves & Centella Asiatica herb added when cooking rice

Hi there, dear friends :D

I usually cook my rice plain to go with one soup, two meat and one veggie dishes for a meal. The only time when my rice got all jazzed up was when I cooked Nasi Lemak, i.e. rice that is cooked in coconut milk and with aromatics like pandan leaves, lemon grass, shallots and ginger thrown in and some salt added.

I was first introduced to the method of adding herbs for cooking together with rice when Master atan said the healthy benefits of herbs can be infused into the rice and the whole family will be eating healthier rice, compared to just plain, white rice.

To Improve Our Body’s Absorption Of Nutrients From Our Foods, Vitamins & Health Supplements – Do An Intestinal Parasitic & Deworming Cleanse Regularly…Get Your High Energy Back!

 A Healthy, Nutritious Homemade Dinner For Me and My Daughter – Salmon & Chicken Sukiyaki With Lots Of Vegetables 

 

Hi there, dear friends :D 

I stopped taking all my vitamins, health supplements and herbal teas about six weeks ago to test out the effects of Diatomaceous Earth (DE), and  I wrote about my findings on DE here :-

Nature’s Incredible Food Grade Amorphous Diatomaceous Earth That Is Good For Almost Anything!

 

My daily health supplements consisting of CoEnzymeQ10, Gingko Biloba, Multivitamins, Omega-3 Fish Oil

  

Two weeks ago, I resumed taking my health supplements and I noticed that I got even better results from them! I also need not take them daily but instead, I take them on every 2 to 3 days. Before taking DE, I was on health supplements every day. 

After being on DE, I find that I can’t take my health supplements two days in a row because I would end up with so much energy that I couldn’t sleep at night, and the strange thing was, I still have lots of energy and alertness the following day! 

Hmmmm….why is that so?

Happyhomemaker88′s Homemade Granola Bar Recipe – Loaded With Lots Of Healthy & Yummy Goodness!

My very first homemade Granola Bar

My very first homemade healthy Granola Bar

Hi there, dear friends :D 

My eldest daughter and I love eating Granola Bars, but those that are store-bought are often laden with  too much sugar and they also cost a bomb for just a few bars in a box. Also, most of them are lacking in the type of nutritious ingredients that we want.

So, for the past few weeks, I have been looking up  Granola Bar recipes, but I couldn’t really find one that I liked…and so,  I came up with my own recipe instead and my Granola Bars were very delicious! I love it that they were made with a lot of high fibre ingredients and sweetened naturally by the dried fruits and a little wild honey….yummm!

Ladies! 2 Effortless Anti-Aging Techniques! Do Lajin & Take DE For Easy Shaping Up & Slimming Of Your Body – Also Good For Droopy Breasts & Saggy Tummy

A  super easy, relaxing Lajin pose for slimming and shaping your body -  The Horizontal Position

A super easy, relaxing Lajin pose for slimming and shaping your body – The Horizontal Position – which can be done on a firm bed, or on the floor

 

Hi there, dear ladies! 

Although I had intended this post to be for ladies –  gentlemen, you can also follow these two techniques to lose weight and firm up your body easily! 

Doing Lajin and taking DE are the two easiest and most effortless combination techniques that I have tested and found to be really effective in getting a better-shaped body and in losing those stubborn love handles and fat.

All achievable  without having to go on a reduced-calories or starvation diets, without going for  intensive cardio workouts….plus, you get fast results, too! All you need to do for the exercise part is just to LIE DOWN for a few minutes!

Sounds easy??

Right!! 

After having had 4 children and just passed middle age when most parts of the body go “South,” I can attest to the weight loss efficacy of Lajin and DE, because my clothes have gone down  from a UK size 12 to a size 10 (USA size 10 to  size 8.) I did Lajin for about 2 months starting in August 2014 and then I stopped Lajin when I tested out DE for a month beginning 29 September.

The Morning After……

Hi there, dear friends :D

I am so glad to report that the morning after I had a field day of ecstatically happy emotions, I woke up early this morning  still filled with happy feelings and the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams was playing continuously in my head! LOL! 

Yesterday, I wrote about Wow, I am deliriously happy now and feel like a superwoman – serotonin boost after taking DE?” and because “happiness” is such an elusive emotion for some of us, I had wondered if my “happiness” tank was going to fizzle out by today. 

Phew, it didn’t! As I am typing this, I am bobbing my head and tapping my feet to the song above – very contented that I didn’t suffer a crash of emotions  and I am still happy today, albeit at a more mellow level, but nonetheless, still preciously good for me.

Although they say that happiness is a state of the mind, I would like to believe that my body is able to now efficiently synthesize serotonin and I have a more stable source of serotonin to “happify” my moods. 

Now, it is past noon already and I am soooo glad that Pharrell is still singing “Happy” in my head! Right, I am off to carry out more decluttering in my kitchen! LOL! 

With best wishes,

choesf :D 

P.S. Hey, I feel like one of those “Jaegers” in the “Pacific Rim” movie and I had beaten the “Kaiju” monster of Crankiness & Irritability…hence, another of my favourite music is also playing in my head!

Wow, I Am Deliriously Happy Now & Feel Like A Superwoman – Serotonin Boost After Taking DE ?

(If music is not playing, click on mute button) 

Hi there, dear friends :D

I can’t believe what I am feeling right now – I am so deliriously happy that I am literally singing in my heart!! This is coming from a 52-yearl old woman who feels like 32-year old now! Perhaps, this is how it feels like being a “spring chicken” and what they say about regaining the “fountain of youth” again? LOL!

I am trying to catch this moment and backtrack my way to see if I can capture the right “formula” to get a rush of happiness by writing about it here before I lose the happy moment, so just that I can get this mood again in future.

Some background first of all ===> almost 4 weeks ago, I started taking Diatomaceous Earth (DE in short and I wrote about it HERE a few days ago) , which have many health benefits, among which are feelings of good mood and increased energy. Today, I experienced a boundless supply of both! Yippee!
