The Oatmeal Diet

Today marks the start of my 7-day oatmeal diet. I dropped by the grocery yesterday to buy skim milk, muscovado sugar, and a big pack of the glorious rolled oats. Boring, yes I know. I intentionally prepared it simple for my first day and, heck no! I won’t last for 7 days eating just this. I’m gonna make a trip to the grocery again this afternoon, after my gym time, to complete my line up of toppings: apple, banana, cinnamon, berries, walnuts, and almonds. These should make me feel that I won't be deprived of good food for the whole week… in variety, but mixed in moderation of course.

Oatmeal is considered as a health food and is proven to reduce cholesterol levels, promote weight loss, and lower the risk of cancer. I personally prefer rolled oats over quick oats or those sold as instant oats. Rolled oats are more chewy. Texture is good plus it’s all natural. Instant oats are already mixed with different varieties of sugar so if you’re aiming for weight loss, stay away from it.

Nuff said, now here’s my breakfast... so help me God.

 Jamba Juice, I beg you, please open a branch in Makati or Ortigas...

Theo & Philo: Dark Chocolate with Siling Labuyo

On chocolate preference, I say bitter is better. Either plain, with nuts, or with mint --- dark chocolates are my favorite! I went to a milk tea store in Ortigas last week and when I was about to pay for my wintermelon tea, I noticed some goodies at the counter. Dark Chocolates, yay!

From afar, I thought they were selling a not-so-popular imported brand of chocolate until I went closer and found this...

"Theo and Philo's Dark Chocolate with Siling Labuyo"


They're selling it at Php 95.00 per bar. Quite pricey, but it has the magic words in it: "dark chocolate". 
So I bought one. :)
