Is it really the 2nd week of December already?
It flew just like that, huh.
Also, I didn't notice that a month has passed since I started a little lifestyle change.
Let's just say I increased my fruit and vegetable intake to 60%, cut my caloric intake in half, and lost some weight.
Pretty amazing and awfully hard but it can be done.
And if there's someone who's gotta do it, that someone should be me.
One post ago, I mentioned that there will be a few changes in here.
First, I will be featuring a lot of vegetable and fruit dishes now.
There will still be the occasional meat and seafood posts, of course!
Second, I will include nutrition information in every featured recipe.
That way, we'll all know what's going on. Ha.
Third, I will be posting some health and fitness links that I know are worth reading about.
Believe me, the articles that will go in here are only "realistic" ways to be healthy.
Nothing drastic. Nothing that may strain our relationship.
So why is this meat-loving, deep-fried dreamer doing this now?
I'm doing this because I've had too much and it has taken its toll on my holistic health.
And I guess if I don't act soon, I'm afraid I'll be too sick to take care of my parents when they're aging.
Or maybe I won't be around anymore.
Here's to my journey! And if you want to, come tag along.
Let's drink to this!
Sweet Mango Lassi
You will need:
1 medium ripe mango, peeled, cored and scraped
1 small container (125g) plain yogurt
1/4 cup evaporated milk, preferably frozen
1/4 cup cold water
1. Mix all ingredients in a blender. If you can, freeze your evaporated milk beforehand so it will serve as the "ice" in the blended lassi.
2. Serve in glass and drink cold! :)
Yield: 1 serving
Sugars: 41g (85% is from the fruit)
Calcium: 500mg (half of what you need in a day!)
Till the next eats!
