With the cookbook in hand, I know that I can taste the sweet, aromatic and intense flavors of fresh ingredients every day without spending a lot over expensive recipes.

If you are not fond of eating Avocado a.k.a alligator pears then you must start liking them because it carries a number of health benefits you wouldn’t expect from a fruit. This fruits contains high calories that are probably the reason why people on diet would not want to eat this. But do you know that it is high in fiber that makes it good in burning fats.

Yogurt goodness!

Yogurt has been popular in the food market because it carries plenty of benefits. And just what can we get from yogurt? Is it Health-wise, food-wise or skin-wise?

Yogurt is dairy product; it contains milk which has protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, Vitamin B6 and B12. Plus it contains “probiotics”; these are the good bacteria present in our digestive system. These bacteria keep the colon healthy, it helps fight disease and strengthen our immune system.

Yogurt can also be good for your skin. Recently it has become an ingredient for skin care, why? Because it can be used as a moisturizer, it has an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal property to fight against pimples, and it can also be used as an anti-aging cream.

Kimchi, a healthy traditional food

I went to a nearby Korean restaurant to try some of their other delicacies aside from kimchi but it turns out that most of the dish in their menu has kimchi as one their main ingredient. Koreans eat kimchi every day. A meal won’t be complete if there’s no kimchi available on the table. What’s with kimchi anyway? I love kimchi, I like it best when I’m eating grilled pork. The spiciness and its sourness really blend in with the grilled pork and I can’t help but scoop another ladle of rice! So it’s me pigging out again!

Eating kimchi is part of Korea’s culture and tradition, and this staple has become known in the world not just of its taste but also with its health benefits. Kimchi is stuffed with probiotics. It has lactobacilli bacteria that are good for our digestive system. It is also rich in fiber which is good for our colon. It has Vitamin A, B and C. In addition to that, because kimchi is loaded with peppers and garlic it is also rich in selenium that helps lowers blood cholesterol and aids our skin. And because cabbage mostly contain water and fewer calories it is also good for those who want to lose a few pounds. Seriously this is one hell of a super food!
