Healthy Breakfast Juices

Three weeks ago I started drinking juice for breakfast. No more bread, Nestum and Milo which was my usual go to breakfast meal on working days and Chinese hot meal on weekends. For three weeks now, I have juices daily. Yup that’s right – 7 days a week and I don’t find it troublesome to cut up the fruits and veggies and then blend the juice. I need about 10-15mins every morning to prepare the juice and because of that I wake up 10-15mins earlier every day.

Healthy Breakfast Juices
Ingredients I’ve used to date: Banana, green apples, carrot, cucumber, plum, honeydew, watermelon, dragonfruit, strawberry, avocado, orange, celery, tomatoes, mulberry, nuts and chia seeds. Note to self: need to incorporate more veggies.

Henceforth these lazy blueberry tartlets were born!

Snack Attack!

Snacks
My current guilty indulgence.

Actually I bought these because I’m a sucker for cute packaging. I especially love the Lotte Toppo stick (middle pict) because the inside is full of yummy cream. From a blog I read, it says Toppo stick is Lotte’s answer to Glico’s Pocky and also known as reverse Pocky. I’ve tried the chocolate flavor and am looking forward to cafe au lait next.

Choco-pie on the other hand is a totally different story. I heard so much about Choco-Pie from various Korean variety shows and finally chance upon Aeon selling ’em (Orion). I bought another one from Lot 10 (Lotte). Apparently Orion and Lotte are in feud of the Choco-Pie name. So what’s a Choco-Pie? It’s marshmallow sandwiched in between 2 chocolate cakes. Quite yummy and the only thing I hate about it is the amount of chocolate stuck on my teeth surface.

These may be one of my last of the last snack attack before I concentrate on a more healthier lifestyle. Hello to nuts, yogurt, fruits… and the list goes on. But before that let me enjoy these first. 😉

Guinness Dark Chocolate Truffle Cups

I found this unique Guinness chocolate at Jaya Grocer recently. It looks interesting enough for me to get a box. And I almost didn’t because the expiry is a month away. Because of the soon-to-be-expired thingy the chocolate were on offer – RM12.90. I’m not sure how much it cost usually.

Never a fan of Guinness but my late paternal grandpa (ah yeh) was a huge fan.

Baked Porky Popps

So I was at the S.Wine section of Ben’s Independent Grocer the other day and saw this interesting looking junk food which caught my eyes right away:

Baked Porky Popps

It’s called Baked Porky Popps. Basically it’s fried pork rinds (pork chicharron). A packet cost RM7.90 (if I’m not mistaken) which is expensive in my book for this mere size. But because this ‘dog’ is so curious, she decided to get both flavours; classic vinegar and hot and spicy to try out.
