Grilled Broccoli

Do you want to munch on something healthy? Try this grilled broccoli. My little girl loves broccoli and I think she loves this the best. I just put no-salt seasoning and drizzled with olive oil. It smells good and so tasty even without salt. Broccoli is a good source of protein and fiber. A very good and healthy substitute for chips and other snacks. Enjoy!

Birthday Food

It's my son's birthday and Mommy was busy preparing for the party. It was a small gathering among family members. It was just a family affair so I just prepared something quick and healthy meal. Though the appetizer was greasy, the rest was healthy food. I had the kids' favorite caramelized sausage and bacon on stick. Hubby bought a vege pizza and I cooked 100% whole wheat ,pasta with chicken. The green salad has poppy seed dressing, dried cranberries and a bit of bacon crumbs which was really good. Kids had fun and the family has a nice gathering. Happy birthday again to my little Monkey!

Garden Salad with Apple and Chicken Meat

Since I was told that I have hypoglycemia, I have been eating healthy. This is one of the healthy meals that I eat most of the days. Our fridge would never run out of greens and I always have meat, chicken preferably. I like Costco's roasted chicken. I only eat a bit of it. I also like Albertson's chicken but I usually bake my own without salt on it. For my green salad, I love Balsamic dressing and pumpkin seeds and fruits on top. I love how the salad tastes. Apples make it taste so good since I like sweet and tangy. Hope I'll be able to stick with this kind of diet. I am loving it but I get tempted sometimes. I just have to think that this is for my own benefit. It's good and healthy!
