It’s always a pleasure to write for foodie magazine. In the March 2014 issue of foodie, I talk about the history, varieties and the health benefits of tea. I also share some of my favorite tea brands.
I’m always looking for different ways to eat avocados so I can reap the benefits of this nutrient packed fruit. Avocados are loaded with folate, vitamin C, vitamin K and omega-3 fatty acids. The protein content is also pretty high for a fruit but so are the calories. One avocado is around 320 calories. Like every other high calorie food, moderation is key if you’re watching your figure.
Living sustainably is something that I’m trying to achieve not only for the new year but for some time now. It’s a goal of mine to be able to reduce my carbon footprint. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not easy (like losing or gaining weight). It takes quite a bit of planning and you need the motivation to learn how to live green. It’s a huge commitment. As a start, Green Living for Free offers workshops to teach the public how to reduce waste, eat healthfully, and be one with nature. I was one of the lucky few who got to learn how to make soy milk, soy yogurt, veggie patty and a nifty fertilizer tool today. Be sure to “like” them on facebook and join their next event.
