Superfood 101: Avocados

Okay. I have to admit. Even though I graduated and work in the health industry, I don’t always have the healthiest lifestyle choices when it comes to snacking. I’m sure most of you can relate! Give me a bag of chips or popcorn and I’ll be happy as a clam. I’ll be occasionally writing about “superfoods” that are great alternatives to snacking and even greater for health benefits. Today’s topic will be about a little green giant: the avocado.

Haul Diaries: Sunday Night Makeup Haul =D

Hi girls (and guys)! It’s haul time!

Took a trip to the drugstore and of course had to pick up on some popular items.

After the drugstore stop we pigged out at Costco (their Chicken Bake is to DIE for! and so cheap!). It was a marvelous time.

It’s my first time doing a haul post so I’m not sure of the format on how to do these. Patient is a virtue, my young padawans. 🙂

Onto the haul! Excuse the non flash for the second picture – wanted the product to be as true-to-colour as possible. Still turned out a little dark though.

Usually though, it’s only the popular girls who gets them and those ones who are obviously an item. I remember always hoping that I’d get one but I never did.

1. What is your favorite Valentines Day treat?
I grew up eating candy conversation hearts as a child, and I’d always get a kick out of the funny sayings they had on them. Sometimes I even wished the boy that I liked in elementary school gave me the one that said, “Be Mine”. But we all know that never happened, haha.

2. Sweethearts or chocolate covered strawberries?
Sweetheart 🙂 I can always eat chocolate covered strawberries any day XD
