I bought this pack of Super organic instant soy milk powder from Sri Kota the other day. These day, Baby drinks more soy milk than cow’s milk. She also prefers soy milk to cow’s milk. I wonder which has more nutrients and ‘safer’ to drink. […]

Many of my friends and customers thought initially that my online store only carries clothing for skinny ladies until I informed them that larger size as well as big and tall clothing are also available. These larger size clothing sell pretty well and I intend to get more plus size clothing for my online store soon. Before you purchase an item from my online store, be sure to check the measurements provided in my website against your own vital statistics to prevent buying ill-fitting clothes.
It was a sheer coincidence that we had everything purple for the entire day. First we had reddish/purplish dragon fruits for breakfast. Then, we had purple sweet potato as dessert after lunch. For dinner, we had stir-fried organic purple cabbage. And my girls watched Barney the purple dinosaur too!
The Many Benefits Of Eating Purple Food:
Purple foods prevent premature aging
Purple foods are colored by a pigment called anthocyanin, a strong and protective antioxidant which can help reduce the risk of cancer, help improve memory and assist with healthy aging.
Purple foods protect your heart
Purple fruits and vegetables are also packed with flavonoids – known to be one of the most powerful phytochemicals. Flavonoids are heart-healthy, beneficial to the cardiovascular system and can lower your risk of heart disease.

Purple vegetables: Some purple vegetables include eggplant, purple cabbage, purple peppers, purple potatoes and purple onions.
Purple fruits: Purple fruits include grapes, plums, figs, raisins, prunes and blackberries.
Purple plants: Even purple-colored herbs – like lavender and purple basil – provide powerful nutritional benefits.

Lavender essential oil also has both antifungal and antiseptic properties.

Baby seems to tolerate soy bean milk better than cow’s milk. These days, I have stopped feeding her with Pediasure. First, Pediasure is for picky eaters / kids who do not eat well / underweight kids. Now, Baby eats everything and is gaining weight. Second, Pediasure is getting more and more expensive. I have since switched her to soy bean milk and Dutch Lady 123. She drinks more soy bean milk than cow’s milk though. I find that she has a tendency to throw up or have the urge to throw up if she drinks cow’s milk. I always dilute the milk so that it is not so thick, not so sweet and more palatable.
Of all the brands of instant soy milk powder, I find that the sugar-free and organic ones from Unisoy (made in Singapore) the most palatable. The powder is also easy to dissolve as the soy beans are de-skinned. Baby likes this brand too and has no problem drinking this. Unisoy is available at Jusco and certain mini marts.
Many people are amazed that despite having a hubby who is a food caterer (which naturally suggests that I am surrounded by lots of good food all the time), I can still stay slim. I love food very much too and I often succumb to […]
