Bananaque or Banana-Q is one of my kids’ favorite afternoon snacks. This is easy to cook. You have to deep fry saging na saba and coat it with brown sugar until the color turns into golden brown.

Health benefits of watermelon

Hubby loves to eat watermelon. In fact, he’s already addicted to it. šŸ˜€ He started the healthy habit after he discovered the health benefits of watermelon. The potassium content of melons helps control blood pressure and probably prevents strokes. Watermelon is also rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, and lycopene which are known to prevent heart disease, prostate, breast and endometrial cancers, lung and colon cancer.

Both of us prefer the yellow watermelon over the red one. While the red watermelon looks luscious, the yellow one tastes sweeter. But no matter what color or cut you prepare them, be it the size of motorola batteries, watermelon will stay healthy and delicious. We both love to eat chilled watermelon for dessert and snack. šŸ™‚

Food keepers for school and work

There are cute food keepers that Iā€™m contemplating to buy for the kids. The food containers that they are using are still functional, but I want a food keeper that can hold soup or food with sauce. Attractive food keeper can also enhance the eating habit of picky eaters.

Here are some pictures of cute food keepers I saw online. I guess these are also perfect as gift items for kids and those who are already working. How about giving customized food keepers with birth announcements? Do you think they will make a good gift tandem?
