Seriously I hate hoarding bunch of stuff (unused appliance/kitchen ware, empty cardboard boxes, unfit/out of style clothing etc) and I try to donate them as much a possible….speaking of which I need to streamline my garage as well….*sigh*
K, on the other hand is quite opposite. He’s just like typical Asians who likes to hold on to things, whether you use it or not. I think he slowly gets better at it..
Anyway, recently I heard lots of people at work are sick! Every cubicle I walk through I’ll hear someone sneezes, snorting, clearing up throat, sniffing, and coughing. Ugh..not to mention one or two people who share the same office room with me do that too.
Typically I always wash my hands very often every time I touch the door knobs or anything that’s not my own space. I don’t like using hand sanitizer as much because I read a lot about not so good things using it too often. Our body has some good bacteria and excessive use of hand sanitizer will kill them too. Not to mention the bad bacteria will grow immune to it if you use it too often.
But I’d lie if I don’t have a bottle of it in my purse. In a pinch I do use it but if I have access to actual sink, I rather wash my hands with warm water and soap.
After washing my hands, I usually use a paper towel to touch door knobs etc until I get to my desk.
Too paranoid? Maybe. But I don’t wanna get sick either!
Morning workout was a complete brutal and I was sweating like a pig! You can go here if you’re interested what I did this morning
I wanna try Chobani and Oikos but the Albertson’s I went to didn’t carry plain Chobani and no Oikos.
I missed Almond milk and had no time making it myself and I’m running low on almonds.
Finally I made my first green monster, after drooling looking at Lele’s!
Good post workout recovery drink!
Ingredients are super simple: 1 banana, handful of baby spinach, and some Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk. Paired up with 1/2 avocado, sliced chicken breasts, spinach and some lemon juice = healthy and balanced breakfast!
Got home and my iHerb order has arrived!!
Finally I could ditch that yucky canola oil forever and start using coconut oil for healthier cooking!
I miss soy sauce and these (tamari and coconut amino) should compensate it
Btw that CocoCardio was a free sample that came with my order. Looks like it’s some kind of natural drink powder.
What do you do to avoid catching a cold?
Aside from what I described above, I also make sure to get myself enough of rest, eat whole foods, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.
Do you use hand sanitizer?
Do you prefer plain yogurt or flavored?
Plain for me, no thanks for flavored. I could always flavor my yogurt with fresh fruits!
Have you ordered from iHerb before?
This was my first time and they carry pretty good stuff from herbs, groceries and hard to find items. Their price are decent though their nuts are still expensive IMHO. I’ve seen my local grocery store sell almonds much cheaper than them ($2.99/lbs for raw almonds anyone?). Shipping is free if you ordered more than $40. Also if you’re a first time customer, you can use Averie’s code AVE630 to save $5.00. I used that. (Thanks Averie!)
