Every bite I take feels like heaven because of its unexplainable taste of milk, butter and cream. But I am not really sure of those stuff. I just assume it is made of those ingredients.

Mediterranean Diet Fights Heart Disease

Since summer months are just around the corner, people are rushing to fit the best swim wear they could shop for. So, as early as now, many are already trying to get rid of those extra flabs by dieting. And the best diet way, by far, which does not only helps anybody reduce fats, but it also helps fight heart diseases is the Mediterranean diet.

The above image shows what and when to eat those fruits, vegetables and meats. Perhaps one can save much silver coins for this kind of diet.

I am not recommending that we all drink Margarita or wines, or even beer and other hard liquor, but occasional and moderate drinking is not too bad for our health. Isn’t it? Smiley And in conjunction to this event in the US, some foodie stops offer discounted prices on margarita drinks like the Stoney’s every Fridays from 5 to 7 PM while Café Deluxe and Tortilla Coast offer $5 Margaritas all day.

Foods Not to Order on a Romantic Date

Valentine’s Day 2013 has just recently been celebrated but I still can’t get over with looking for food recipes that could make a Valentine’s Day at home even more romantic than celebrating it in a high-class restaurants or the like. But instead of having recipes with me, I ended up giggling while having stumbled upon Foods Not to Order on a Romantic First Date from Reader’s Digest.

1. Spaghetti and Meatballs. Though I don’t eat pasta, I just can’t imagine myself eating spaghetti on a romantic date with my best dress on and accidentally spill some spaghetti sauce in my gorgeous dress. Smiley

2. Bigger burgers than your mouth. Think of it, you are on a date and you eat like you haven’t eaten for how many days just to accommodate the bigger burger in your mouth? Smiley

 3. Spicy Foods. I love spicy foods. I guess, this is just alright but not the spiciest food to serve; maybe just the mild spicy foods for me.

4. Soup. Do you want to hear your date slurping your soup with a sweet sound? Smiley

5. Fast food foods. Reader’s Digest name this food as ‘Dollar Food’ and advised if one prefer to have a date with you in a fast food chains, then order up a bigger size menu. But for me, I don’t prefer fast food foods a good idea for a romantic date especially on Valentine’s Day. I still prefer a date at home or in a more conducive  romantic places or restaurants.

6. Beans. If you didn’t know it yet, beans are good source of polysaccharides that can cause flatulence. If you want your romantic date ending up blowing horns from down there, then order up beans, radish, potatoes, onion, garlic and lentils.

7. Platter of Lobster and Crab. Have you tried eating these mouthwatering dish with a spoon and fork? If yes, then try this out on your next romantic date. Smiley

8. Spinach. This foodie is just one of my favorites to eat AT HOME. Of course, in a romantic date, I don’t think so, but if it’s just at home, no worries for me; else I will end up looking for dental floss or toothpicks.

9. Herb Garlic Bread. I love garlic bread! And I don’t care if this is being served on a romantic date. Do you?
