I don't really like sodas, chocolates, doughnuts.. basically anything sweet with the exception though to ice cream. But I'm still quite choosy with ice cream flavors. Anyway, Myke on the other hand likes chocolates, sodas, cakes, doughtnuts. (Ugh. Thinking of them makes my teeth ache already.) And confronting him and basically banning him access to the sweets at our pantry usually turns into a debate - with him ending up with the silly grin on his face while wiping chocolate smudges off his chin and me in the sofa seething. Nakakainis makipagtalo sa matigas ang ulo.
I know my MIL (mother-in-law) had been keeping watch of Myke's eating habits. And she always reminds me to be conscious of what I put on the dining table cos Myke sometimes would just be a total binger. She wanted me to prepare more healthy food choices and so, she asked me to come with her to a seminar last Sunday to be more educated on the subject of healthy eating.
The seminar was entitled "Prevention and Reversal of Heart Disease" that was spearheaded by the NeedHealth Ministries. The seminar wasn't too much of a bore. There were lectures on healthy eating choices - benefits of drinking water, eating less animal-sourced products and there was also cooking demo on how to prepare vegetarian dishes. For a fee, you could also enjoy a vegetarian buffet lunch which was composed of red rice, black beans, kidney beans, camote tops and vegetarian tocino. There was also boiled bananas, some green mangoes and singkamas with vegetarian bagoong.
