Welcome Baby Ynnah Louis Valencia Antoni

Hubby and I was married 2009, almost 3yrs already, and wishing God will give as a baby, but for now, while we’re still waiting my sister in law gave birth to a healthy baby girl yesterday May 22, 2012.The whole family was so excited that we all file for a leave just to go San Jose and welcome the new member of the Valencia family. She’s 6.2lbs with gorgeous hair already and cute nails, lol! Look she was swarmed with our love already. So tiny and fragile I was afraid to hold her.  Even her tatay (father) did not dare to hold her.

Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

When I learn about this vegan thing, I adopt, practice and research the whole thing about it. I did not take any synthetic medicine as I rely Mother Nature to all my pains and illness. I want my family to practice this (they’re not vegan anyway) somehow. My mom has this condition way back when I’m still at high school. Chronic Bronchitis, that’s the findings of her Doctor. Being a second hand smoker? No wonder.
Symptoms include:
• Worsening cough that produces yellow or green mucous
• Shortness of breath
• Chest tightness or pain
• Increased tiredness or fatigue
• Swelling of legs, ankles or feet
She has all these symptoms, minus the swelling of legs. The fact that she also has asthma,it worsens the scenario.Her doctor prescribe so many medicines, for her phlegm, anti biotic etc.. But all these meds only gives a short effect. Until I read about Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. I know it will not cure all the illnesses of my mom, but I know and I believe that somehow (in due time) it will ease all her pains and sufferings.
I went to Healthy Options (Festival Mall, Alabang) and got this bottle of ACV and instruct to my mom how to take it and when to take it. Here’s the link for the product info

• Rich in enzymes & potassium
• Support a healthy immune system
• Helps control weight
• Promotes digestion & ph Balance
• Helps soothe dry throats
• Helps remove body sludge toxins
• Helps maintain healthy skin
• Helps promote youthful, healthy bodies
• Soothes irritated skin
• Relieves muscle pain from exercise
How to take it: 1 – 2 tsp. of ACV dilute to 1glass of water. 3 times daily, upon arising,mid morning and mid afternoon. You may add honey as sweetener.
For me, there’s no harm in trying, it is organic anyway so no need to worry for the side effects.
All I need is Prayer (a lot of it) and dedication in order to help my Moms condition.
HAPPY Vday! xoxoxo

vegan lunch

Looking for easy,ready to go lunch? Well consider this one. Lunch consist of sweet potatoes (my fave), pineapple and vegetable version of California maki.
I steamed the sweet potato a night before, peeled and put it in a ref. The pineapple which already peeled, I sliced it this morning and put in my lunch box.
For veg. maki, slice the vegetable (julienne cut), carrots, cabbage, cucumber and red bell pepper.
Just like your ordinary California maki roll the maki and slice with wet knife.
Happy V-day! (vegan) ^^

Sautéed sprout beans with chayote

Nothing fancy about this recipe. When laziness strikes, I opt for this recipe. All you have to do is to sauté sprout beans and chayote to onion and garlic put a little water, add a dash of pepper and soy sauce.
