Pineapple yogurt smoothie

I seldom take milk. The only time I bought milk powder, it was when I was pregnant. I hate the smell of milk powder. Once in while, I would buy myself the Merigold HL milk or other brands fresh milk. I only took milk which is cold.

Besides, I don't really like cheese. So, where should I get the calcium for my teeth and my bone.
Thank goodness that there is another good source of calcium which I can turn to. I love yogurt, my kids too love yogurt. Mixing plain yogurt with fruit in blender, I can make a glass of healthy smoothies which is high in calcium and vitamins.
Plain yogurt (3 big spoon) + water (half cup) + a piece of pineapple

Sunday morning, I made myself pineapple yogurt smoothie as breakfast, before heading to the gym.

1. Yogurt is easier to digest than milk. 
2. Yogurt contributes to colon health.  
3. Yogurt improves the bioavailability of other nutrients.  
4. Yogurt can boost immunity.   
5. Yogurt aids healing after intestinal infections.
6. Yogurt can decrease yeast infections.
7. Yogurt is a rich source of calcium.
8. Yogurt is an excellent source of protein. 
9. Yogurt can lower cholesterol. 
10. Yogurt is a "grow food."

  6. I love making smoothies for my kids too. I usually freeze banana and strawberries and use them for our smoothies - it turns out thick like ice cream. Way better than giving them ice cream! :)

  15. I love all dairy products and consume milk daily. But like Chloe's mummy, I have concern about the health issue on too much of dairy products.

  16. Never like yoghurt until my daughter playfully feed me bit by bit and got 'hooked' to it. Learned how to eat yoghurt mixed with fruits while in India and has been my favorite ever since. Yummy!

  21. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    Boycott American Women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False DV charges (same as above)

    3. Financial RAPE of men in divorce courts

    4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden contact

    5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That’s right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!
