My health food

I am quite a health conscious person, because I want to help my kids babysitting my grand kids when I have retired in future. I take good care of my diet, I exercise regularly, I take supplements and I lead a healthy lifestyle. I really hope all these help, and I pray. 

I bought a pack of 5 grain cereal mix from an organic shop. I soaked it for a few hours. I also added in  white fungus, lotus seeds, ginkgo biloba, wolf berries, and red dates to make it up to 10 ingredients. I  put in a piece of rock sugar for better taste, and boiled everything with 4 cups of water in slow cooker over night.
Next morning, I brought a big pot to office. I could eat this as breakfast, and keep the left over in fridge for lunch.
It was like eating porridge when warm, and it was like eating sweet dessert when chill. I do not know whether you can accept this type of health food. I can.

    5. Reduce your air-cond consumption and increase slow cooker's. Moreover, air-cond drys up our skin, no good for fui-fui's complexion. Eat more healthy food and your skin will be radiant~

  14. You pray some more! Sure God will bless you to live till 100years old. Well you know that sometimes we need to pray and do charity to make merits and clear karma... I am sure you will be strong and robust till old age.
