Smoothie #1: Paleo Kale Avocado Banana

I have always been curious about the emerging trend over the internet regarding the Paleo smoothie drinks. I have decided to let my doubts get the best of me and try it instead.

A couple of try-outs didn't go bad, but they weren't my favorites either. But this, ahh...the lemony twist and freshness of flavor, that surprised me and has stayed on my list of things to make early in the day.

I have to say that I am impressed and surprised that when I had a glass of this smoothie every morning, my hunger pangs were gone and I felt full the whole morning.

So here's the recipe, I hope you will enjoy it as I did.


3 cups of baby Kale
2 pcs medium banana
1 med-large avocado
l lemon
honey (optional)
2-3 cups of water


In a blender, pour in kale, banana, avocado and water. Mix until all the ingredients have become thick. Add four tbsp lemon or add more according to your taste, add honey, and blend for 20 secs.

You can add more or less water, depending on how you want your smoothie to be.

Makes 4 servings.

Stir-fried (Create your own!)

That's my fresh from the wok, stir fried mix.

There is a buffet that I frequent  that makes this really good stir-fried goodies. I go there just for that.
As for the ingredients, you can basically add just anything you want in it. Does that sound good to you? My mouth is watering, actually.

This is one of my favorites in preparing zucchini, it is flavorful and a definite low carb. What's best about it? It's so EASY to make! You can eat it as it is, as a snack, a side dish, anything!

Snappy cauliflower and broccoli saute

Snappy cauliflower and broccoli saute

Trying a different saute mix and it came out real good. This is still part of my carb substitute foods.

It was paired with smothered pork chops. That was good!

Pork Roast

Pork Roast
So, being able to stumble upon a great sale day at our local food market here, I just couldn't resist NOT to buy this HUGE pork roast at .89 c/lb, hence, the picture.

I have so many ideas that would go great with the pork roast, but I decided to cook it as simple as that in the picture because I wanted to learn how to cook it perfectly, not overdone.

I am glad I took the risk and went ahead, with just a rub for ingredients, the outcome was awesome! It was juicy, flavorful and tender.

There is a definite encore of this recipe in the future (when all of it is gone).

Ginataang Langka - Jackfruit in Coconut milk

Ginataang Langka - Jack fruit in Coconut milk

March is almost over and I barely cooked anything. Working has taken it's toll on me, and I have been abusing my body with all the frozen prepared foods and eating out. I still am not there, but I am pulling my weight to get back on track. I want to get back on cooking all my meals.

Anyway, I wanted to share one of my favorite foods. We call this, ginataang langka (jack fruit), or jack fruit in coconut milk. I can remember my family gathering around the table, with this at the center, and we have our share of vinegar dips (white vinegar with a dash of salt) and plain rice. The fun and mess we made!

If you like coconut milk, an adventurous palate, I am pretty sure you will enjoy this one.
