Of Cinnamon & Vanilla...

...okay, so, when I'm on the roll, I'm on the roll! Hehe...

Got back from Nadhrah's about +2hrs ago. She made cake! And muffins! And I ate them all! Aaaaaaaaaaa!...Hehe... So, I'm trying to burn them off now (ya, as if!), by checking my mails, my fb, and checking out Chelsea Clinton's Vera Wang! Lovely, lovely, SO love that wedding dress... :)

...with my coffee, of course. And talking about coffee, I was watching "The Proposal" the other night, and Margaret (Sandra Bullock) actually likes her latte with cinnamon. Hmmm, and I like my kopi 'o' kosong with cinnamon too, and vanilla. But, in Jules' kitchen, you'll just get a stick of cinnamon and a vanilla pod plopped into your mug! Not daintily sprinkled over the fluffy milk froth! Hehe... I even plop them into my plain water; I have loads of water in a day, and the cinnamon and vanilla can be reused until you don't taste them anymore...




Again, this is me sharing the little bits of things I do to try to maintain a healthy eating habit. Try, that's the key word! Cinnamon and vanilla have a myriad of health benefits. Cinnamon, for instance, can help lower blood sugar, while vanilla can help prevent cancer and memory loss. Personally, I have always loved cinnamon and vanilla because of the beautiful scent; to me, the perfume itself is enough to make me feel good. I love cinnamon and vanilla even more now because they are the only scents I can have around the house, that do not cause my boys to start wheezing! You can browse to find out more about the health benefits of cinnamon and vanilla, I think you'll be amazed... :)

I make it a point to keep a good stock of cinnamon sticks and vanilla pods at home. So, on my trips to Bali, the first things I look for in Pasar Ubud are these two treasures... :)
