Start Of School Holidays

School is out, YIPEE!!  Each morning as I drag myself out from bed at 4:45am feeling woozy as a result of insufficient sleep (less than 6 hours), I would wish that it’s actually a holiday that I have forgotten about and I could plonk myself back onto my cool and comfy bed.

What I am going to do during this 2 weeks school holiday is:

1) Catch up on my sleep
2) Sleep in
3) Repay my long overdue sleep debt
4) Be lazy and skip my morning exercise so that I can sleep in
5) See sunlight seeping through the blinds in my room the moment I open my eyes

We haven’t exactly confirmed on any plans yet but making a trip back to Ipoh and possibly to Penang to see Cass’ surgeon is on the cards.

What I really want to do right now is just to sleep until I turn insomniac 😀

This is my raw green of the day for today-

While our girls had herbs and spice cheese spread on crackers, I had my cheese spread on green capsicum. I wolfed down the entire green capsicum. It’s funny how we can condition our minds to love something that we once hated knowing that what you put in is only good stuff.  Capsicums were never in my list of favorite veggies. I never liked the pungent smell but I am now hooked on them. I eat one capsicum everyday.

What I really like about capsicums is that no matter how much I eat them, I don’t get the bloatedness that I get if I eat other raw greens. Plus capsicums are loaded with nutrients like vitamins A, C and K, carotenoids and dietary fiber which makes them immensely beneficial for the overall good health.  Capsicums also have vitamin B6 and folate that help to lower homocysteine levels, thus reducing the risk of heart disease.  Best of all, capsicums are inexpensive, can be easily washed unlike leafy veggies, you can munch them as you would an apple making it really convenient for you to load up on your phytochemicals and they are crunchy, sweet and bursting with goodness!  Capsicums just got right up my alley 🙂
