Strawberry Quote

When I was younger, it was one of my favorite fruits, because it smells good, it looks appetizing, and it was rare for me to eat it. I still do love the smell of strawberry and I still find it super appetizing, but it's no longer one of my favorite fruits, maybe because I don't get to eat it that often, and some strawberry-flavored food can taste like medicine. ;)

I do eat a lot of vegetables, but not that much fruits, because of its price. In one of the "habit building blocks" I took was about taking more fiber, and fruits do provide fiber and other healthy goodness.

These strawberries were given by our neighbor when she got home from a short trip to Baguio City (Benguet), where most of the strawberries here in the Philippines are grown.

A cup of strawberries only has about 45 calories and it contains 13% of recommended daily allowance of dietary fiber. On the next strawberry season, I will surely do include this in my diet.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
