Being a mother is the most special task that I can ever have. During pregnancy, we moms know that our lifestyle and dietary choices will have a great impact on the health of our baby. But when cravings kick in, we often seem to neglect proper food intake.

Eating right, especially during the first trimester of pregnancy, is a must. I can’t blame you, eating fruits and veggies can get boring. It seems to always be the same routine. But let me share with you a simple, yummy and nutritious recipe that I’m sure you will enjoy.

It’s called Stuffed Potato Bowl that I  found on the Potato Goodness website. It is a vegetarian recipe that is high in fiber, perfect for pregnant moms! This recipe is recommended for pre or post workout, but the potato and a bunch of other ingredients like fresh kale, strawberries, chickpeas, and egg contain a host of vitamins and minerals that can benefit pregnant mommies.



INGREDIENTS:

1 medium russet potato, baked
1 cup Kale and Spinach blend, chopped
1/3 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 Tablespoons avocado, chopped
1 cup strawberries, chopped
1 egg cooked however you like

PREPARATION: 

Reheat baked potato for 30 seconds in the microwave.
Remove and slice vertically in half, then horizontally in half again.
Press the back of fork directly down into potato to “smash” it!
Season potato with salt and pepper if desired. Top with Kale and spinach blend.
Top with remaining ingredients and enjoy.

Did you know that a US study of women in the childbearing age (19-50 years old) indicated that most fell short of the recommended levels of vegetable consumption? Depending on a woman ’s calorie needs,  about  2  ½  to  3 cups of vegetables should be consumed daily.

With today’s diets, lifestyle choices and distractions, most women go with just a little over a cup of veggies a day.   It’s hardly ideal if you have a little one on the way. This means that you’re missing out on important nutrients like potassium, which can help you avoid horrible leg cramps in the middle of the night.

Bananas are good, but the best source of potassium is the potato. Potatoes rank highest in potassium content among the top 20 most frequently consumed vegetables. A medium-sized US potato at about 5.2 ounces packs 620 mg of potassium, way more than a  banana.  At that size and prepared with the skin on,  you’ll get only  110 calories.

Potatoes also have no fat, sodium or cholesterol. They’ve got loads of vitamin C and B-6, plus iron and fiber which help digestion and lower blood cholesterol. Potatoes are also high in folate, which is important in pregnancy for normal fetal brain and spinal cord development. Folate is needed for the development of DNA and other genetic material.

As your baby grows, he or she will gain energy in your womb through glucose. This may explain why your blood sugar levels may drop and cravings for starchy food begin. Potatoes are a convenient and delicious way to answer those cravings and will make you feel fuller faster. A serving of mashed potatoes can help reduce gastric acidity, too.

Remember though,  that pregnancy nutrition is a careful practice.  Eating right, especially during pregnancy,  entails not just consuming the right foods,  but the right amounts prepared the right way.  Avoid deeply fried preparations,  for example,  and choose less processed dishes like boiled potatoes seasoned with spices, olive oil, and vinaigrette.

Thoroughly clean the potato for preparations with the skin on. Try the potato baked, with less cheese and toppings than you’d usually add, or steamed. Make potato dishes in combination with other vegetables and meat, or as a soup or stew. Mashed potatoes with some vegetables and spices will also make your day.

Potatoes are a rich source of vitamins and nutrients for an expectant mother and for a woman who hopes to be pregnant in the future. Plan your best pregnancy diet with your doctor or nutritionist.    So remember to increase your veggie intake in general, and take a good long look at how potatoes can help your nutritional needs. The humble spud could be the answer to the nutrient gaps so many women are experiencing.

Potatoes USA, an organization that has thankfully brought US frozen, US tablestock (fresh) and US dehydrated potatoes to our shores, offers a lot of options for potato meals.

High quality US potatoes can be purchased from major supermarkets and groceries nationwide.  For more information on  US  potatoes, you can get in touch with the local Potatoes USA-Philippines office at +632.534.8534 and info@synergyasia.biz.

Parisian Shoes and Bags Planner 2019

I was just strolling around SM Department store shoes and bags section when I bump into this little kiosk with colorful notebooks. At first glance, I already noticed that it is a  planner. I asked the lady who is arranging the notebooks by then. "Ate how can I get those planners?" She then replies, " Ma'am puwede niyo po makuha yung planner in a discounted price of 199.75 pesos, kung bibili po kayo ng any Parisian shoes or bags. On my mind, it is perfect because I'm searching for a new clutch bag for my friend's wedding. Enough with the talking, now I'm going to share with you what's inside this notebook.

Parisian Shoes and Bags Planner 2019 colors

As I said, originally it cost 399.75 pesos, but when you're going to buy any shoes and bags from SM Parisian you can have it for only 199.75 pesos. A great deal right?

I think this is the first time that SM Parisian released their own Planner. The quality of the planner is good, it has a faux leather hard cover. A metallic gold engraved text of "twenty nineteen". The paper quality is also good.

What I like about this planner is the design is simple but looks stunning. Each page of the start of the month is a calligraphy-like photo. 

This planner is a good catch, unlike other planners that you need to collect stickers and spend around 1,000+ pesos. For only 199.75 plus your own choice of bag or shoes.

Althea Korea is serving us with a lot of new products for our delicate skin. Now I'm sharing with you this unique and irresistible peel mask which have many nutrients to help improve our skin conditions.

Milk Peel Cream Mask

Its active ingredients are AHA & BHA which help to peel off dead skin cells for smoother skin. It contains Casein Protein (milk) to provide moisture and help the skin to stay moisturized all day. It has a soft clay-like texture that bubbles up when massaged on damp skin to deeply cleanse the pores. It is also cruelty-free!



So I'm sharing with you my experienced upon using this product.


 Starting off, my face is oily and have some dark spots. Sorry for my pimple marks and pimple.


1. I splash some water on my face to dampen it
2. Pump enough product to your hands and lather it to your skin. In addition, I rather use a spatula to spread it all over my face. I think in this way the bubble will be not yet activated.


3. Wait a couple of seconds about 30-60 seconds. In those times, while the bubble is building up you can feel that weird sensation all over your face. It is the time where the nutrients penetrate on our skin.


4. Wash your face with a warm/lukewarm water. My personal tip, create a circular motion with your hands and massage your face.





Verdict 


I make my skin soft and smoother after washing and it brightens my dull skin. I will update you on my follow up blog for this one. Overall I'm in love with all of the products that I got from Althea. The Milk Peel Cream Mask is now available on Althea.kr at 10% off for USD8 (normal price USD9). For more information on the product, please visit the product page HERE.

An overwhelming total of 18,000 park guests gathered together last October 27, 2018 to remember the magic with Enchanted Kingdom and celebrate its 23rd Anniversary. Guests were left in awe as they witnessed the powerful stage of Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo along with James Reid and many more.



From all corners, the Spaceport was packed with people – both young and young at heart were in attendance. As soon as the Popstar Princess took the stage, all eyes were on her; the brightest tala of all. She performed her top hits ‘Tala,’ ‘Kilometro,’ and ‘Ikot-Ikot’ to which the crowd ecstatically sang along to. She rocked the stage with James Reid, who recently dropped the ‘Careless Mixtape’ last October 12. The suave singer-actor captivated the crowd with his charismatic voice and powerful moves dancing alongside G-Force. After performing their own hits, the tandem shared the stage for a medley performance, singing throwback hits from the 90s.

The Juans, Janine Teñoso, J.Crisis, and EK’s very own Victoria’s Way, Kingsmen and EK Circle of Artists graced the stage with their presence and performed a string of nostalgic old school songs. The night finished off with none other than the Sky Wizardry fireworks display that perfectly captured the magic.

Enchanted Kingdom’s 23rd Anniversary celebration was indeed a success. Once again, the park made it a magical experience for all guests, proving that it will continue to be the best and only world class theme park in the country. 

DJ Mark Thompson emerged victorious at the Red Bull Music 3Style Philippine Finals on Sunday, November 18th, 2018, at Xylo at the Palace, in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila. The newly crowned champion will advance to the Global Finals in Taipei, Taiwan, where he will represent the Philippines from January 20th – 29th, 2019.



Red Bull Music 3Style is one of the premier music tournaments in the world today. Now on its fifth year in the Philippines as an annual event, Red Bull Music 3Style brought out the best young DJs the country has to offer in a showcase of skill, creativity, and ability. Each participant was tasked to upload a five-minute performance video showcasing three different genres of music.


This year’s finalists included:

  • Arpee Ong
  • D’Mad Tweaker (DJ Jan Musa)
  • DJ Gavin Skewes
  • DYHA (Ernesto Alfante Jr.)
  • iNBiTuiN (Charles Angeles Jr.)
  • Mark Thompson

Before a crowd of over a thousand, each finalist was given a 15-minute set to showcase their skills, dazzle the audience, and impress the judges. This year’s judges included respected and internationally renowned names in the scene such as DJ Puffy and DJ Shintaro; former Red Bull Music 3Style World Champions, and DJ Shortkut; a member of the legendary group, Invisibl Skratch Piklz.

After a night of back-to-back competition, Mark Thompson prevailed as this year’s champion, with DJ Jan Musa in second place, and DYHA and iNBiTuiN sharing a tie at third place.
“I am lost for words,” shares 2018 Red Bull Music 3Style Philippine Champion, DJ Mark Thompson. “Like, never in a million years did I think I would win. I didn’t care about placing: I just wanted to do my set right and have a good time. Being a fan and watching the years before was already a big deal, let alone place and win. I can’t believe it.”

Mark Thompson rocked audiences during his set, which saw a drum solo in its closing moments. “What I did, because this is my first battle, was look at the rule book. I couldn’t compete with the talent, but I have ideas and I wanted to make these ideas happen. I can be creative and I wanted to mix the unconventional.”

With a Philippine Champion crowned, Mark Thompson now advances to the 9th annual Red Bull Music 3Style Global Finals at Taipei, Taiwan, from January 20th – 29th, 2019.
“I’m going to practice, practice, practice. I’m going to do my best and have fun,” adds Thompson. “I’ve never played in another country, so this is going to be another first. If you love it, work hard at it. It’s supposed to be fun!”

Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the best way to achieve physical, mental, and emotional health. However, following them can be challenging, especially for those who have formed unhealthy habits over the years.



The key to success is to slowly integrate changes into your life. Once you get into the habit of maintaining healthy practices and making them a part of your routine, you will start to see its benefits to your well-being. To help you get started, Santé listed five daily habits you can start integrating into your daily life.

Get moving 


Daily physical activities are essential to maintaining a healthy body and reducing the major risk factors for chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, non-coronary heart disease, hypertension, among others.

Exercising is not only good for the body, but also for the mind. According to FNRI-DOST, exercise helps enhance psychological well-being, improve self-esteem, and maintain motivation.

Simple activities like walking, running, biking, or even stretching, can help maintain weight loss. Committing to regular exercise may be challenging at first, but over time, as you continue doing it, you will start to see the benefits it can provide to your body.

Get more sleep

Sleep, just like exercise and a healthy diet, plays an important role in health and well-being. Loss of quality sleep not only impacts your mood and performance but, can also result to health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.

Getting enough sleep – seven to eight hours -- poses tremendous benefits to achieve both mental and physical wellness, so you can be at your best every day.

Manage distress 


There are many factors in our lives that can lead to distress, such as work, school, traffic congestion, and relationship problems. Distress is a natural reaction and, is the body’s ways of responding to the mental or emotional strain or tension from adverse or demanding circumstances. However, chronic or long-term distress can be a precursor to issues such as depression, anxiety, and even memory loss.

Thankfully, distress is something that can be managed. One good way to deal with it is through a balanced schedule. Try to find time for yourself in between work and social life. This allows you to have a new perspective, so you feel less overwhelmed. Having a social support where you can share your concerns can also help relieve distress. However, it is important to note that everyone is different. Thus, it is essential to experiment and find out what best works for you.

Avoid smoking 


It is no secret that tobacco has negative impacts on health. In fact, smoking remains as one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), tobacco kills more than seven million people each year. More than six million of these deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890,000 are caused by second-hand smoking.

By refraining from smoking tobacco, you get to reduce the risk of getting illnesses, such as lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, asthma, among others. In addition, you also get to protect the people you love from the dangerous second-hand smoke.

Make better food choices 


We’ve all heard of it before, but it’s true—eating healthy is good for you. By making smart, healthy food choices, you help your body get the nutrients it needs every day and lowers your risk to health problems.

The key to eating well is to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods from the five food groups namely: (1) vegetables and legumes/beans, (2) fruit, (3) grain (cereal) foods, (4) lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds and legumes/beans, and (5) milk, yoghurt cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.
