This trip is a popular one, so expect the trains to be crowded, especially during rush hour when commuters are heading to or from Monaco.

Funny Serious but True: 15 Things I Hate about Eating

funny serious dra martha castro tijuana los angeles america mexico

 

Funny Serious Things I hate about eating and eating habits:

 

funny serious dra martha castro tijuana los angeles america mexico

 

My funny serious but true things I don’t like about eating:

 

  1. I hate that I have to count my calories mostly all the time so I don´t gain weight.

  2. I would love to eat  beef medallions or a big chunk of steak everyday without worrying that if I would clog my arteries with triglycerides and…..oh no!

  3. Cooking everyday? Yup, gets awfully tiring doesn’t it, especially when I have hundreds of other things to do during the day.

  4. I over eat one day, then I feel guilty

  5. Spilling food on my new blouse or dress.

  6. When I cannot control myself and have double servings, my belly feels pretty bad. Yes, I hate this feeling and then the guilt…sucks!

  7. I hate when people eat with an open mouth and make noises…it is gross!

  8. I can’t stand to eat with people who  don’t have manners at the table.

  9. I don’t like it when people want to impose their eating preferences on me: are you a vegan? I am not. Vegans  have this annoying way of preaching their beliefs upon others, it’s my choice and you can’t expect everyone to go vegan.

  10. Gluten in my food.

  11. GMO food…ugh!

  12. Having to unbutton my button/s after eating.

  13. Heartburn anyone?

  14. The food delivery people take too long…I lost my appetite by then.

  15. Oh, I hate eating alone.

2 Vegetable Recipes that don’t Taste Like Vegetables

Vegetable Recipes That Don’t Taste Like Vegetables

 

2 Vegetable Recipes that don't Taste Like Vegetables 1

 

There’s so many diets out there, I can’t keep track anymore! Who’s to know what’s the right way to eat?

 

No grains? Low carb? No meat? Mainly meat? 

 

However, the one thing all diets seem to have in common is that greens, salads and natural produce are good. 

 

They’re nutrient dense, they fill you up will relatively little calories, and they keep your body’s intestines functioning properly.

 

So to help, I’ve assembled a few recipes that claim to make veggies not taste like veggies.  I have tried these recipes and they look good and taste delicious!

 

Carrot Fries

 

These things look pretty good! It’s seriously just carrots with olive oil, salt, and pepper. And they’re baked instead of fried.

Mashed Cauliflowers 

 

Instead of mashed potatoes, have mashed cauliflower. The texture, color, and (hopefully) taste of mashed cauliflower is pretty close to mashed potatoes.

Costa Rica is a Paradise and its Food is Lip Smacking Good

costa rica dra martha castro tijuana mexico california usa

 

Costa Rica is a very exotic place to visit. If you travel there please make sure you stay at least 3-4 weeks minimum so you can relish everything this enchanting country has to offer: its rainforest, trekking experience, the waterfalls, the volcano, the coffee plant tour, the white water rafting and of course, its delectable and most palatable food.  Costa Rican Tilapia

The cuisine in this exotic country is hearty, savory and always satisfying. While it doesn’t have the spice of Mexican or the grilled skewered meats of Argentinian food, it has a style all its own: like an easy chair or a meal from your grandmother’s kitchen.
