On Keeping the Family Fit and Nopalea Healthy Drink

   
     The other week, a break from work allowed me to spend time with the hubby and the kids. We had a grand time dining out and feasting on our favorite dishes at local restos! The hubby's favorite, braised noodles and siomai at our favorite Chinese restaurant left him with a huge smile and a challenge for me to cook them at home. You might want to wish me luck on that.


     Hot chocolate touching my tongue early in the morning is a perfect moment for me. Matched with pancakes and some bread and jam I am all set to conquer the day.

   
     Dessert is what the kids love most as expected. Show them chocolate mousse and strawberry crepe and their cheeks instantly glow. Though we treat them to sweet goodies once in a while we always remind them that we must maintain a healthy lifestyle.


     How I love to live long and strong to see the kids all grown up with families of their own. I would love in the future to carry my grandchildren on my shoulders and to run after them. The unavoidable stress at work  makes us lose energy at times and the hubby and I would sometimes complain of  feeling old and we're not yet even forty! We would take turns massaging each other's sore muscles and laugh at ourselves for not being experts at it and end up tickling each other instead; the joys and simple pleasures of a happy married life. We search endlessly for tasty treats to ease our pains because sometimes, to be free of pain, love just ain't enough.
     Nopalea is a tasty drink from the fruit of the Nopal cactus (Opontia Ficus India) with healing properties which have been used for centuries by native people. It is an immune booster with not only anti-inflammatory but also anti-toxin activity and seems to keep the brain protected. I would most certainly love to have a sharp memory and none aching joints to sit long enough one day to tell wonderful tales to little kids running around our home who would pay attention once their young looking grandma calls out their names. There's this Nopalea wellness challenge the hubby and I would love to try. The free 32 ounce bottle of this delicious healthy drink with minimal shipping and handling fee sounds exciting.


Surfing is what I will try next when my aching back is well! It has been on my "to-do-list" for a long time now and you bet, I will convince the hubby to join!
