Sometimes, I do snack once in a while. Perhaps it is an easy access to a vending machine selling relatively inexpensive snacks.
An afternoon in this week, my choice was Made-in-Singapore Combe Snack of BBQ Chicken & Cheese flavour, because it has a Healthier Choice Symbol on its packaging.
After enjoying few bites, I read that it contains tartrazine (E102) - a synthetic lemon yellow azo dye - which is banned in Norway and Austria.
In the evening, Garima and Mohan gave me a bowl of chocolate ice cream. How can we resist such a delicious treat?
At the end of the day, what I want next is to detox and cleanse my body. How is about a glass of refreshing celery apple mandarin (CAM) juice?
A lot of fiber... tastes refreshingly sweet salty
