    Let’s talk about one of the essential, like main essential—h20! Make sure you have filter cause who knows what are in those tap water.

    Dried nuts, beans, and honey are great for the body too!

    I've only eaten instant noodles once (just hours ago) in the past two months.

    There are 4 7Eleven near me, all a block away. They no longer allowed dine in and locked their chairs up but they won't shoo you away if you decide to eat outside the store, whether standing or crouching.

    Also there's still fast food – McDonalds, a local diner and a pizza parlor.

    And the running joke in our company is that everyday we have final exams instead of lunch.

    Hmmm, we are still eating normally. I got nothing but potato bread to add as an alternative... that's if you have leftover spuds... :blobokhand:

    I'll add the recipe and pics at a later date.

    In the meantime, enjoy your noodles. :blobninja:

    That ended there. So far I'm thinking of forcing myself to choose more than what I usually eat. I take supplements because I actually have a weak body and eating instant noodles kind of defeats the purpose.

    I've no discomforts so far other than few bouts against depression. :blobhero::blobhero:

    I find eating well lifts my mood. I'm not sure if it's biology or psychological, but it does raise my mood if I cook something nice to eat.

    Boil rice or, I forgot its official english term, but filipinoes call it malagkit, its a kind of rice that's very sticky, in a pot of water, then dissolve cocoa powder in warm water, then add the dissolved cocoa in the boiling water, wait for the rice to be cooked, and its done, I don't know exactly how its made but that's what I can see from how my siblings cook it.

    Forgot, one should also add a cup of sugar for every cup of rice put to boil, according to my siblings.
    And one can also add milk while the champorado is being cooked or add it later once the rice were cooked, also, make sure that there would still be a bit of 'soup' left for those who cannot chew properly.

    Or at least that is what my siblings told me when I asked them.
