Seriously, do you read the labels of the products? Because most of the times, when people go to the supermarket, they are blinded by the beautiful labels of different products and don’t even take their time to read the label. And this is how people eat unhealthy stuff and even cancerous substances without even knowing. To be honest I read the labels because I am very aware of what I put inside my body.
Every food label has on it a table which show the nutrition facts. The nutrition facts mean caloric amount, the content of proteins, fats, sugar, fibers. The chart below shows how to read the nutrition facts on the labels.
As you can see from the picture, the information that pops in your eyes is the caloric amount of the food. The labels show up the caloric amount for 100 g of food and for a serving. The size of the serving can be 125 g, 200 g, 1 cup, 2 pieces of biscuits and so on. This information is very important because this way we know how much of that certain product we should eat in order to control our weight or lose weight.
Besides the nutrition facts you should also read the ingredients of the products. The producers warn you about the fact that the food may contain gluten, nuts, eggs for people who may have gluten intolerance or if they are allergic to nuts or eggs. This is another reason to read carefully the labels.
So eat smart and read the labels of the products before buying them!
I have never been into Korean dramas before. I was only watching them on tv on Saturday afternoon, when I was too tired of watching Romanian reality shows or when there was nothing good on TLC. The Korean dramas weren’t my cup of tea since I was getting bored in the middle of some episodes. Also when it was my mother in the same room, she didn’t like when I was watching Korean movies while she was working in the kitchen because she had to read the subtitles so she was making me switch on news channels where it was discussed about politics. (-_-;)
During the winter vacation, on Saturday afternoon I came across the Korean drama Love Rain. I moved into the living room to watch it peacfully because I understood that my mom is not a fan of Asian productions. Even though the tv show was somewhere at the last episodes, it caught my attention and I have decided to watch it from the beginning in order to understand better the story. In case there is someone who has never watched Love Rain before, here is a small summary: Continue reading →
Yesterday was the evening before the Easter Fast period and on that evening Romanian women cook different types of pies and doughnuts to celebrate the entrance in the following period. Starting today, March 3rd, is going to be fast which meanst that everyone should go vegan for about 40 days to clear their bodies and souls for Easter. I said ”should” because nowdays fasting is an option.
Yesterday we met up with our family friends to celebrate the evening before the Easter Fast. When we got in, the host was waiting for us with doughnuts. :3
After moving with Ryo, Tasha started to feel better as the days were passing by. She started to gain weight, her cheeks were returning to their healthy color, her soul started to be joyful again.

Hello there, lovelies!♥ It’s weekend and because I’m home alone right now I have decided to summarize some stuff that has been going on lately. ^^
I have started school… Finally! I was getting bored! (>~<) The first week of school was a bit chaotic because the schedule was unstable, I mean it suffered updates so many times that some teachers didn’t come to the lectures or seminaries. Also, some of the classes were overlapped. I can already say some first impressions about the subjects that I’m going to study this semester: Continue reading →
The first week of the second semester hasn’t even started well and I have already had an adventure that once again proves that the Romanian educational system is freaking crazy. Yesterday me and a couple of colleagues were passed from a teacher to another like a tennis ball because we weren’t having certain standards that the two teachers wanted. And I will start from the beinning as always. (^_^)
I have told you that this semester I have a subject called Foreign Languages. The lecture at this subject is every week and takes 1 hour and the seminary is 2 hours and is scheduled every two weeks. The foreign languages teachers have decided to make 2 in 1 of their periods which means that they make lecture and seminary at the same time. Continue reading →
I have never thought that I will live to see this. (. .) Starting today, February 25th, the public transportation company from the city where I go to University is coming to the village or suburbus or metropolitan area or wtf I should call the area I am currently living in because it’s slowly being incorporated into the city. This project has been discussed for about 2 or 3 months by the mayor of this village, the mayor and authorities of the city and the head of the public transportation company that runs in the city.
These days on Facebook there has been a lot of rigmarole regarding the right having free public transportation for College students. This rigmarole was caused by a certain College student ID card which is necessary in order to have season tickets for free on 2 route of each one’s choice. In order to explain what is going on here, let me start with the beginning. Continue reading →
