Notes: Cook Your Own Meal

I used to be very easy going when it comes to food. But since I moved to J-town, I become very  picky. It is because I had a couple of bad food poisoning experience, where I ended up in the hospital. Since then, I prefer to cook my own meal as often as possible. It is because I often find it difficult to find comfort yet healthy food around me.

Here I am, wanting to share some of my favorite healthy recipe:

1. Banana Strawberry Soy Lassi
