Will this be just another blog?

The answer to that question is "No way, Jose!" My goal is to make you laugh and hopefully you will accidently click on one of my cards and buy it (Right now, I'm holding up a pocket watch and swaying it back & forth as I'm trying to hypnotize you, "You're getting sleepy"). This is where I will chat about just anything I feel like, while promoting my goods! Hey Guys, not those goods!! Keep your pants on!

Just a few of my Goods! I think I heard one of my cards say, "Take me home!"

Is Brown Rice Nice?

Lately I've been on the craziest Fiber Kick ever! Not sure what has obsessed me to want to cleanse my system out; perhaps it's related to my exercise program and something called New Years resolutions. I read that we require 25-30 grams of fiber each day! Whoa, now that's a Sh*t load of fiber (no pun intended)! I even found a fiber calculator that tells you how much fiber a person needs to consume based on your height, age and weight. I wish there was a calculator that stated how many cupcakes I need to eat, before I pass out (I love my cupcakes, but I’ll use that as another posting one day). Recently, I sadly switched from white rice to brown rice, which is driving me crazy considering I'm Asian and steamed white rice is a staple! So in honor of the switch, I made a card that says “I love brown rice” (I have to admit I don’t love it, but you know if you repeat something enough, you start to believe it).

  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog! :)

    I DO love brown rice, especially when it's in combination with wild rice. I love the texture and the nutty flavor.

    I must say though, I do love white rice too, especially when it's sticky, but if given the choice, I will always choose brown as it's just the healthier option.

  2. 25 grams is a lot but it's what we are supposed to be eating. Luckily I like brown rice and all that good stuff:) I am always trying to fit more fibre in. We buy the Fibre 1 granola bars as a snack. They have 5 grams which is pretty good.

  3. I love your pun! That is a lot of fiber!

  4. Oh my gosh, you crack me up! I'm so glad you posted a comment on my Etsy Treasury so I could find your blog! You're awesome... :)

  5. This was such a funny read!! I don't envy you with the brown rice although I eat whole wheat pasta so I'm doing something good :)

  6. Almay, I love your sense of humor. I enjoy your blog and am a follower now:)

  7. You have more rice "balls" then I do... switching to brown rice that is! I've decided to use Benefiber. Cause the quote you used says it all! :)

  8. You can also eat CAMOTE instead of the brown rice. My wife has given up on white rice for over a year now! Instead we have a lot of Camotes (brown, yellow, blue) in the house.
