Just as everyone has different tastes in food, there are certain kinds of food that I don't like. Personally, I don't like celery, Chinese parsley, macaroni, Hokkien noodle and I don't like the taste of food that has black pepper in it (don't ask why), etc.

I couldn't remember what this was. Biting it was like torture for me but I tried it anyway.

Oh! Nuts. Well, I don't eat peanuts but I love peanut butter. I don't eat hazelnuts but I love hazelnut white coffee.

Speaking of nuts, almonds are one of the most nutritious of all nuts!

Did you know that you can lose weight by eating nuts? For many years almonds were considered 'fattening'. However, studies, including the Nurses' Health Study and the Physicians' Follow-up Study showed those who ate the most nuts tended to have lower body mass indexes. Although almonds are high in fat and calories, eating them in moderation can actually help with weight loss. Wow, it seems like eating nuts is a dieter's dream come true!

Besides that, almonds have great health benefits in terms of healthy skin. They prevent premature appearance of wrinkles, black heads, pimples and dry skin as well. Already in the 1600s, a French woman of fashion concocted an almond based cold-cream which was credited for keeping her face wrinkle-free until the age of seventy!!!

Almonds also have a stabilizing effect on sugar and insulin levels after meals, offering protection from diabetes and beneficial in treatment of constipation since they increase the fiber content of the food.

Oh, almonds contain more magnesium than oatmeal or even spinach. Are you listening, Popeye?

By the way, check out these assorted pastel Jordan Almonds at Oh! Nuts!

Eat nuts, don't go nuts!

Speaking of nuts, i love anything about nuts except people who are nuts. Whoaho!!

Now, that is a surprise, i like black pepper. I thought you dont mind em since you always eat outside, hence trying different types of food.

Never tried hazelnut with coffee, but once i bought a cadburry hazelnut milk powder, but the taste were too overwhelming and i didnt like it.
