Hi my dear readers :) I can't believe April has already come to an end. I can't say I'm sorry either because this means less rains and more blossoms and summer in another month.

Food Favorites this month have been:

I'm not a great foodie but I love my junk food and certain healthy stuff too if I feel it satisfies my taste buds and I'm not much into cooking either unless its a really easy instant kind of recipe or something which doesn't involve cutting veggies and cooks fast. Also, I don't have a gallbladder which means not all foods are accepted by my stomach, and I'm a hypothyroid cum PCOS patient and have to keep my weight in control. So keeping that in mind I have to pick and choose and experiment with what is acceptable and not. This doesn't give many options but I'm on my mission to find the best out there. Hence this month's faves have been:

Amma's Kitchen Banana Chips - Potato chips are hard to digest and can make me gain weight but these are a better, tastier and healthier option.
Milleville Bran Flakes - I start my day with a cup of this and zero fat milk. Its filling, energizing, and digests easily.
Deglet Noor Pitted dates - They fill stomach easily, digest easily, they're tasty, and healthy.
Activia Yogurt Peach - Nice alternative to regular desi dahi which is difficult to digest. This helps regulate digestion naturally and comes in a yummy variety of different fruit flavors.
Orbit Gum - For bad breath which is usually associated with patients who cannot digest all foods and who have sensitive teeth. I have both.
These foods won all odds and stand winners for me for this month. Lets see if they continue to please me and if I can find some new winners.

Other favorites:
TV Shows: Smash, Revenge, Greys Anatomy, New Girl
Movies: The Hunger Games
Books & Magazines: The Hunger Games trilogy, Allure and Lucky Magazines
Music: What Doesn't Kill You by Kelly Clarkson
Clothing: An Elle top in coral color from Kohls, Skinny Jeans from Macys, White Capri pants from Felines Basement, sandals from Payless, boots from Payless, Peacoat from Old Navy.
Jewelry: Chuvora Necklace from amazon, Silver Turquoise Necklace from amazon.

LA Colors Eyeliner/Brow Pencil Black
Maybelline Lip Liner 25 Toast
Neutrogena T/Gel Original Formula Shampoo
CVS Dental Floss
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lip Color 285 Temptation

Food: Dole 100% Juice, Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Thai Style Chicken & Vegetables, Lean Cuisine Roasted Chicken with Lemon Pepper Fettuccini.

Other Regrets:
