CHECK IT OUT!

this is an example of one of their recipes. this is a healthy version of CPK’s original BBQ Chicken Pizza. since the original version is fattening and unhealthy, Hungry Girl has made this new recipe so that girls all over the world can eat what they want without having to feel guilt. BEST CREATION IN THE WORLD.

Ingredients:
1 stick light string cheese
3 oz. cooked boneless skinless lean chicken breast, chopped
2 tbsp. your favorite BBQ sauce with about 45 calories per 2-tbsp. serving, divided
1 high-fiber or whole-wheat pita
1 1/2 tbsp. finely chopped red onion
1 tsp. chopped cilantro

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Break string cheese into thirds, and place in a food processor or blender — blend at high speed until cheese takes on a shredded or grated consistency. (Or just tear string cheese into pieces and roughly chop.) Set aside.

In a small dish, toss chopped chicken with 1 tbsp. BBQ sauce. Set aside.

Place pita on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Spread remaining 1 tbsp. BBQ sauce onto the exposed side of the pita, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge.

Sprinkle evenly with shredded/grated cheese. Scatter saucy chicken over the layer of cheese, and then sprinkle with onion.

Bake in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes, until pizza is hot. Top with cilantro, slice into quarters, and enjoy. YUMMMM!

In the World…

27Apr10

Make a connection between one of the texts we have read this year and the world

Out of the texts we have read so far this year, I think that Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson shows a lot of relevance to what goes around in the world. In this novella, Dr. Jekyll has to take care to hide the things that are looked down upon by society in order to maintain a good reputation and a healthy image of himself to those around him; this is why he takes up his evil persona, Mr. Hyde, so that he can do things that he normally couldn’t and get away without having to feel the guilt. The Victorian Era was especially stringent on the appearance of proriety and behaving in the correct ways. Even now, this still applies. In our world, we go by this rule of having to look good in front of our peers and hiding all of our faults and downfalls from them. If we don’t hide them, we never know what’s going to happen. In the novella, after Mr. Hyde committed terrible deeds, he would be hounded by everyone and hated by all the people. In the world today, this is still the same. We make one mistake, and this can end up being fatal. I guess we all may have times when we could just have our own evil persona and do whatever we want in that form and come back to our normal selves and go on normally with our lives without any consequences.

GIMME SUGGESTIONS


Junior Year…

19Apr10

Junior year… is finally coming up for us, the Class of 2012. Oh, how we have all feared this period of time that everyone seems to call “hell.” Every year, oh, how I have heard the juniors of that certain year complain and complain and complain! And now, it’s my turn, and I am FREAKED. As I look at my course request list, I feel my heart beating faster and faster and my breathing just stops! Will I be able to survive next year, while possibly taking AP Calculus AB, AP English Language, AP Chemistry, Physics, and Chinese VI…. OH NO, WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO?

But I guess, I feel better in that I’m not the only one freaking out; everyone else seems to be also worried about their schedules.

Everyone’s welcome to come to my funeral next year 😀


Adore YOUUU

So this is a new favorite. I just got this song last week from my friend, and I have already listened to this song over 100 times. I find myself amazing teehee. My friend tells me this song isn’t THAT good, and I guess it is pretty cliche. I just find it appealing. I just find myself liking THESE sort of songs, the soft ones with a smooth, relaxing melody and the singer has this serene voice. I think I should stop listening to so many sappy love songs though.


YOGURT <3

Another one of my favorites:

So simple, good for the body, and still delicious! A great source of protein and calcium, just to let you all know.

But something that I love even more than yogurt is… FROZEN YOGURT!

It’s been a while since I’ve had special fro-yo. Korea’s Red Mango is delicious, no lie. It’s creamy and smooth; the textures are heavenly. But I still miss the special flavors they had in America. Stores I went to frequently were Yogurtland, and a Pinkberry was built just before I came to Korea. Pinkberry and Yogurtland are really creative by forming new flavors. Pinkberry recently made the mango-flavored frozen yogurt and they also have things like frozen yogurt fruit parfait and swirly flavored yogurt cone. Yogurtland provides even more different types of flavors: New York Cheesecake, Peanut Butter, Dutch Chocolate, Eggnog, Double Cookies and Creme, and the list can go on and on. I miss this so much 😦


APPLES!

09Apr10

TODAY, I started my day off with a nice, juicy, yummy apple. Around six months ago, I started eating apples everyday. My mom helped me get into this habit because she said it’s healthy, obviously, but now it’s more than a habit; it’s a lifestyle.

Anyway, one good thing about apples is that they keep you full. Apples include a lot of fiber, and eating the apple involves a lot of chewing and tricks the body into thinking that it’s eating more. Apples can also lower blood cholesterol and reduce risks of diseases like certain cancers, diabetes, and stroke. They are rich in antioxidants and help protect the brain from detrimental effects of stress. Red apples are said to be good for the heart and memory function, while green apples are beneficial for bones and teeth.

Advice of the day: try eating an apple a day.

P.S. Apples should be eaten in the morning though.
