Benefits of Brown Rice


About two years ago, I switched to eating brown rice when I cook at home instead of white rice because of its many benefits. I still enjoy white rice every so often as a treat, especially when I eat at restaurants.

Benefits of Oatmeal


Oatmeal is often a part of my breakfast and it is very healthy. I like to eat it with a little bit of cinnamon and sugar. It is easy and quick to make, and a great way to boost my day. I usually buy Quaker Oats but other brands will do fine as well. Here are a few benefits of oatmeal.

My Green Onions


‚ÄčI get joy from caring for my green onions that I grew from my dad and a family friend down the street of my parent’s house in Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii. I use it to garnish meals that I cook. Mini farm to table and healthy! #greenonion #greenonions #garden #gardening #farm #farmtotable #waikele #oahu #hawaii #gratitude #joy #pleasure #healthy #health #vegetablegarden #vegetable #vegetables

Oatmeal, Papaya, and Green Tea.


Most times I have a breakfast consisting of oatmeal, fruit, and green tea. Pictured here is papaya with lemon juice from my dad’s home garden at Pearl City, oatmeal with a little cinnamon and sugar, and green tea from Japan that I got from a friend I met in Fukuoka while I was serving as a Hawaii State Representative. These foods are filled with antioxidants and vitamins to prevent diseases such as cancer. They also lower bad cholesterol and prevent heart diseases such as stroke and heart attacks. #superfood #food #health #healthyfood #healthy #oatmeal #oats #grains #cinnamon #hawaiiansugar #sugar #greentea #tea #homegrown #garden #papaya #fruit #fruits #hawaii #pearlcity #oahu

Benefits of Green Tea


I like to drink green tea in the morning, with meals, and with sweets. There are so many benefits of green tea. My favorite benefits are the calming affect from the L-Theanine and the alertness from the caffeine. Plus it helps lower my bad cholesterol and prevents cancer and other diseases. Green tea doesn’t give me the jitters like coffee, though I enjoy coffee as well. #greentea #greentealatte #tea #beverages #ltheanine #caffeine #antioxidants #matcha #japanesetea #chinesetea
