Planning to Retire Soon!

If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Nutritional Supplement for Diabetics-My ABC Shake


My wife is taking a nutritional supplement for diabetics as prescribed by her doctor called Glucerna. This is similar to Ensure, but formulated for those who have diabetes. You could purchase Glucerna Shake in any store either in Vanilla or Chocolate flavor. It will cost you around $9.99 to $11.99 for a 6-pack 8 oz bottles depending on the store.

Today, my sister in law sent me a recipe for a homemade nutritional supplement, she called it the ABC Smoothie or Shake. A is for apple, B is for Bitter melon( ampalaya) and C for Cucumber or Carrots. Here's a very simple recipe. One Bitter Melon or Ampalaya (large size), One cucumber ( large) and One apple, yellow delicious ( large). Two carrots if you don't like cucumber. Blend all in the blender. Add water, the amount will depend in how you like the consistency of the shake. The shake taste good but a slight bitter taste because of the ampalaya. The bitter taste ingredient in the Ampalaya is known to lower blood sugar.
