When I was a child, I spent every vacation in my grandparent’s house in the province. When my grandfather became ill, his choice of food changed, or maybe it was his doctor’s advice. My mother feeds him oatmeal every morning instead of his usual rice, coffee, or bread. My grandma’s breakfast also changed into oatmeal. It became their regular breakfast since that time. That is why I grew up believing that oatmeal is for older people and those who are sick. It was later then when I studied nursing education that I learned the reason behind it.

Oatmeal is very nutritious and for most people that made oatmeal part of their daily breakfast, it is indulgent and comforting. When I learned about this, I tried oatmeal every other day. At first, my reason was for its health benefits, but later on, I came to enjoy it more and more. It is easy to prepare and indeed, very comforting. Oats with hot milk are my favorite comfort food on a rainy day. Do you know that you can also eat oatmeal before bedtime? Yes, it is not only intended for breakfast but anytime you want. A study said that oatmeal promotes drowsiness. Other than that, it is said to curb your hunger. Oatmeals can be eaten as desserts too. Instead of chocolate cookies, I learned to prepare oatmeal cookies for a healthier option. The reasons why you should eat oats and oatmeal are below.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
