Quick and Easy yet Super Healthy Snacking Recipes by Breville Philippines

Snacks are often sweet, salty, fried or fast food take outs. Being a mommy of three, there's a lot of things going on at home and if may I want everything to be super quick and instant. Now here's my conscience kicking in... Yes, you manage to feed your child but is it is it healthy? 

I love watching cooking shows, reading cookbooks, and surfing the net for quick and easy recipes also I want it to be healthy. I like trying out new recipes to excite my kids appetite. Good thing Breville invited me for their Summer Ready Recipes workshop last April and here's how it goes.
Breville Philippines’ R&D officer Chad Datu and in-house nutritionist Dianne Dupa, RND

Facilitated by Breville Philippines’ R&D officer Chad Datu and in-house nutritionist Dianne Dupa, RND held at Abenson Avant Glorietta 3. Hosted by Breville Philippines Marketing Manager Darlyn P. Valenzona. Shoppers were up for a cooking demo and get to see the power of Breville appliances. I honestly was (from way back pa) amazed with Breville. I am particularly hoping and wishing, and praying for their juicers and blender. (^.^,)
