I’ve been troubled a lot by our cats’ litter box. It takes space, it is not that appealing and most importantly litter being spread around and even entering the house has not been the most pleasant thing! This is the … Continue reading

Being a wheat and lactose intolerant my options for a quick breakfast are quite limited. Cereals with milk are out of the question and buying alternatives are just too expensive, especially now when we got hit by a major economic crisis in Cyprus with recession just being at its beginning, cost saving is a main priority.

I tried it right away and I was super amazed that it really works; super easy and cheap to have a ready, healthy no-cooking breakfast. Continue reading
