Three Things About Myself:

  • Tea. I love to drink tea at any time of the day and year. I prefer Green Tea but I like tropical Teas as well. My love for tea developed when I went away to college and it grew when I studied in London.
  • Soup. I am a sucker for good soup with hot sauce. Though I am now Pescatarian, I enjoy delicious vegetable broth and a whole lot veggies in one bowl. Oh! and hot sauce on the side.
  • I come from a big family, I have five sisters and one brother. I have five nephews and two nieces. They are my world!!!!
  1. If you could change your first name, what would it be and why? With all honesty, I would not change my name and if I had to I will put up a good fight. Why? I truly cherish my name. My name defines who I am as a person. Unique, Bold and Beautiful are the words the stand behind my beloved name. Its Deyla, pronounced (Day-lahh).
  2. If you were given a million dollars today, how would you spend it? Well first I will thank God and spend the day speaking to him and asking for specific directions. I will take my students on a Educational Vacation trip to their choice of destination, taking them out of The Bronx for the very first time. I will invest in a few stocks with my husband. I will bring a cafe into my community in The Bronx, so that we can have a nice place to have our coffee and baked goods. In that cafe, I will offer volunteer opportunities for students in the area. Also, I will cut a check for my high school and the college that I attended. The rest, I will seal and put away.
  3. What is your most favorite thing about your blog? Writing. I love to write and it makes me feel good to know that I am helping someone out there. My blog also draw me to new people from different places in the world. I have a gift in helping others and I am happy to know that I can do this by having a blog.
  4. What gives you the greatest adrenaline rush? When I over hear my students talking about something that I have taught them in class. Immediately, I fill up with joy because they are learning with me!!!!
  5. If animals could talk, which animal would be the most entertaining to listen to? Birds. They have the ability to fly and land anywhere. They will be more honest than the news, capturing the real deal. That will be super cool.

With Love, 


Fueling my body with green apple and peanut butter. Not only are Apples rich in fiber but they are also great for digestion. Peanut Butter is packed with protein and are also very filling. My goal is to look and feel my best so I vowed to eat like I mean it. So I built a lifestyle that includes fresh foods on my plate everyday. This transition has me feeling, thinking and sleeping better. I underestimated the power of food and how it effects me. I learned that what I eat today, determines how I feel tomorrow. What is your food doing for you? Are you fueling your body or just feeding your body?

Happy Eating, 


Avocado is a delicious fruit that detoxifies and supports skin hydration. This fruit is known as a super food because it has a ton of benefits. Avocados are also good sources of energy. I love them because they are very filling and can be incorporated in any meal of the day. Slice some up, lay it on top of some delicious homemade bread, add a sprinkle of black pepper & sea salt and enjoy! I make my bread completely from scratch, I find that it taste much better and I like to know exactly what is going into my food. However, any bread at your local food store will do just fine.

Happy Eating, 


Today, I am fueling my body with my favorite fruits. Apple detoxifies, Banana supports healthy hair and nails & Strawberries boosts our immune system. Have your food work for you. Lets change our approach to food. Need to detox? Grab an apple. Need stronger nails? Grab a banana. Need help with your immune system? Grab a bowl of strawberries.


Happy Eating,
