Target account hacked - hacker ordered $50 gift card for himself - SORRY HACKER

So, I am not going to agree with you that checking emails at 5.30 am in morning is bad habit. I just saved $50 just because I checked my email, and of course the hacker was not smart enough.

So, let me sum up -

Some hacker hacked into my target account
I had my credit card saved with my Target online account
So this guy ordered a $50 target gift card to his email, although it appears to be my own email address

Anyway, Target sent an email notification of the purchase, seeing that I figured the problem, so I logged in and cancelled the order.

Here are my quick tips -

pick a tight and secured password

do not store your credit card with any online site

Finally, in case someone hacks your account and uses your credit card account, make sure you monitor your credit card statement, do not ignore small transactions, in case of any fraud , report that to credit card company.

Pros and Cons of snacking on nuts

I thought of sharing my experience of changing my snacking habit. So I was trying to switch from processed foods available in any major super market, I did my research and found that nuts are good alternative to snack on.

So I ran to supermarket and bought trail mix and different nuts.  

Well, let me tell you this they tasted so good that portion control was possibly missing from my dictionary.  And as a result I gained weight. The salty snacks had sodium and fat, but the fact of the matter is I could not limit the portion I was consuming.

Anyway, I changed to walnut and almonds. And I changed to raw nuts, so they do not taste so good anymore, and there is no salt. You can buy almond and walnut from big box stores and save some money. And now I add some walnut and almond in my oatmeal or making my apple crisps.

Now, I found jerky and cheese strings to snack on and now portion controlling is really easy. So gaining weight did not drive me nuts anymore. 

I would love to know your experience, you can put it in comment below.

Why did I switch from fresh to frozen?

You know how everybody says eat veggies and maintain your good health and all. You read over and over again, how important it is to eat the veggies, now let me tell you why did I switch from fresh produce to frozen veggies. 

First of all, I am lazy, I mean super lazy, most of the time I do not feel like chop the veggies, frozen veggies come diced.

Fresh produce usually go bad pretty fast, frozen veggies usually last longer

Frozen veggies usually come in recipe ready packs, that's big relief
