What’s with the weather? One day, you’re cold and happy snuggled within a comforter and on the other, the sun is out beating the sweat out of you. It’s no strange coincidence that so many people are unwell! This year, flu, cough and cold have bitten more people than ever. I mean just in my office, at one point more than half the girls, we are a girl’s only office :), were on sick leave! With examinations around the corner, it’s also time to get the kids immunity up and running at full steam.
Mumbai, are you ready to run the Marathon? And, what are you powering up with after your run? For those of you who aren’t going the whey way, I suggest sattu. It is packed with iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and fibre, and hydrates the skin from within! For those of you who aren’t aware of its goodness, 100gms of sattu contains 21grams of proteins and 44 grams of carbohydrates. It’s the perfect after-marathon drink as the carbs put back all the energy you’ve lost and the proteins repair damaged muscles. Combined with lime juice, mango and salt, it’s the perfect electrolyte balancing energy drink.
Which kid doesn’t like a cookie? As a kid, the only reason I would reach for that glass of milk was for that delicious cookie that came with it! However, things are different today, people have become a lot more aware of what they are eating by adopting healthy living, but are kids missing out on the goodies. Here’s a brookie, a combination of a cookie and brownie, that’s amazingly delicious, healthy and easy to make.
From prep to baking time, it takes all of 30 minutes. And it’s made with absolutely no added sugars and is gluten- and lactose-free.
Most people are always on a diet! And sadly, ‘diet food’ means picking up prepackaged foods with a ‘diet label’ on it! Eating right, really need not be so tough. In an attempt to simplify eat, I’ve started to post recipes of foods that are simple to make, nutritious and fun! This breakfast juice, for example, will keep you full till lunchtime! Try it.
As a kid, I would wrinkle my nose at anything that seemed ‘healthy’. Good nutritious food had to be slipped into my diet without me noticing it, which was kind of tough, cause the kitchen was my playground. I remember mom having to hide the kokum bottles, as they would be wiped out in one afternoon! I just loved that sweet, sour, salty flavour. That’s all I would want to eat, anything without it didn’t qualify as food!
Cooking for kids can be tough. And so when I was asked to design a menu for kids, I decided to post some too. The catch, when cooking for kids is to give food interesting names. 🙂
I’ve been going crazy at work! And at home! and with my new workout schedule–which is actually just trying to figure out how to lose weight? And lost in all that mental cobwebs is the blog, which hasn’t got updated in a while. However, now that I’m back lets start with something that spruces me up every morning. It’s a breakfast smoothie, which can can easily be converted into a dessert 🙂 or into chilled oats in a jar! Read to the end to know how.
