    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #88 THEME: KID’S DELIGHT – HEALTHY DRINKS – WEEK 3 DAY 2 As I mentioned in the Day 1 post for healthy drinks for kids, I want to refrain from using artificial flavors, additives, colors and today to the list I add harmful fats like hydrogenated vegetable fats. These are found in baked goods, restaurant foods, sold as margarine, finds its way into products like peanut butter, other nut spreads etc. Peanut butter in moderation is good for health. Making peanut butter at home is so easy. Roasted peanuts are processed in a food processor till it becomes a smooth paste. Its that simple. Why should kids have peanut butter included in their diet: Its rich in protein. Has good fat. Keeps…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:19    When I was planning what protein rich dishes I was going to make, peanut butter was on top of the list. I was planning to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich, but then I came across this delicious pudding recipe. It was also full of chia seeds so one recipe took care of both the protein rich ingredients peanut butter and chia seeds. What I really like about this pudding is that one can even have on days that you are fasting. I know many people fast all 9 days of Navratri without consuming grains, pulses, salt and vegetables. So here’s just the right kind of pudding to energize you and make…

    Healthy start to the day Many of us cannot begin the day without breakfast, some don’t have breakfast at all and some just need their daily mug of coffee or tea to begin the day. I cannot skip breakfast especially when I am not fasting. I love to have bread and tea or cereal. However, I have recently got hubby dear to have oats instead of cereal as they say even though he has bran flakes, all cereals contain sugar. I prefer to have a nice thick smoothie. Whatever ingredients I use for his porridge mine go into the blender. My day begins with work in the kitchen before the water disappears, yoga and then after a cold shower, and my prayers I relax and…

  • 494. banana ice cream

    NO SUGAR, NO CREAM        You maybe wondering what I am talking about. I am talking about an ice cream where you don’t need to add any sugar or any whipping cream, no sweetened condensed milk. I came across this recipe in an Eating well article. The original recipe used just the bananas, but I added milk to give it a more creamier, softer texture. You really can’t make out that this ice cream is not made from any cream or condensed milk. Easy to make, can also make it in minutes if you get unexpected guests. However, I do recommend a very strong blender for this task. You know the magi mix type or even the steel jug type which we normally…

    Happy Teachers’ Day   “A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning”. Brad Henry My love for the English language, Geography and Biology is all because of the wonderful, encouraging and inspiring teachers I have had during my school days. Teachers can either make a child hate or love a subject according to how they treat their pupils. My fear for numbers probably started when I was in the 7th standard and we had a horrible teacher. If you did not understand how to tackle a formula or understand any of the geometry or algebra, she would just shout out stating that she is just wasting her time with brainless kids. Yes she was like a witch for…

    scrumptious      My future daughter in law loves cookies. When my son came down for a few days (ok it was a couple of weeks), I sent back a tin full of cookies for her. Normally she doesn’t have any breakfast at home but might rush off to work after having a cookie or two. I baked the first lot and my son gobbled up quite a few within minutes. The remaining cookies were stored away to be packed but he somehow found the tin. I baked another lot, double the recipe this time and he managed to find space in his small bag to take a lot more. I sent some to my best friend to taste as her husband and her are…
