Couscous Salad

I don’t always eat salads, but when I do, I make sure they look like a garden with flowers of all colours 😍.

Never have I ever made a wimpy+boring salad. For me to eat a salad, it has to be aesthetically very pleasing and extremely satisfying for my taste buds.

Loved today’s lunch – super delish, Couscous Salad. Such a feasty looking bowl with just about the right balance of healthy carbs+proteins+vitamins and most importantly, amazingly palatable.

.

.

What’s even more important is that my mini man loved gorging on sucha a colourful bowl of food.

.

.

How I made it – tossed in cooked couscous, cherry tomatoes, english cucumber, red onions, red and yellow bell pepper, avocado, beets and chickpeas. Tossed salt and pepper and garnished with lemon and parsley 👉🏼👉🏼good to go!

Try out this amazingly fulfilling and power packed salad and let me know if you love it.

Healthy mornings

Mornings done right for this little guy, who’s abundantly in love with coconut water.

Coconut water is by far his mummy’s fave drink too, mainly because of the lovely health benefits it offers. Extremely hydrating and a wonderful source of nutrients and antioxidants, we love to make it a part of our diets everyday.

Healthy Sunday

Keeping my Sunday healthy, after all that binge I’ve done during the wedding season; gone up on the scale so bad 🤷🏼‍♀️.

Summers and vacays don’t allow you to cover-up the over eating done during the winter wedding season.

Clean eating is the key. I try my best to incorporate veggies and fresh fruits and thankfully the kiddo is fond of them too.

These stir fry veggies are the perfect munch for my junk cravings. They fulfil my appetite and detoxify my body. Also, eating clean definitely feels great too.

How I make stir fry veggies-

Just toss any veggies you love to eat in half spoon of olive oil (you can use butter but I prefer olive oil). Add salt and black pepper and mixed herbs. Sprinkle lemon juice. Good to eat.

Miracles of breastfeeding

Don’t we have just every reason in the world to do so?!

This is proof that women are nothing less than a miracle creating the most wonderful tiny humans and striving to provide them so much goodness to grow in the healthiest possible way. Breastmilk is wonderful. It is designed to fulfil the needs of each baby in the world in it’s own special way.

Human babies grow the most rapidly in the first year of heir lives and that is when they depend wholely and solely on breastmilk to provide them with the best of vitamins, minerals and antibodies that stay with them for life.

PCOD – Eating right

PCOD (polycystic ovary disease) has become increasingly common, amongst women, these days.

Taking preventive diet measures, helps controlling the aggravation of the condition and prevents long term problems related to it.

Since there is no cure for PCOD, here’s a quick guide to eating right to reduce the long term adverse effects related to it.

Foxnuts- our favourite superfood

Ever since the little one entered the world, I have never stopped thinking about the right ways to provide nutrition to his body. For the first 6 months life was easy because he was exclusively breastfed and there were no worries about thinking of and cooking balanced meals every day. It was after he turned 6 mo that the mommy mind had to work continuously to bring up a healthy child.

Giving kids the right balance of nutrition is essential to fuel their growing bodies. It is absolutely compulsory to maintain balanced nutrition on daily basis and some foods, what we rightly call ‘Superfoods’ make this task a lot easier than it is.

Superfoods are foods packed with a variety of essential nutrients or a particular nutrient in abundance to make up for our dietary requirements. One such superfood that baby K and I absolutely love munching on, during our snack times is FOXNUTS which are basically the seeds of the lotus flower.

We prefer to roast this otherwise bland and chewy snack, in butter along with salt and pepper, to make it turn crisp and savoury.

As much as it tastes delish it is power packed with abundant healthiness.

  • They’re considered to be very high in antioxidants hence they’re great for detoxification of kidneys.
  • They have a great amount of fibre which is great to relieve constipation and promotes weight loss.
  • Being high on calcium, they prevent arthritis and joint pains and make bones stronger. They’re also known to reduce any inflammations in the body.
  • They’re rich in protein hence promote muscle buildup.
  • They’re low on saturated fats and high on fibre thus a great snacking option for heart patients and diabetics.

Hence we try making such an amazingly beneficial food a part of our daily diets.

Clarins Lotus face treatment oil

Not very often, do I come across skincare products that suit me right in every possible way.

▶️Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil is one such product.

.

.

🆗I have never had the most perfect or ‘flawless’ skin ever, always been oily+acne prone and extremely sensitive.

.

.

▶️Post having a baby, it worsened, may be because of sleep deprivation. In search of a brand new, post-baby, night care regimen, I came across this face treatment oil. The guy gave me a little sample which I reluctantly accepted (because oil on my skin ), upon his advice and because it specifically read-for oily or combination skin. I used it as suggested, 2-3 drops rubbed on the palms and placed on the face without extreme massaging.

.

.

▶️It smelled great, I didn’t get any break outs so it was worth a try. I got this bottle and I haven’t regretted at all. Continuous use has made my skin more even toned, definitely. It makes the skin supple and hydrated and helps get rid of dark spots.

.

.

▶️Costed me 3300₹ for this 30 ml glass bottle (very delicate to handle) which I believe is reasonable considering this goes a long way.
