Here I'm with another festive snack you can easily try.Last week my son felt stomach discomfort and I picked him back from school when I received the call.It happened twice and the main reason for it is over intake of junk food.He was advised to avoid packed foods which are very difficult for him.When he is little okay he was tempted to eat and so had little and the problem started again. He is very fond of chicken and counting days to eat it. Following him, we too decided to go with the same menu that we cook for him which will be veggies platter. I have planned to start the non-veggies meal next weekend as my daughter's birthday falls the month-end.
Nuts are rich in good cholesterol which is essential for the good function of our human body.But many avoid eating nuts feeling that will gain weight .This is not true actually good cholesterol does not help in weight gain only the bad cholesterol from refined oil make us obese.When I was watching a TV channel I heard Jamie Oliver saying, a handful of nuts like walnuts,pistachio and badam a day help to increase your lifespan by two years. So lets eat in limit and stay healthy.
Its Diwali , the festival of light in just fifteen days. I can see bloggers posting lip-smacking sweets and savories which really tempts me.I'm enjoying all the virtual treats of festive foods in social media and feel to grab those directly from my screen, pity me.Planning ,planning to do some festive post but never cook as feeling lazy.Yesterday somewhat I managed to cope over the laziness and try this snack .
The best way to utilise an over riped banana is to bake a cake/bread or muffin.Banana is one fruit which will always be been in my kitchen pantry and I need to yell at my kids to eat them.At times they might be some over ripe banana which can be consumed as such.I always use those in my bakes and you can check few of my banana bakes are eggless banana bread.,Nutella banana bread choc banana muffins,Ragi- banana muffins , banana choc brownies. etc.
Rice flour is the key ingredients for all snacks and some breakfast recipes.Though it is easily available in all departmental and small shops there is always joy in making our own stuff .I have seen my mom making this rice flour in a big batch and storing it for months to be used in puttu,idiyappam, kozhukattai and snacks.At the early stage of my family life, I never made them but later I realized its importance and started making them in big batch which comes in handy when no there was no ground dough in the refrigerator.As festivals are fast approaching hope this post will help you.
Breakfast is the most important meal of a day and it should never be skipped for any reason.It is said , have breakfast like a king , yes one must take breakfast to the full with all necessary nutrition in it and can avoid other meals.But we see many school/ college goers avoid the breakfast .This has to be changed atleast they must take a big glass of porridge made with cereals and some fruits.
Papaya is a super healthy fruit which one should never omit.This fruit is good for diabetic people also.I have seen my FIL eating this fruit fresh from the backyard after morning beverage and he used to always say fruit before breakfast is always good for health.But nowadays making children eat a fruit is really a tough job and parent has to find an alternative way for it.
