Digestion

Easy Pale Green Smoothie

This simple, quick and easy vegan smoothie is ideal for warm evenings and a perfect way to pack more vegetables, fruits and nuts into your daily quota. Plus, it tastes amazing!! Unlike the other green smoothies, leafy vegetables are not added to this smoothie. If you wish you could throw a handful of spinach or kale leaves or any other leafy vegetable of your choice into your blender when you make this.

Sumac and chilli roasted pumpkin seeds

It’s the time of the year when we all get to harvest or buy a lot of pumpkins and squashes. Why not roast the seeds rather than throwing away? They make excellent nutritious and crunchy snacks. They are also ideal for sprinkling on top of soups or salads. 

The Health Benefits of Skyr

Skyr, Icelandic cultured yoghurt is getting more popular and can be found in all supermarkets these days. Skyr is an excellent vegetarian source of protein.

What is skyr, and how is it made?

Good Nutrition Healthy Life

Increasing your vegetable or fruit intake might not be an easy task and doing more physical activity is no different. Even though organic produce is not sprayed with chemicals, you might feel that they are more expensive for you to accommodate them in your daily diet. But what if we can get it all by simply spending some quality time in the back garden every day. According to Harvard Medical School, 30 minutes of general gardening could help you burn between 135 to 200 calories depending on your weight.

Banana and Dark Chocolate Pancake

Happy pancake day to all readers!!!

These outrageously awesome pancakes are the best I ever came across!! My pancake recipe is perfect for breakfast or as a workout snack.

Pumpkin and chocolate dessert

Pumpkin is one of the most versatile squash and thanksgiving is not complete without at least one pumpkin dish on feast table. This frozen pumpkin dessert is an alternative to usual pumpkin pie with a pleasant twist from chocolate and cinnamon.  Mellowness of pumpkin goes well with the nuttiness of almonds and sweet indulgence of maple syrup and chocolate.

Healthy Beetroot Flapjacks

Beetroots are in season now and there is no harm in adding a root vegetable to your favourite snack. So here is my recipe for wholesome goodness. This flapjack is mildly sweet, chewy and crunchy at the same time. Nuttiness of the oats and cashews goes well with sweetness of the beetroot, honey and maple syrup. Plus that extra sweet flavour and alluring aroma from cardamom makes it perfect anytime snack.

Cool Apple Smoothie

Even though the weather is getting crispier and leaves are changing colour, I still prefer a cool smoothie and nothing says fall as much as apples and pumpkins. Using up every single apple from my beautiful apple tree is a task I handle every year. Smoothie is one of the ways I prefer because I don’t essentially need to add unhealthy stuffs to it to make it taste good!

A gut reaction

I recently had an opportunity to write a featured article about digestive health in the spring edition of International Therapist journal. Take a look at the photos. Feel free to email me to get a readable copy!
