As the summer commences we automatically switch from warm beverages to body cooling and energizing delights. We do not want to eat and rather drink in the summers as in water, aerated beverages and cooling drinks. But these do not fill the tummy and after a time we feel hungry again.
This is what leads to unhealthy eating and problems associated with weight gain. But smoothies come to our rescue and not only do we gain a full tummy satisfaction but also lose weight and inches and gain loads of confidence as our skin also becomes brighter and soft.
Now as we know Oats are the new superfood along with Quinoa and are experimented with nearly all Indian delicacies especially the breakfast ones like Upma or Idli. They make a lovely porridge as well. Check out my Oats and Cinnamon porridge here.
Pumpkin Seeds are nutritious with Omega 3 acids which are very essential for women. Mango is a fruit loved by everyone and Orange is a tangy delightful citrus product of nature. Mint is known for its refreshing, body cooling and medicinal properties. When all these come together how can anything not be good?

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
