Waffle iron hacks

by Khushboo on September 25, 2014

There’s no way I can put up a post today without first wishing my sister the happiest of birthdays!  Aside from it being her #DirtyThirty, it’s Shyamla’s first birthday as a mom-to-be…exciting stuff!  No celebratory alcohol only means extra cake…Am I right or am I right ;)! So let’s talk about irony for a second!  A […]

by Khushboo on September 22, 2014

Over the past few years, there seems to be increased awareness about the dangers of acidity & the effect of blood pH level (measure of your body’s acidity) on overall health.  From inflammation to fatigue, acne, pain, excess weight gain, and serious health issues including diabetes & heart disease, an acid environment in the body […]

New-to-me products

by Khushboo on September 18, 2014

Hey guys!  I wanted to share a few new-to-me products which I’ve been loving lately.  For the record- I have not been sponsored/compensated/yaddy yadda yadda for any of my opinions.  I just really like the following products & thought they were worthy of mention: 1) Bean Therapy 62% Cocoa with Watapi Coffee chocolate: This is […]

by Khushboo on September 15, 2014

From health foods like chia seeds to goji berries to acai, kale, quinoa & so forth, various ingredients continue to gain popularity.  One that I never would have imagined to make the cut is chickpea flour a.k.a. gram flour a.k.a. besan.  Being a staple in every Indian household, I guess I used to take it […]

Cashew & Coconut Oatmeal Bars

by Khushboo on September 11, 2014

As open-minded as I try to be about food, there’s one thing which I will attest to being a snob about: Snack bars.  If they contain a dodgy ingredient list (i.e too long), I will 99.9% turn my nose up at them.  I rather have a piece of fruit & some nuts which are as […]

by Khushboo on September 8, 2014

Hey guys!  I had planned to write up a workout post for today, but that topic instantly got put on the backburner right after my lunch on Wednesday: Chicken Shawarma Tartine.   When I Whatsapped my sister about it, her reply was “All your meals sound so fancy”.  I’ll let you in on a secret- a […]

Snackity Snacks

by Khushboo on September 4, 2014

Let’s talk about snackity snacks for a second…everyone loves ‘em!  And if you don’t love snacks you’re weird.  Just kidding…kinda!  In all seriousness, I know there are 2 camps when it comes to eating: i.e. 3 squares meals versus 3 meal with a couple of snacks thrown in.  After plenty self-experimentation, I find that the latter […]

Currently (August 2014)

by Khushboo on September 1, 2014

Yo yo!  Another month, another Current Favourites post.  In the 4+ years I’ve been blogging, I don’t think it’s ever taken me this long to write a single post.  I answered one question, got distracted and then came back a few hours to answer another question…and repeat! Three days later, here goes… Current Book:  I’ve […]
