There are days when I’m completely bereft of ideas for cooking or baking. Then there are times when it all just comes rushing, and all I want to do is be in the kitchen fearlessly creating, trying new recipes with no worries about how the final dish will turn out. There are hits and misses,but lets focus on the hits, shall we? Like these Lavender Buckwheat Jam Scones!
As the onslaught of rich meals and desserts continues in this season, I like to balance out with light, healthier foods whenever possible. I don’t believe in any diets, or cutting out on any food groups. My strong philosophy towards eating has always been that of moderation – Consume sensible portions of everything ( unless there are medical reasons not to do so), exercise at least three times a week, treat yourself kindly. And so after a night of Diwali party, its a good idea to detox, soothe and energise yourself with this utterly delicious Green Smoothie the next day! 🙂
As Diwali approaches ( rather fast this year!), we are all getting busy with cleaning, decorating our homes, thinking of new interesting recipes to serve at our Diwali parties, to take as hostess gifts and also for visitors dropping in to wish us. And if you have forever hungry kids like mine, festive season notwithstanding, then this Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball recipe will sure come in handy!
If you all didn’t already know, we are a chocolate worshipping family! Because every night has to end with dessert, I like to make somewhat healthier options and in smaller servings like this Fudgy Skillet Brownie. This way the cravings and portion control, both, are taken care of !
