How to Fight Wrinkles, Signs of Ageing

Sagging, wrinkling skin is a sign of ageing. Who wants to age?
None of us.


When the signs of ageing start to reflect on our face, it surely is a sign of worry. Isn't it? I have had a flawless skin for decades. I will credit it to my water intake. Yes, I gulp down 8-10 glasses of water daily and have been doing this for ages - since I realized the benefits of water for skin and health.

I am still young - in my early-to-mid-thirties. But does that mean my face should start to show those ageing signs now that I have entered thirties. Those smile lines are starting to show up! I am ageing! But I am young at heart for sure. Nevertheless I am trying to find the best natural skin care remedies to fight the signs of ageing.

Everybody seems to be fighting ageing signs. What causes skin to age is the question that pops up every now and then.

The anti-wrinkle industry has become a big business.
Of course, everybody ages, and it is part of human evolution. We must accept what we are. But it …

Power Packed Oatmeal Digestives With Whole Wheat Flour, Almonds

Who says oatmeal digestives have to be boring? I love health food and advise others to pick healthy ingredients for their meals. After all, your health is in your hands.

Make food your medicine and not medicine your food.
My previous homemade oatmeal digestives post was loved by one and all. This time I have decided to add nuts to digestives. Well, I have added almonds, which are the healthiest of nuts and a good source of minerals, nutrients, fiber, and vitamins.  We have been enjoying almonds since childhood. My dad has always advised us to soak almonds overnight and have them in the morning. He says almonds are good for your brain. Rightly so!!

Almonds Benefits
Not only this, almonds help regulate blood pressure, lower LDL or bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol or HDL, reduce heart disease risk, boost cardio health, prevent from colon cancer, play a role in diabetes management, are great for hair and skin, and boost immune health.

So many benefits in these cute little nuts!! Se…

Dahi Ke Kebab/Cutlet With a Twist

Tikkis or cutlets are a widely popular snacking option in India. It won;t be wrong to say that tikki rules the Indian snacking world, with every other street vendor selling these potato cutlets.
I have grown up eating these savory snacks. My mom's sister makes delectable tikkis. I remember how she used to line up all the kids and then start making tikkis - serving each of us with those lip-smacking snacks with home made sweet tamarind dip. My mouth is watering as I am writing. I think she makes the best tikkis in the world.

Coming back to this dahi ke kebab recipe. Yes, I have used 1 boiled potato here, but along with it, I have included the leftover veggies that I made for lunch. I had made santula bhajja for lunch, which is a blend of raw papaya, raw banana, parwal (pointed gourd), lauki (bottle gourd), potato, brinjal, and turai (ridge gourd). So what better way to use these green veggies than stuffing them in cutlets? These definitely made the tastiest snack on earth. Did I m…

Oil: Which is Better

Query from Anita Chahal aunty ji:
I have a very basic query
Please advise,which is the best refined oil to be used...one that is healthy,as well as affordable
I normally use mustard oil for all dry vegetables ,,and soyabean oil (mahakosh,or ginni) for gravies etc.
Tomorrow ,I have to go to get my kitchen supplies,so thought of getting expert advice from you and Amit ji

Here are snippets from our discussion on cooking oil :

Though I am not an expert in the niche, my research says that we should be wise enough to interchange oils after a few weeks (say 15 days) . It is even better if we use different types of oil for different recipes.

Sunflower oil is considered one of the best and is full of vitamin E. However, it has higher sugar content compared to other oils. Mustard oil is good to go in dry veggies. I, too, use it for stir fries. However, it has high uric content. Rice bran is good to control cholesterol, as it has oryzanol - which is instrumental in breaking triglycerides and chol…
