Healthy Homemade Energy Bar Recipe: No Bake Nutritious Snack for Preschoolers, Toddlers, Adults

What do you look for in an energy bar? Crunchy, sweet, nutty, and bursting with flavors is how I define these oatmeal energy bars. Loaded with fiber and essential nutrients, this energy diet bar  recipe uses nuts to add energy, oats to pack them with fiber and cornflakes for that crunchy effect.

Are you looking for a nutritious snack recipe for preschoolers? Perhaps you are interested in feeding healthy food to your toddlers.

Do you know toddlers need healthy fats for growth and development and to support their cognitive functioning?

We will cover fats in another post.
Let's talk about healthy nutritious snacks for toddlers and preschoolers.
Your tiny tot needs nutritious snacks for at least 3-4 times a day. Yes, this is plain truth. Their small tummies cannot go for the entire meal in one go, which means they need small meals, but healthy snacks in between that can supply their bodies with nutrients while keeping them full and healthy.

So what are healthy snacks for preschoolers or todd…

How To Cook Cracked Wheat: Yummy, Flavorful, Colorful Dalia Pulav

Broken wheat recipes are simple and yummy, of course. Mom makes the best dalia kitchdi ever. Every time I visit her, I make sure I savor it at least once.

As a great source of fiber, cracked wheat complements your dietary program. It is rich in vitamin B, which raises the health quotient of dalia or cracked wheat, making it a must-include ingredient on your daily diet and menu list. If you are looking for healthy recipes, then including cracked wheat in your diet is crucial. I find dalia for weight loss by Baba Ramdev as crystal clear and pure, so I have been buying both barley and whole wheat dalia from Patanjali stores.

Anyway, the cracked berries of whole wheat are distinctively nutty. A low calorie, versatile ingredient, cracked wheat is loaded with nutrients.

Is Cracked Wheat for Weight Loss Good?
Broken wheat belongs to the family of whole grain foods, which are critical to maintaining a healthy body weight.

Studies reveal that cracked wheat for weight loss is no joke. A Harvard…

Homemade Whole Grain Cookies: Nutty Crunchy Oatmeal Biscuits With Almond Butter

Baking with whole grains is so simple. Did I say baking with oat flour isn't that difficult? If you are a frequent guest on my blog, you already know that oatmeal is a superfood to include in your diet.

Here I am with another batch of healthy cookies with oatmeal. I am a health freak, but I am a cookie lover as well. Yes, I am too fond of cookies. If you have landed on this page, this shows you, too, are bitten by the cookie bug. Isn't it?

Well, it may be your love for cookies or for family that loves cookies that you have taken to cookie making. My cookie baking journey has been a beautiful ride thus far. It does not mean I haven't tasted failures. I have had too many failures in cookie making, and the journey is a sweet bitter story sometimes.

But I am not someone to be taken aback. You hand me some nuts and I will make cookies out of them. This is what cookie making is all about for me.

Anyway processed stuff like cookies do not count under healthy stuff. But there are…

Suji Upma: Healthy Breakfast Option for Diabetics

This is one unique Suji-vermicelli upma recipe that you will want to try out again and again. Ever tried suji-vermicelli combo for upma? Try my MIL's no fail upma recipe and you'll never go back to making upma the old way again!












Almost each one of you can make upma - yes, suji upma that is! I had never been able to get it right until I learned the secret from my mother in law, who has some amazing culinary skills.
She makes the yummiest semolina upma.





This suji vermicelli upma recipe belongs to her. I tasted upma for the first time when she made it for us after our marriage. It used be our early morning feast! I loved every bit of it.

But somehow I never tried to learn it from her for 4 years. Finally, I decided to take the plunge into upma making and learn the secret from her after successful failures, for my upma would always be mushy. I never liked it that way.

Contrarily. my mother in law or for that matter my sister in law are experts in the kitchen. They can create marv…

Whole Wheat Ragi Cookies: Baking With Whole Grains

I am a big fan of oatmeal digestives. This was the time to experiment with finger millet. This batch of ragi digestives gets inspiration from Padhu's Kitchen. I have always wanted to try out healthy cookies with whole grains. This recipe is exactly what I have always dreamed of - sweet, subtle flavors that are almost certain to make you nostalgic.

Tea and cookies are a match made in haven. Undoubtedly, this is a delectable combination. If you are a tea lover like me, you have got to be in love with cookies. When you can bake healthy whole grain cookies at home, you already know you have got a perfect accompaniment with your hot cup of tea.

Biscuits are usually made with white flour,  fats, and white sugar, besides a long list of additives and preservatives. Perhaps you know that these do no good to you body. Indeed these are harmful.

Additives and flavoring agents ensure a longer shelf life, while the latter add flavors to the biscuit recipe. Since cookies are baked on high heat,…

Suji Fruit Cake: My First Baking Experiment With Air Fryer

It's Christmas today and time to bake Christmas cake. Yes, this is not a typical X-mas cake, but I am extremely happy with the result. Perhaps it is the simplest yet yummiest fruit cake on earth using suji or semolina. The suji cake is baked in an airfryer - my latest investment.

I have recently bought Prestige airfryer after getting inspiration from our very sweet aunt Anita Chahal's innovative airfried recipes.

Yes, my first experiment with airfryer was a failure - tried making pakodas or fritters in my airfryer, I was disappointed since I wanted to make something special for my family in Patiala. Nevertheless I did not lose hope, and the next day, it was time to bake an airfryer cake.

Yes, I was little apprehensive, but the fire within me to experiment kept me on!
Then came my suji cake out of the airfryer.

Voila! It was such a hit with my family - with every single member loving every single bite of it.
Was I happy?

Is there any doubt? Go try this airfryer cake now! Of co…
