Ramadan Food Part- 1 Intro

Ramadan is 10 days away and as usual, as it approaches every year,so many things have to be put to order.

Firstly, for those who are diabetic and have certain diseases, the medications and their timings get altered,so I think many people consult their doctors as the first few days can be very difficult.The sugar is going down...Blood pressure gets unstable..but most of us...have all these sorted out already.

Secondly, making prayer a must in my routine.Now to be frank I make it a priority to do my prayers and read the holy book as much as possible.I abstain from some of my favourite things and a change of lifestyle happens like my hubby quitting smoking during the day.

Thirdly, cooking.What to cook???? A question every woman asks herself.There was a time when iftari was all about stuffing our faces with pulaos and biriyanis and heavy stuff,trying to replenish or make up for all the hours you didn't hog.In the end,we just gained weight and what should have helped you lose some pounds become the romantic affair of eating and piling the pounds on.

Anyways, lots of people have gatherings they attend.Families or friends coming over or inviting us over to open fast.Over the years, we have changed the way we eat especially during Ramadan.

Why am I boring anyone reading this....we are here for the food! I love to cook and try out recipes,so always on the look out for improving My skills ,be it cutting or cooking.Just to bring a change in the usual food,I have decided to put up cooking videos I watch on YouTube of these amazing people who have a great passion for cooking,are foodies and put out recipes for daily cooking,simple cooking or extravagant, sweet or spicy or savoury.

But I will put up recipes that are more Indian or Pakistani or Arab.I love sweets but being diabetic wont put up those videos.Also,I ain't putting up the normal recipes that we generally cook.I hope you will enjoy these posts from these women and men.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation.

Fibroids

One of the many things that grow inside a uterus and cause problems for some while others barely know about it in their life are FIBROIDS.I was recently diagnosed with multiple fibroids and cysts when my usual monthly periods became a little too unbearable.We got an ultrasound done which led to many other gynecologists doing the same thing for confirmation.

My fibroids are small but I have been told that my periods will be stopped for a couple of months and regular ultrasounds will be done to ensure that no fibroids are growing out of proportions or are getting benign or malignant,which again is done through a biopsy.I just thought I will write about a  bit of my journey as I spend this time scared.

I told a couple of my friends and they all had scary stories to tell about how some relative didn't take care of themselves and were finally diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and died from it.I had my share of panic attack yesterday night and after a proper informative chat with my …
