Oats Porridge

Exercise should be part of everyone's daily routine. Exercise is not just for weight loss but to keep yourself fit and positive towards life challenges. It could be in any form like brisk walking, jogging, working out in gym, yoga or dance. I love walking and I also love yoga. In my school days I used to do yoga and later the habit was completely gone as I moved to higher classes. However, nowadays whenever I get time I love going to park and do brisk walking. 



Recently we have put our daughter for dance classes and there is a yoga class too. My husband noticed it and started inquiring, I was surprised. Later he enrolled my name there and from last 3 months I have joined into power yoga which I am really loving it. It is a strict rule that you should not eat anything heavy at least 2 hours before power yoga. My class is in the evening so after lunch I have to eat something heavy around 4 so that I get the stamina to perform well in my yoga class. Some times I eat sandwich, sometimes healthy salads and one day I tried Oats Porridge and it was good. So often I eat oats porridge with banana which is a healthy option. Oats Porridge is a very good breakfast option for toddlers as well as adults. Lear here how to make Oats Porridge.

Upma

Is your kid /toddler a fussy or picky eater??

Then it is a real problem for you to feed him or her. This is the stage when your toddler starts eating semisolid or solid food instead of liquid. So as a new mother you must be puzzled and keep on thinking what can you give to your kid. And the job becomes tougher when your child is a picky  or fussy eater. Everyday you have to think something new as well as it has to be kid's friendly, i.e. easy to digest as they do not have all the teeth for chewing. Today I am sharing Upma which is tasty as well as nutritious for your toddler and he or she will also enjoy the dish.

Ingredients

Rava/Suji/Semolina - 1 cup
Carrot - finely chopped, 1/2 cup
Beans - finely chopped, 1/3 cup
Onion - finely sliced, 1/2 cup
Bay leaf - 1
Green cardamom - 1
Ghee - 2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Sugar as per taste - 1 tablespoon
Mustard seeds -1/2 teaspoon
Chana dal - 1/2 teaspoon
Refined oil

Procedure

Heat oil in a pan and fry all the vegetables and keep them aside. Now heat ghee in the pan and add bay leaf and green cardamom. You can also add chana dal and mustard seeds for seasoning. You can also add curry leaves and green chilli but I avoided as I was making for my little daughter. Now add rava and roast it till it becomes light brownish. Then add fried vegetables and finally add water and allow it to boil. Add salt and sugar according to your taste buds. Keep on stirring so that rava does not stick to pan. Once the rava is cooked, switch off the gas and garnish with cashew and kismiss. Your fussy toddler would cherish this special dish Upma.

Chikoo Milkshake

Coolers are hit during summer days. Already mercury has crossed 35 degree at many places of India. During summer we all would love to have a full glass of cool drink. Nowadays, most of us prefer carbonated cool drinks, which are not good for health, especially for kids this is not at all safe. When we go out kids also insist us to buy 'gola' (made with ice & colors). These all have zero food value. Today I am sharing a healthy and tasty summer cooler to beat the heat of summer. This summer cooler has goodness of milk and fruit which is healthy for kids as well as adults. 

Chikoo Milkshake

Ingredients

Chikoo - 2 nos, peel the skin and deseed it
Sugar - 5-6 spoon
Boiled & cooled Milk - 1/2 litre
Crushed Ice

Procedure

Take the chikoos and make a smooth paste in mixer. Now put the paste equally in glasses. Add sugar and milk in each glass. Then stir well to mix it. Add crushed ice on top. If your milk is cold you can avoid adding ice. Instead of sugar you can add honey to make it more healthy.
