Eat healthy…

Monday 30 November 2009 | Posted by Kishi | Easy Cooking,Taste

This month has been crazy, sort of not so great for me. Grand dad sick in hospital, too many weddings to attend and a crazy painful stomach! I have started feeling that somewhere just because I am a chef I am not really watching what I am eating.

Watch what you eat...

Watch what you eat...

Overindulgence you see. I dont wanna turn up like the lady in the pic 😉 So I am going to watch what I eat now. Winters vegetables are great. Will go for more salads and soups and forget the shaadi food! Ahh my heart breaks thinking about not trying this and that…and at the same time I know I got to do it.

I have been working on some Christmas goodies for you foodaholics out there. One of the few items that will be available will be fudge with lots of different flavours which will be available through the website. Watch out the space for the upcoming goodies.

I have been bad with blogging and I will probably post some in post date to show what I have read over a period of time. To begin with try the Kanji recipe I saw on face book. Give it a try!

Why am i telling you this recipe..well one its the season second its really healthy!
