When life gives you lemons, bake a lil’ something! (Vegan Special)

I’ve brought to you today a very healthy vegan version of a much loved lemon dessert … Lemon bars!

MASALA LEMONADE – A SHORT STORY

Arriving in India for the first time, I was offered a ‘masala lemonade’.  What an odd combination of spicy, bitter and sweet, I thought, something I had never seen before in Europe, but somehow upon tasting, worked.

I perused life in India in that first ever week how one may observe a kids science experiment – intrigued at all the colours, smells and sounds, but warily keeping a safe distance!

Temples sang, rickshaws buzzed, sari’s swirled.

My heart began to crack open.

As my time developed, I remembered back to that lemonade, and I realised that the vast array of life on show here in India, is directly reminiscent of that drink combination, and the reality for each one of us, sweet… and spicy.

3 NY resolutions you’ll actually keep

Keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions can be a b*T#h, but these goals are actually achievable!

 

Instead of “losing weight” …

1. Serving something green with every meal.

It’s much easier to add something nutritious to your plate than it is to restrict what you eat.

 

Instead of “spend more time with family & friends” …

2. Get in touch with an old friend.

Start off the year by calling or email an old friend to let them know you’re thinking of them.

 

Instead of “get organised” …

3. Buy a planner.

Get yourself a good old-fashioned planner, it will help you keep all your ducks in a row.
