Family Bonding- Lock down

Hello Readers,

We all are going through tough times and me and my team are constantly praying that we all get out of this really soon. Social distancing is the new normal and lets all follow this.

We are sure you all are using this lock down in best way possible. Everything is changed like now we all are working from home, ordering groceries online but most important is we are doing all household chores on our own. This is the right time to support each other so only female members at home are not doing household chores.

Male members can help in several ways like ordering important groceries online, cooking, washing utensil and most important is washing clothes. I get total support from male members at my home in washing clothes.

We use Ariel detergent at home and it has been the norm for ages. We buy the bigger pack as its more reasonable. Just put up 2 scoops of detergent powder in the washing machine. Usually it takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the mode I select.
After this, male members at home also help to dry the clothes in sunlight.
After clothes are dry, we get them inside, fold them neatly and stack it up in our wardrobes.
Don’t be shame and #ShareTheLaundry and when you do that you will realize that #ShareChoresMultiplyLove 🙂
Before we say bye, have a look at this beautiful video and see how you can #ShareTheLaundry

I will #ShareTheLoad and help in household chores in association with Ariel India and BlogAdda
In this stressful time, it is very important to remember that, as cheesy as it sounds, everyone is in this together. While family can seem a little too overbearing at times, it should be seen as something positive because after all, things would be much more boring if everyone had to quarantine alone!
Stay safe,

Energy Efficient: Soy Protein

Hello Foodies!

We all know how important it is to stay healthy and eat good food. Today we are back with this blog to discuss how one can replace milk, eggs and meat with soy protein diet.

soymilk3 (1)

Soy is a good alternative protein for adults. It also plays important role for healthy heart. Soya is rich in nutrients like PUFAs (poly-unsaturated fatty acids). They are amazing for heart health. They have good potential to lower blood cholesterol. Soy being a good source of omega-3, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants make it a complete heart healthy food.

Why Soy Protein?

Soy protein is the only commercially-viable plant protein that has been recognized as a complete, high-quality source of protein.  Soy protein’s quality ranks up there with milk, egg and other animal-based sources and interestingly, it has a low carbon footprint. Soy is very efficient to produce, requiring less water, energy and land than animal-based proteins like milk and meat. Consuming a vegan or vegetarian diet, rich in soy protein, is an excellent way to reduce your impact on planet, not just greenhouse gases, but, land and water use.

Soy milk is definitely the best alternative to normal milk. Soy milk has been the most popular non-dairy substitute for decades because its nutrition profile closely resembles that of cow’s milk.  Soy milk offers about 7 grams of protein per cup, compared to cow milk’s 8 grams per cup. Most, but not all, brands are fortified with calcium and vitamin D, so be sure to look at the nutrition label to find these nutrient values. Soy milk comes in flavored varieties, such as vanilla, and also comes in lighter and lower-calorie versions.

Staycation at Phuvaree Resort, Phuket

The toughest part in planning an abroad trip is the accommodation as we all know how crucial part our accommodation or stay plays during any of our trips , whether short or long, hills or beaches , desert or forest etc all we need a comfortable stay for rest .

I visited phuket earlier this month and stayed at property called Phuvaree Resort and believe me guys i was stunned by the beauty of this resort . The resort is huge in space with some great clean and comfortable rooms . I was welcomed in a very warm way by some well mannered staff and a great refreshing welcome drink .

The swimming pool of this resort was the highlight for sure as it offers crystal clear water for some great refreshing time .

The property is located nearby to the evergreen bangla market i.e WALKING STREET OF PHUKET and you can go with your legs if weather permits (during my time it was very hot and humid so i preferred tuk tuk) .

The rooms here are good in space and offers a lot like a balcony , almirah with safe , a clean wash room and obviously a comfy bed with 24 hrs helpline phone . The interiors of the room were eye catching and everything was best as it can get . The room service was super quick and withing minutes of call someone was there at the assistance .

The resort also offer a stunning poolside restaurant CHOMVAREE for some great food and drinks with an awesome view . The breakfast also being served here and a huge variety was there to eat from and everything was fresh and delicous .

A gym was also there for the fitness freaks (though i am not the one) with a loads of exercise machines and equipment and a trainer .

The resort has also maintained the natural greenery with perfection and it seriously looks great .

I would the staff , the management and everyone who is working in this resort is giving his/her 100 percent as i have not experienced anything weird in my 2 nights stay . The cost per night is very reasonable say around INR 4500 with breakfast . Most of the staff understands English which is also a plus point .

The lady at the reception was so helpful in planning our outings in PHUKET and once she even arranged a taxi for us without any hesitation.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILIES OR COUPLES TO STAY HERE WHENEVER YOU  VISIT IN PHUKET .

I would give full marks to everything here and everyone who is taking care of the property and the customers.

Soy Protein Is Heart Healthy For Adults

Hello Foodies!

We all know how important it is to stay healthy and eat good food. Today we are back with this blog to discuss about the importance of Soy Protein for Adults.

Soy Protein 2soymilk3 (1)

Soy is a good alternative protein for adults. It also plays important role for healthy heart. Soya is rich in nutrients like PUFAs (poly-unsaturated fatty acids). They are amazing for heart health. They have good potential to lower blood cholesterol. Soy being a good source of omega-3, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants make it a complete heart healthy food.

Why Soy Protein?

-Healthy Protein and Fiber

Soy foods contain high levels of healthy protein and fiber. Fiber helps to reduce bad cholesterol. Plus, soy is a much better source of protein for your heart than animal-derived foods that are rich in saturated fats.

– Soyfoods Can Lower Your Bad Cholesterol

Soyfoods are a tasty way to lower your bad cholesterol and increase your good cholesterol. Soyfoods also include dietary fiber, high quality protein, iron, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

Soyfoods Can Replace Less Healthy Foods
Soyfoods are a source of high-quality protein and, unlike many other sources of high-quality protein, soyfoods are low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free
So try a soy burger and you won’t be able to tell the difference, but your heart will! 😛

Wait no more and switch to soya because- “Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings.”- Publilius Syrus
