Farro, orzo, riso integrale, grano saraceno, da una parte. Piselli, ceci, fagioli e lenticchie dall'altra. Messi insieme e conditi con una giusta dose di olio extravergine di oliva, costituiscono un piatto che sazia e fa bene all'organismo, proteggendo dall'insorgenza di malattie croniche, cardiovascolari e da alcune forme tumorali. Oltre alle vitamine e a diversi composti bioattivi contenuti in in questi alimenti, buona parte dei meriti sono da ascrivere alle fibre, che pur non essendo digeribili, aumentano infatti il senso di sazietà, regolano la funzionalità intestinale, aiutano a mantenere sotto controllo i livelli di glicemia e colesterolo del sangue e mantengono l'equilibrio della flora batterica intestinale
“As soon as you get engaged, there is all this pressure to lose weight for your “Big Day”. From family and coworkers commenting on what is on your plate to the ads that follow you online, it can make you feel like there is something wrong with you. For me, Define London was a safe space from all that nonsense. The goal isn’t taking up less space in the world, it’s having the strength to carry yourself with confidence in every situation.” - @brendasalinasbaker

for healthy recipes.
1/2 cup chana flour/ besan
¼ inch ginger + 1 green chili – crushed and made into a paste.
1/2 cup water or as required
1/2 tsp oil
a pinch of turmeric powder (haldi)
2 tsp lemon juice – from 1 medium sized lemon
1/2 tsp eno (fruit salt) or baking soda
salt as required
1/4 tsp mustard seeds (rai or sarson)
1/4 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 tsp sesame seeds (safed til)
5 curry leaves (kadi patta)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
2 tbsp water
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves (dhania patta)
1/2 tbsp grated coconut (optional)
Mix all the ingredients mentioned under the list ‘main ingredients’ except for the fruit salt.
The batter has to be slightly thicker than the idli batter.
Keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, add 3-4 cups water in the steamer and heat it.
Grease a pan with oil. Add the eno and stir briskly.
Quickly pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Spread evenly and shake the pan to even out the batter.
Keep the pan in the steamer.
Cover the steamer and steam for approx 18-20 minutes.
We can use an electric steamer.
Check with a toothpick to see the doneness and if the toothpick comes out clean, then the dhokla is ready.
Remove the dhokla and allow to cool for 5-6 minutes.
You can temper directly or un-mould the dhokla carefully in a serving plate.

The face you make when you thought class was canceled but that’s actually next week so you attend class on a day when you were mentally prepared not to have class and now your day is all out of wack. LOL am I making this up or did this actually happen to me today? You’ll never know 🤪
Hehe well I thought this was a cute lil pic and I’ve been inspired by @kihmberlie
(SO MUCH) to take some more of my own pics cause I don’t have someone on hand all the time to take them for me. So it’s been fun playing with the self timer 😝 I also just really love photography in general so I love taking pics of other people too, nothing professional but if you need a quick pic, I got you 😉 have a happy Tuesday 🌻
