New year resolutions – DOA?


A month back, we celebrated the new year with a lot of pomp. Though, we all say, that resolutions do not really happen, don’t we secretly wish for something? Mine revolved around turning to healthy eating habits and organic food, instead of junk. But healthy food cannot mean bland food. (Fine with me? No ways.) So, featuring a set of brands that have launched healthy tasty snacks, as alternatives for the junk. They strike the chord between nutrition and taste. This is the first of a set of posts.

Ambroto

They are a brand aimed at combining the concepts of a balanced diet and great taste. Theey have a variety of snacks – including chips, nuts, cookies, dry fruits and so on. They have recently launched a “Detox Oats” which is nothing but oats+ dry fruits+ berries. They taste amazing, and will definitely suffice as a meal/snack. All you have to do, is add milk or water ( my case milk and sugar 😛 ) and enjoy your meal. This has a tri-motto of burning fat, purification and regaining strength. The snack tasted yum, and is nothing like bland oats. It also looks so good, that it attracted both my grandmother as well as my nephew! My nephew eating this since it looked “colourful” made the job so easy for my sister 😉 You can check out this product and buy it here.

Wake up trouble?


Hey,

The festive season is in the air, with the new year around the corner. It’s becoming chill day by day, so much that I’ve started ignoring my alarm clock every morning. After a million snoozes, what really inspires me to get up is the thought about my morning ‘filter’ coffee. A sleep walk to the kitchen (sane enough to make a good coffee 😛 ) and the aroma of the coffee, half wakes me up, and the first sip makes me thank my existence. Such is the importance of coffee in my life.

I totally heart coffee ❤

Recently I shifted to a new city (away from family) and so I could not get access to the usually coffee powder that my family used. That was exactly when I found the brand called BeanStalknLeaves which was created by people who shared  a similar love story with coffee. I’ve tried three of their variants and this is my honest feedback about it.

Enjoying a cup of coffee! 🙂

  • Velvet Dew is a not so strong variant of coffee, which is perfect a quick sip when you need a drink after dinner, before leaving for a quick task, the perfect coffee to offer guests, when you aren’t very sure of how strong they like their coffee. It definitely can’t go wrong there.
    My rating : 4/5
    Price : Rs 355 for 250g
  • Shot Gun is a very strong coffee variant (I ❤ this one) which helps my brain wake up in the morning and do my work right. This often goes on my afternoon to-do lists, so that the rest of the tasks on that list get done too! 😛 (win-win situation)
    My rating : 4.5/5
    Price : Rs 335 for 250g
  • Smooth Operator is the mildest variant of the three. Perfect for lazy days, where you don’t have too much to do, and want to chill.
    My rating : 3.5/5
    Price : Rs 295 for 250g

    Beautifully packed, travel friendly.

I’m waiting for more variants from this brand. Visit their official site for more on each of the variants or head to amazon to shop them. You could also gift these to a coffee lover, this festive season and pass on a few smiles. Happy spreading joy 😀 Let me know how you guys start your day. Mine is incomplete without coffee! 🙂

Till the next shot of coffee
