I usually work until late night and by the time it is 10:00/10:30 PM, I am hungry and always looking for some candy or sugar fix ( not so healthy) to keep me going for another couple of hours. Few weeks ago I stumbled upon a similar recipe of energy snacks with all healthy ingredients and I [...]

Low Calorie Summer Salad with Couscous and Peanuts

After eating not so light meals last couple of days, today I was in no mood to repeat the same pattern. At first I started planning for the week and put some chickpeas in my slow cooker – to be boiled in 4 hours. I thought I could make some chickpea couscous salad for work later. It was almost [...]

With days warming up a bit, I prefer having salads for lunch or as a side (sometimes bigger than a side portion) for dinner. I am big fan of low calorie salsa based Mexican style salads-which one of these days I will put together for my blog as well. However, these days I am experimenting with baby [...]

This is yet another favorite dish that I make when I have leftover rice on hand and (as usual) I am in a hurry to put together a delicious yet healthy meal. This version of Lemon Rice is based on traditional South Indian flavors although I am not sure if I always follow the tradition religiously [...]
