My Iron Rich recipe: Oats Almonds Cake

Image
 Let me start by declaring that I am not a MasterChef. My wife will vouch for that! But I am a sporadic cook who loves to whip up something on and off. Having said that let me tell you that although I rarely cook, I cook well! Also I try to cook healthy. My cooking teacher is of course my wife.
So today I plan to share with you a favorite recipe of me as well as my family. Oats almond cake. It's a great accompaniment with both tea or coffee. It's not only very healthily delicious but also  rich in iron.

Speaking of Iron rich food, it's indeed sad to see the level of Iron deficiency anaemia in India. Being a surgeon, I am daily ordering for extra units of blood during surgery. Indian women hardly ever have their Haemoglobin levels above 12mg  Also the economic strata of the people seldom plays any role in Iron deficiency. Females of well off families too are found to be iron deficient. Although we can blindly declare that all females in the reproductive age in the lower econ…

Random Essentials from Super99

Image
There are so many malls/ shopping outlets/ websites for specialized things. But when to comes to buying basics or essentials, we don't know where to go. It often happens that we tend to compromise on the quality of basic home items as we don't know where to buy quality products from, However our problems are solved as I have come across Super99 store which stocks almost every item under the roof...from essentials to fancy to specialized items...all of great quality and at unbeatable prices.
To start with I was sent 3 items. 


Flask: Its a thermos flask that would keep liquids warm (for 12 hours) or cold (for 24 hours) The pretty pink colour is surely an eye turner.
Neon Pink Belt: Neon never went out of fashion and this belt is a testament how a touch of punchy neon can escalate the style quotient of our outfit by heaps. Its of very good quality.
Key Holder: This is the ultimate useful accessory for guys. Often we tend to have a bunch of keys...home, cupboard, office, car etc and t…

Global Handwashing Week in Kidzania

Image
Healthy lifestyle starts with clean hands. This is a phrase we must have heard probably thousands of times right from our childhood. And why not? Cleanliness starts with baby steps and washing hands is the foremost step. As children, this is the first thing that we are taught and as adults, we should train our kids for the same. Last week celebrated this basic habit was celebrated at Kidzania with full vigour as it was Global Handwashing Week. We as adults, tend to forget the basic good habits but its our duty to inculcate the best in our children. We should wash our hands before and after every activity. And if it requires cooking or eating, then hands should be washed all the more diligently. Germs spread the most from touching contaminated surfaces and hence its important to get rid of germs every time you touch the handrail or pick up the phone or open the door. Global Handwashing Week was particularly celebrated and followed with full effect in Kidzania, Delhi NCR. For the uninitia…

Here's to a cleaner Delhi, Greener Diwali

Image
I love my Delhi. I have been residing here for the past decade and love it to bits. I feel that Delhi has every potential to become a world city. Where else in India would you find such broad roads, beautiful architecture, oodles of heritage clubbed with the best educational institutes, medical facilities and job opportunities? I feel that Delhi is one of the finest examples of a perfect amalgamation of technology and history. But do we Delhiites deserve this beautiful city? What have we done till now for our city? We dump garbage everywhere, chop down trees, destroy farms and construct buildings there and do nothing positive for the environment. How long is this going to last? We are digging up our graves eventually. And with Diwali just around the corner, our city is at a greater threat. Its all over the news now that sale of crackers are banned in Delhi NCR. And why not! Delhi is amongst the most polluted cities in the world! But what's ironical is that there is no ban on cracker…

RIP Dear Laptop

Image
The moment you choose a girl to marry, a more beautiful prospect comes your way; the moment you buy a gadget, a better one at a lower price gets launched! Its sad but absolutely true! I don't want to sound like an MCP (and neither I am) but we guys have been joking about this forever. We save so much to buy a gadget of our dreams but when we want to resale it, it hardly fetches us anything. Thinking of this, I just remembered a sad saga. I had been saving for quite a long time to buy a laptop. I was in my medical college; so cash was scarce. I planned to buy a Windows Vista laptop (Vista was hot at that time). Also laptops were pretty expensive. I mean the basic 15 inch ones used to cost nothing less than forty thousand. I had laid my eyes on one which was of fifty four thousand. So finally when the day came, I took out all my savings and proudly brought home my trendy laptop with all my pride. It was my baby. It served me well. I never had any qualms about it. Few months later, I m…

My vacation wishlist with Zaful

Image
So I think its not a secret anymore that we are going on a long vacation. The farthest destination of our lives till date. For that I have been scouring for the perfect skinny distressed jeans and am happy that I found one on Zaful. Curating my wardrobe is usually my wife's job but this time I too decided to help her! Since it is a long trip and there are many parts of it, I decided to curate a multipurpose wardrobe. There are going to be city tours, long drives, biking and of course hiking. Each of these require a particular outfit and so these are the items that are in my cart right now.



Camo print shorts: Shorts are a must have be it the beach or going for hiking. And camo print is simply the best.  Jacket: A jacket is a must have as everywhere in the world (barring the tropics) it gets chilly at night. So a stylish coat is necessary.


A gingham shirt: A full sleeve shirt is indispensable I a man's wardrobe and gingham print is so in right now! This black and white one is a cla…
