Chicken Karahi

Chicken Karahi

Chicken Karahi may be by far the most popular dish to come out of The Subcontinent.

Khao Suey

Khao Suey

Ok so this recipe is a long time coming! I have been meaning to post it for a while since I make it often enough. I just never got around to it but a comment I made on Instagram about sharing Khao Suey with friends sparked so much interest that I decided it was time to share my recipe.

Black Bean Quinoa Bowl

Black Bean Quinoa Bowl

Have you tried quinoa yet? Or tried having quinoa in a bowl? Well I did, not that I haven’t had quinoa before but I am just loving eating everything in a bowl! This one was extremely delicious and totally hit the spot.

I was in Miami for a conference through my  school, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. It was over the weekend and for lunch my friends and I decided to get some tacos a bunch of our other Health Coach friends had recommended. While traveling it is often hard to find  good, healthy, gluten free food but we did  at https://www.taquizatacos.com/menu.htm and it was super delicious too!

How To Pack A Healthy and Wholesome Lunch like a Pro!

Greetings Friends!

How has your summer been? Busy? Mine sure has been. We kicked off the break by getting our spiritual high since Ramadan fell right at the start of summer this year. Then there was travel and spending time with family. We made a trip to Pakistan again this year. It was a lot of fun as always and it was tough for me to return home. I am always so sad to leave loved ones!

We are back home winding down summer and gearing up for the school year ahead! Whether you start the school year late August or early September, this post here is to help you pack lunch like an expert!

How prepared are you to send the kids off with healthy, nutritious lunch? If your answer is “NOT SO MUCH” don’t fret, I’ve got your back!

Chicken Kofta Curry

Chicken Kofta Curry

Ok guys so today I have a super simple recipe for you! It is something you can whip up on a week night and transform it into something special. Growing up, I don’t remember having Koftas (meatballs in curry) all that often, possibly because of the labor involved in cooking them. It was always something we ate at dinner parties and on special occasions.

Quick and Easy Egg Curry

Quick and Easy Egg Curry

Known as Cut, this dish is a pretty popular staple in Hyderabadi cuisine. But you know what I like about it? That it’s super easy and super quick. I just love that!

Adding Boiled eggs makes this a hearty main dish rather than a side. And if you want to bring it up a notch, add koftas (meatballs)! Since we were doing meatless this Monday, I decided to leave out the meat.
