My mornings are not complete without a bowl of steamy hot oatmeal, spiced with cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger–spices commonly found in Masala Chai. Arvinda’s Chai Masala is the perfect complement to oatmeal which can handle these aromatic and warming spices.
I can’t imagine a cold breakfast in the winter months!

I’m eating mangoes by the case these days. The soft and sweet texture makes it a great breakfast food as it’s filling, nourishing and nutritionally rich with vitamins A and C, beta carotene and a good source of fibre. They make a great snack too.
The last case I bought, the mangoes were completely unripe. Watching and waiting for my mangoes to ripen was frustrating since I’m in the routine of having mangoes almost daily. So I turned these green mangoes into a pickle, perfect as a side to an Indian vegetarian meal.
Toronto’s historic Evergreen Brickworks is a community environmental centre, a hub of social innovation and green design, promoting a sustainable lifestyle.
Tourists visiting Toronto during the summer months have to make a pit stop at the Evergreen Brickworks Farmers’ Market on a Saturday. In 2010, Evergreen Brickworks was named one of the top 10 geotourism destinations in the world by National Geographic.
The atmosphere and plethora of amazing fresh, local and organic produce and artisan products inspires us to cook and create, engage and learn, and leave with a feel-good, fuzzy feeling about the great things happening in this city.
This is a ‘must-do’ on any foodie’s list, especially if visiting Toronto for the first time!

Dear green lentils…where have you been all my life?!
In India, we consume over 60 varieties of lentils and beans ranging from channa dal, chick peas, urid dal, masoor dal, moong beans to kidney beans.
Variety is definitely the spice of life! You can have a different dal cooked in its own unique way and never feel bored with this amazing protein source.

So they say it takes 21 days to make a new habit (or break an old one!). With the arrival of spring comes a time of renewal, rejuvenation and restoration after the winter months of hibernation–and a perfect time to wake up and wash away some old habits that could be dragging us down!
As we’re into the month of April, this is also a time we can take positive actions to make our ‘environmental footprints’ smaller as Earth Day approaches. This year, Earth Day Canada is challenging Canadians to Take It Up. Just say yes to taking up a new challenge and do your part. It’s the challenges that are our greatest motivators for change and for pushing our boundaries further! They also keep life fun!
