Healthier Breakfast – Chicken and Mushroom Toast

17 May

Sometimes it is very confusing what to have for breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day. So I usually try to make it healthy and nutritious. Different ideas as always welcomed. I liked about this toast was firstly it was quick, also tasteful and secondly, I could make another dish out of it (mushroom croquettes).

It is always easier to make your breakfast healthy. There are a few easy tips:

  1. If you eating fruits, avoid peeling them. They add to your roughage.
  2. Instead of having plain milk, add breakfast cereals to it or just make a fruit smoothie.
  3. Add an egg to your diet.
  4. Eat almonds in the morning. They give energy and good source to improve memory.
  5. Substitute white bread with a multigrain bread or a wholewheat bread
  6. Add salad leaves to your sandwich.

Republic Day Special: Trio Sandwiches

29 Jan

This thursday was the Republic Day so it was a Holiday! Yay! It’s when JS returned from his trip to Hong-Kong. I really missed him. So thursday I was spending most of my time with him. Also, enjoying all my presents. 🙂

India celebrates its Republic Day on the 26th January every year. It is celebrated as India got its constitution on this day. There is an amazing parade at the India Gate in New Delhi to celebrate the event. If you haven’t seen one, you must watch it live in the grounds or on TV. India’s diversity and richness in the culture shows in the parade.

My mum prepared this sandwich for our tiffin. This always reminds of the Indian flag colors. So I decided to prepare it for this Republic Day breakfast. This is soft sandwich and inclusive of yummy chutney in it!
