Kiwi for Sleep?

Kiwi has many health benefits just like any other fruits, veggies. 1 of them is promote sleep according to research . Recently I bought whole pack of kiwi and have been eating 1 a day. Well , they were so good and have to finish them.

I did notice difference in sleep. Not that I had issue sleeping but still I did notice and thought may be due to kiwi .

Well, something you can try without harm and experiment. If this appeals to you , try it out. I let kiwi sit for few days on counter to ripen.

Gluten Free Halwa

Rajgira or Amranth flour is gluten free and rich in calcium. We use it during fasting days . It’s very quick to make. If you like to include different grain , seeds in diet then try this . If you are Indian , this is a good sweet to break the wheat , rice routine .

Recipe is simple. You can use coconut oil or ghee or unsalted butter . Traditionally we make it using ghee.

For 1 cup flour , use 1/3 cup ghee and 1/2 cup sugar. I use raw sugar. And 2 cup warm or boiling water .

Heat ghee , roast flour for few minutes until you smell it or color is changed little bit.

Add water and it will be quickly absorbed,

Add sugar and cook for a minute or two.

Garnish with cardamom powder, nuts if you like.

Eat warm. So make, eat and be done . No storing. Make just enough. You can just have this as a meal lunch or dinner.

Roasted Chestnuts

Hot from oven, chestnuts taste so good. If you have never tried , try at least once. It’s hard to put that cross before roasting but so worth it at least once .

Roast for 15-20 minutes at 400-425 degree Fahrenheit after putting cross on it. Make sure cut is deep enough.
