Explore Local

In the virtual world now a days , it’s still imp to have real and local friends . You can’t go out for lunch with virtual friends, can you?

It’s imp to have local friends , local activities, everything local around you. If one wants to learn yoga , doesn’t need to go anywhere. There are plenty of yoga classes every where . Find something near you that appeals to you. I have learned and continue to learn so many things just from friends around me . Everyone is good at something. It’s your willingness to try, learn something new. People seem to be stuck in virtual world and don’t see what’s coming their way around them.

And if you like to do something like hiking, walking , running or anything get your friends together and start it provided you have local friends.

In short , Explore local . Everything that we need to learn is around us. Have some friends and you will have fun !

Enjoy!

PS: Picture is of local mountain that i hike with local friends.

Beetroot Before Hike

Are you into hiking or running and would like to feel little better , more energetic? Well, try beetroot. There’s some research also done on it.

My personal experience is when I eat beetroot night before hike , I do little better. I just boil beetroot , sprinkle some salt and lemon juice and eat it like a salad on the side .

Try it yourself and see if you feel better . There’s nothing to lose here.

Enjoy!

Steamed Orange

Steamed orange is a Chinese remedy for cough google says. It tasted so good that you can eat any day. Try if it appeals to you. Here’s how you do it.

  • Soak orange in salted water for 15 mins and then rinse.
  • Cut the top little bit.
  • Scrape surface little bit and sprinkle salt. Try to push salt in. Be careful with salt else it will become to salty.
  • Put the top back and steam for 15-20 mins.
  • Let it cool little bit and remove skin. Take the pulp and mix that water from the bowl.
  • Nice hot bowl of orange and it looks to pretty.
  • I think adding little ginger before steaming and some honey after it’s steamed will make it very tasty dessert.
  • Try it out with that orange sitting on the counter.
  • Enjoy !

Left Over Restaurant Rice

If you are in restaurant business, you should know how to serve food . At Indian restaurants, they give pile of white rice and if it’s take out, curry portion is so small. How do you expect ppl to eat plain white rice ? Is that how they eat at home ? And then ppl end up throwing away rice. Why waste all that rice ?

I generally tell servers to give me little rice and no rice if I am not gonna eat it . Y’day I ordered take out and then to my horror so much white rice . I decided to keep it and then made vegetable fried rice .

I don’t like throwing away the food but if it’s not good , throw it away . Use your own judgement. I throw rotten vegetables in garden for worms . They are no good for my stomach.

What steps you take to not waste food ?

Enjoy!

Get A Life

After work, I stopped by at a grocery store and this store was on the way to home so I always went there and so knew owner . He told me something very interesting that day . He said “he puts out vegetables that’s going bad on sale on a certain day and all this ppl who come to buy , come in luxury cars. Why don’t they spend money on buying fresh vegetables? ” Well, he had a point .

People invest in things , not in life. Invest in life , what is important. Good food is investing in health. If you invest in health then you will be able to do things you enjoy in life . Aging cannot be stopped but we can still work on maintenance.
