Happy Women’s Day

On this International Women’s Day I wish every woman health & happiness!

I have compiled a list of nutritious recipes that meet the dietary requirements of women of all ages; you can click on these images below for their recipes.

For Young Girls: Ebony Sweetmeat is made of black grams that are rich in protein, iron, calcium, magnesium & potassium; protein required for growing children, iron prevents anemia (a condition prevalent among young girls) and other minerals required to strengthen bones.


For Pregnant women: Coriander seeds chutney helps to alleviate nausea & morning sickness.


For Lactating Mothers: These patties are made of banana flowers that are good for lactating mothers.


For Busy Mothers: Meals with Drumstick leaves is ideal for active mothers who should take care of themselves by taking foods that are rich in protein, vitamins  and minerals especially iron & calcium.


For women going through menopause: Soy contains isoflavones, plant estrogens, so you can try this briyani with soy nuggets.


For Grandmothers:  Millet Noodles made of finger millets rich in calcium & iron and is easily digestible as they are steamed.

      I found your blog very informative, I am also totally against wasting food, I feel we have to respect farmers’ produce; should not waste veggies & fruits in the name of decoration, presentation, etc.

        I completely agree! Many people take food for granted without realizing that some people do not even have food. Little do they know, this “expired food” can be used for so many things to make delicious recipes.

        Keep up the great work!

        yes, I was not aware that even expired food can be used. Thanks for all your efforts!
