8 Easy strategies that I use to get my kids to eat healthy

I understand that eating healthy and nutritious is not something you can just preach and get results instantly. It’s a journey you take along with your family towards building healthy eating habits. It needs conscious, sensible and sound decision making from the parents to inculcate a life-long good eating habit in their kids. My husband…

Welcome To My Farm

Finally! We are ready to have people over at our farm. Never in our wildest imagination did we visualise this day to arrive so soon. And yet, here we are! Ready to embrace something we have never done before. The date was decided on a whim as we have been contemplating this for quite some…

Are we chasing a cheap dream?

Have you ever wondered why home-grown/ homemade/ handmade/ handcrafted… is always expensive, and difficult to source? And all the while, their cheaper counterparts are readily available in abundance, at every nook and cranny of the city. It’s the marketing of such dubious products that prey on our time-constraint and need for convenience. They know that…

August Reflections – #GratitudeCircle

Well, this is the first time I am writing a gratitude list. August took me on a roller-coaster ride; lots of reasons to be grateful for and some very challenging instances that eventually made me stronger; but in all, it was a very important month that saw soaring highs and plunging lows in equal measure….
