๐ŸฏHONEY AND CINNAMON REMEDY๐Ÿฏ

Honey and cinnamon combined together undoubtedly sounds so interesting. You will be surprised to see the numerous benefits of this deadly combo!! All these are tried and tested remedies and will surely give you positive results.

๐Ÿ’HAIR LOSS: Girls do we have your attention ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Apply a paste of hot olive oil, a tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath, leave it for 15 min and wash.Using this special paste as a topical treatment helps increase the blood circulation in your scalp, which results in more hair growth.

๐Ÿ’COMMON COLD: This one has our attention for sure. The number of times Parul used to have cold is not even funny ๐Ÿ˜ช And so found this one.
When it comes to common cold, we will try just about anything when we are sick. Next time when you are down you might want to try this.Make a glass of lukewarm honey water mixed with a pinch of cinnamon powder to help boost your immune system during the cold season. It is also helpful in clearing the sinuses.

๐Ÿ’ARTHRITIS: Apply a paste made of the two ingredients on the affected part of the body and massage slowly. Drinking tea with honey and cinnamon daily can also help relieve pain and stiffness in joints.

๐Ÿ’HELPS REDUCE CHOLESTEROL: Both honey and cinnamon have the ability to lower the cholesterol level on their own. However when you combine them it just doubles the effect.Apply honey and cinnamon powder on bread instead of using jam or butter and eat it regularly for breakfast. And trust us it tastes really really good. It is believed that in the long run, this can help prevent blockages in blood vessels, heart attacks and hypercholesterolemia.

Granny’s Legendary Tips :

Let’s face the sun people โ˜€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Tanning is one of the major problems during summer, and most people try to find a quick solution to it by using chemical laden bleach or opting from cosmetic peeling procedures. But these quick solutions have several side effects and cause severe damage to the skin. Therefore, you should know how to protect your skin from burning summer sun with simple home remedies that also function as natural remedy for pimple and acne removal.

๐Ÿ’Lemon and Aloe Vera Face Pack

Lemon is one of the best citrus fruits that have rich medicinal and cosmetic benefits. No doubt, it is widely used in various skin and hair care remedies as well as skin care products. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and an antioxidant. It is rich in vitamin C, and the intake of lemon juice would fetch you a glowing skin. Aloe Vera on the other side is a short stemmed succulent plant that produces six antiseptics.
All you need to do is juice a lemon and besides that also mash the aloe vera leaves. Mix them properly until an aromatic paste is formed. Apply this onto the tanned area of the skin and allow it to dry. You need to apply this paste twice or thrice a day to cleanse and prevent your skin from getting tanned from time-to-time. This is also an effective cure for dark circles around eyes.

๐Ÿ’Turmeric Powder, Yogurt and Honey Face Pack

Turmeric powder is the basic common ingredient in every kitchen and is best known antiseptic/anti- bacterial agent. It is used in relieving the pain and as a disinfectant that is usually caused due to cuts and burns. Turmeric is also an age old home remedy that has been used in Ayurveda to treat various skin diseases. Yogurt is a dairy product just as curd and it has a gel like texture. Honey, a sweetening agent can be considered as one of the best natural moisturizing agents that helps skin retain its supple and elastic nature. It is used in various cosmetic preparations and is an antioxidant that helps in healing wounds.

Make a thick paste by mixing all the three ingredients well. Apply this pack on the dried skin and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Later, rinse it off with cold water. This pack helps in moisturizing and radiating your skin under the dire circumstances.

๐Ÿ’Sandal wood and Rosewater Face Pack

Sandalwood has rich benefits especially when it comes to accomplishing a fairer skin. It is used in the treatments of acne and skin aging. The soothing and cooling properties of sandalwood make it the perfect remedy for relieving sun tan and severe sunburn. Rose water is one of the best beauty products and is used in aroma therapies. It can be used as a cleanser, toner and leaves you with a refreshing feeling. The combination of sandalwood and rose water makes this pack the perfect natural remedy for sun tan removal in a gentle and nourishing way.

Make a thick paste of white or red sandalwood powder and rosewater and apply it to face. Wait for 20 minutes and allow it to dry. After this wash it with cold water and always use a soft towel to clean up your washed face. This paste relieves you from sun burns and other suntan effects

๐Ÿ’Banana & Milk

Mash up a banana, add some milk, mix them together to create a paste, and apply to your face for 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water and ta-da! Bananaโ€™s are rich in Vitamin A, B, and E, which are proven to be anti-aging wonders. Do refrain though from eating your maskโ€ฆ letโ€™s just try and keep it on your face!

๐Ÿ’Drink All Day๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Donโ€™t forget the most critical aspect of achieving glowing skin: WATER. There is no better way to get rid of all the toxins in your body, so drink up and drink responsibly.

Take good care

Review – Pita Pit

1

Hello friends. Its been really really longโ€ฆ. Hope you missed us. we surely missed writing and sharing a post with you all. Whatโ€™s excitingโ€ฆ well lots of things in store. Was out for a vacation to US. oh what a trip…..along with good time came our way some very interesting food places. That was obvious. Right!!! Once a foodie always a foodie. But foodie friends before we get to our travel post, today’s post is about a place in your reach. Before leaving for the vacation one of my foodie friends invited over for a quickie brunch at Pitas Pit, GK ๐Ÿ™‚

So let me begin by Miss Foodies take on it. So as I walked up the stairs a cutie poster with a Pita Pete caught my eye that welcomes all those coming to Pita Pit. Though located in a super busy market of GK 1, place for shopaholics, you enter into this refreshing, green and calm world of Pitas ๐Ÿ™‚ Have to say the international chain Pita Pit has arrived with a bang.ย  Itโ€™s a good place to re energize yourselves after shopping for some more.. Lolโ€ฆ.. But truly talking of its Ambiance, I believe I can go gaga over the same.ย  The ambiance too along with the foodย  is living upto its punch line โ€œEating healthy, thinking freshโ€ The lay out is done amazingly well. The addition of fresh bamboos and money plants undoubtedly gives a green earthen and positive feel to the entire place. This eating healthy funda is really getting people check their calories in take big time. But have to say most of theย  similar chains in just paying attention to the food often forget or ignore the ambiance. What I truly loved about this Pita pit is how carefully it has been designed , so calm and composed in contrary to its location. Special mention to the people behind creating this ambiance is well deserved. Positive and green ambiance makes you feel so relaxed that you anyways enjoy fresh and light meal. Hope most of you will agree.

Coming down to what they have in store for your palate. Friends Pita Pit is a store of endless possibilities. They have sandwiches fit for a variety of meals, be it breakfast, light hunger lunch to loaded dinner.ย  Also the sandwiches can be personalised to your palate. They have got normal pitas, wheat pita’s with sizes to choose from. They have varieties in store both for veggies and non including toasties, salads, beverages, sides, fresh juices and desserts. The dips, dressings and interesting spreads really make the meal more exciting. ย (What we had) we began with pitas cold coffee. It is undoubtedly amazing . I m quiet a choosy when it comes to cold coffees. In fact I personally avoid cold coffee outside for most of them make it unreasonably bitter. So was little hesitant to order but it was simply worth it. Then came our pita toasties. Fresh Paneer, baked potato and ham and pepperoni for my non veggie friends. The pita was super fresh ,light and nice. The paneer was more interesting as far as my spicy taste buds are concerned. I loved it. The potato had that spice missing for me but certainly the interesting dips on the side made up for it. But I have to mention that my non veggie friends seemed to be enjoying every bit of it. Their facial and satiating expressions said it allโ€ฆ.delicious, juicy and awesome.

Then called for falafel wrap along with fresh Pineapple juice. This remained a win win too. The wrap along with hummus and their secret sauce surely left us satiating. Then came the garden salad,ย we seemed to be going reversed. Lolโ€ฆ mood calls for it, I guess. I really likes the salad, though a little more dressing could have made it just perfect but loved the way of doing the cheese in the salad. It made it delicious and interesting.

6

Coming down to desserts. They have a good variety in there too including carrot bran muffin, cinnamon cake loaf and more. Tiramisu is delicious and you feel like calling for more. Rest we left to be tried on next visit. Friends Service is pretty good too and the staff is sweet. They really make an effort to make your sandwich interesting if you find something missing. Talking of price ,it is fresh and healthy eating without paying much, pretty light on the pocket.

7

Do we recommend – Yes without any doubt. For a food chain like this the ambiance will leave you satiated to the fullest along with the food and being so light on pocket will make you just enjoy it. So go refresh yourselves with Pita pit and stay healthy!!!

Review- The Chatter House

11

Hello foodie friends. Hope you all having a good time. So are we ๐Ÿ™‚ we are actually doing justice to our blogs name “Miss Foodies” We are so hogging these days… God!!! and then we complain we are gaining inches..lol ๐Ÿ™‚ But we kind of love it.
So you know whats new in our post today. Well just a week back we went for a bloggers meet to this place called “Chatter House”. Nice name.. right!!! The name says it all I guess.. Chat, gossip over drinks and food ๐Ÿ™‚
Its a gastropub launched in september 2013. The interiors match the name with the exposed brick walls with slogans and posters along with an open bar and comfortable seating style.

8

They also have an outside area with an al fresco dining. Holds a huge variety of veg, non veg ,mocktails and cocktails. In fact just few months back as they got their liquor licence they are trying to implement new drinks ๐Ÿ™‚ I
m sure that makes some of your eyes go bigger reading this. lol….. But yes thats really true about this place. Though that doesn’t excite us much because may be we have surpassed the age of drinks excitement.. haha.. But yes what excites us and what we really search for in newer places like these is something different on the menu. and we surely succeeded in finding the same ๐Ÿ™‚

3
So let me begin with what made our meal at Chatter House. A tempting mocktail with a mix of guava, lemonade and spices named Amrood Chaat. Pretty apt and tempting name too. This was a total win win for us and surely a must try. Also as summers are rolling in it will be pretty refreshing.

2
There are couple of other mocktails too. Amrood chat really stands out in taste and is refreshing. Another one on list that we enjoyed too is meant for Apple lovers and is called the Adams Apple.Talking of cocktails, yes definitely they are trying their hand on creating a huge variety. Few among the whole lot being Kafir and saffron, jagberry, kiwi vasabi…. The list goes on and on.But as we mentioned we surpassed that age but still crowds favourite seemed to be Jagberry ๐Ÿ™‚ Are we sounding old…nooo ๐Ÿ™‚

4
Coming to food we were served some fab dishes. The chef specially introduced us with a platter of Broccoli and cheese nuggets. A newer variety which they are planning to add to their menu soon. Truly they were soft and meant for broccoli lovers like us ๐Ÿ™‚ For all those like us who always enjoy broccoli in some form or the other its a must try. We did appreciate the chefs creation and shared that the idea to add these to the menu was pretty awesome.

6

Then came the Veg platter which definitely looked good as you can see ๐Ÿ™‚ It had hummus, baba ghanoush, pita bread, feta stuffed crispy mushrooms (pretty good) and paneer tikka . The cheese was done well and so were the dips. We also had onion and potato croquettes. The dip of this platter again was done well along with potato croquettes. Potato croquettes were soft with right set of flavour. They definitely tasted better over onion rings.

7

5
Then came quite a dish of the day- Pizza. Freshly baked thin crust pizza with right amount of toppings and cheese was done very well. super yummy ๐Ÿ˜‰ Trust us friends we are big time pizza lovers and so can say their pizzas are done pretty well and a must to be ordered when you visit the place. There is quite a variety of pizzas on the menu and all of them are worth trying ๐Ÿ™‚
Beyond these there is lots in main course too again for both veggies and Non ๐Ÿ™‚ . We had to rush somewhere so could not try our taste buds on that but surely once we go back ๐Ÿ™‚
All in all the location of Chatter House is a plus for located in Epicura food mall in Nehru Place,quiet becoming a foodie place in Delhi, but also a bit of minus for a lot of upcoming eating joints in vicinity. Pretty young place and surely a best fit for those who love to chat with their friends over a drink as undoubtedly they have an elaborate drinks menu. Mocktails specially amrood Chaat is a must try. Food is decent with Pizza , Veg Platter and broccoli cheese nuggets being a win win for us. Reasonably priced with good quantity portions.

Good Deed Memory Wall

final wall

Hi foodie friends. Hope you are all doing good. Today we are here to share not a recipe, but our experience with the activity which we did this new years ,we called itย  ‘Feed the needy’.

Foodie friends if we be honest with you,we were a bit nervous about the kind of response that we would get But then things done with all the right intention always give us fruitful results.

So here is our Miss foodies good deed memory wall. Two of of our foodie friends supporting us on same shared their experience and beautiful pics. They requested us to keep their names a secret and so we are not sharing it with all you guys. We sincerely thank them for being a part of this drive and we simply loved the pics which they sent us. This shows the special connection which food has and that it can bring a smile on so many faces if shared at the right place at the right time.

Friends we too did the same activity and we can tell you that it was surely one of the most wonderful feelings that can be!! That day we realized how satisfying it was to feed a hungry person.Seeing that smile and the satisfaction on those kid’s faces made it all the more special.Their eyes were gleaming with joy and the happiness that they felt shone brightly on their faces.We always talk about doing a good selfless deed, but it is only when we actually do it do we realize how gratifying it feels andย  that there are so many small things that we can do to bring a smile on the faces of those who are less privileged than us.

This was a truly overwhelming experience for us. We are sure you will be able to understand how we felt when you look at the photographs which we have shared on the Memory wall.

So friends send us your experiences and clicks.Let us share it with all our foodie friends and you never know,it might just prove to be that little push for our lazy foodie friends to get up and join the initiative ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Trust us when we say that it is the best feeling in the world. Though we insist and know that if you do it once you shall probably think of making it a practice and finding time maybe once in a month or a fortnight to cook for someone in need ๐Ÿ™‚

( For details connect with our last post )

Stay connected for our next recipe.

Hope to see your click next on our wall ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers

Merry Christmas

C

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a Happy New Year ๐Ÿ™‚

Foodies we love this time of the year where we are stepping into a new beginning with new revolutions hoping all good for everyone around us ๐Ÿ™‚ So here’s our best wishes for all of you for Christmas and for stepping happily into the new year.

Talking of Christmas reminds us of so many childhood stories about Santa ๐Ÿ™‚ We as kids and till date believe in the fact that Santa definitely comes and fulfill ones sweet little wishes ๐Ÿ™‚ That reminds me that this time we did a fun activity named Christmas Surprise for our Delhi foodie friends ๐Ÿ™‚ where we asked them to make a creative dessertful wish this Christmas and who knows the best wish could be fulfilled by our very own Santa at miss foodies ๐Ÿ™‚ The response was fun and we got couple of requests. So we might just surprise some one this Christmas satisfying their sweet tooth ๐Ÿ˜‰

Foodies since childhood Sakshi and I have been very fond of winters and Christmas time ๐Ÿ™‚ The Santa story telling by mom and getting new gifts gave us all the reasons to enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰ I remember since I was a kid to make me believe in good things happen and that Santa does come she always used to keep something or the other under my pillow when I was far asleep on 25thย night ๐Ÿ™‚ From chocolates to barbies to anything I really looked forward to ๐Ÿ™‚ As a kid I wondered how is that possible but used to be happy with anything and everything I got because belief was more than anything that mattered. Years passed and of course I realized that my Mom was my Santa ๐Ÿ™‚ In fact till a year back she did the same. Now that I m married I should be better asking my better half to be my Santa ๐Ÿ˜‰ lolโ€ฆ. But never the less Mom will surely keep my Christmas present and I will get it as soon as I visit home ๐Ÿ™‚ ye yeโ€ฆI am excited ๐Ÿ™‚ Foodies the gist is that yes Santa is there every Christmasย  to bless a shower of happiness around us. The point is at times some one is Santa for us and at times we can be a Santa for others ๐Ÿ™‚ Like we are surprising some of our Delhi friends this year ๐Ÿ™‚ Well thatโ€™s a fun bit but otherwise we have plans to give away some warm clothes to little needy kids around and see a smile on their face. So I want to be a Santa for them to make some believe that good things happen ๐Ÿ™‚

On that note foodie friends we request you all to be someones Santa this year. For your dear ones and for some whom you may not know but you may be a reason to bring a smile on their faces this Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚ Believe and make others believe that Santa will come with lots and lots of love ,happiness and best wishes.

Now if you all are wondering what has Miss Foodies Santa got for all of you then let me tell you โ€ฆ.. We are also holidaying like you all.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We just want to wish you a Merry Xmas and a very happy and prosperous new year. May this Christmas fulfills all your desires and whatever you wish for comes true to you.

So foodie friends, put on your Christmas hats and write in to us your best preparation this holiday season ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy!!!
