My Health, My way - a new series at Sizzling Tastebuds, and guesthosting schedule

Given the frenetic lifestyles we have, its often a compromise - despite serious attempts - to eat healthy food : a balanced diet that has all the portions of essential minerals and vitamins that nature offers to us, in a form thats not too modified from its original form 

Like my family, I am sure all my readers out there (especially moms) strive to give that perfect meal to their family. In that process, their own health gets compromised, at least to an extent. Given that the body repairs itself beautifully, but over the years the damage is too late to correct.

Which is exactly the reason this new eating series is launched : My Health, My Way -  to focus on each nutrient individually (calcium, carbs, proteins etc) and adopt healthy living as a lifestyle rather than by accident (or compulsion). Indian food by itself is so rich in nutrients, lets discover all that and more in a series of healthy living series . 


Starting this month, there are a series of blogger friends who are hosting this series at their blogs, the first of which is Calcium Rich recipes which kick starts on 16th June at PJ's blog, Its a month long event, and further details can be had at her post.

The following is the guest hosting schedule. If you are interested to host any month's event (that are not filled yet), drop me a line at momchef77@gmail.com. For guest hosting, the only condition is that your blog should be atleast 15 months old.

Salient features of this event (this is only to focus more on healthy eating, rather than viewing the rules as roadblocks to everyday cooking)

1) No refined food is allowed and substitutions are more than welcome : For eg: Wholewheat or wholegrains instead of Maida, Palm sugar or jaggery instead of refined sugar. Olive or even groundnut oils instead of margarine and butter --- u get the drift.

2) Vegetarian / Vegan entries are allowed (eggs may be accepted at the discretion of the guest hosting the event for that month). But strictly no meat or liquor.

3) A small write up on how you make / plan to make healthy changes in your kitchen would be highly appreciated. If you are sending multiple entries, you can truncate this info to a few lines.

4) Special focus can also be provided on usage of millets, wholegrains, vegan substitutes - as this series is not just for kids but a healthy eating lifestyle for the entire family. So diabetic specific cooking, arthritic specific cooking, kidney ailments specific cooking - you can write about all these that you do in your post.

Looking forward to your continued support, and making this event a success...

Happy and healthy cooking ! 

Eat Healthy, Love life :)
Cheers
Kalyani
