Sizzling Tastebuds

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 [email protected]. For guest hosting, the only condition is that
your blog should be atleast 15 months old.
