Made this delish smoothie bowl for breakfast yesterday. 🌿 It's become so hot in Bombay now that I felt like a nice cold smoothie. Had a bunch of fruits that I'd frozen earlier so decided to use them all. 😃 . 🌱 RECIPE: MATCHA SMOOTHIE BOWL 🌱 • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple 🍍 • 1/2 cup frozen dragonfruit 🥝 • 1 overripe/frozen banana 🍌 • 1/2 cup water/coconut water 💧 • 1 tsp Matcha courtesy @teatrunk 🍵 • 1 kale leaf (for that incredibly deep green) 💚 • 1 Medjoul date 🌴 . 1. Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend them to your preferred consistency. (You could add more water if you prefer drinking to eating. Try this with fresh fruit if you prefer it at room temperature.) 2. Pour in a bowl and top with chia seeds, peanut jaggery brittle and sunflower seeds...I like crunchy toppings as they add an element of surprise in every bite. . I made another one with just fresh coconut milk, coconut water, frozen bananas, dates and matcha - also a good combo! 🍌🥥🍵 . Also, I like that this matcha isn't bitter and the sweetness of the fruits + date was enough. ✅ I'd tried a matcha drink in Hong Kong many years ago and it was so bitter that even after adding tons of sugar, I did not like it at all! 😃 . . .
Gluten-free orange chocolate cake at the all-vegan Earth Cafe 🌱🌏 in Bandra! So yum! 😍 We were here for a group dinner and it was exciting as we were able to order so many items at once! Service was a bit slow but other than that we had a great time. I was happy that my friends (all non-vegan) were open-minded about going to a vegan place and enjoyed their meal! Posting our faves here.🌟 . • Tofu two-ways pizza - definitely the table's fave 🍕 • Tofu scramble • Yam fries with house-made vegan mayo and sour cream 🍟 . We had so much more - check out my "Mumbai 2" Highlights to see everything we ordered. . 📍@earthcafewaterfield, Bandra, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . In other news, I am thrilled to share that I am now the Mumbai Ambassador for HappyCow - the international guide for vegan/vegetarian and veg-friendly restaurants. I've been using their website and app for years for all my travels... it's the most useful resource especially for someone like me - a foodie who likes to travel and check out as many restaurants as I can! It helps me shortlist places and plan my meals. 😁✅ My veggie parents have been using it for years too. Do you use @happycow? 🐮 Check it out if you haven't already and you can add your reviews and photos as well! And for Mumbai, do comment below and tell me your fave places - any place you'd like me to add/review? Let's make this community grow! 💗 . . .
Uttapam with some onion, tomato, green chilli and yum herbed almond feta from @katharosfoods. 🧀 They gave me a sample of their almond feta cheese a little while ago and @veganbombayboy and I have been snacking on it just by itself besides using it in recipes. It's crumbly and delicious 😍 and I love that it's made with clean, simple ingredients - almonds (98%), Himalayan salt, lemon, garlic, thyme and water. And zero oil! ✅ . 🌱RECIPE: ONION TOMATO UTTAPAM WITH ALMOND FETA 🌱 • Uttapam batter (This was made at home by my mom but you could just buy a readily available one. I usually buy idli batter and dilute it for making uttapam.) • 1 tomato, chopped • 1 onion, chopped • 1 green chilli, chopped • Almond feta @katharosfoods . 1. Pour the batter in a pan and spread evenly. Immediately top with onion, tomato, green chilli and crumble some almond feta. 2. Cook for 3-4 minutes and flip to cook the other side for another 3-4 minutes. 3. Take off pan. Top with some more feta. 😋 Serve with some coconut chutney. I had it with some coriander-coconut chutney and beet sauerkraut from @bombucha.in. . Love how vegan product options are increasing by the day in Mumbai - and even better when they're super healthy vegan options! #wfpbno . . .
Vegan nutella sourdough toast! 🤤😍😍🌱 Bought this delish @buttersandmore Hazelnut Cocoa butter sweetened with organic palm jaggery (different from and healthier than regular sugarcane jaggery) @ahimsafest last month. So creamy and just lightly sweetened - perfect for those like me who have a sweet tooth but prefer a richer, deeper dark chocolate flavour to overly sweet commercial dessert. 🍫🍮🍰🍦 . I slathered a generous helping on The Baker's Dozen @freshattbd Four-seed whole wheat sourdough (topped with pumpkin, sesame, flax and sunflower seeds) ordered via @scootsyit. Super yum and crunchy when toasted but didn't seem sour/fermented enough to me. Nevertheless, I was thrilled with my combo - so satisfying! Also, I loved that the bread was delivered plastic-free in a paper bag. . . .
Tried something different besides our standard order at Fabcafé Kemps! • Very Berry Smoothie Bowl (Mixed berry smoothie bowl topped with housemade granola and fresh fruit) 🍓 - A good breakfast option • Spinach, Spring Onion & Water Chestnut Momos (Wheat-free momos made with jackfruit flour & root starches, lightly filled & served with a garlic, chives dip) 🥟 - Yum as always! • Green Pea & Mushroom Cashew Curry and Organic Quinoa Roti 🍄 - Our fave but really wish they could have more vegan options in Mains! . 📍@fabcafe.in, Tardeo, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
This mocha deserved a spot on my feed because: 1. It's vegan, of course ☕ 2. It's made with my fave peppermint chocolate from @masonandco_chocolate 🍫 3. Made with @good.mylk cashew-oat mylk at no extra charge! 😲 4. It's in a blue cup! 🤩 . Swipe to see some more blues - my favourite colour if you haven't figured that out already! 😁The Little Book of #Hygge, cork laptop sleeve from @arturedesign in the background, and a bit of my navy blue hemp dress from @blabelindia. #ecofriendly . This particular location is inside a car showroom but we'd gone on a weekend and it was quiet and cosy. . 📍@bluetokaicoffee, CR2 Mall, Nariman Point, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
When Google Assistant takes you back to a time full of amazing memories... Christmas in Peru 🇵🇪 in 2014. 📅 This was the first country of my three-month solo trip across South America. ✈️🌎 Four years later, it still feels surreal... At times I can't believe I did this but it was surely the best decision I've ever made! 😇 I still remember the mixed feelings and slight panic I felt the night that I was leaving home but a few days into the trip, I felt so calm and settled...wherever I was felt like home! 🏡 It's not very common for Indian women (especially Gujarati women) to travel solo so I'm even more grateful for this life-changing experience! 🌟 . This🎄tree made from plastic bottles was in Aguas Calientes, the sleepy town from where you can visit the fascinating citadel of Machu Picchu. . . . #grateful #throwback #peru #machupicchu #indiantraveller #visitperu #exploreperu #southamerica #visitsouthamerica #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #doyoutravel #gujju #ladiesgoneglobal #iamatraveler #gujarati #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #instatravel #travelphotography #igtravel #traveladdict #forbestravelguide #saynotoplastic #christmas #merrychristmas #christmastree #christmastime #christmaseve
Loooooved watching the Broadway musical, Hairspray, on the @symphonyoftheseas1. Best seats thanks to our Royal Genie, Sunil. I liked this a lot more than Cats on #oasisoftheseas last summer. My niece had such a good time, she wanted to watch it again! So impressed with the entertainment options on this ship. 🤩🚢 . . . #throwback #cruiselife #cruisetime #cruise #cruiseship #royalcaribbean #royalcaribbeancruise #symphonyoftheseas #royalcaribbeanblog #hairspray #musical #ship #cruising #familyholiday #traveldiaries #travelgram #instatravel #traveller #adiventuroustravels #bestseats #royalgenie #potd #picoftheday #indiantraveller #travelling #vacation #happy #fun
