A HEALTHY MEAL WITH BAGRRY’S !

One of the leading brands of healthy food and breakfast cereals in India. Recieved a bag full of the most nutiritous products from them .My motto for this year was to stay fit and remain healthy. By trying out Bagrry’s I really feel I am one step ahead. 

WHY BAGRRY’S? 

 As their tagline suggests “Let’s put health first” they deal In making healthy products with exceptional quality. Products like Muesli, oats, bran and many more are what they are serving with aim of setting new standards in innovation, responsible nutrition and quality manufacturing.

Their main focus is the quality of the product that they are putting in the packets. They strive for excelence and do not compromise on the quality at all.They believe that being natural has a lot of benefits and that is why nothing artificial is used. Making sure that each product from their packaging to the ingredients inside, everything is PERFECT. They also select their oats from the British countryside and all the almonds come from the sun-kissed fields in California.

MY BOX OF GOODNESS.

WHAT ALL WAS IN THE BOX : 

CRUNCHY MUESLI– Fruit and nut with cranberries. 

MASALA OATS 

OATS ATTA

WHITE OATS

CRUNCHY MUESLI –  Almonds, rasins and honey

CRUNCHY MUESLI – No added sugar, diet. 

SPECIAL SLIM MUESLI

While looking and these products and reading so much about them I thought I would be creating things out of the box with these delicious and nutritional boxes. Something that is a dessert yet healthy, a meal for breakfast, something to go along with lunch and dinner. To show the my followers how you could create so many innovational things out of these products.

 And I also decided to share the recipes with you so you could order your Bagrry’s product and make something yummylicious and yet healthy.

IMG_6311

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CRUST

  • Bagrry’s Oats for Atta – 1 cup
  • Butter – 2 ½ tsp
  • Water (cold) – 2 tbsp
  • Egg yolk – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp

FOR THE FILLING

  • Dates – ½ cup
  • Butter – 1 tbsp
  • Water – ½ cup

PREPARATION

FOR THE FILLING

  • Make the filling by placing the dates, butter and water in a small pan over high heat. Bring to a boil
  • Set the pan aside for the mixture to cool completely and for the dates to absorb some of the liquid
  • Once it has cooled, place the mixture in a food processor and grind till you get a smooth paste

FOR CRUST

  • Add the flour and salt in a bowl.
  • Rub in the butter and egg until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add enough water to get a soft but not sticky dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and keep it in the fridge for 10 minutes
  • Roll out the dough to line the tart tin. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  • Pour the filling  in this baked tart crust
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

These turned out to be exceptionally good!! They were a perfect new dessert that I would be making very often. Not at all fattening, healthy, and full of nutrition. A new feather added to the box.

Taking care of your body is in our own hands and Bagrrys is just making it seem easier.

  • Madinat Jumeriah
  • Palm Islands
  • Atlantis
  • Wild Wadi Water park

Since childhood I have never been a “milk” fan. Mainly because of the way it tasted and how it wasn’t very nature friendly. But now things are moving ahead pretty fast..  Who would have thought that you could produce cold pressed artisan “dairy-free” milk? These bottles have heaven filled inside them. Organically produced nut milk with no preservatives, additives or artificial sweeteners.  

FullSizeRender-7

What is Almond Milk?

It’s not milk, it’s not dairy, and it’s not Lactose, its Milk of almonds- its Almond Milk. Made from cold- pressing activated almonds & filtered water, flavoured with raw honey.

Why Almond milk?

So you & Dairy don’t go very well together, or you are just avoiding dairy. Almond milk is a popular dairy-free substitute for cow’s milk. Almond milk is a rich source of Calcium, Potassium, Omega-3, Magnesium, Selenium, Manganese and Vitamin E. The omega 3 in Almond milk makes it Digestion – friendly and bloat free. It also fills you up and it excellent when on a diet. Almond milk has NO Cholesterol and NO Saturated fats and very little calories (even the naturally sweetened ones) All in all – Almond milk is a great Healthy Choice!

How is it different from packaged almond milk?

First of all we make fresh almond milk, delivered to you the same day it is made. Compared to the processed and packaged almond milk we are completely additive and preservative free. When drinking ALLNUT almond milk, you can be sure of consuming 30-40% almonds in your drink, compared to a mere 7-8% in the packed alternative. And nothing tastes anything like ours.

Referred  – http://www.allnut.in/

The four flavours that were sent over were : 

Unsweetened – activated almond, sea salt, filtered water 

Cinnamon – activated almonds, raw honey, sea salt, filtered water, cinnamon 

Cocoa – activated almonds, raw honey, sea salt, filtered water, cocoa

Vanilla – activated almonds, raw honey, sea salt, filtered water, vanilla 

FullSizeRender-4FullSizeRender-2

These were so delicious, fresh and light that Any diet- conscious, lactose- intolerant, health freak, vegans, experimenters would love to put their hands on these magical bottles. They aren’t harmful for our body like other preservatives- juices, bottled milk and so on. They are for you! To make you not miss milk and also to keep you healthy! Im super thrilled to make these a part of my daily routine and try them out in smoothies, shakes and cold- coffee and so on. Life seems at ease now 😁

THEY MAKE FRESH BATCHES EVERY WEDNESDAY & SATURDAY. HOME DELIVERY AVAILABLE.

Peeps do check their website. Link is above. And try them out.

I’m sure you, your parents and friends would love to put their hands on them and thank ALL NUT in the future. teehee

CAFE WHY NOT? + BLOGGERS MEET.

CAFE WHY NOT? – SATYANIKETAN. 

https://www.zomato.com/ncr/cafe-why-not-satyaniketan-new-delhi

Located in Satya niketan.. Right next to all the other cafes and joints. You will easily locate it but think twice before driving yourself there because parking might be a tab bit tricky. The Bloggers meet was held here by Delhi Foodie Instameet along with India meets and my delhi diary ( follow them on Instagram) 

All the extremely talented bloggers working day and night to give all you foodies out there an insight into where to go next to satisfy those tastebuds, always craving something new and also to serve you with the  best photos, were present at the meet. It was a great opportunity to bond over something we all love: food and also put faces to the well known names of the blogging world.

The music was great, ambience was nice and on point for all the youngsters.

We were served with rose slush that look like this :

IMG_7169

It was tangy and sour with right amount of sweetness.

We started with Baked momos: those tasted okay! Nothing extraordinary or out of the box. The Presentation could have been better.

Next came wood fired thin crust pizza :  (road to college) This was WOW. The crust  was crisp and it was loaded with vegetables and cheese.  A pizza can never go wrong, EVER.

IMG_7195

Pasta with garlic bread : this pasta just reminded me why I stepped into the blogging world, to find hidden gems like this. This butter chicken pasta was just delicious, the perfect mix of Italian and Indian cuisines. Who would have thought that would taste so good. This still makes me salivate. A must try!

FullSizeRender

Strawberry lemon mojito: this is not something I enjoyed much.  

Mojito: this was the good old mojito. Well, a little high in the sugar department if you ask me.

FullSizeRender-4

Chilli chicken burger : the presentation was perfect, a definite eye pleaser. It tasted amazing. Something that I have never tasted before.

FullSizeRender-2

For desserts :

Mud cake : this was nice!Something I have had before, not something new. But the taste was good none the less.

IMG_7202

Oreo cheesecake : every households favourite Oreo in a dessert, again it tasted nice  but nothing new.

IMG_7199

My dessert winner of the two would definitely be mud cake, solely because it excelled in the taste department.

Overall a place to visit atleast once to enjoy the music, food and ambience.

P.S- Could majorly improve with presentation, lighting and service. 

Next coming coming up TRIBE RESTAURANT LOCATED IN VASANT KUNJ.

Lord of the Drinks in collaboration with HMM! and Delhi_Foodie

rsz_hmm_banner-small

Had the best time last week when I got the opportunity to attend one of the fanciest events in town. HMM!- the food and lifestyle experts, organised a success party to honour their 2 years in this  industry at the Lord of Drinks. They are your go-to bloggers when you need to look around for the best restaurants around the world (follow their Instagram handle — for some really good recommendations) image image image

They collaborated with Delhi_foodie, who again are experts in the field of food and have a vast following on Instagram. I actually got invited by them for this event for which I’m very grateful (they’ve got some amazing food pictures from all over Delhi. You have to follow them if ur a pakka delhite like me!) 

The event was super fun. Got to meet fellow bloggers and made a lot of new friends. I lurvvved their LIITs and sangrias. And of course their food. Drums of heaven, Mumbai Vada and Olive Chicken were to die for. See the pictures for yourself! And to top all of this, an eclectic mix of EDM and tabla kept me grooving all the time! Will be spotted here very often now as it’s currently topping my list of ‘good food, drinks and music’ places in Delhi! image image image  image

Watch out for HMM! as they expand in cities like Malaysia, Singapore and (wait for it) Dubai! One stop blog for all the best places to eat in the world. What else does a foodie (like me) need 🙇image

Tea Time Tale Bakery – Gurgaon

Tea time tale delivered these yum-ness at my doorstep today!

image

They are based in Gurgaon. A mother-daughter collab  who specialises in desserts such as jar cakes, cupcakes, tea time cakes and customised according to occasions! 

What was on my doorstep consisted of two cute little jars and a tea time cake. The packaging was simple in a white box with a ribbon bow which went well with the whole theme. It gave sophisticated/elegant look to the goodies. 

After unpacking it I found mouth watering and beautifully crafted blueberry tea cake and heaven filled inside those little jars of strawberry cheesecake & chocolate fudge.

image image

The strawberry cheesecake was out of this world. It was smooth, creamy, just sweet enough with a hint of tartness and a perfect base. I couldnt stop digging into this divine jar 🙈

The chocolate fudge was something I went bonkers for. It was the PERFECT one I have tasted in a longgg time! Sweetness right on point! Just wow.

Blueberry cake was soooo pretty that I had to think twice before digging into it. The detailing, design, the intricacy everything was remarkable. It was so moist from the inside and it literally melted in my mouth. I have visually seen and tasted a lot of home made cakes/desserts, but the amount accuracy of detailing this cake had was F-L-A-W-L-E-S-S. There were I guess two to three shades of blue icing on the cake which looked so lovely and different that it became the key highlight of the whole package. From those tiny little leaves to the small bow on the right hand side of the cake. Everything was just P-E-R-F-E-C-T.

image image image 

A big shoutout to @teatimetale. Im sure I will order from you guys the next time Im in need of cakes or any specific dessert in general. 😀

P.S – my hubby went a little cray cray after eating the strawberry chessecake. He personally feels it is one of the best he has ever tasted. ❤

Follow @teatimetale1 on Instagram and the next time you have a birthday party, baby showers or high tea just contact them. 

                          CIAO PEEPS!!! Love from hopshophog. Dream big. Stay focused.

FESITYFOXDIARIES & LEVIS TIE UP – DELHI

FEISTYFOXDIARIES and LEVIS hosted this event on the 23rd of sep in South ex, part 1, delhi.

  The main idea behind this collaboration was to work with and around

THE NEW LEVI’S® WOMEN’S DENIM COLLECTION FOR FALL 2015

Levis showroom

For the Fall 2015 season, the Levi’s obsessed over the details – from the fit and fabric to finish and style – to create a transformational women’s jean collection. The Levi’s brand global design team identified the key fits and styles that women want, obsessively working to optimize the latest fabric innovations and slimming technologies, creating the perfect fitting jean for each body type. Such innovations include the most advanced stretch and recovery, signature authentic Levi’s details and world-class finishing. – See more at: http://feistyfoxdiaries.blogspot.in/#sthash.rjEKbgPx.dpuf

Feistyfoxdiaries hosted this event with levis for all the fashionistas in town. It was an event only with exclusive invites given my Feistyfoxdiaries. The event was all about Styling & Fashion and also about delicious food & wine!

Chicken tarts    Choco shot with marshmallow      Macaroons :D    Wine & cheese

When I entered the store I saw that it was shut down for public for the respective day and was only open for the bloggers in town. Being the first one to reach at the store , I personally got alot of time to spend  the host herself. She was so grounded & nice to talk too that I think I fell in love with her 😛 and not to forget shes so pretty that you might just keep drooling!!

Feistyfoxdiaries & Me

I was taken around and showed how the event is going to go about. They had selfie booth that could print instant photos ..and like you all know Girls and no selfies? Unbelievable !! And yes I guess everyone just ended up spending most of their time in that small corner in the levis store. And when we finally got tired of those selfies, we shifted to the hair and makeup station.. So basiciallly the whole event was dedicated for styling.

The Levis peeps had kept their new fall collection 2015 infront of us

This new collection was on display for us along with few pieces of tops, jackets and shirts; formal to casual.  We had to style up A LOOK and had to keep in mind on what occasion can that be worn at . This was the highlight of the evening and trust me I had alot of fun. wohooooo

levis showroom- superskinny jeans, black shirt with pearls

What I chose to wear was a casual black shirt with light blue denims (super skinny) paired up with pearl neckless. This look was perfect for a date night or even if u make sudden plans of clubbing or bar hopping! 🍸👀

Then we headed over to the makeup and hair station where you could do both according to your respective look .

And then finally came the ramp walk for all the fashionistas!!!  And in the end three best dressed winners were declared who received free gift vouchers from Levis.

Taking selfies, posing with the levis board, having finger licking food and dressing up like fashionistas – all in all it was sooo much fun and memorable.

The event ended  on a sweet note by levis handing us over with goodie bags that consisted of a wallet, scarf and a 500 rs off on our next purchase. lalaa 😀 Lucky me cause I was just about to buy a new pair of denims and now I know where to go to 👯

Goodie bag from Levis_in

It was a great experience and something I would love to do it again !! Events like these are a must for upcoming bloggers like us, who are new with this industry and are looking for help and someone to guide us. Stephannie( Feistyfoxdiaries) was a great mentor and a lovely person to talk too .

And guys stay tuned… next post will be about Tea time tales bakery based in Gurgaon !! 😀

Till then Dream big 🙂 stay focused.
