Dinners are overrated!

There is an old adage, a key to healthy lifestyle

Eat Breakfast like a King
Eat Lunch like a Prince
Eat Dinner like a Pauper

Desi breakfast stands true to this!
(We end up eating like a King at all times but that is a story for later)

Growing up weekends meant extra time for breakfast and this was a beloved meal.

Time to Wash Up!

Burnt out after washing your groceries for the nth time since last March?
Hands as dry as week old bread, on a good day?

Head over to @sauboonsoaps

Their products seemed too good to be true
✅Vegan
✅All Natural
✅Handcrafted
✅Unscented options
✅Competitively priced
✅Made In San Diego (Local!!!)
✅Available at a Farmer’s Market near me

If I made the effort of masking up and leaving home, I could even check out the soaps for real on Sunday @lajollaopenairemarket between 9am - 1pm.

I was a kid in a candy shop. Kudos to Zulfar, the owner, for letting me take my time and helping me.

What did I buy?

Chocolate Rose Soap (first soap)

Sampler Pack of 4 Soaps: 
(front to back)
Dark Rich Chocolate 
Lavender
Carrot Powder (Unscented)
Hibiscus Rosehip (Unscented)

Ramie Soap Bag
Place the soap inside it and use as a loofah 
Hang it later to store the soap - no gunk here

First and Final Impressions
I love them all!

I came home and realized how beautiful Chocolate Rose Soap was.
I immediately contacted her to ask if she had any more but it was sold out. No surprise.

She directed me to @ditorrstore , a local art store where you can score a few of the sold out favorites.

She has a variety of products
If a Soap Bag isn’t your choice go for the bamboo soap dishes
If you want more than a soap get a foaming scrub
And for a luxurious bath, treat yourself to the  bath salts, bath bombs or bubble bath truffles.
Add to the luxury with rich non greasy lotion bars.

Also on offer are pretty gift sets that are value for money.

Her Ramadan gift boxes are now on sale.
Get one for friends or family.
Better yet, treat yourself 💕

Time to say bye bye to dry bread hands.

Her chocolate and vanilla soaps had me wanting to eat them. Good thing she writes ‘This is Soap. Do Not Eat’ on her boxes.

If you could have your favorite dessert made into a soap scent, what would it be?

Do you REALLY need it?

You asked. I listened.
And here we are!

After the last post, I got many questions about whether one really needs an air fryer.

I am thankful for the questions and am glad that I can be of help. Let’s jump right in!

Which tip did you find most useful?

Time for Exams! Sorry, Mix Veg 😄

There are some foods we link with certain points in our life

Eid Biryani
Wedding Qorma
Childhood cereal

This recipe is special because this was the mix veg that mum (Amma @shabnamkhalid.khan ) used to make unfailingly during our exams.

Exam Mix Veg/Crunch Week Mix Veg
✅Gets cooked in a jiffy
✅No need to deal with onions

Yeah, no one wants to slice and chop onions after teaching 30kids at work and then helping 3 at home to prepare for their exams.
Hats off to Mum!

I am preparing for a marathon of exams for my US Medical License and this seemed apt for the times

Sharing it as part of Food That Means Home Series

Check out what my guests are sharing as the food that means home to them

@feast_through_lens 
@foodaholic_ayesha 
@myalgerianamericankitchen 
@the_chilli_apron 

This recipe certainly means home to me. It comforts me during exam preparations because those previous exams did end well, Alhamdulillah (Thanks to Allah)

What comforts you during a high pressure situation?

Rip it off! 

Time to rip off the bandaid and have an open honest conversation 

What would you say if the government passed a law banning you from eating all meat and meat products because they deem it inappropriate for you?

What if it was the government banned all fruits & vegetables because they deem that the correct thing to do?

Unacceptable, right?

What do you say when a lady wears something she loves?
Awww, you go girl!
Looks so pretty.
Work it, babe!

What do you say when you see women in hijab?
Brainwashed?
Subservient?
Oppressed?
Brave?

Brave because they are doing what they are doing despite being forced or brainwashed into wearing the hijab...?

Sad stances all.

You can wear a huge hat, a fashion scarf or a mask because it is trending or is necessary to protect yourself.

However if a Muslim woman wears 
-hijab (head covering),
-niqab (face covering),
-jilbab/burqa (long flowy gown covering head to toe) 
as an article of her Faith (Islam),
it becomes a matter of international dialogue and laws are passed to strip her of her basic human right in the name of empowerment!

Patriarchy has set laws for women to follow since forever, because it considered them less than.

What do we say about this weird stance of feminism & savior complex fueled empowerment, when it sets another set of laws for women to be accepted as empowered humans who can think and choose for themselves?

What hypocrisy is this?! 

How do you empower women then, if not by ripping off their clothing?

✅Respect their choices
✅Accept them how they are & who they are
✅Stop becoming hurdles in their path or forcing them to prove themselves to your standards
✅Give them employment opportunities and wages based on their qualifications & work

Don’t be an instrument of patriarchy, irrespective of your gender.

That is my stance. I’d love to hear from you. What do you understand by women empowerment?

Want or Need?

I recently polled what it was we most craved when not feeling well: 
Someone to baby us 
OR
Medicines

75% said they would value loving care over medicines

As a Doctor, I agree!

One of our Professors taught us the A-B-C of being a good Doctor
A - Availability
B - Behavior
C - Competence

He said our competence didn’t matter if we made the patient feel bad.

So when someone you know isn’t feeling well, baby them. It makes the medicine work better and pain seem tolerable. 

Babying someone doesn’t mean pushing their boundaries.

What does babying someone mean?

Asking after them
Making them some food
Giving them space
Allowing them to just be
Not digging into what why when how of whatever may be troubling them

It can mean one or all of this. 

Listen to them. 
What is their love language?

And What is your love language? 
What do you want when you don’t feel well?

It’s a wrap!

Too late to the trend? I twisted it for the longest time possible. But when I had only leftovers for lunch, I gave in.

This is a healthy wrap perfect for when you want to make a well balanced meal out of a salmon fillet and a salad jar.

For salad jar recipe, check out the Taco Salad Jar @nutritionbynaz 

Look out for the salmon fillet to be posted soon @dynamic.fatimakhan 

Ps. @butteroverbae was the means to my courage to try this by making some delicious Desi versions 💕
