Breakfast : The Belly Rules the Mind

Missing breakfast can be seen as a way of saving time in the morning, when you don’t know the importance of breaking the fast. Your body is at rest when you go to sleep but it is still breathing, digesting and pumping the blood. After an eight-hour sleep – a third of your day – the body’s energy levels are low and it requires replenishment. Even if you are not hungry in the morning, it still needs the extra energy to boost the body for the day’s work.
When you wake in the morning, your body is primed to look for food. Your metabolism is revved up. Your brain needs energy right away, and if you don’t eat or you eat too little, the brain needs to find another fuel source. To do this, it activates an emergency system that pulls energy from muscle, destroying muscle tissue in the process. Then when you eat later, the body and brain are still in high-alert mode, so the body saves energy from the food as fat.
Dine early and take a two-hour break before you sleep, if you don’t have a healthy appetite in the morning. Don’t let the work, lack of time or laziness become a cause for skipping breakfast.

Bohri’s Delicious Servings: Sheer Khurma (19th Serv)

Friends, hubbies and family members, actually today is not any sort of occasion but one incidence was happened at our home that my one of the Bohri friend come at the evening and told me the delicious recipe of their community. I prepared it and taste it. Now it is your turn to take a delicious taste of it.

Ingredients:

01. Milk – 2 litres
02. Vermicelli (crushed) – tbsp
03. Dried dates – 3 to 4
04. Raisins – ½ cup
05. Almonds – ½ cup
06. Pista – ½ cup
07. Charoli – 2 tsp
08. Ghee – 1 tbsp
09. Sugar as per taste

Method:

Boil the milk and leave it aside. Soak almonds, pista and charoli in hot water so as to peel off their skin. Cut the almonds and pista into long slices. Deseed the dried dates and chop them finely. Heat ghee in a vessel on a low flame. Add the vermicelli and stir till it gets roasted. When it turns golden brown, put dried dates, almonds, pista and charoli in it. Roast it on a very low flame till it starts giving out an aroma. Put the raisins and stir a little. Put the previously boiled milk in this mixture slowly. Keep stirring. When the milk comes to a boiling point, lower the flame and let it cook for a while.

As the milk turns cream in colour, put sugar in it. Let it boil till the milk becomes almost half its quantity. Serve hot.
