If we decide to go on fast and we don’t eat anything for a week, then we would probably feel hungry, little thinner and maybe weak. But if we deprive ourself of a sleep for seven days, we won’t be able to function at all...If we try to guess which activity is so important for us that we devote almost one-third of our time for it, probably the first things that come to our mind are...

Kitchen secrets/Cooking tips

Microwave Cooking Tip

Covering: • A cover holds in the steam to tenderize the food, keep it moist and shorten cooking time. • A tight cover is ideal for foods that have little or no added water, like when steaming vegetables. Use a dish with a tight lid or cover with cling film. • For foods cooked in liquid, or which create a great deal of juice, make a gap in the cling film cover by rolling back one edge. This allows excess moisture to escape. Or use special microwave lids, which have slits in them. • Cover the dish with tissue paper while preparing "temper" or frying seeds like cumin, mustard etc. The tissue paper retains the seeds while allowing the moisture to escape. • While reheating patties, kachori or mathri, place absorbent kitchen paper underneath to prevent them from turning soggy. Absorbent paper stops fat splattering and absorbs excess moisture. • Not all cling films are micro-safe. If you are going to use cling film in the microwave be sure that it is marked as micro-safe.

Green Eating
Fair Trade

Fair trade certified food ensures a proper wage and working conditions for those who harvest and handle it. But fair trade is green for the environment as well. TransFair, the only fair trade certifier in the U.S., has strong environmental standards built into its certification process that protect watersheds and virgin forests, help prevent erosion, promote natural soil fertility and water conservation, and prohibit GMOs and many synthetic chemicals. TransFair claims that their environmental standards are the most stringent in the industry.

Lallu wins the lottery and dashes to the lottery office to claim his prize. “Give me my Rs20 crore,” he tells the man in charge. “Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way,” the man says. “You’ll get a crore today, and then the rest will be spread out over the next 19 years.” Lallu is furious. “Look, I want my money! And if you’re not going to give me my Rs20 crore right now, then I want my ten bucks back!”
