Amongst all the current controversy surrounding fat intake and heart disease, The Mediterranean diet remains the gold standard for heart health. Dr Aseem Malhotra, leading cardiologist and author of the recent BMJ paper “Saturated fat is not the issue” advocates adopting a Mediterranean diet, claiming that it has shown to be “three times as effective at reducing cardiovascular deaths as [the cholesterol-lowering drugs] statins”. The PREDIMED trial, a five-year study of 7,447 subjects carried out between 2003 and 2011, found that a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra-virgin oil or nuts reduced the incidence of major cardiovascular events (cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction or stroke) by 30%, compared to a control group following a low-fat diet.

Creativity is the one weapon that has defined and redefined the use of several things. A canvas banner is no exception. The material that was once used to make the sail or to depict an artist’s imagination has now emerged as a convenient and cost-effective method of advertising. This kind of banner has found application in a large number of places including cafes, bars, and restaurants. These are also used in press conferences, theatrical productions, trade shows, and pretty much at every event that wants to draw attention to a particular message.

Before I taste this tea, I was attracted to its name. I was day dreaming around the name ‘Sun Moon Lake’. Just imagine having a cup of tea in a calm evening beside a lake watching the sunset!
I started to write this review while sipping another cup of Sun Moon Lake Black Tea. The leaves of this tea are very sharp and appear long. However it was smooth on my hand and gave a floral fresh scent when open the pack.

Here is a fun & easy way to cut shapes in food. Recently I received square and heart-shaped cutters from FunBites to try and review. In this post, I am going to post my experience with Square shaped set. They named it as FunBites-Cube it!
Its really fun to use it. Earlier I used cookie cutters or knife to cut sandwich into small pieces. I had to do it one by one. But using this set, it is easy to slice a sandwich into small pieces in one try.

A clean home is a responsibility of every woman. We need a clean home with no toxic and germs. But, how many toxic ingredients we touch every day?
Have you ever checked and considered about the ingredients of your cleaning products in the pantry? Usually I try to avoid products which contains harmful toxic agents such as ‘Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) ,1,4-dioxane ,NPE (nonylphenol ethoxylate) ,Phosphates’. But these are the widely used detergent present in many cleaning items. These ingredients can be irritating to the eyes and skin. Also they are identified as cancer-causing chemicals which even some manufacturers don’t list on the label. It is impossible to avoid all these chemicals if we buy artificial cleaning products.

Recently I found a really interesting website for Tea Lovers. They have a unique concept and allow the customers to Design their Tea.

However it was really interesting & I enjoyed selecting & matching few different blends.
