Fruity Fun of Summers

The summers have always been special as they bring vacation and reasons that you can plan a hill station holiday. However, one more thing that makes summers so special is the availability of a range of mouth-watering fruits through this season. Let me make you count these juicy delights of this season; mango, watermelon, litchi, apple, plum, kiwi, cucumber, guava, black plum (jamum), musk melon and many more.

Though we get most fruits all season these days in supermarkets, the real taste of these can only be tasted in their season according to me. All these fruits are not only tempting to our taste buds but also highly nutritious for us.

Most summer fruits like plums, melons, litchi etc. are rich with water content which is a must have in the summer season. They help you get calories (energy), calcium, vitamins, fiber and minerals. Summer Fruits like mango are source of vitamin K which is very good for our bone health. Summer Fruits like black plum (Jamum) are very helpful in controlling blood sugar and thus prevent diabetes. Summer Fruits like guava are rich in fiber and sooth our digestion system and prevent constipation.

Besides being a source of iron, calcium, potassium, carbohydrate, folate, calories and vitamins, the summer fruits are also rich in antioxidants. The king of summer fruits, that is mango, is rich with antioxidants that prevent macular degeneration that causes aging in people. Thus, summer fruits’ consumption is helpful in keeping us younger and beautiful too. These are delighting natural sources of nutrition that nourish our eyes, hair and skin.
These fruits are must haves not because of what they provide us but also because of what they take away from us. Consumption of summer fruits prevents obesity, cancer, asthma, heat stroke, dehydration and many other diseases that none of us would ever wish to meet with. 

So, go on pick these juicy delights of summer season before the season gets over because you know should not miss the nourishment they serve you with.

  1. I would totally agree with the choice of eating seasonal fruits. ALas, the mango sesaon is gone.

    1. We still are relishing them here in Delhi? In which city you are?

  2. I agree with you... not just fruits but even veggies. It's better to eat seasonal fruits and veggies because the quality and freshness is much better! This post is really good for moms like me who don't really have enough information about what fruits grow in which season! :)

    1. Adding color in life and adding color in plate always help us as a whole :)

  3. I am a fruit lover. We make sure we have not less than 2 servings for fruits per day. Mango is something I can quit everything for.

    1. I know Mango lover can do anything for a mango bite :)

  4. Good post on summer fruits. Seasonal fruits are always better than others. My daughters love fruits but not a very big fan of veggies.

    1. Kids are like that. Even i hate veggies in my childhood.

  5. Thankfully one of my daughter is a fruit lover & demands any seasonal fruit available. Loved the article.

    1. This is great that your daughter likes fruits. I know many families where kids hate them. Parents run after them so that they have it.

  6. Mango is my all time favourite fruit. I wait all year round d for it..really the best part about summer.

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..
I am not the wife who has her biological…

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.
