We all know that the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach, as a special breakfast on Valentine’s Day will instantly make you feel the love and also impress your partner! Breakfast in bed is the perfect start to any day, but it should definitely be a Valentine’s Day tradition as what could be more perfect than heart-shaped pancakes and a card from your loved one.

Food bowls are all the rage these days. Noodles, veggies, fruits or sushi, you name it; everything tastes better when served in a bowl. Now, this could be due to their gluten-free raw quality or simply because they look awfully gorgeous on Instagram.
Smoothie bowls, like all other bowls, are spamming our Insta-wall and for all the right reasons. They’re quick to make, no cooking required (literally), healthy and did we mention their ability to bring you 1000 likes in an hour?

We all promised ourselves a healthy Ramadan — no fried pakoras, no fizzy drinks and no skipping suhoor meals. But let’s face it, so far all we’ve done is eat fried items, drink sodas and skip suhoor.
While the first two are still (somewhat) achievable, waking up for suhoor meals requires a lot more than self-restraint. Lack of sleep combined with post-iftar bloating makes it impossible to wake up in the in the middle of the night.

We promise: we are NOT going to start with the litany of rainbow and unicorn things that you’ve seen this year. TBH, we too, have had enough of the sprinkles, pinks and highlights. But darn these colourful croissants!
We JUST couldn’t resist these can’t-take-our-eyes-off-pretty rainbow croissants.

Let's admit it, most of us here would rather grab a quick cup of coffee from the nearest shop than spend 10 minutes to make a healthy breakfast for ourselves. And that's AFTER fully understanding the importance of the first meal of the day.
Why? Well, 1. We are lazy. 2. We get bored at the sight of same old boring eggs, every day.
But guess what? Eggs are far from boring. This nature's protein-filled goodie is as versatile as a food can be. Scrambled, fried, boiled, baked — the options are endless.

Yep, we too scoffed at the idea of cooking ANY edible food in 1 minute given how peeling a stubborn banana sometimes takes more than a minute.
You too, can doubt and scoff all you want, but the fact is: You CAN make yummy food without spending hours in the kitchen.
Of course, some obvious food items (rice, meat, pasta) are way out of our 1-minute deadline, but these genius recipes are more about being kitchen-creative and knowing what flavours (and food items) work best with each other than actually cooking them.

It's 8 am in the morning. Somewhere in the world, someone is having breakfast that’s TOTALLY opposite to your first meal.

How many times do you tell your mum that you love her? Certainly not enough to match the number of times she changed your diapers. No matter the religion, colour, caste or creed, the nurturing love of a mother is as universal, selfless and endless as the blue sky.
The UAE witnesses Mother’s Day on March 21st every year and March 26th is Mothering Sunday in the UK. Plus, countries like Canada celebrate in May, so basically, the beginning of every year is pretty much dedicated to mums across the world.
