Amaranth and chia breakfast “pudding” with cocoa and cinnamon

Hello my lovely readers! It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? I’m so glad to finally get back to blogging and I’m excited to share all the new recipes I’ve been testing the past few weeks.

As you may or may not know, my mother unexpectedly passed away three months ago at a very young age (she was just 51) due to a massive heart attack which was then followed by several cardiac arrests. Since she had no prior history of any heart problems, this came as quite the shock and I really needed some time to let it sink in, heal and return to my usual self. This experience has taught me that life is very unpredictable and we should really cherish each day that we have with our loved ones. You never know what’s around the corner…

March 6, 2012Breakfast, Recipes

Hello there! Today I’m very excited to present a very talented food blogger! Please welcome Kiran Srivastava, the lifestyle blogger, food stylist, recipe developer & photographer at

I “met” Kiran of KiranTarun a few months ago and we’ve been commenting back and forth since then! She has an amazing blog with vivid photos and recipes that will make anyone’s mouth water. What I love most about her site is her innovative recipes that are not only flavourful, but healthy too. She always has a great sense of humour – reading her posts always puts a big smile on my face! One of my favorite recipes on her site is the spiced chicken with pomegranate . Her recipe actually inspired me try savoury dishes with pomegranate!

Since I love her site so much, I couldn’t wait to share my space with her and asked her if she could write a guest post for Flavour Fiesta. I’m so glad Kiran accepted and was able to share a delicious quinoa recipe with us. To make things a little more interesting, I also asked her a few fun “interview” questions. Read on…

Chocolate smoothie

It’s the beginning of a new year and as expected, most of us have of resolutions. Problem is that it’s hard to stick to those resolutions unless you make them part of your lifestyle. It’s not hard, but it does require some effort. One of my resolutions for the new year is to eat breakfast every single day. Afterall, breakfast is the MOST important meal of the day,so you have to make it count! I plan to put an end to skipping breakfast this year in an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle.Sometimes, I’m not in the mood of eating in the morning, so I skip the meal altogether and end up feeling exhausted by lunch time. Not a good idea. If you’re not a morning person, a quick smoothie is always a great way to get the nutrition you need and this chocolatey smoothie is almost as good as dessert. Imagine starting your morning with blend of chocolate, berries, bananas and coconut… And it’s also great for your skin! Read on for the recipe and also beauty details from Connie at the Beauty Nerd.
