Have a nutrition blast before workout

Empty stomach workout is like driving a Mercedes Benz on an empty fuel tank. With some intake of fruits an hour earlier, your workout is even more fruitful. I have been able to actively run longer than usual. You are able to burn more fat while you have energy in the body to burn it. This energy comes through the fruits which are non fat and with lots of “good” carbs that you need to for a workout. 

1 hour before workout

Add spinach blueberries banana Apple pears kiwi or anything you like

I add protein supplement too since I am a vegetarian 

I use nutribullet to make this quick blast of nutrition

I saw ad on tv but bought from Amazon since it was way easier to purchase through their app and it was just a matter of clicks

The actual site also runs offers sometimes like 1+1 but I had already had the product deliver so I didn’t want to return and pay for shipping and take that shipping efforts which would have ultimately cost me the same. 

Different fruits two times a day with an easy to use blender like nutribullet is really healthy and easy to use. Also I hate cleaning after use but with nutribullet it’s easier to clean I just put water in it and do another blast for 5seconds and it cleans itself. 

My main point is to have fruits and combinations of vegetables throughout the day which helps keep healthy. 

I have vitamin b12 deficiency and I hoping to cope up with that through this healthy lifestyle of a nutrition blast each day and feel much energetic and active these days. I am having a nutriblast made of spinach banana and blueberries while I am writing this post and I am so very excited. 

So have a nutrition blast and have a happy workout!

Aate ka shira – Homemade low calorie Indian desert

Technology can help you do anything. It can not only help you reach your loved ones overseas but also not miss the homemade food that you used to have when you lived with them! Using Skype on my Windows Phone, I did a video chat with my parents and made this delicious low calorie Indian desert at home with instructions from my mom on the Skype call. This desert is called “Aate ka shira” generally but you will find different names as you go from North India to the south and east of india to the west!

How to make low calorie desert called Aate ka shira:

It’s really easy to make with minimum ingredients required. I prefer it plain but you can add cashew nuts, raisins, etc per your choice. 

Ingredients:

1 cup wheat floor – I used multi grain wheat floor from an Indian grocery store

1 cup sugar equivalent of your low calorie sweetner. I used Stevia in the raw in powder form.

2 cups water

1 table spoon butter or oil

Procedure to make Aate ka shira:

Heat butter or oil in a pan, then put wheat floor in the hot pan and keep mixing until the wheat floor is roasted brown. Now, heat the water with sugar or low calorie sweetner and as the water starts boiling, start adding roasted wheat floor and keep stirring with a long spoon to avoid burns. Keep the heat medium to the pan and stir until the wheat is mixed properly with the water and feels like a dough. Let it cool down and serve hot or cold! You can add cashews, raisins, etc. in water just before you start adding the wheat floor to the boiling water. Some people like to add butter on the top while serving but it’s not important in case you are a weight watcher.

Feel free to ask any questions in comments below and don’t forget to Tweet a photo of your Aate ka shira with #aatekashira and #adityabajaj (so that I notice it) and post it on this page.

San Francisco Visit

San Francisco is a beautiful city with lots of things to see and enjoy. If you just want to know about the city briefly and quickly, doing a city tour is a right option for you. Within 3-3.5 hours, you get to know a lot.



With professional tours for a limited time, it works better for me that we do spend a lot of time at one spot. After knowing what all things are available and where to go, you can make a plan for next day if you have time to visit that specific place to explore more or spend more time at interesting places.

Golden Gate Bridge, Twin Peaks, Victorian houses, Alcatraz, cable cars are few of some major attractions in San Francisco. 

If you are in downtown SFO, do visit Homeskillets American eatery joint on 6th and Mission in downtown San Francisco. 

The guide in he paid city tours give you lots of information about the houses, the fire that burned down major part of the city years ago, civic center, cable cars, happening markets, food joints, etc. which is good to know. Although I am not sure how much I remember now.

An interesting fact about cable cars I learned is that there’s a moving cable in the middle track of the three tracks laid for cable cars on the streets of San Francisco, that continuously moves and the cable cars just hook it up to get into motion. This is why cable cars, do not have engines nor do they need fuel. Also, they move at a constant speed since it is dependent on the speed of the cable that is constantly moving.
