So much fun learning new things, adapting and adjusting in the new environment as I am visiting Gurgaon, India!
First see beauties that I found in the concrete jungle…
I lived in New Delhi 21 years ago before moving to North America. As with any place lots of new constructions… even lifestyle changed drastically with advent of the Internet.
I used to walk to a nearby vegetable vendor to get fresh, seasonal vegetables and now I order online and get it delivered to our doorsteps. The vegetable lady often used to give my kids crunchy cucumber or carrot to munch on while I picked the veggies. I wonder if the cucumber is now replaced by a juice carton or candy in that little market.
September is the tail end of rainy season and we usually don’t eat leafy greens during rainy season in India. I wanted to continue my morning green smoothie routine so I brought Pure Synergy green powder that I can blend with some fruits.
And a friend of mine gave us bunch of fresh sweet Neem leaves, also called curry leaves, from her tree that I am adding to my yummy smoothies here. I might be able to manage some fresh moringa leaves for my smoothies as well.
Also I learned a new thing to sprout – fenugreek seeds! We ate for breakfast with some mung sprouts along with yummy green smoothie 🙂
Fenugreek helps nursing moms produce more milk. What does it taste like?
Fenugreek sprouts are rich source of antioxidants and taste nice and fresh, not bitter like un-soaked and un-sprouted seeds.
I have a fenugreek powder that I love to use on meats and veggies.
That’s great Teresa! I use it as spice for various dishes too. I sprouted them first time and liked them a lot 🙂
