Orange Spritzer

This refreshing pretty drink is the easiest way to give a twist to an ordinary glass of orange juice. This is a nonalcoholic version of the spritzer which can be served to everyone.    Spritzer means a spray or splash in German. It usually consists of wine and Carbonated water. Thankfully Spritzers also come in nonalcoholic versions using fruit /vegetable juices. Soda drinks are too sweet and contain a lot of sugar which may not be liked by everyone. But in this spritzer, you will taste the sweet juice from the fruit juice which is available in natural form and then added with sparkling water to give that soda effect. You can either use fresh orange juice from the orange fruit or store-bought orange juice Make sure it is 100% juice without any added sugars or preservatives and choose organic as much as possible. This is a perfect summery drink to be given to kids when they want to quench their thirst as an alternative to Soda. It not only hydrates but also provides Vitamin

  I love my Mini Cast iron skillet. I had already baked my eggless  cherry and peach skillet cake in my large cast-iron skillet..but was eager to make something in this cute mini skillet. Thats when I got the base recipe from Lean Green Nutrition Friend.

Mushroom and corn Soup

          Creamy Mushroom and sweet corn soup are one of the easiest soups that you can make..it is not only delicious but easy to make. It is so flavourful...you will want to make it again and again. I never liked mushrooms since I did not eat this from childhood in India. But when we moved to the USA...Vegetarians like us have to keep up our vitamin d levels due to extreme winters..and mushroom is the only source of vitamin D in the produce aisle that is available to us along with the sunlight (very rare in winters). So occasionally we like to eat Organic Edible Mushrooms. Here I have used organic Cremini mushrooms in this recipe.     Mushrooms and sweet corn are like a match made in heaven. They blend together very well. Also, the onion and garlic enhance the taste of this soup. This can be made with minimal ingredients that are all at home. This doesn't require any milk or whipping cream. So it's low in fat content. Perfect with toasted bread/garlic breadsticks.
