India’s Ingredients Winter is Wrapping Up!

Variety is a great way to build your palette, and by doing this you have to constantly try new things! Though staying in your food safe zone guarantees you a happy meal, it can get boring fast.

My first recipe is very tasty and completely reliable for either a small dinner for yourself or a big dinner party. Roasted brussel sprouts and roasted cauliflower are underrated meals because of everyone’s childhood hatred of brussel sprouts. But I assure you, these are great additions to a meal.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Cauliflower:


Olive oil/coconut oil

Brussel sprouts(amount chosen by you)

Cauliflower(amount chosen by you)

Sea Salt


Preheat oven to 350o

Slice brussel sprouts in half and cauliflower to your chosen size

Place on a pan and sprinkle oil and salt over them

Mix the oil and salt with your hands, make sure it is spread out evenly

Put in oven and cook for 35-40 minutes

In need of a great snack to munch on after a boring, long day of school and need a boost of energy? You must try date balls! They are very filling and give you a healthy boost of energy in order to help you survive the hours of homework your are trying to avoid. Enjoy!


1 cup pitted Medjool dates (around 10-12 dates)

3/4 cup of almonds

2 tablespoons pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1 tablespoon hemp seeds

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon cacao


1. Place the almonds, pepitas, chia seeds, and hemp seeds in food processor. Pulse until only very small chunks of almonds are left.

2. Add the coconut oil, cacao, and dates! Pulse until a sticky mixture is created. Mold into bite size balls and store in a container. Pop them in the fridge and after 2 hours of chilling, they’re ready to eat.

You can store these in your fridge for a little over a week (if they last that long, they’re so good!)

Eat up!
