Wrapping up 2011 and Welcoming 2012 ~ With Orange and Kiwi Salad~ A Healthy Start to the New Year!

Year 2011 had ended and we are already 3 days into the new year 2012. So, here is wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year! May the new year brings you new joy, good health and peace!

Hope you all had a great start to the new year. Mine was great. We went for a short trip to London and witnessed the spectacular new year firework show live. I cannot praise it enough. It was fantastic. I will elaborate on it in a later post but for now have a look yourself.

Now coming to the Wrapping 2011 part. I wanted to do the wrapping up post on 31st Dec 2011 itself, but couldn't manage the time to compose the post. I am doing that now. It is difficult to choose favorites of favorites but somehow I have come up with my top 5s. Here are my top 5 favorites from my blog in two categories: Books & Food.



Do check out these if you have not already! 

To kick start the new year in a healthy way, I am sharing a simple fruit salad recipe.

Serves 1-2


1 Kiwi fruit, peeled and cut into wedges
2-3 clementines, peeled into wedges and the membrane removed
A dash of lemon juice, to taste
Black salt, freshly ground pepper and sugar to taste
3-4 chopped pistachios for garnishing

Arrange the fruit pieces on a plate. Drizzle the rest of the ingredients over it. Serve immediately!

Once again, have a happy and healthy new year! 
Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
