Have a date with my Coffee Love

Life is full of ups and downs and we keep on looking around for positivity , inspiration , happiness and reasons to celebrate.

We feel sad when no one is around to cheer us up. It’s then you need to ignite your passion with the company of your favourite food and drink. Believe me , it works and you start enjoying your own company.

Whenever I feel depressed ,unmotivated and my energy levels go down , there is something which rejuvenates me and makes me feel better. It not only gives a company but brings my innerself out.

That is A Date –

 A date with my love, my Coffee.

Coffee, super blogger challenge

I love to have a coffee in any form – hot or cold. If I get a company, its good, if not , I alone can enjoy my cup of coffee.
It is a big stress buster for me. Even the recent studies have proved that drinking a few cups of coffee is  good for our health.

History of  Coffee

Do you  know who discovered coffee and how did it reach to us ? The answer is  really interesting . It was not discovered by a well know historian or scientists or any researcher. It was discovered by a shepherd. Watch this video showing it’s origin and a brief history of coffee.

Good News for the coffee lovers

Recent studies have shown that if we drink coffee in limit and without sugar and without milk or with less milk, it boosts the health of our heart and also helps in preventing lung cancer , Parkinson disease and diabetes-2 also.

Coffee-A best friend for some

Many times I go to cafe to order coffee and have seen many people standing in a cue and thinking of their order of coffee. I think there is only a few number of people who know the real difference between types of coffee though they are well conversant with their names like Expresso , cappuccino , latte or Mocha. These are only few names to mention.

Types of Coffee in the World

There are more than 20 kinds to coffee in the world. There are many kinds of coffee beans grown but most of the coffees are prepared from mainly two kinds of coffee beans- Coffee Arabica and Coffee Robusta. Coffee Robusta is more bitter and stronger in taste. Here are the few names of the different types of coffee drinking by the people in the various parts of the World.

  • Expresso
  • Cappuccino
  • Mocha
  • Latte
  • Flat Milk
  • Macchiato
  • Americano
  • Chai Latte
  • Egg Coffee
  • Doppio
  • Mazagran
  • Borgia
  • Frappé
  • Spiced Latte( My latest love) and list goes on.

Know Your Love :

  • Expresso :  If you are in love with Expresso, then it has 7g of  ground coffee in the filter and has brewed for 20 mins to make it 30 ml. You can have a double dose of your love with 14 grams to make it 60- 75 ml.
  • Cappuccino :  It has expresso coffee , milk and  foamed milk in same proportion i.e. 60ml in same order.
  • Latte : It has more of milk in quantity compared to the quantity of the coffee, double or more than that.Thus , it tastes less of coffee compared to Cappuccino.
  • Mocha : It gives you a flavour of expresso coffee with hot chocolate, topped with whipped cream. I am sure you can resist falling in love with it.
  • Macchiato : You can find it in Italy as they have invented it. It has coffee with only foamed milk on the top. In Kosavo, you will find it with cream on the top.
  • Flat Milk  : It has expresso coffee with microfoam milk( steamed milk with some bubbles) Unlike Cappuccino which has macro foam on the top.
  • Chai latte : As the name suggest, expresso coffee with a flavour of masala tea.
  • Mazagran :An expresso without milk with a flavour of lemon juice. Yes ! A coffee with lemon juice with a little of sugar and ice cubes. A must try.
  • Spiced Latte : Now , time to describe my latest Love❤❤. It has Expresso and milk with flavours of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.

So , next time you order your favourite Coffee , feel the taste of and enjoy the real flavour of it or find your new love like me. I am also eager to share my new love. Till then , fix a date with coffee at your favourite place , may be  at a Coffee Shop, Workplace or everyone’s favourite- Home Sweet Home like me.

Caution : Coffee contains caffeine. Excessive intake may be injurious to your health . Consume it at your own risk.

Magical ways to do healthy shopping for your meals

 

Superbloggerchallenge2018, contest, healthy shoppingPicking up a bag and going to the market to buy grocery and  other products of daily needs is  a big task. The annoying part is when we come , we see a lot of things which were either not required or can’t be used for any purpose.

By the end of month, again same thing happens.  Finally either you have to throw as you didn’t use. Sometimes we bring a lot but realise that the products you have with you are not good for health.

It will restrict you to spend unnecessarily time and get allure with the products. You will be more concentrated on the listed things only.

3. Prefer whole wheat breads and other products :  These days most of the products are available in both the versions – whole wheat or refined flour. Go for whole wheat as it good for your stomach and have lot of fibres. It is easy to digest and provide good amount of roughage.

He simplified his Valentine

Valentine, quote, love, relationship, don't break my heart

He is the one about whom I dreamt

With whom I feel intimacy.

I relish his presence

And I am blessed to

Have him in my life.

He is my first Valentine

Now  I am not single

I  have my soul mate

Who is making feel awesome .

I passed my last night

Just thinking about how

To make his day memorable.

Before I could do anything

He gave me a surprise.

‘It was hardwon for me,

‘Sorry !’ He took a sip of wine

And left me alone, then n there

To simplify his first Valentine

How many roles are you playing ?

Roles, life, blog, views

The roles you have played in your real life so far. How easy has it been to switch/transit from one role to another? How many more do you wish to play?

The idea to write on this prompt on Indispire made me think little more deeper. As a human being on this stage of life as Shakespeare said we have different roles to play but I never gave a thought to it.

They were all dressed in their finest as though life really were some magical stage play in which every moment ought to be illuminated with its own bright spotlight.

As said by Shakespeare

As a woman, at present,I am playing the role of mother, a wife , a daughter , a sister ,a daughter-in- law simultaneously in the family. Every role is carrying a unique feature to play.

Talking in terms of official front, I am a teacher, an educationist, a mentor , a guide for some and a colleague, a friend, a senior , a junior to other.

In Society, different roles are there to play. A friend, a neighbour, a motivator, a leader.
Considering the past,role of student , a girlfriend is now over.

I have been a creator of life when I gave birth to the life !

The list doesn’t end here. It cont

I am devotee , I am follower…….

I am a blogger, I am….???????

There are few I must have forgotten either because I  played for short  period of time or may not be so important.

Every role have certain limitations and some advantages , hence transition from role to another has never been easy. Sometimes with in a few seconds a makeover is required and then you really find a challenge. But life is a very good teacher and it teaches us in such a beautiful manner that you ,at times ,forget about this switch.

Sometime the struggles you face during these transitions are unforgettable e.g.being a mother to mother-in – law or vice verse. A beautiful change from womanhood to motherhood or a man to fatherhood. A girlfriend to wife and many more.

Think of a phase when so many roles are played together in a one moment of life.

As we have to pass in the test to get promoted to another class or have to perform better to get promotion in job, so is in life.

Perform your duties well and get promoted to avail a chance to play another role. Life does not permit you to choose the role but allows the way you want to act . Not everyone get a chance to play all the roles of life , yet I expect there are few more that I have to play.

You think of yourself
as a citizen of the universe.
You think you belong
to this world of dust and matter.
Out of this dust
you have created a personal image,
and have forgotten
about the essence of your true origin”

Come, Play , Show different shades of life.
Enjoy and say good bye till you meet the eternal peace.

Each role is carrying few responsibility and few duties. Hope God Almighty will give me the power and strength to get successful in each and every role I will  play in future and at present too.
