1. My family stopped lighting fireworks ever since I was 13. My dad pointed out the hazards created by the debris and noise of fireworks and we kids agreed. The first year was hard but the feeling of satisfaction was immense. On Diwali while all other houses are adding their share to the garbage and noise pollution, we light lamps all over the house and turn off the electric ones.
2. I have stopped using incandescent light bulbs and have switched over to compact flourescent ones.
And what better way to celebrate MM – Earth Food than with organic fresh produce? Using the organic blueberries which we picked from a farm a month ago, I made a milk shake. The original recipe is from the web, though I don’t remember the source and I modified it to suit my taste.
Here is the recipe:
Banana – 1 ripe one
Blueberries (Frozen or Fresh) – 1/2 cup
Milk – 1 Cup
Honey – 1 Tbsp
Blend everything till smooth. Adjust the honey according to your taste or replace it with sugar. A very ripe banana makes this drink very flavorful.
This is a very simple recipe and I am not sure if Meeta would accept my entry. But nevertheless I am sending it across.
