Quote Of The Day

Let me know your thoughts on todays quote of the day in the comments below!

What’s Up With Pooj?

My mum has been baking a lot so I’m very happy right now, lol. Eating good food makes me happier than anything else. She made some jam tarts the other day where she made everything from scratch including the jam. Today she made some vegan buns and we made burgers from them. I tried to make my own version of the Beyond Burger patty since I find the actual Beyond Meat kind of unhealthy. Like the sodium in particular is so high and I have high blood pressure running in my family so I’d rather avoid that. I had some fries with it too. As you can guess, it’s my cheat day from eating oil-free. But for the rest of the week I’ll be good and eat oil-free. Treats are necessary to survive lol.

It’s been raining almost daily in Nairobi and I have been loving it. There is really nothing more soothing than going to sleep with the sound of rain in the background.

Oh, and my parents and I are rewatching South Park. They love it and I’m always down to watch South Park. It’s been fun because it’s been a while since I watched the show and I had forgotten some of it.

What have you been up to recently? Do you have anything planned for this week? Anything fun and exciting happening in your life? Are you a fan of South Park too? Do let me know in the comments section below. Or simply stop by and say hi!

    1. Oh, I didn’t know that. It’s nice to know we have similar diets. Yes, sodium is often a silent killer. Thanks for commenting.

  1. Nice quote! Of course, we ruin our today by endlessly thinking about the days gone by. Only if we can learn to live in the present moment, life will appear to be much better.
    There is no substitute for the food cooked by mama. It always tastes yummiest. Trying new dishes at home is a wonderful idea and kids particularly like this because they always get something new to eat.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I very much agree. The art of living in the present is so vital but much harder to actually do.
      Definitely, nothing compares to your mothers food.

      1. Of course, it’s harder but we must try to learn to live in the present. This is worth trying, though difficult. We live too much in the past or remain exceedingly worried about the future. Resultantly, we fail to enjoy our present (actual life).

  2. The quote of the day suggests to not ruin today by the badness of yesterday, I agree, I choose to ruin it by worrying about tomorrow. JK In preparation for tomorrow I am making an apple pie and finishing the gnome hat. Tomorrow I’d like to know at least today was successful. LOL don’t take me seriously, it’s spring break and the living is easy…

        1. I’ve just been reading a book a friend is about to publish but it’s not coming out till April. I’ll let you know about it once it’s available.

  3. Yummy, homemade food by mom is the best. ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿค Certainly a blessing. Haha South Park- your parents seem so cool, lol! For me, tomorrow Iโ€™m hanging out with my sister and niece. Theyโ€™re moving away to another state in literally two days & Iโ€™ll miss them sm! Gonna enjoy this time together โค๏ธ

    1. Thank you! Yes, nothing compares to our mothers cooking. Oh no, that’s sad but glad you’ll be able to spend time with them before they leave ๐Ÿ’•

  4. Love the quote! It’s so true. A lot of us spend time ruminating over the past, that we miss the glorious present.

  5. The quote really resonates with me in terms of being present to the now, instead of ruminating on the past.

    Iโ€™m not a follower of South Park but I think itโ€™s cool that itโ€™s something you and yours parents have in common. Those kind of connections can be rare.

    This week is hopefully a bit chill after a very busy week hosting a musician and attending many shows over the weekend. And now hoping for proper spring weather to arrive! ๐Ÿฅถ

    1. Yes, same here. I think living in the present is difficult but necessary.

      Yeah, it’s nice to connect through shows we like.

      I’m glad you have some time to relax now and hopefully the snow/cold will be gone very soon!

  6. Yum. Jam is tasty. Yes, it is easy to dwell on the past, especially if it made you unhappy and you want to replay and fix that moment. But while you’re in replay mode, you’re missing out on the present.

  7. I usually come for “what’s up with pooj” ๐Ÿ˜‚

    But that’s a great quote tbh ๐Ÿ™‚
    We generally ruin our present by thinking of past.

    I’m happy to hear about you are eating some home cooked food. Jam sounds delicious, with some bun ๐Ÿ˜‹
    You should have shared some pics ๐Ÿ˜›

    I haven’t watched south park.

  8. I too find Beyond Meat burgers way too salty. Otherwise I would eat them. I lean towards vegan food as often as I can – I just feel healthier eating plant-based. Occasionally I will eat meat if itโ€™s in the meal Iโ€™m eating only to be reminded that I prefer plants!

    1. I don’t find them salty but I saw the sodium levels written on it and was like “nope!” ๐Ÿ˜… I feel like plant based just makes you feel so much better both mentally and physically.

  9. Its been raining a lot here too. My cousin came over for some work so I have been escorting her to the office. Lol. Life couldn’t be any better.

  10. โ€˜Eating good food makes me happier than anything else.โ€™ You wrote this for me, right? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Oh, I hate South Park ๐Ÿ˜… Not my type of show definitely. But love the fact that youโ€™re spending quality time with your family โค๏ธ

  11. Itโ€™s been a long time since Iโ€™ve seen South Park! Your mom is my kind of chef, I like to do everything from scratch too. I actually spent 3 hours last night with my mother feeding the craziest food combos we could think of into chat GPT and seeing what it could come up with. It managed to give a few ideas I totally want to try, like Korean style shrimp tacos lol.

    1. Yum, Korean food is always delicious and I’ve tried vegan Korean tacos and they were really good. I’m the opposite, I don’t often make things from scratch ๐Ÿ˜…

  12. Love the quote. My mom and aunts are huge bakers/cooks as well. My freezer is full of homemade soups and sauces. I love a good rain. Sleeping with the sound, cozy is the best feeling. Things here are busy but good. Hope work is going well.

  13. I must admit I do treat myself from time to time with less healthy snacks, but I still get back on track right away without falling off my healthy diet.

    I have heard of South Park, but I have never watched the program myself. I don’t watch much TV other than when I visit my mother. She loves her TV programs, her favorites are old comedy programs and lifetime movies.

    Tomorrow I will miss your post, I have to take my mom to an eye appointment. After that taking her to shop for some health supplies, so that is my agenda for tomorrow.

    Enjoy your posts always

    1. Yes, it’s okay to have treats as long as we eat healthy majority of the time.

      That’s okay and good luck with your mothers appointment.

          1. We share our love for cinamon rolls, I do treat myself to them now and then.

            I used to be big into burgers and fries when I was younger, but now I seldom have either of them very often

            1. I’ve been avoiding burger and fries too but it’s so hard to resist fries. I have them like once a month. And cinnamon rolls are a delicious treat for sure.

              1. We are better to treat ourselves now and then instead of going without, the more we go without them the more we want them and might over consume them

    1. Thank you! Yes, I’ve heard it rains a lot in India as well during monsoon โ˜”๏ธ Lol yes, UK weather is know to be that way ๐Ÿ˜…

  14. A bit to ponder in the quote, but yeah, today is always filled with potential.
    Eat up, it’s your free day๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿพ .
    I’d share some food I had recently but you know my carnivorous appetite ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

    Tried to make some jam a few weeks ago. It’s delicious but so sticky it can’t spread on the bread. Your mum must be awesome at it.๐Ÿ–๐Ÿพ

  15. I have no plans and I donโ€™t watch South Park. Adult shows are typically too political and make me get uncomfortable when theyโ€™re nasty as well. While the show sounds nice and funny, itโ€™s not really something Iโ€™d spend time watchingโ€ฆbut unfortunately a lot of kids shows are absolutely abysmal.

    I havenโ€™t found a show yet thatโ€™s a cartoon and itโ€™s something Iโ€™d truly enjoy and doesnโ€™t feel like a Tolkien rip off, make me think uncomfortable thoughts (like Adventure Time, I can explain), or isnโ€™t preachy or weird.

    Iโ€™ve watched some shows from my childhood over like Strawberry Shortcake and I love it so much. I am not the biggest fan of adult content and similar (that are cartoons) and I wish I could make my own so I can watch it, but I am unable (as of now).๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพ

    1. That’s fair. I think adult shows aren’t for everyone. Have you seen Gravity Falls? I used to like it when I was a teen but not sure if you will.

      1. I used to watch it when I was a teen. When the show first came out, I was the same age as the twins. I didnโ€™t care for the second season but first season was tight.๐Ÿ‘Œ

  16. Wow Pooja G what a great post and powerful quote there. I agree that it is wise to not ruin a today by thinking about the bad day or the yesterday things hence it is worthwhile to focus on the present. Also, food makes me happy too and I am a biscuit type of guy๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿช๐Ÿฉ

  17. Nothing like Mum’s cooking! I find South Park rather weird because at first I saw a couple of good episodes, and then when my Dad and I were stranded, we watched one. We must have run into a bad one because it was quite disturbing. It’s the one when one of the characters cuts his nose and there’s some other uneccessary blood. Plus, Dad and I didn’t need that after a major car accident

    1. Yeah, South Park is not for most people so I understand. It can be quite graphic at times. I’ve just grown up watching stuff like that so I’m used to it but after the accident I understand why you would avoid blood.
      True, a mum’s cooking is always best!

      1. That’s a fair point too. With me, I have to be in the right mood for gore, but I wasn’t expecting it from that show because I don’t know it that well
