What’s Up With Me?
Well, not much. After a pretty fun April, May has been somewhat anticlimactic. Which I’m honestly fine with. Sometimes there are days when you just want to chill. I feel like May is filled with those kind of days for me and I like not having too much to do.
The most exciting thing that has happened this month is that I have been trying to get back to eating healthy. I dropped the ball a little in April but this month has been good. Again, I have been focusing on eating healthy not weight gain or weight loss of any kind since I think health is more important than a number on the scale. Just my opinion. I had avocado pasta today which is mostly raw and completely oil free. Plus, avocados have the good kind of fat that give you a nice *insert peach emoji*
I’m sure some of you may remember the recent book review I did for Re-Create And Celebrate by Cindy Georgakas. Well, her book launch party is going to be happening on Saturday, 20th May and I just wanted to remind you guys since you’re all more than welcome to join. I’m sure she would really appreciate it if you guys showed up (virtually). Find the instructions on how to join here.

Love this reminder to be me and noone else.
Glad to hear that.
Avocado pasta sounds good!
It’s become one of my favourite dishes!
Love the quote, it’s very motivational 💫Also, u reminded me I’ve some avocado’s to use up! 🤣
Avocado pasta is a good way to use them up before they go bad! 😀
She lost me as a fan long ago from personal hypocritical actions.
However my quote contribution:
Learn the rules like a pro so you can break them like an artist~ Pablo Picasso
Love that quote, I think it makes so much sense even for writers.
Good to read.
It’s a great quote. May is kicking my ass.
Thanks so much and yeah mine too but just today. I may have cursed the month by mentioning it had been chill so far 😅
Absolutely. It speaks volumes. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.
Thank you and have a great week.
I loved the quote, because coincidentally I heard this same idea today already. The thing is I spent 4 hours on the phone with my brother, and this is the gist of what he told me more or less. I am happy, because we were out of touch for about 8 years. So I am going to celebrate our reunion, it’s exciting!
Thank you so much. he’s a wise person. Glad you guys could talk again and connect after so long!
It’s a huge step
Great Read Can i leave my thoughts ?! –
Thanks for reading , Love The Blog !!
Thanks – TheDogGod
Thank you so much!
No more words, drop the recipe! Please! I love avocado and pasta!🙏
I used this recipe except I used real pasta instead of the zucchini one she used: https://youtu.be/EpTK2x6twsw
THANK YOU SO MUCH!😩😩😩 I appreciate it. I’m gonna be eatin good.
You’re so welcome and let me know if you like it, it’s literally one of my favourite foods now!
I’m not using zucchini tho because I didn’t like it the last time I had it.
Yeah it’s not going to taste good in this mix. I skipped the zucchini too. Just pasta on its own tastes much better.
It’s an awesome quote and I so agree! Good for you you are eating healthy and abandoning the scale. Thank you so much for inviting everyone to the launch party. The more the merrier! Can’t wait to see you Pooja and thanks again for all of your help and spreading the word!
Thanks so much! Yes, hopefully we’ll have lots of people in the launch party! 😊
You’re so very welcome and yes, it will be fun! ❣️
Loved today’s quote!!
Never heard about avocado pasta before, but I guess now I have to try it out for a better *peach emoji* 😂
Virtual book launch, that seems interesting and something I’ve never been a part of. Excited to join, but first, I’ll have to check whether my time zone will allow me or not. 🥲
Avocado pasta is the best because it has the good kind of fat 😉
I think the time will be around 8:30 in India but double check and confirm 😊
I’ll try that for sure!!
Yes that’s 8:30 pm in India. Thanks!! 😌
Yay, glad I still remember the time difference lol 😅
Kudos to you!! Seems like you have a great memory.😌
That quote needs to be seen and heard by many. We lose out on such incredible ideas when people forego being themselves in pursuit of being someone else.
I’m curious, do you put anything extra in your avocado pasta or do you keep it plain. I know a lot of people (myself included) like to put in a little bit of extra stuff lol sometimes to my own detriment.
I very much agree. We we conform to the norms we are forcing ourselves into boxes we don’t necessary fit in.
Yeah, I need a little extra stuff too otherwise I find it a little blend. I usually add salt, black pepper, garlic, lemon and sometimes some onion.
Thanks for that motivational quote
Happy to share it. Thanks for commenting.
So true! I’ve seen the flipside of this too, people trying to be me haha. That’s pretty creepy.
Unfortunately I won’t be here Saturday because I’m out celebrating our 10 years of marriage but I hope the book launch party is a success!
Lol that’s so creepy. But at least that means you’re iconic 😅
Oh nice, happy anniversary in advance!
I just love Queen Latifah! Good on you for trying to eat healthy! I have definitely not been eating as well as I should but hopefully, I can get back on track.
Thank you so much! Hope you can get back to eating healthy too!
I’m drinking water this morning instead of the Cherry Coke that I really want! So that’s a start! 😆
That’s better than nothing lol!
Love this quote! I always am for empowerment of self. Healthy eating is an admirable goal. All the best Pooja.
Thank you so much!
Yes, I’ve tried to be extra careful with calories and fat and carbs. Still sometimes I have a craving that I just have to eat unhealthy food for a day. LOL. Yes, let’s concentrate on ourselves, know our strength, our interest etc. Recently I have been reading something about dysregulation of people who were victims of narcissistic parents. And I realize that most of my past feeling of “not being myself” or “not believing myself” is caused by the lingering trauma, not really by mistakes or superficiality or something else that I attributed my misspent life to. LOL.
I have cheat days too because it’s hard to stop eating junk food altogether lol.
Trauma is definitely a big part of what leads to feelings like that and low self-esteem.
Wise words from the Queen. 👑 Best wishes to you on your healthy eating. I haven’t had avocado pasta, but I enjoy black bean pasta. I follow a vegan diet, so I appreciate seeing more options like these.
Yes, very wise words from here.
Thanks, I love back bean pasta too. But definitely try avocado pasta, such a delicious combo. I’m vegan too 😊
Oh, you’ve tried it. Wonderful! I discovered it a few months ago. Sounded weird but it is delicious. I will look for your recommendation. Thank you, Pooja!
It tastes different but very good and a great way to get some extra protein into the meal. Have you tried seven grain or five grain pasta? That’s pretty good too.
I have tried that, yes. 😊 Do you do protein drinks?
Not often, I’ll occasionally add some protein powder to stuff but rarely 😅 What about you?
I try to drink one a day. 😊
That’s awesome, you do a lot of physical activity like dancing etc so it’s good to have more protein 😊
It is good, but sometimes I have to force myself. I don’t love the flavor. 😆 Thank you.
Lol that’s the problem I had too, the taste is kind of gross 🥲
It is and the texture isn’t great either! 😆
Lol true, it’s hard to swallow sometimes 😅
No doubt! 🤢 The healthier they are, the worse it seems. 😂
Just like with some foods lol 😆
Thank you for sharing ☺️
Thank you and happy to share it!
Thanks for the avocado tip😉! Oh! I enjoyed your recent vlog! Can’t wait for part 2.
Thank you and so glad you enjoyed it! Part two will be up by the end of the week! 😊
Thanks for the avocado tip😉!
And eating healthy can be quite the challenge at times. I need to learn a thing or two from you. Lol
Lol, it’s hard for me too but my family keeps me accountable 😅
“do you solemnly swear to stay in your lane, your own lane and nothing but your lane” 😁
I do… but why can’t others too 😋
lovely as always, Pooja 🤍
Hehe if only everyone would 😅
Thank you 😊
my pleasure 🤍
Queen Latifah is an inspirational person. Thanks for sharing the quote.
She absolutely is, thank you.
Love the quote…..
Hey it’s good to know that you doing good and eating healthy.
Try to eat more girl, you eat very less…
The fact you told about avocado pasta sounds fun 🤭
Thanks so much, I know I’m trying to take in more calories but it’s not been easy 😫
I was thinking if you are intolerant with some food 🤔
For now stick to green veggies and fruits. You know the rest.
Do less experiments on your body wih food 🤭
I’m intolerant to some types of oil and carrots because I hate carrots lol.
Well I hope you avoid them
Also avoid experiments 😝
I like and agree with this quote. It’s that reminder many constantly need.
Thanks and I totally agree.
It is rumored that Aristotle never actually said, “If you always stay in your own lane, one day the bridge will be out and you’ll crash into the river. Better to go off-road into the forest but don’t eat any gingerbread cookies made by a witch with oil and lard. You should wash your Hãnsel of it and not reGretel “
Lol of course, no one like to reGretel…
Love the quote! She’s so strong!
Speaking of book reviews, I just finished your previous book reviewed book, “The Housemaid.” Wow! Incredible, suspenseful, book with many twists and turns that you don’t see coming! The one I did see coming was his mother’s connection. Two words: generational sin. Great book, though! I completely get why you loved it! Thanks for the recommendation!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Yesss it has so many twists and personally I didn’t see the mother one coming but it totally made sense. I wish the sequel was as good but I found it a little boring 😔
That is an excellent and motivating quote, Pooja. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you so much, glad you enjoyed it.
You’re welcome, Pooja.
The older you get, the harder it is to stay in your own lane.
I’m starting to see that now that I’m like fully an adult.
Nice quote and really relatable. Staying in oneself is the best advice.
Thanks so much and I agree.
Excellent quote Pooja, and if anyone has followed her story, the hard knocks makes this quote more relevant to all of us. Thanks for the reminder about Cindy’s Launch Party. Have an awesome day! 🌞💞😘
She’s really an inspiring woman and absolutely love this quote. Thanks and have an awesome day too! 😊
You are so very welcome Pooja my dear! Cheers to you! 😍🥂😘
Never heard of avocado pasta! How is it made? Do you have a recipe? Sounds yumm!
It’s absolutely delicious, one of the easiest dishes too which I love. Here’s the recipe I used except I didn’t use the zucchini pasta I used regular pasta: https://youtu.be/EpTK2x6twsw
Thanks for the information Queen Pooja 😊
Always a pleasure reading your blogs.
Thanks, so glad you enjoyed it 😊
Hi Pooja, It feels good to be back after the holidays and catching up with the blogging community. May has started as an exciting month for me. Meeting my cousins, nephews, and nieces has been great. I tried avacado just once during lockdown. It’s definitely very healthy.
Glad you’re back to blogging now and sounds like you’re having quite a fun month so far.
I have never tasted avocado pasta! Sounds really good!
Today I ate meat and rice and avocado as a supplement. I really love avocado as it perfectly completes the dish.
Oh nice, yeah avocado complements most dishes!
Love me some Queen Latifah! Great quote💖
She’s awesome, love this quote by her too!
Love the quote, so wise, and best wishes for your healthy goal, Pooja. 🥰
Thank you so much 🥰
Queen Latifah’s quote is inspiring. It’s great that you’re attending Cindy Georgakas’ book launch party, and I hope everyone has a wonderful time.
Thanks so much. It was amazing.
That quote is good advice and I wish more people took it.
I absolutely agree and feel the same way. The world would be a better place if more people understood this.
Things tend to go in cycles. Maybe we’ll eventually live in a culture where it’s more common!
I hope so too!
