Sunshine Smoothie

We all know that smoothies are a part of our everyday diet now and for good reason. It’s quick, it’s filling, it usually has a couple of our daily dose of fruits and veggies and the obvious health benefits. The most important plus for me, are the colours. They are unbelievably beautiful and you just want to have a glass. Being from a country that predominantly runs on brown beverage, this new entrant is a revolution in techni color. This one, is an immunity boosting and skin friendly drink with its dose of vitamin C. With fasting season on, although we know now that occasional fasting is good for us, including this in the evening will help take those benefits further.

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
