How to Deal with Hunger?

I go through phases with my appetite. Generally, it’s fine but every other month or so, it goes completely out of whack. I am not the one to suppress my hunger but it gets really frustrating when you feel hungry ALL THE TIME. I generally know when my body is truly hungry vs. I am fake hungry and lately have been dealing with the latter so I wanted to share a few things that I have experienced while dealing with fake hunger. Fake hunger is when you are still hungry after a meal or a snack because either you did not eat a balanced meal, you are thirsty, or stressed/emotional/bored. I am one of those people who likes to eat meals around the same time but recently, my stomach is acting like a bottomless pit. Since I do not function well if I am hungry (and I don’t want to keep feeding my bottomless pit), I have been using these tips to deal with hunger.

How to Worry Less?

I worry a lot about stuff – be it  important, unimportant, small, or big.  My dad thinks I am constantly looking for things to worry about even when it’s not warranted. While he’s partly true (okay mostly true – Hi Dad) I am a worrier by nature so it’s really hard for me to not…

Brown Chickpea Salad {kalo chana ko tarkari}

This past weekend I had a relaxing afternoon/evening with my friend (and a group of her friends) BBQ’ing at a lake.
