Came across the organic store “HappyHealthyMe” via Instagram. Happyheathymeorganic is a certified organic food brand and grocery store. They have two stores at Bangalore, Varthur Rd Whitefield and Indiranagar. There products are available at Bigbasket.com and Amazon.in.
The store conducts workshops about Healthy desserts and wholesome salads, healthy happy breakfast, cooking with millets and many more. For details and booking the slot visit eventshigh.com. I did attend few workshops. This payasam was a demonstrated at the “Wholesome Salad and Heathy Dessert” workshop. Swetha explained about basics of making salads and demonstrated few easy wholesome salad recipes that can be prepared in no time and healthy dessert recipes too ! We did enjoy some sample from the workshop. And I couldn’t wait to return home and prepare few healthy recipes that I learnt. Of course the first demand by kids (and adults) will be healthy dessert……
What can be more better way to start this festive season with a healthy dessert. Made this Amaranth payasam after attending the workshop at their store. Amaranth is rich in protein, calcium, and gluten free. Amaranth is a good source of manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and iron too. It releases a satiety hormone that regulates appetite and weight. Don’t forget to try out this super delicious and healthy payasam this festive season.
