Lately, I’ve observed an upswing in raspberries. Generally, these red and juicy fruits are popular in the summer months. However, thanks to the an increase in production that includes overseas, these delicious and tasty berries will be available year round. Reports in the media state that maximum production has been up 475% this year.

Now, if you enjoy these fiber rich fruits, that’s music to the ears. Raspberries are also a rich source of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to the body. They are low in calories and make them excellent foods for keeping a slim waistline.

As a result, a couple of days ago, I stock up on a bountiful batch of the bright-red berries. I couldn’t resist the freshness. And of course, because abundance is high, the price was quite competitive compared a few months ago. I’ll be stocking up and freezing for later.

A little tip bit:-  To prevent the growth of mold on berries, including raspberries, rinse only at consumption. And, try to consume within a few days as the shelf life associated to them is very short.

I’m happy……Ho, Ho, Ho!!

Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
