10 Easy Steps To Make The Transition To Organic Lifestyle

We deserve health, quality and flavour.
What we do not deserve is junk, gene mutations, illness and replicas of the real thing!
Demand what is rightfully yours, #GoOrganic

No transition is ever challenge-free, that is why we usually need to take baby steps towards achieving a big change. If you are not already one, then Going Organic is a change and could come with challenges. For instance, there is a ton of information to learn, the challenge of finding organic products, and another of keeping with a budget... the question of whether or not to eat out, what to do when organic is not available...etc. These are just some of the questions I have been receiving from you, so I thought why not put together the 10 best practices for making the transition to Organic?

Here are my top tips:

#GoOrganic Shredded Beef Tacos & Pico de Gallo (My Way) - Eat Healthy but Don't Eat Boring

Shredded OBE Organic Beef Tacos
#GoOrganic - Eat Healthy, but Don't Eat Boring

Last Saturday I had promised the family a fun movie night at home and serving them a super fun dinner worthy of a fabulous movie night. Normally, everyone wants fun finger foods in a movie night and the preference is always 'diner-style' meals. Burgers, pizzas, chicken wings.... Since we are Going Organic, I wanted to show them that we can still eat fun, delicious, diner style food and still be healthy, organic meal. So I went to carrefour in MOE as I know they have the biggest variety OBE Organic beef and brought the ingredients for making a fabulous movie dinner of shredded beef tacos - my way with all the flavours that I like.

My daughter was very excited as she gets at any chance for her to cook with me, my son is happy with anything crunchy that also includes meat and the hubbs is a sweetheart who gets very excited about fun food, cooking together and is my biggest inspiration in the kitchen. Good family time, fantastic food, and Ace Ventura marathon (kids' brilliant choice)... doesn't get any better. Honestly, while we had stayed in on Saturday, it was one of those days filled with so much fun that we decided it will become a more frequent activity.

The tacos were crunchy, superbly flavoursome and honestly, you will not want the experience to stop. The kids had them without the Pico and loved them, we had them with this gorgeous and spicy Salsa Fresca and we laughed all the way through as Jim Carrey is just phenomenally hilarious!

While we all ate dainty little tacos (but lots), Firas wouldn't settle for anything less than
an OBE Organic Shredded Beef Taco, Upsize! lol

Any takers? Here is the recipe...

All-organic Most Delicious Home-made BBQ Sauce - Now all you need is OBE Organic Beef and dinner is almost ready!

Home-made BBQ Sauce is for those who are big on creating new flavours
and really like to cook differently.
This is not mixing ready ingredients into a dish, this is creating a dish.

Who does not love a good dollop of BBQ sauce over their steak? Maybe even in their steak sandwich, or as a marinade for meats before they hit the grill? Did you know that BBQ sauce is one of the most used and best loved sauces in the world? Apparently it is and I must say, I am not surprised as I for one think it is delicious. If you like BBQ sauces, you are going to love this recipe, so read on and enjoy :)

“Social Bloggers vs. Social Journalists in the UAE: Perceptions of Credibility and Trust”

I am helping out some friends with their masters thesis and asking for your support. This shall not take more than 3 minutes of your time, and I would hugely appreciate your help.

The topic of their research is “Social Bloggers vs. Social Journalists in the UAE: Perceptions of Credibility and Trust”. In their research they are keen to find out whether blog readers perceive blogs as a credible source of information. The results of the research should form a solid foundation on where the social blogging scene stands compared to the social traditional print media (magazines and newspapers).  

As blog readers, the research depends on your thoughts and will not succeed without your help.. So please take a few moments and take this short survey, all you need to do is click on this link below and it will take you to the survey where you will answer a few questions.  This shouldn't take more than 3 minutes to complete.


Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully answering the survey questions :)
