I shared this on Instagram and Facebook couple of weeks back! I know!! I am the worst. But hey here I am finally. So you know one of those days when you feel like you are scrambling for air? This is it. I have been having those kind of days. Frankly speaking, not too happy about it. I prefer life to be fast but peaceful, hectic but still have some time to pause, sit and play with my child. These last few days have been maddening, in a good way though, so can’t (rather shouldn’t really complain).

Pro of being busy – you are happy that you are working on something you love, you are too occupied to bother about others.

Cons – You usually sacrifice food to squeeze in some more work! I know I do. It isn’t really healthy to be skipping meals, so I seriously hope you wont. I also realised I cant diet to save my life!! By the time it was 4 pm, my stomach was growling in a manner that makes tigers and bears seem tame! After a quick check in the refrigerator I decided to wing it and make this simple but so comforting sesame tofu noodle bowl. Check out these two recipes if you are interested more of one bowl meals.
