Here are a few ways to keep your dil and dimaag thanda
They are by far the easiest thing to make and super yummy!
you can experiment with any fruit
what you will need
•Popsicle moulds ( very easily available In the market )
juice the watermelon put the juice in the moulds and let it freeze.
Things you can add
you can also add some mint leaves to this, makes it yummier!
Another awesome combination is lemon and basil ( my mouths watering already )
throw in some chunks of fruits into your Popsicles to get an awesome brain freeze
The most easiest and refreshing drink to have in the summer is Nimbu Paani
I’m going to share a healthy version of nimbu Paani with you today
What you will need ( per glass serving )
• 1 lemon
• black salt
• jeera powder
• organic gud
in a glass of water squeeze one lemon, add about 2tbsps of Gud, a pinch of black salt, jeera powder and mix
shred about half a small size apple and add to the nimbu Paani
also add a few mint leaves.
Apparently it gives you wings!
So skip red bull switch to a healthy red bull instead.
the power drink is made of fresh hibiscuse petals from Hideout
you can place an order for the pulp that we make an sell and easily make this drink at home
What you need
•sweetener ( honey )
call 9920640815 to place orders for the hibiscus pulp

We decided to start blogging and since non of us are born writers we were always hesitant to start blogging, but then we decided to give it a shot.
So here we go!
As most of you know we run an Organic Farm and a homestay called Hideout and we run it as a family.
We moved here as a family about a year ago, before that we stayed in Bombay.
We’re a family of five and they include
Hemant (The dad)
Sangeeta (the mom)
Anicca (that’s me )
Aditya (the bhaiya)
And the most energetic member of our gang…
Ayaana (the youngest of us all)
Not to miss our family also consists of a few Cats and Dogs, some of you already know about them while the rest of you will surely meet them when you visit Hideout.
Since not all of us farm (speaking about myself specifically ) we decided to blog about whatever interests us, as we all have our own set of interests and we hope that interests and helps you in a way too
Planted tress not for the greed for food but to build an Eco- system for all living.
Every year after the monsoon one noticed a big shift,starting with rats, white ants (termite), red ants,birds, centipedes,giant wood spider,frogs,crickets,snails & finally this year bees,billion other friends not named in our family.
