Syrian Za'atar Notes
In a bowl add the minced garlic to the yogurt and salt to taste whisk the mixture together and keep in fridge till eggplant is ready.

My idea of a hot day is definitely one that includes cocktails. But for those concerned with calories, a good happy hour doesn't have to ruin your diet. Here are some of my favorite summer cocktails, all which clock in at under 200 calories. And we're not talking vodka sodas, either.
Getting a gorgeous, glowing complexion doesn’t only mean slathering on sunblock or the latest antioxidant serum (though that helps, too). It also means paying attention to your diet. By tossing nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables and other goodies into your blender, you can nab more beautifying foods that will nourish your skin from the inside, out.
Hi, my name is Himani and I’m a sugar addict. But the only thing that holds me back from devouring a sinful concoction is if it looks super cute. You know… because cute desserts deserve to live longer than the ugly ones (I’m going to some sort of sugar-y hell for that one).
