Welcome to a new friend: Chenni = Cheeni Thoughts

Cheeni Thoughts

a lifestyle blog!

I was born and raised in Pakistan. Before , after and during  my Masters in Marketing from London , I had started Cheeni Thoughtsworking. By the time I turned 25, I had worked in 3 continents of the world: Asia, Europe and North America.

I am a daughter, sister, advertising professional, masters in marketing, avid fashionista, devoted foodie, graduate in economics and finance, certified personal shopper and fashion stylist, self-proclaimed poet, curious traveler, music buff, friend and one of the most random and memorable person you would ever meet.

As a child, I wanted to be a pilot, doctor, scientist, actress, air hostess until my father said that my aim should be to become a good human being and that’s exactly what I am striving to be.

Hello, I am Cheeni (which literally means sugar in Urdu) and I am here to share my thoughts and experiences about anything and everything! From Cheeni Thoughts and Beyond…

Welcome to Cheeni Thoughts – A Lifestyle Blog!

Bananas are NOT just for Monkeys!

Monkey bananaI had boycotted bananas for a long time before I began training. On the strict orders of my instructor I started having a banana between lunch and training. Frankly speaking, I love them now owing to their numerous health benefits and NO! I am not even a monkey. Not yet…

Here is quick look at how beneficial bananas are for the human body and otherwise:

Source of Fibre

A single banana has about 3 grams of fibre. Dietary fibre helps in feeling fuller longer and also keep digestive processes running efficiently.

Satisfy your sweet tooth

An average banana has 110 calories and can fulfill your sweet tooth cravings without ruining your diet and training.

 Potassium

As per a research by Colorado State University, potassium is essential for a smooth nerve and muscle function. It also facilitates the balance of fluids in the body along with preventing painful cramps after rigorous exercise.

An average banana has approximately 400 mg potassium packed in it!

Fat & Cholesterol

 Bananas are completely free from any fat and cholesterol and are a great natural and healthy diet!

Digestibility

Mashed bananas are one of the most widely used baby foods especially when they are introduced to solid foods. They are easy to digest and a source of important nutrients when suffering from indigestion or a virus without straining the stomach too much.

 Manganese

 Manganese aids in bone health and speedy metabolism. Bananas are a great source of manganese, as one medium banana provides about 3 mg. Adults on average need 1.8 and 2.3 mg of manganese daily.

Carbohydrates

Carbs are instant energy. Eating a bananas before  or after a workout is the best way to feel energized!

 Vitamin C & Vitamin B-6

 An average banana has 10 mg of vitamin C which boosts immune system, cell health and improves and facilitates the absorption of other nutrients.

Our body needs vitamin B-6 to grow new cells. An average banana supplies 35% of daily B-6 requirement

Overcomes Depression & helps in reducing PMS symptoms

Bananas help combat depression due high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin ( the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter).

Moreover, it not only lifts  your mood but also  reduce PMS symptoms, as it regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation. You listening ladies? ;-)

Bananas

Other benefits

  • Banana skin relieves against itching as a result of insect bites.
  • Bananas aid in lowering body temperature and can be eaten when running a fever or just to cool down on a hot day! ;)
  • It helps in quitting smoking as it contains high levels of potassium and magnesium which helps in quitting.
  • Helps in removing a wart by putting the inside of a banana peel on the wart and tapping it.
  • Rubbing the inside of banana peel on leather shoes and handbags makes them shine instantly!

 

Bananas can be eaten and used in multiple forms! A banana on its own, mixed in a fruit salad, as an ingredient in muffins (when you are not watching your calories as such), frozen yogurt, smoothies and the list is never ending!!! :)

They makes a great, healthy and a nutritious snack. Apart from this, from alleviating the mood to making your handbags/shoes shine! Bananas are awesome! And oh! who doesn’t like witnessing banana peel falls? :P Its been a while since I have been a spectator to one..

That’s it folks! Hope you are now looking at bananas in a different light!

 Remember! a banana day is surely enough to keep the doctor away…xxx

Istanbul, Turkey

Sunset - Istanbul

Sunset – Istanbul

I had been planning to go to Istanbul for ages. Finally, my dream shaped into reality as I landed in Istanbul with 4 other girl friends from all over the globe.

Istanbul is the largest city of Turkey and often referred to as the historic, cultural and economic hub which connects Europe to Asia. The city is mesmerizing.

Here is a list of my favourite places in Istanbul that you definitely should include in your ‘things to do in Istanbul’ list!

Blue Mosque or Sultan Ahmed Mosque

The mosque was built from 1609 – 1616 under the regime of Ahmed I. It is famously referred to as Blue Mosque because of the blue tiles on the walls of its interior. It is a popular tourist destination for both Muslims and non-muslims. It is open 24 hours a day there is no entry ticket. The magnificent architecture brings back memories of past glories and empires – the design is a combination of Ottoman and Byzantine eras.
