These days everyone is talking about fitness, health, and overall wellness. People are now gaining an awareness of what they put in their bodies. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some of our traditional and favorite comfort foods, that with a few adjustments can even be categorized as healthy! Proving that it is not about being on a “diet”, but it is about adopting a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, today we are sharing our take on the traditional Emirati Dessert “Falooda”.
