About Me

My photo
Style Destino is my personal style space bout cruelty-free and vegetarian style. Fashion is not above someone's life and it is irresponsible when someone makes a fashion choice that involves taking a poor animal's life. I believe in style that has a conscience. We are in 21st century where technology has advanced immensely, there are myriad options available and any person with a desire can make things happen. So it is sheer selfishness and irresponsible behaviour when people make unethical fashion choices. Through StyleDestino I share everything cruelty-free and ethical in my style. I do not use any handbags, shoes or accessories made from leather (animal skin), the make-up I use is also vegetarian and cruelty free. Luxury and compassion can coexist stylishly and Style Destino is an attempt to prove just that. Vegan fashion is not about dowdy clothes, cheap bags, or tawdry shoes. I can just easily be vegan and trot in my Olsen heels, sporting a Stella McCartney luxurious vegan handbag while showing off my red lips painted with OCC lip tar!! I travel the world around and never find dearth of stylish, high quality vegetarian fashion.

Avocado Soup for Midi Skirt

Spring Look Yellow Midi Skirt Style Destino
Zara Crop Top, Asos Midi Skirt, Stella McCartney Grace Bag & Steve Madden Shoes

It doesn't matter how hard you work in the gym, if you don't control what you put on your plate. Unfortunately, I've been off track on my workout routine for quite sometime. And with Spring already making its way, its hard to resist wearing the crop tops and midi skirt - now isn't that an irony.

So when the excitement of Spring-coming takes away your sanity and you incessantly start accumulating clothes that's not right for your body shape, what do you do? Start with the basics - clean eating.

Situation - busy days, no time to workout, need to get back in shape
Those days when you've been super busy and don't get enough time to workout and you're stressed, and you just need to eat something that tastes good at the same time that'll keep you away from putting on all those extra kilos? That's what this Avocado rice and avocado soup is about - delicious and super healthy. I've been experimenting with a lot of healthy food, while salads have been my favourite {since forever} I tried experimenting healthy cooked meal and bang I ended up with this interesting soup and rice.

Let's call it goodness in a bowl {that'll allow me to wear the crop top, despite not being working out}.

Healthy Recipe - Lose Weight - Avocado Soup and Red Rice

Vegan Red Rice - Healthy Recipe

Avocado Soup

  • Butter (very little quantity to sautee)
  • 1/2 table spoon olive oil
  • 4 leaves of Lettuce
  • 1 avocado
  • Vegetable stock (I used one raw banana, 8 beans beans, 1/4 bottle gourd, 2 tomatoes, 2 celery sticks for preparing the stock)
  • Lemon juice
  • Parsley (use some to be blended with the soup and set aside for garnishing on the top)
  • 20 pine nuts (toasted dry and crushed)
  • Salt and black pepper as per taste
  • Grated coconut

  1. Heat the butter and oil in a saucepan, and add the lettuce. Cook for a few minutes until the lettuce is just beginning to caramelize on the edges. 
  2. Add avocado, vegetable stock, lemon juice, parsley and pine nuts, and bring to a gentle simmer. Mash the avocado in the pan.
  3. After about five minutes, remove from the heat and use an immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth. Make sure there are not any lumps remaining. Season to taste, and return to the heat if necessary.
  4. Serve topped with parsley and grated coconut.
While my sister loved it as is, I thought it tasted a little bland, so I added this special home made spice made from over 16 spices including whole dry red chillies, dried mango powder, coriander seeds, turmeric powder (haldi), black salt , cumin seeds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, asafoetida. It gave the soup an interesting flavour, you can find your own thing if you feel the need to add something.

For the rice, I used the same vegetable stock from the soup as the base but added fresh cubed avocado, parsley, more beans (little sauteed) and mixed it together with cooked red rice. Topped it with fresh lemon juice.

Vegan Avocado Soup

While I am not about following a certain trend, or a rigid archetype, but after seeing the rounds crop tops have been making everywhere fashion, I have been literally standing on a foot to get hold of one and wearing it, and crop top brings back a hell lot of memories from my teenage days. I used to sneak out wearing a (really) cropped top {yes in days when wearing even a non-sleeved shirt would scandalise people} paired with a skirt strolling down every part of the town. Ahhh those days. So obviously now that they're {crop tops} back on the fashion radar I had to have one. But times have changed and I am not my skinny self at this point in my life.

Nevertheless I made my best effort to make sure nothing but only the right food enters my stomach. And One month of clean eating and a little bit of workout has helped me to muster the courage to clad myself in my spring buys {the crop top and midi skirt). Pulling out the pieces all I could think was, "Will I fit in those? I hope I don't look fat in it." While I was not too pleased with how I looked (there are so many problem areas), it didn't look as bad in the picture and the angle my photographer used for the picture made it blog-worthy. BTW I ordered that yellow midi skirt from Asos and was pleasantly surprised by their free delivery to India this time around.
