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.

6 dessert-makers that are sweetening up the festive season the vegan way | Vegan Dubai Dessert Edition

If you ask me, the absolute best gifts are edible (wink wink)! Given the situation, if you can’t meet your loved ones this Diwali, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than by sending over a box of vegan desserts. I barely know anyone who could say no to a box of cupcakes sprinkled and frosted to perfection or, better yet, freshly made donuts slathered with custard and cream. So, unless you have a bunch of diabetics on your holiday-gift lists, the fresh-made vegan treat idea is a good one. Even more better, if you are craving some sugary treats during this festive season, spare the milk and get your hands on some truly delicious vegan desserts. They're guilt-free, cruelty-free, and finger-licking good and you won't be short of choices at all. From the online pros and specialty bakers to the best dessert shops in town, here I have listed the 6 best vegan desserts in Dubai to gift this festive season.    il Donaccino Diwali Special Vegan Donut Box It's been a bit o

BEST FAIRTRADE VEGAN CHOCOLATES IN DUBAI  YOU WON'T FEEL GUILTY EATING

BEST FAIRTRADE VEGAN CHOCOLATES IN DUBAI YOU WON'T FEEL GUILTY EATING

The truth behind the chocolate is anything but sweet.  What if I told you that for every bite of that sweet delicious chocolate that you eat you have the hand of a child slave to thank? The cocoa farming has a long history of trafficking, child labor and slavery, and the practice still continues. Chocolate behemoths like Nestlé, Hershey's, Godiva and Mars are part of these inhumane activities because they directly or indirectly buy cocoa beans sourced in such conditions. Hundreds of thousands children are enslaved on cocoa farms, where they are trafficked, unable to leave, and forced to work with little to no pay. Irony is that almost all of these kids who work in cocoa farms have never even tasted chocolate. Forget chocolate, even getting one decent meal is a luxury for them and they work for over 100 hrs on an average every week on the farm.  The adult farmers who work in the cocoa farms are also not provided living wages and have to work for over 18 hours in gruesome conditions

Quinoa Cutlet with Hummus: Easy High Protein Vegan Recipe

Quinoa Cutlet with Hummus: Easy High Protein Vegan Recipe

But what about protein? Do vegans get enough protein in their diet? Its a shame, even today people think that protein is an issue on a vegan {or even a vegetarian} diet when it absolutely is not. It's a myth propagated by the meat and dairy industry, perhaps. You can get more than enough protein on a plant-based diet. Today I am sharing one of my favorite protein rich vegan recipes - Quinoa Cutlet with Hummus. This easy vegan meal packs great for lunch, picnics, and even travel. Quinoa is one of my favorite goods and I especially love it for its versatility. You can cook it as a salad , replace it with rice, add it to burrito bowls or chilli and even make quinoa porridge or quinoa upma for breakfast . Most importantly, it is a nutrition powerhouse. Quinoa, which is technically a seed but is classified as a whole grain, is not only packed with myriad of vitamins and minerals but is also a great source of protein. In fact, quinoa is one of the few foods that is a  complete pro

Ultimate Immune Boosting Turmeric Tea

Ultimate Immune Boosting Turmeric Tea

For over 5 years, I start my day with my immune boosting turmeric tea. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know my love turmeric tea and turmeric latte. After so many requests from you, I am finally putting together the ultimate Immune Boosting Turmeric Tea recipe that I have perfected over the years. Turmeric has been used in Ayurveda as a medicine for centuries to treat wounds, infections, colds, liver diseases and other health issues. The curcumin compound found in turmeric is majorly responsible for its healing properties. Research has proven that curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. I always add black pepper in my turmeric tea and lattes, and here's why. On its own, turmeric is notorious for having poor bioavailability, meaning it is not well-absorbed by the body. However, black pepper contains the bioactive compound piperine, which is known to boost the absorption of curcumin by ~2000 per c

Easy Vegan Chilli Recipe With Simple Ingredients

Easy Vegan Chilli Recipe With Simple Ingredients

Here is the ultimate vegan chili recipe with a chocolaty twist (literally). It’s simple, requiring just a few basic ingredients, and comes together in less than 1 hour. For this recipe, I have only added kidney beans, which are especially high in iron and vitamin B1, but you can also add red lentils, black beans or even quinoa. This chili has a thick stew-like texture and uses only tomatoes, ginger, peppers, green chili and celery among the vegetables. You can skip celery if you don't have and add pumpkin or play around with vegetables you have in your kitchen. However, tomatoes is a mandatory as its the base of the recipe. This recipe is really simple to make, needs no super chef skills. While it does take some time to cook, if you really want all the flavors to come together. I cooked it for about an hour, but if you are short of time, cut down on cooking time. Also, I like to use all fresh ingredients and I don't use any packaged food, so right from the tomatoes to

Creamy Mango & Strawberry Smoothie Bowl: Healthy Breakfast Treat

Getting the perfect creamy texture in the smoothie brings great joy. And when it tastes like heaven in a bowl, it almost makes your day. Don't you agree? Smoothies are a great healthy breakfast option. They're ridiculously easy to make, filled with fruits and veggies (aka nutrition), and are ready in just a few minutes. I am all about the MANGOES right now. They are in season and make a great base for smoothie - they're creamy, sweet and add amazing flavor. Did you know that mangoes are packed with nutrition? They're high in fiber, and are good source of vitamins A and C. They also contain folate, B6, iron and are packed with antioxidants. Mango and berries have been my favorite smoothie ingredients lately - I AM OBSESSED with the combination. To make a perfect smoothie bowls, you need to make sure you have the right toppings that are artfully stacked above the smoothie. You can play around with any toppings of your choice. You just need to make sure they comple

Vegan Atta Halwa - Simple Yet Truly Delicious Indian Dessert

Vegan Atta Halwa - Simple Yet Truly Delicious Indian Dessert

It is the lockdown situation, which means we are all craving for good food, and those of us who are away from home are reminiscing mom-made food. I love my mom's and granny's aata halwa, and honestly missing it.  When it comes to Indian desserts, its hard to replicate many of them in vegan form. For example, vegan rasgulla - I am yet to get my hands on one of those. But thankfully, halwas can be easily veganised and if cooked properly, with right ingredients, they taste like the real deal.  The trick to making a good vegan wheat halwa is to ensure you add good amount of saffron and cardamom for flavor. This will overpower the smell of oil and give you the authentic taste.  I always ground the saffron in a mortar and pestle with hot water first, to release its flavor, before adding to the halwa. It makes all the difference.  Another thing is, use the oil that has more neutral flavor and freshly extracted is better. We have an oil extraction machine at home,
