Mango Twist😋

 

img_4593

Ain’t it just perfect when you get what you pay for ? It surely is ! So we headed to Fraiche (Sector 8, Chandigarh)today and loved it to the core. They add no water , no milk – you get the pulp and juice of the fruit drink you order. They put sugar on demand else retain the natural sweetness or add honey if it tastes sour.Sounds perfect already,right? They have this really nice variety of detox water available too. Then they have snack and chocolate bars available with clear description of nutritional value. With facility of home delivery I won’t hold back from calling it a one stop destination to shop all your fitness food goodies.

The store today however looked a little unkempt to me.The snack packets looked ignored and dusty.However , it has a nice outlook with artificial grass and artificial fruits put around.

Details of the drink I ordered:

Mango Twist ( INR 150): A combination of pineapple, mangoes , orange,ginger and honey. Loved the hit that presence of ginger gave.

Verdict: Excellent.

Experience the New and Improved Domino’s pizzas

The big news is finally here for all pizza lovers! Domino’s #BadalGaya and for the good! 😀

Like most QSR chains, Domino’s compromised a bit on quality and focussed on the ‘fast food’ concept leading to the development of some concerns amongst its patrons. Domino’s took the feedback very seriously and has come up with Domino’s v2.0!

Here are the highlights:

  • Softer Crust:

Remember leaving the sides/crust of your slice? You needn’t now as the crust is evidently softer, fresher and tastier

  • More Toppings:

Take a close at these images to notice the larger chunks and increased quality…yippiee! Well, not a sham anymore

  • More Cheese:

Oh yes, that’s true! We don’t think you would need to order cheese burst crust to satiate your cheese craving any more 😛 Cheese and toppings till the crust now

  • Tastier Sauce:

A more personalized touch to the sauce and how it would taste at home. More herby, tangy, better quantity and quality

Calm down guys, you don’t have to pay a bomb to get these pizzas as they have kept the pricing almost the same! Crazy, right?

Health Benefits of Horseradish

Okay so before we proceed further i am sorry for running the image of horses and elephants through your mind.Oh yes ! horse radish has nothing to with the horses it has to do with humans. In fact , quite ironically this ingredient acts a poison for horses.

What Is Horseradish ?

To put it in very simple terms to clarify to Indian readers-it is basically a exotically grown radish.It has stronger pungent smell,its more citric and consequently more effective.It is used extensively in sauces, spreads and as spices.As an ingredient it gives out a sour taste to the dish.Mostly popular in western nations it is making its way extensively throughout the world because of the medicinal benefits that flow from it.This root vegetable is very strong in its flavors and odor, consequently difficult to consume raw.It is therefore used in combinations.The most popular being with mustard. However,it is anyways available as sauce and now also comes in fancy flavors like beetroot horseradish sauce etc.

Benefits of Horseradish

  1. Increases Immunity-The concentration of Vitamin-C in horse radish is considerably high.This aids the production of white blood cells thus, enhancing the immune system.It has also been found helpful in preventing cancer.
  2. Enhances Metabolism-Various chemicals in horseradish in their various combination display anti-oxidant qualities.This aids digestion of food.Horseradish acts as panacea for those with slow-bowel syndrome (complicated stage of constipation).
  3. Super Effective Weight Loss Aid –This horseradish powder can be used with other ingredients to form a paste.This paste can be eaten basically swallowed in the morning with warm water for great results.Here is how you can make this paste- Take 125 gm horseradish powder and grind it with 3 tbs honey,3 tbs ginger and 3 unpeeled and seedless lemons.Refrigerate the paste and consume with warm water every morning.

WHAT IS GST?

gst

 

Goods & Service Tax or GST is a value added tax which will subsume and replace all the current indirect taxes levied in India. Hailed as one of the biggest fiscal reforms in the country, GST will be applicable to all businesses, small and large. With GST, there will be no scope for variable taxation anymore and the entire nation will follow a unified tax structure.

GST will be levied on both goods and services. India will follow a dual system of GST to keep the Centre and State fiscally independent of each other. The GST Council, consisting of the Union Finance Minister and various State Finance Ministers, has devised a four-tiered tax structure for the country with tax slabs of 5%, 12%, 18%, and 28% for different categories of products.

KEEP FOLLOWING FOR MORE UPDATES REGARDING GST.

Which Taxes will GST Replace?

It will replace all the following taxes and bring them under one umbrella to make compliance easier:

(i) Taxes currently levied and collected by the Centre:

  1.  Central Excise duty
  2.  Additional Duties of Customs (commonly known as CVD)
  3.  Special Additional Duty of Customs (SAD)
  4.  Service Tax

AND

(ii) Taxes currently levied and collected by the State:

  1. State VAT
  2. Central Sales Tax
  3. Entertainment and Amusement Tax (except when levied by the local bodies)
  4. Taxes on lotteries, betting and gambling

GST Framework

  • India will follow dual form of GST (like Canada and Brazil)
  • At the intra-state level (goods/services are sold within the state)- CGST (Central Goods and Services Tax) and SGST (State Goods and Services Tax) will be levied
  • At the inter-state level, IGST (Or Integrated Goods and Services Tax) shall be levied.
  • Imports shall be considered as inter-state supply and IGST will be applicable. However, basic customs duty will apply on imports
  • Exports shall be zero-rated.
  • Supplies to SEZ will be zero-rated

Benefits of GST

An important benefit of the introduction of GST will be the removal of the cascading tax effect. In simple words “cascading tax effect” means tax on tax.

Under the current regime, service tax paid on input services cannot be set off against output VAT. Under GST, input tax credit can be availed smoothly across goods and services thus reducing the tax burden and removing cascading effect.

Also, the current tax regime has excise VAT and service tax, each of which has their own returns and compliances. GST will unify all these reducing the number of returns and compliances.

Taxable Person

A ‘taxable person’ under GST, is a person who carries on any business at any place in India and who is registered or required to be registered under the GST Act.

GST registration is mandatory for (amongst others)-

  • Any business whose turnover in a financial year exceeds Rs 20 lakhs (Rs 10 lakhs for North Eastern and hill states)
  • Input service distributor (see below)
  • E-commerce operator or aggregator
  • Person who supplies via e-commerce aggregator

GSTIN

An expected 8 million taxpayers will migrate from various platforms into GST. All of these businesses will be assigned a unique Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN). But most are yet not aware of the new registration process and the identification number.

Each taxpayer will be allotted a state-wise PAN-based 15-digit Goods and Services Taxpayer Identification Number (GSTIN). PAN is absolutely mandatory for GST. A person without PAN must first obtain a PAN before registering for GST.

Reverse Charge

Normally, the supplier pays the tax on supply. In certain cases, the receiver becomes liable to pay the tax, i.e., the chargeability gets reversed which is why it is called reverse charge.

The concept of reverse charge mechanism is already present in service tax. In GST regime, reverse charge will be applicable for goods (new) as well as services.

Mixed Supply & Composite Supply Under GST

This is a new concept introduced in GST which will cover all supplies made together, in a bundle, whether the supplies are related or not. The concept of composite supply in GST regime is similar to the concept of bundled services under Service Tax Laws. However, the concept of mixed supply is entirely new.

Composite Supply

Composite supply means a supply comprises two or more goods/services, which are naturally bundled and supplied with each other in the ordinary course of business, one of which is a principal supply. The items cannot be supplied separately.

Mixed Supply

Mixed supply under GST means two or more individual supplies of goods or services, or any combination, made together with each other by a taxable person for a single price. Each of these items can be supplied separately and is not dependent on any other.

Continous supply

The goods/services are supplied periodically and the payments are also made periodically, often monthly. For example, supplying bricks to builders is a continuous supply of goods because there will be a periodic supply for a long time.

Telecom and internet services provided by telecom companies are other examples of continuous supply of services.

GST Compliance Rating

According to the model GST law, refund claims under the GST regime will also be processed on merit basis, i.e on the GST compliance rating of the registered taxpayer. It is expected that certain slabs rates will be maintained for various taxpayers falling under various bandwidths of compliance rating and the instant refunds will be made in terms of percentage amount based on the individual rating of the taxpayer. For example, a taxpayer with rating 8 will get 80% instant refund.

Are you having your Green Tea the correct way? Read on to make the most of your cup

Green Tea has become a part of our routine due to its health benefits (primarily weight loss  😉 ) but, have you been making the most of your cup?  Read some quick tips to make your dose of green tea target the right way!

Best ways to have Green tea:

  • If you have a sensitive stomach, refrain from having a lot of green tea as it is alkaline in nature and can result in the release of a lot of gastric acid causing irritation. Stick to one cup a day.
  • Similarly, green tea shouldn’t be had early morning on empty stomach as release of gastric acid can cause stomach upset or even ulcers.
  • Avoid taking Green Tea at meal time because it can reduce the absorption of Thiamin (vitamin B).
  • Green tea is best had in between meals to maximize the effect of antioxidants (majorly Catechin) as the metabolism is at its highest that time.
  • Green tea should be had at least one hour before going to bed at night. This will prevent waking up for urination and also activate weight loss while asleep.
  • Don’t buy flavored green tea or add sugar. Green tea, if had for health benefits such as weight loss, should be had as is. Any flavoring or sugar defeats the purpose as flavors also have some sugar in them and are artificially made.

Excess of everything is bad and the same applies for green tea. One should not have more than 2.5 cups of green tea in a day.
