Ditch the sugar, keep the flavor! Sweet Potato Latte

You will be surprised by how many ways you can be creative in your kitchen to eat less or to avoid eating sugar all together in your everyday diet. There is no physiological need for any of us to eat refined sugars. We're hardwired to desire sweet foods meanwhile in a recent article in the British Medical Journal, sugar was described "as dangerous as tobacco". 

Sugar is empty calories, it adds to total calories, but provide no vitamins or minerals. It doesn't give you anything beneficial in your body. Eating less sugar is about preserving your health. I don't say you should omit sugar all together, keep your sugar life in moderation. Reducing its role in your life can benefit you and your loved ones.

My book Kids in the Swahili Mom Kitchen is coming soon. In this book you will find many recipes that I have created or modified to make them more healthy for your kids to enjoy like the Sweet potato latte, so tasty that you won't miss the sugar in this drink at all. 

Kids in The Swahili Mom Kitchen Book Coming soon!

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I was so excited to be doing this book. If you cook you can create your own recipes...Just because an ingredient is included in the recipe, you must use it..You can omit an ingredient all together or easily find a substitute or add other ingredients to make whatever you cook more healthy and appropriate for your kids.

My book KIDS IN THE SWAHILI MOM KITCHEN inspired by my daughter is soon coming out..This will help you so much to see how I have changed so many recipes and made it funny for my daughter who is a very picky eater to enjoy many foods and gets at least the recommended daily nutrients ...

Jifunze kuongea Kiingereza

Jifunze Kuongea Kiingereza.

Kitabu cha kujifunza kuongea Kiingereza kitapatikana hivi karibuni. Kitabu hiki nimeanza kukiandika kama miaka 6 iliyopita. Hii ni baada ya kuona ni jinsi gani watanzania wengi wanajifunza shuleni kiingereza lakini bado inakua vigumu kuongea au kusikia mtu akiongea kwa kiingereza.

Mimi sikusoma elimu ya msingi shule za  "ST " au "Academy". Shule ambazo zilikuwapo wakati nasoma bali zilikua nje ya uwezo wa wazazi wangu ni Arusha School, St Augustine na Kilimanjaro International School.  Pamoja na kuwa nilisoma mpaka form six Tanzania na nilikua kati ya wanafunzi tuliokua tunafanya vizuri (academically) lakini hiyo yote haikuweza kunisaidia kujua kuongea Kiingereza bila kuwa na uoga fulani au kutokueleweka.  Tatatizo hili lipo kwa wengi mpaka sasa kwa wale wanaosoma za serikali Tanzania.

Baada ya kuangalia ni kwanini tunajifunza kiingereza toka darasa la tatu lakini bado hatuwezi kuongea au kusikia watu wanaoongea kiingereza kwa ufasaha  nikagunduua ni jinsi gani tunavyofundishwa na ni jinsi gani tunastahili kufundishwa. Kuna sheria nyingi za kingereza ambazo mwanafunzi anatakiwa kuzijua ambazo hatufundishwi. Kuna tofauti ya kutamka lugha mbalimbali ambazo hatuambiwi wakati tunapofundishwa hivyo wengi hufukiria au huongea kiingereza kwa kutumia sheira za lugha ya kiswahili....

Lugha ya kiingerea ni lugha zinazojulika kuwa kati ya lugha rahisi kujifunza. Wataalamu wanasema inahitaji masaa 600 tu kuweza kuongea kabisa Kiingereza.  Hivyo nilianza kuangalia jinsi wanavyofundisha watoto na pia wale wanaosoma English as a second language. Kitabu changu pia ni baada ya kujifunza lugha tatu (spanish, german na french) na kuangalia wao wanafundisha vipi hizi lugha kwa watu wengine? Nini tofauti ya hizi lugha na kiingereza? Hivyo kitabu changu kitaweza kukufundisha kuongea Kiingereza kwa waswahili wengi. Kitabu hiki kimetengenezwa kwa kufuata kiinereza cha wamarekani. Ila ukishaweza kuongea kiingereza cha marekani hata kiingereza cha waingereza au waaustralia utaongea bila matatizo. 

Utaelewa siri mbalimbali wanazotumia walimu wanaofundisha wanafunzi hapa wasioongea kingereza. Ni nini kitakusaidia wewe kuongea na kusikia kiingereza mapema. Ni ini kitakusaidia kuongeza speed ya kiingereza unachoongea haraka. Ni nini kinakukwamisha kuongea kiingereza kwa ufasaha...


Kwanini ujifunze kuongea Kiingereza?

Swahili for Teens Book by #SwahiliMom #SwahiliforTeens..

When I had my daughter I thought she would pick up Swahili language just like that....Noo it has been that easy so far...When I am asked to teach Swahili language to some kids of the parents who are from Tanzania or Kenya,  I see many teens that do not speak a word  in Swahili language? At first I used to wonder why but with the hectic life our kids end up in day cares or be with nannies that do not speak Swahili language at very young ages. Time to interact with our children nowadays seems to be less and less so interacting with them in Swahili language is not even practical that much. Many children end up miss  learning the language.

If you would like to help your grown up child to speak more Swahili language then get my book.The book is designed for teens and will never let them get bored..


Swahili for Teens is available now in paperback and in kindle edition...http://www.amazon.com/Swahili-Teens-Pauline-Mandari-ebook/dp/B00NX11L4C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1412088534&sr=8-1&keywords=Swahili+for+Teens
