It is really great to have you as a guest on oholav.com, can you please introduce yourself in case some of my readers don’t know you?
You successfully started and ran your own company with the label ISLY handbags, what was the secret behind your success? Why did you stop? And what was the biggest lesson you learned?
You now live in the US while you grew up in Pakistan. How did you raise your children?
How does a normal day in your life look like?
What do you typically cook/eat during a day (for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner)?
Breakfast for me is most often Greek yogurt with strawberries and dash of honey, always a salad with some protein (mostly chicken & sometimes fish) for lunch. Dinner – the kids love my shrimp tacos, club sandwiches or lasagna. And hubby, kids and I love Pakistani food so Qeema Mattar (ground beef or chicken with green peas cooked with ginger, garlic, turmeric, cumin, tomatoes & onions) served with rice, Daal (yellow or orange lentils) & Karahi Chicken (chicken cooked in a wok-like utensil called Karahi, with tomatoes, green chilies & cilantro and some more spices) & served with roti/naan and a side of mango chutney. Almonds, dates & sunflower seeds for snacks. And at least 2 cups of Lipton English tea a day.
