Here’s A Healthy 2-Week Cleanse For People Who Love To Eat

Bon Appétit magazine’s fifth annual Food Lover’s Cleanse is here and it looks amazing — albeit a little intimidating — but SO DELICIOUS.


For the fifth year in a row, Bon Appétit has just published their post-holiday, get-healthy eating plan called The Food Lover’s Cleanse. It’s two weeks’ worth of recipes for breakfast, lunch, a snack, dinner, and dessert and it is similar to BuzzFeed’s Clean Eating Challenge, but written for a slightly different style of cook. (Disclosure: I created and edited the Food Lover’s Cleanse along with author Sara Dickerman when I worked at Bon Appétit for several years.) This year it looks even more beautiful and flavorful than ever before. Even if the idea of cooking every one of these recipes seems overwhelming, take a look at them because there are certainly some fantastic and smart ideas for combining flavors and using leftovers — and hopefully you’ll be convinced to follow along in full.

The cleanse starts this Friday, January 2, so you should get that shopping done (click for the full shopping list from Bon Appétit) asap.

Pineapple rava kesari is a tasty Indian recipe and is a combination of rava and pineapple. I just love pineapple kesari, infact I should say I like the pineapple flavor primarily because I love the fruit very much. So anything which has pineapple flavor in it , I would any day consider it as my favorite.

Pineapple Kesari is very famous in South India. You would find people serving Pineappple kesari mostly in all big functions like marriages as a sweet dish.

Recipe type: Sweet Dishes

Serves: 12

  • Rava(sooji/semolina) – ½ cup
  • Pineapple – ½ cup(chopped)
  • Sugar – ½ cup
  • Cashew nuts- 1 tbsp (chopped)
  • Raisins – 3 tsp
  • Almonds – 1 tbsp (finely chopped)

  1. Heat a tsp of oil and fry cashew nuts on low heat until golden brown and set aside.
  2. Take a pan, heat 1-2 tsp ghee and fry rava until you get the nice aroma.
  3. Take it out from the kadai and set aside.
  4. Now in the same kadai add sugar, water, pineapple pieces, cardamom powder along with 1 tsp of ghee and bring it to boil on a high flame.
  5. Let the pineapple cook properly.
  6. Add the kesar color.
  7. Now simmer and add the fried rava little by little into the boiling syrup water ensuring that the lumps are not getting formed.
  8. Add half of the fried nuts and ghee and stir properly.
  9. Cook for about 4-5 minutes till the rawa is cooked well and the water is absorbed.
  10. Now add rest of the ghee and mix well.
  11. Kesari is ready once the mixture leaves the sides of pan without sticking.
  12. Remove from the heat and garnish with the remaining fried cashew and raisins.
  13. Serve hot or cold.

You can store Kesari for 1 or 2 days in the room temperature and it can also be refrigerated for about 4-5 days.
Quantity of sugar and ghee is more important in this recipe to make proper kesari.
But if you want you can always add less sugar and ghee if you are health conscious.
