Olympic Fever

With the Olympics winding down (well done to team G B, 67 medals and second in the league table) it is easy to get inspired to try a new sport or activity either to get fit or for just plain enjoyment.

History makers

These guys and gals know what it takes to keep motivated.

Here are just a few history making moments.

Dipa Karmakar became the first Indian female gymnast ever to represent her country in the Olympics, and the first Indian gymnast at all to do so in 52 years. She attained 4th position in Women’s Vault.

This year saw the first time refugees have been able to compete. They did so under the Olympic flag instead of one country.

Did you know?

Created by Pierre de Coubertin in 1914, the Olympic flag contains five interconnected rings on a white background. The five rings symbolize the five significant continents and are interconnected to symbolize the friendship to be gained from these international competitions. The rings, from left to right, are blue, yellow, black, green, and red. The colours were chosen because at least one of them appeared on the flag of every country in the world.

Hope you enjoyed the rice quiz.  This was the first in a series of food facts so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to test yourself in the future.

Remember plain rice contains little fat, and no cholesterol so can be a useful part of your diet.

Here at Anar Kali we have six types of rice (including vegetable, special fried and pilau) for you to enjoy and accompany a wide range of dishes.
