Notes

May use butter in place of ghee.

This can be easily converted into a pudding by placing in small dishes full and press then let the content on a plate.

Alternatively you may place the entire content on a plate spread it, shape it then cut into pieces as you prefer.

Spread a little ghee onto the containers, so that it won’t stick to them.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLE

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Eat more fruits and vegetables for your health and well being.
Several people advise to do so.
How many of us are adopting this?
One reason they become costlier day by day.
We have to buy them from the market.
We have no place to grow them all by our selves.

Let us have fruits for our break fast.
Only fruits and nothing else.
No making juice out of them adding sugar and water, it is useless.
Eat raw fruit removing the skin and seeds.
Other wise the purpose is lost.

Even in the case of vegetables, let us eat them raw, wherever possible.
Have them for the dinner.
Select the vegetables suitable for vegetable salad.
Don’t make salad.
Clean them, skin them, remove seeds and   Slice them.
You can add curd or yoghurt, however you call it.

In case of both you may add a little lime juice if you prefer but not with yoghurt.
Ban salt, sugar or cream.

You will feel lighter than ever within a few days.

Have your normal lunch as usual.
Better avoid oils, salt, chillies for the purpose of your health.

If you find your taste buds are strong and you require more variety of flavours.
OK!
Add whatever you want.
Eat whatever you want.
Just don’t worry about anything.
There is no limit for anything.
Be happy and be jolly.
