I begin my day with fresh fruit juice along with cereal; occasionally I also have poha, upma or idli. I have been following a healthy dietary plan recommended by my nutritionist and have been feeling energetic and radiant after having followed that for a couple of months now.
Lunch consists of salad, One green vegetable, daal / vegetable with gravy and chapatti. I refrain from eating foods containing sugar but to consume the right amount of needed sugar I eat a chikki after lunch.
I either nibble on a fruit or have some chivda.
Dinner consists of soup, Caesar salad, which I’m very fond of, and cold Bournvita milk.
I’m not allergic to any food item but I can’t see myself eating chicken or mutton.
I work out regularly and my exercise routine consists of 50 minutes of cardios and 20 minutes of floor exercises/ abs.
Please avoid fruit juice as it has no fibre. Eating the whole fruit instead provides more nutrients. Have a vegetable juice, especially of tomato as it is very healthy. Oats sweetened with organic honey, poha and upma with lots of vegetables are a good choice. Try uttapa with vegetables instead of idli. Avoid coconut chutney opt for green chutney instead.
Begin with a salad of raw vegetables and sprouts and chikki should be made of organic jaggery.
Have one fruit, thirty grams of nuts after a while — they contain protein as well as fat and are healthy for the brain. Avoid chivda.
Begin with a soup and a Caesar salad (made with fresh yoghurt as dressing and sprinkled with sunflower, flax, sesame seeds) Avoid milk.
Besides your routine work out practice yoga in fresh air. Drink water throughout the day. Use only cold pressed oils for cooking. Turn organic!
