Food for the Gourmet

My Dinner some days!! 9I was 88 kg on 13th July'09 with a height of 5 ft 7 inches [i like to say 7.5 inches!!] so I got a target to reduce 26 kgs! I added 12 kgs in one year at Chennai with the Dosas and Idlis. and so now I am shrinking myself back to my Golden Old days.
Target= - 5kgs Per Month
Achvt 13th July- 13th Aug= - 2.5 kg [50%] Not bad for a compulsive Haldiram Snacks Eater!!
This is what I am eating. Just One half cup (I think 30 gms) of oats with three tsp of milk powder and water in morning; one apple (yeah 35/- per apple wowoeee!! How Costly!) and one 200 ml soya milk for lunch and boiled green vegetables and maybe yellow boiled dal some days-total 100- 250 gms max for dinner. Limit 1400 kcal per day. If I am hungry? Ohh I eat Britannia Digestive Biscuits- fibre.. or Britannia 5-Grain Biscuits.. or these sprouted food that is all.
And oh yeah.. I do try to walk briskly for 3 kms every morning.. (most days I jog for 1 km out of this 3) whenever I can wake up. I stll need some more zeal to do this walking every day!! Ooff!! tough for a guy who sleeps late for so many years to sleep early to wake up to walk!! Toughie!!.

India's Reply to Western Packaged Food

The Quintessential Green Coconut now looking white - the lifeline of Indian Countryside now in packaged form for the City Brothers vying for space as Packaged Food. It is something I saw in Chennai-- really Novel and Unique. You buy it and take it home, keep it and poke a hole and drink it. Just Rs. 20/-. Cheaper than a Burger and healthier than coke.

Love in the Sand

Love can bloom at the most unsuspected places...........
.............. when least expected....
............. And when it does , it blooms flowers even in the Sand..........Sand that has filled up space over time.........
But when love does bloom even sand forgets that it is sand.....and smiles again...even though it cannot go anywhere since it is still physically sand .... though changed inside...
..........And so says "Thank You" to the seeds that made this happen....
