Wellness 7 days!

A month of oil-less food should do some good to my system, me thinks.
But then, Indian food and oil-free? Difficult. But possible. The idea is to keep oil to the bare minimum.
A few are already known to me. And few others I'll dig out.
To start with, I have already cooked dal, rajma and chicken without oil.
Soups would be good.
And again, when people have jaundice, they are prescribed oil-free, masala-free food. These are completely oil-free.
So, stews are possible. Chicken, fish, vegetables.
And I'll use a few recipes from the net. Google to the rescue.
Let me begin on Feb 1. That way, it would be easier to keep track.
Zero-oil biriyani from Sanjeev Kapoor. Subzi Pasanda by Tarla Dalal. The latter is not exactly oil-free. I'll tweak it.
Chapatis need to be made more frequently.
This also gives me another idea. A fortnight of rice-free eating. But later.

Gawd....did I thank you today?

I am grateful for the lovely sunrise I witnessed this morning.
Thank you for giving me the will to drag myself out of bed to walk, walk and walk some more.

I am grateful for the delicious dal I relished today afternoon.

Looks like its going to be made into a journal. I would like to pen down my day to day life here and that would be a good way to keep a record of my life here. Later when I'm old(yeah, I am young) and wish to look back on life, I can supposedly turn out here.

In the last 3 years, I made quite some lifestyle changes and I believe they were for good. Better in fact.

And there are some more I would like to incorporate.

Like munching on a few almonds daily.

Going for a 30 mins walk every morning.

Including fruits in my diet. Honestly, I have n't done anything in this Dept yet. And I have a feeling that I wont do much either. Lets still keep it here.

Consuming a mix of two or three oils. Like sunflower with rice bran?

Drinking enough water each day. And drinking water soon after brushing my teeth. Warm lime water would be even  better. Lets see.

Eating kidney beans(rajma), black grams(kala chana), kabuli chana, green moong, soyabeans regularly.

Leafy greens need to make an appearance daily/weekly.

Meditate for 15 mins daily?

Whoa! That's a wholesome list huh! Gee.... and to keep this lively and not boring, let me see...I'll include a picture that exudes life. Refreshing, isn't it?
