The daily ritual…

Tags: salad meal energy

In many cultures a prayer is offered to god before a Meal is prepared, while I am not a religious person and for sure do not offer prayers, I feel gratitude when I eat and I think that is important.

As mentioned in previous posts I am not following a diet, it’s a lifestyle. I shared the guidelines earlier and sharing the details with you in this post. So let’s begin:

7.30am – Within 10mins of waking up I eat almonds that I soaked the night before. The idea is to begin the day with a fruit – fresh or dried.

8.00-8.30am – I am a breakfast person. Usually I would eat 1 slice of whole meal bread with 1 egg omelette and black coffee. This could be a breakfast you’ve grown up eating a small bowl of porridge, oats, 2 Idlis, 1 dosa, a bowl of poha. This should an Energy packed fulfilling meal that satisfies you.

10.30am – small snack, I usually would have a handful of nuts, I am very busy at this time at work, usually running in and out of client meetings and nuts are the only thing that’s easy to carry and consume. I always have them in my bag and they give me the much needed energy in the mid morning time, also makes me eat less at lunch.

12.30pm – lunch, I do a mix of carrying food from home and eating out, I love salads so I eat that at least couple times a week. I also try to make most of my meals plant based. I will share my go to Salad recipes in the subsequent blogs. If eating a salad, pay special attention to the dressing, better to eat a burger than a salad heavy on creamy dressing. If I carry lunch from home, I would carry chapatis and Sabji, simple vegetable pulav, salads.

3.00-3.30pm – yes, I eat every 2-3hrs. This is my Low energy moment, I would have home made hummus, various kids, with cucumber and carrots, or cream crackers with jasmine tea. Other options could be fruit, unsweetened yogurt, cheese. Sometimes even I am surprised I am losing weight eating all this.

5.30-6.00pm – with dinner right around the corner this should ideally be a small snack, but I feel crazy hungry at this point. I usually eat a hearty snack at this time, sprouted moong bean salad, dosa, cucumber sandwich, fruit and yogurt.

7.30pm – I try to have dinner by this time, at the most by 8pm. I would usually have my staple Indian food roti, sabji and dal, chicken noodle soup, rice and curry sometimes a salad.

What works for me is the variety and the fact that nothing, and I mean it, is off limits. The key is in recognising your satiety signals. I will be sharing a ton of recipes that I use to make my meals in the subsequent posts.
