My breakfast: I start my day by having a glass of lemon water. Later, I have oatmeal (variations of it)/ muesli/ fruits/ smoothies. I make sure to add healthy nuts and seeds like chia seeds and walnuts.
Smoothies also ensure that I stay fuller for longer and don’t need to snack.
My lunch: I have the usual vegetable curry made at home. I replaced wholewheat rotis with makki/bajra/jawar chapatis. Somedays, I like to have vegetable quinoa or brown rice khichdi. Curd and salads are also a must-have as they aid digestion.
My dinner: Tomato soup or vegetable soup or daal or boiled eggs along with a plate of salad (cucumber and carrot)
Pre-workout meal: Soaked almonds
Post-workout meal: Green tea with peanuts
I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): I do not believe in the concept of cheat days. When I made the switch to healthier living, I didn’t feel like cheating on my diet or have the temptation for junk food that much.
Low-calorie recipes I swear by: Healthy vegetable soup, peanuts to snack on
