After ages I am back to blogging. I had promised my self till the unfinished project I was woking on for many years is not complete I will not put up another update and by the grace of God my work is done so back to blogging and photography.
During these past months I had been following simple rules of eating right. I had been eating ghee, potatoes, white rice and deep fried home cooked food, yes deep fried! And another thing I did was that I regularised my exercise (not over exercise) just the right exercise. For that I made two investments. Well I did not really make the first one, I asked my husband to buy me a Treadmill as a birthday gift.
Husband: you sure, who wants a treadmill as a birthday gift?
Me: yes I am sure
Husband: don’t you want to buy jewellery or a bag?
Me: What’s the point of buying anything if you are not fit?
Husband: well its up to you well will buy you one..
Well after 10 years of marriage I think men stop arguing with wives.
My husband gave me a look that said it all
A stand up comedian at a wedding function gave advice to the groom “look if you want to live a happily married life remember this matra, always tell your wife, “yes honey you are right.”( tu sacchi che)
So my husband gave me the same old look, “yes you are right” and the treadmill was home thanks to our friend in less than a week.
Another thing I did was got a personal trainer at the gym. I came to my senses and realised I am not a person who can push and work out on my own.
So long story short I stopped checking my weight (which is still the same) and put a measuring tape on next to my wash basin and started checking my waist. My waist is four and half inches less from the time I started and that was an eureka moment for me as I had come to the conclusion that I might lose my weight but I would never be able to lose my stomach inches after my pregnancy.
Thanks to following Rujuta Diwaker’s free advice which she puts up on her facebook page, I lost the inches, am happier eating white rice every night and drinking sugar cane juice after every workout session and most important I don’t look like an old woman which happens to most people who diet and don’t eat the right things.
Since I have changed my outlook I eat whatever my dadi and nani use to eat , I will share the same food on this blog. From now on I am going to explore more regional and ancestral recipes here.
Warning: from now on all my recipes will contain ghee and oil as it is suppose to be eaten as good fat is important. Plus the ghee oil is needed as now I only cook in iron or steel vessels.
Today i am sharing green onions kadhi recipe. This recipe I learned from our Mahraj at my mum’s place, it is his staple food back in his village.
