As I told you before’ am kind of on and off with this Veg.Fast. I am trying to tweak my cooking style, with more G-R-E-E-N(vegetables I mean) rather than R-E-D (meat and stuff). Hmmm, though its not really satisfying, but its okay…I developed a special trait to adjust myself with Vegetarians these days.:)I used to whine a lot saying…vegetables take time, cleaning & cutting, ouch! Now, started seeing everything with a different glass…yep, its therapeutic to spend few more minutes in the kitchen and get rewarded with healthy-happy meal:)
