Spinach mung bean soup!!

Dieting is not about starving,but its about eating the right food. Right food implies low fat, less calories and a healthy meal. I have seen so many blogs which focusses on healthy food which inspired me to do the same. Recently Srivalli has been writing on diet food and has been giving a lot of tips on this issue.And then Usha has also been hosting a event on healthy soups. She has been posting a lot of healthy and delicious soups in her blog, when I realized that I have been neglecting soups from our diet.Soup has been such a rare thing at my place. But now, I have plans to include this in my menu on a regular basis.

So thats when I made this one for dinner yesterday which was quite filling, delicious and healthy with the lentil and greens.

  7. In fact I dislike the word “diet”. We should make it lifestyle to eat less than what we need, specially if we are overwt, like half portion on smaller plates and make it healthy if we can. I think it’s okay to have something fried or Burgers or Pizzas once in a while because depriving something we like makes us crazy thinking about it all the time!! 😀 Soup is wonderful, greens are yummy in any form. Good one.
