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.
