    I am back again!! Here is my log for today.
    2 small dosa + red bell pepper pacchadi (recipe source: Mahanandi) + one cup of milk with horlics
    2 slices of whole wheat bread + sautéed mixed vegetables + 8 strawberries
    one cup of Bacchali koora pappu + one cup of ulli sambar
    I made stuffed kakarakaaya (recipe source: Mahanandi). This was a bit bitter for me to eat by itself. So I tasted it with a scoop of rice. Tasted awesome. Will be making it very often now.

    30 min Elliptical + 15 min Strength training.

    In retrospect, I dint ahve enough fruits and raw veggies today.
