I have been cooking lots of Indian lately, for my dad, and therefore eating lots too. I have been skipping going to the gym too because I want to spend time with him when I am home. Saturday night I wore a top and realized how much I have put on weight in just two weeks! So eating healthy starts now! :) (We will see how long this lasts :P)
I have never made salad any other way other than the Indian way. But I have tried all sorts of salad. So today I pledged not use any Indian spice. I looked up several recipes and adapted it to suit my palate. Some recipes added sugar but given that today was No-Indian-Healthy-diet Day, I passed on the sugar.
No preparation required. Serves 1.
1. 1/2 fresh cucumber, sliced
2. 1 small tomato
3. 1/4 red onion, sliced or chopped

A dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tablespoon garlic salt
Salt to taste

Relish with a guilt free smile!
