diet lunch menu idea

This lunch menu is very very elaborate. You might think that it will take more time. But it doesn't actually. When can you have such an elaborate meal ? It is definitely for a cheat day's lunch. This lunch menu is also Diabetic friendly. I love posting this kind of lunch menu. Only hard thing for me is taking snaps. Other than that these mind of menus won;t take much time. I have include all possible elements of health. Karuveppilai rasam is rich in iron. Lobia vadai is rich in protein, cauliflower is also good in vitamins. For diabetic friends, I have added a millet curd rice. A low fat thokku or pickle is given as a side dish. I feel it is a complete package of health. Other than vadai, everything is made with very very less oil. The combination of rice with rasam and kootu will always become a hit. Sameway curd rice with vadai and thokku makes the right choice. I hope you guyz love this menu.
