The three meal a day!

The best or rather a simple route towards a healthy life that she followed, may be because she had no other choices nor options. Likewise, each one’s experience could be different, she agrees. This book contains the traditional methods of well-being followed by her ancestors that she wishes to share primarily, with her son. To her son, she says who belongs to today’s world with a plethora of options to choose a diet he fancies. She says that even she was ridiculed during her growing years for being fat. She expresses her gratitude to those who constantly bullied her son too on his obesity and eating habits that made him conscious of what and how he eats.  She's also thankful to her son’s habit of falling in and falling out of several diets to lose weight, that instigated her to pen down the recipes. And of course, not the least she is grateful to her grandfather and others who’ve helped her in compiling these pages of her practises in maintaining a wholesome diet. A diet close to her  tradition. A diet more familiar and standard while alien recipes and gourmet remain as only guests of fantasy to her taste buds.
