I was having lunch with one of my colleagues, and I was having salad. He was having Dal rice with some chutney.
He says ” Why are you eating this now?”
Its 12 noon and I think I am eating lunch. “Why, what’s wrong?”
“You should enjoy now only” he says
“I am enjoying it”.
“This plain leaves, vegetables. You can eat them when you cross 40, any way that time your body will not support spicy food”, he says.
“As an Indian, can’t I eat anything without the famed Indian spices?”
“You can eat but your body should work fine so you have to eat Indian food”, The great lover of Indian food says.
“I am tired of preparing Indian curries and I am just eating Salad, I don’t know if Indian Gods will forgive me but you please do not curse me, my lord”
There is this misconception among the many Indians that Good food is the one which is tasty, spicy, chilly…anything other than that is equivalent to grass.
1.Good food is the one which gives energy and all the essential nutrients.
2. Good food is the one which is light on stomach and does not make you sleepy after eating.
3. Good food need not be tasty or spicy because stomach does not have any taste buds.
4. Good food which prepares your body best for the demands of growing up and old age.
5. Good food is not the one which titillates a few taste buds of the tongue.
Salad is a good food for my body and I think for many others.
