South Indians have this tendency and urge to eat food that doesn’t require a lot of chewing, basically a little lazy 😛 I am no exception to it. Rice is the staple food for us and it doesn’t require chewing and easy to eat. There were days when I used to eat just rice with Yogurt mixed without any vegetables.

Actually that took a toll in my health, I got sick ,very fat, without nutrition I was weak. I couldn’t climb stairs. No physical exercise. Every one just made fun of me. I never used to care for my health. It took some time for me to realize it. By that time I had grown really fat.  I was a 5 footer with 155 pounds 😦

But I tried correcting myself by exercising every day. But did not correct my food, a big mistake again. Just exercise will not help. I realized this as well very late. Nevertheless I found it that both physical exercise and proper way of eating is the right way. After this yes I did slim down. I started practicing every Thursday with fruits and milk. Yes at first it was hell. I used crave for food and get exhausted. But slowly I adapted it. Now I am enjoying it. I feel very light after every Thursday when I do this fruits day.

Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third the daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K. Check this smoothie that I prepared with avocado.

Ingredients:

Avocado : 1 medium

Milk : 200 ml

Honey : 1 tablespoon

Cinnamon Powder : 1/8 teaspoon

Method:

Cut and slice the avocado, scoop the pulp out, add milk, honey and cinnamon powder and put it in a blender. Blend it to a smoothie, If you need you can add some more milk or water. I prefer honey rather than sugar as honey is much healthier than sugar. Enjoy this healthy smoothie dear friends 🙂
