But sometimes,you have to go against your wishes and follow a plan.Diet works only and only if you have a proper diet plan.I was determined to lose weight and hence was willing to eat anything which my dietician prescribed.I started checking out different salad recipes,checked out low-fat recipes in websites and what not.Ma-in-law makes salads on a daily basis and I started following her recipes which gave me different varieties to choose from.Now I too make different salads daily and as the McDonald’s ad says – I’m Loving it!!
P.S - After the dessert overdose at Easycooking,I guess I have to make it up with this healthy salad;-)!!!
