“Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.”
How true is this. At least to me it makes lots of sense. Not to boast there were days when my friends said I physically resembled Actress Simran, not pretty wise thou
But today, when I look at myself in the mirror I have grown 6 dress size which is terrible. Thanks to Hypothyrodism and Lack of exercise. Though TH says I still have some of those charm left, I know I will lose them all if I don’t take any preventive actions immediately.
I enrolled into a neighborhood gym to burn those extra pounds and even registered for a Personal training with an instructor who was no good (which I found later). To add to my frustration I didn’t see any difference in me. This is when I read about the South Beach Diet in Sig’s ‘Live to Eat‘ Blog. I was little hesitant to join this programme until I read about the success stories of Sig and fellow South Beach dieters. It was intriguing, then I asked myself. Can I keep up this commitment? Can I follow all the rules? Can I adapt Indian food to my diet? Then I remembered the quote above (first line of this post). So I decided to go on a South beach diet. After registering on SBD website and reading all their articles I fairly had an idea what I should do.
To me, the most important aspect of the diet is to eat what we enjoy. So I am trying to create meals that will suite my Indian taste buds at the same time I ensure that they are healthy and meet the SBD norms. Indian style Baked Chicken is one such improvisation to the Chicken fry. Hope you enjoy this as we did.
How it tasted?
The aroma of Indian spices filled my home and I couldn’t wait to take them out of the oven. Remember I am on diet so ate a small chunk to suppress my cravings. For TH, I sauteed the onions and tomatoes with little indian spices and added the diced chicken to make a simple and quick curry for the roti. I added the small chunks to my salad and savored it as a Indian style Chicken Salad for my lunch. YUMM. You can also serve it with soup and make it a wholesome meal.
