soya milk, cornflakes, fresh milk, green vegetables, beans, fresh fruits will substitute in our dining table for breakfast. For lunch and dinner, we make chappati out of wheat flour, and veggies,cooked with spices, will be there in addition to yogurt, plain or with spices.

Yes, I do understand what you are saying. What is important ofcourse is to be healthy, to have the food to keep healthy. Me too, I don't go for luxurious kinds of food. I am more of a vegetarian, and I believe vegetable have health value in different ways. I am happy if I have veggies on my lunch and dinner table. And, have a glass of milk.

Hello bea, one can't live without food, well food need not be delicious and costly, it should be whole some and tasty with less oils and spices, we eat rice, dal and vegetable curries in noon and paratha, dal fry in evening, and a cup of tea, non-veg once a month. Thanks for this discussion. Bhuwan
