Balanced Diet .. healthy Salad & unhealthy Fries..

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 17 September 2010 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

Daily battle - Healthy Vs Unhealthy food...which I manage to lose consistently.

I am reliably told that eating equal portions of "forbidden" food does NOT "balance" the diet.....How unfair!!

Dry Gobi Manchurian is a very,very tasty dish of the Indian-Chinese cuisine..Chinese seasonings tailored to Indian,SPICY taste...
It is basically spicy, FRIED Cauliflower...

Bill Brown from California, United States

Looks great!

This is my kind of eating any day, Sunder. After cutting out the unhealthy food for awhile, you'll almost gag on it when you eat it again...maybe?

marci from somewhere in..., Morocco

just look at the colors ... the bright green, red and orange of the healthy salad is so much more appealing than the brown fried food, right? (yes, I'll keep telling myself this and hope that it helps...) lovely shot, regardless!

Well this all looks delicious Sunder! We have the same issues in my house...but we try our best - that's all one can do. To deprive oneself 100% of the time is a sure forecast for disaster. Allowing for a little deviation now and then is not a bad thing in my view. So I say Have a "gastronocally" wonderful weekend sir!
