Good Morning

After all the festivities, we woke up to a breakfast of beta carotene, vitamin A and E and other minerals aka carrot juice. Here is my recipe

Wash and peel a big bunch of carrots (20-25 carrots)
3 apples, peeled.
Run the carrots and apples through your juicer and voila, the drink is ready.

Right after the party was over on Diwali day, I packed most of the sweets in decorative boxes and gave it away. My home is now sweets free and I can't wait to get back to my Vinyasa class this evening. Are you back on track?

In between, did you watch our President and the First Lady dance to Indian folk tunes?

Oh no, my home is still festooned with sweets. Hubby has a major sweet tooth and If I don't keep them around, he'll just get some from the market. At least i know how much of everything I added (I tried to make the "healthy" sweets--til ka laddoo and peda)--with reduced sugar and smaller sizes. I hit the gym with a vengence come Monday!

Loved your healthy detox breakfast. sadly I made parathas. :(

Thanks for the nice juice recipe. We will prepare that in our home. Now, i don't have to say "I could have had a V8".

This is my first time here :) I hope you had a fun Diwali :D My home is still not sweet-free...I still see sweets everywhere and am trying to get rid of it coz I will end up gaining more weight than I managed to lose if I don't give up hogging them :D

Oooo, your carrot juice is so pretty! And what a great way to detox after all the sweets and fried things from Diwali :)
