As I have mentioned in my previous posts, I am not a big fan of broccoli. The best I like with broccoli is broccoli paratha. Also I am a lazy person when it comes to making soups. It may be coz I am not a big fan of it. And I have to admit that I cheat a lot in eating my meals. I love junk food and what ever is not healthy🙁. From childhood I used to be a poor eater, cry to eat fruits and veggies. But mom wont let me go as such, she will make me eat and let me cry😆. After marriage, coming here to Singapore, there’s no one to question me. My world my own rules, so I started eating junk food, skip my breakfast, eat carbs alone, for lunch as well as dinner, never eat veggies other than brinjal and that too I make once in a while only. Fruits, same story.
For past 2 years I have been thinking seriously that I should change as I am growing old, time to take care of health. Seeing my mom and MIL, I will be thinking how I will be at their age, will I be able to do works as they do. Definitely no😐, now itself getting tired often and painful when we do little hardwork. May be its the mind set. I never can match their energy, keep admiring them everyday. So finally I started myself compelling to have balanced diet, make sure I eat vegetables, fruits everyday. Yay. I feel great and light, proud of myself. And it has become a habit slowly. Phew it took so long for me, for this silly thing. And soups are my next introduction to myself, I thought of drinking soups often as winter also is on its way. Broccoli soup is one idea given by my friend Sangeeta, I couldn’t get recipe from her, so I adapted slightly from here.
Adjust salt and pepper and serve hot with toast, you can have it dipped in the soup, tastes awesome!
