Are you on a diet and getting bored of eating a regular salad or boiled veggies every night? If you said no, then this blog is not for you. I am Geetanjali – your dietitian for the day. I have been in awe of tasty food recipes and being a diet conscious myself, I have never compromised on my taste buds. In my professional experience, I have witnessed numerous cases where I have been asked to assign diets that resemble almost zero percentage of fat.

It’s necessary to break certain mythical boundaries that have always revolved around the notions of weight loss. To lose weight, canceling the consumption of fat from your regular diet is absurd. According to nutritional studies, fats play an essential part in your diet and are vital for your body’s overall health. Fats provide body energy, protect organs, promote cell growth, control cholesterol, and blood pressure, and help in absorbing vital nutrients. Every food in moderation can be counted as a quality diet plan which lets you have a taste of everything. My evergreen advice on dietary queries to all my clients has always been ‘Yes! But not too much'. This states that a better diet plan will include everything you like but in moderation, which will make your meal time a fun one.

On that note, I have curated a perfect dinner menu that includes lip-smacking recipes that will complement your ongoing diet plan and you need not even compromise on your flavors.
