Hi Everyone, We all look for a healthier and lighter option for lunch or dinner. As it is suggested to not have a single heavy meal, instead have lighter two meals. So breaking up breakfast, lunch, and dinner into two is suggested. In today’s world, it’s hard to keep a balance between work and a good diet for working women. Here I come up with a recipe that is healthy, easy and quick to make, light and tasty.
