#FitnessFood : Check out first recipe on blog: Sautéed Veggies

After coming back from gym, first and only question that arises in my mind, WHAT TO EAT NOW!!

Obviously after giving my precious 45 minutes of ‘so called productive day’ just to reduce those unwanted calories I want to grab something healthy which makes me and my tummy happy. Plus I must not feel any regret after eating it. (A fitness enthusiast can understand it very well)

Thus, after many experiments, I finally settled down to eat sauteed veggies after my workout session. I made little alterations to make it tasty and obviously just tasty. My tongue likes the feel of crunchy and tangy vegetables, I guess this was the only reason for liking this kind of boring (not anymore) food.

Sharing this first recipe is giving me an immense pleasure as the die hard fan of ‘Food and Travel shows’ in me always wanted to do something like this and that ‘ALWAYS’ is going to happen ‘TODAY’!
