I wanted to include as many veggies as possible in our diet. I also wanted to reduce rice and wheat usage.To achieve this, I modified diet routine as follows
Breakfast: Veggies, fruits and grains/seeds like quinoa, oats, foxtail millets, finger millets/ragi, pearl millets/bajra. Sometimes I would make toasts using whole wheat bread with veggie toppings.Lunch: Brown rice so that it fills tummy fast - so we get to eat less rice.
