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. Phewit 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!
