ஒல்லும் வகையான் அறவினை ஓவாதே
செல்லும்வாய் எல்லாஞ் செயல்.
Practice virtues in every way that you go.
I try to hit a balance in the packed lunch with respect to the carbs, protein, fat, minerals & vitamins; I do so by keeping a watch on the items I pack collectively. There is one cereal as major portion rice or wheat usually, one pulse dish either dal or chole or rajma kinds or paneer or so; one seasonal fruit or veggie portion and a hydrating drink mostly buttermilk as TH sweats extensively round the year.

அறத்தினூஉங்கு ஆக்கமும் இல்லை அதனை
மறத்தலின் ஊங்கில்லை கேடு.
There is nothing greater than the virtues and nothing lower than forgetting such virtues.
After a break again am back with some lunch box ideas…
I feel I am more disciplined in preparing balanced food when TH carries lunch to office than he’s at home. May be it is because of the routine time I’m struck to or that I fill something in each of his boxes or simply it is a mind set or habit; while on weekends we eat out, eat brunches, snack now & then and we don’t really have a full course meal unless we’ve guests or damn good appetite. So when it comes to lunch I vote for week days lunch, it is a simple, healthy and balanced diet.
In this series am just listing down the items packed and not recipes.
Lunch Box Idea 1:
1. Tawa Pulao
2. Boondi Raita
3. Kokum Sharbat
4. Ripe Cut Mangoes (Himayat/ Imam Pasand)
சிறப்புஈனும் செல்வமும் ஈனும் அறத்தினூஉங்கு
ஆக்கம் எவனோ உயிர்க்கு.
Virtues yield highness and prosperity and what else shall a living being need more than such virtues.
