Ridge Gourd with Carrot | a unique combination

"Eat for the body you want, not for the body you have."

Taste receptors on our tongue are entertained with numerous kinds of flavours throughout our lives. Sometimes that's all we focus on ; the taste. We work so hard to prepare food which pleases our brain for a few seconds and then regrets for longer when we step on the scale. Boring healthy diets are out of the table if you want to have a healthy body while "living" your life. A "balance", apply that to your diet just the way you should apply it to everything in life.

The reason why ridge gourd crossed my mind is that, we grew up eating this just because we were forced to. I hope you can relate to that. The fact that it has a very bland and neutral flavor always made us reject it as kids. If you have kids, I'm positive that you will agree with me. This recipe is a tiny attempt to add a little excitement to something boring.

This is the paragraph where I explain the nutritional value of ridge gourd which I suggest you read. Ridge gourd is known to have low carbs & low calories, making it ideal for anyone who wants to get in shape. And it's moisture & fiber contents help in digestion while improving eyesight is a benefit coming from Vitamin A. If I give you a tip, when you buy ridge gourd, make sure to buy deep green ones, they are the freshest. (Source - https://m.netmeds.com)
