This recipe will convert you to a Kale lover!

Carbs...I was foolish to think I could avoid eating them, just cold turkey. Do not underestimate the power they have in your daily routine. After a few frustrating days battling the no carb diet, I decided never to do that again. I rather run an extra mile in the gym than have another hunger tantrum. I refuse to be discouraged so I evolved my diet to suit. I am going to avoid all the processed food but not carbs in the traditional sense.

I am going to avoid alcohol, bread(any flour), white rice, cheese and pasta. Instead, I am going to make pancakes from lentils, red and brown rice, quinoa, couscous, semolina, sago and a lot more new discoveries. 

Saturday was the first happy diet day! I made a delicious Kale sauté with yellow corn and fresh green peas. It tastes fabulous accompanied with brown rice and mint chutney. After trying this recipe I promise you, you will convert!
