Peanut and Vegetable - Plain Fresh Salad

My dad is very energetic, active, fun loving & self motivated person. He is 16 at heart & 35 in looks but actually he is 65. He always carries that small curve in his lips & loves to see others happy.

No cholesterol, no BP, no diabetic.... Touch wood...but 20 days back he got mild fix & got admitted in hospital for angiogram. Luckily the report came with minimum blocks & now he is under medication.

That one day gave us a great shock. Me, my brother & mom couldn't take it god's dad is alright now.

One thing I learnt from this is that, "what you eat is what you will be.....". My dad is a non-veg person. No food without non veg style of living is what my dad had until yesterday but now everything changed towards vegetables, fruits, fibre....etc etc.

Even though its difficult.... Now my dad is ready to compromise anything for his loving wife, kids, grandkids..

Thanks Dad & we love u so much.....:-)

Friends, do give importance & eat healthy food so that we can stay healthy and show our love & support our loved ones.
