Weight Loss Diaries Vol.21 : 5 Healthy Tasty Dishes (Recipes) | What I’ve been eating

 

Hey everyone!

Its been a while since I wrote about a weight loss update. Health took a backseat because August was a little hectic and I wasn’t being very particular with my diet and exercise routines. But since Lakme Fashion Week ended, I’ve been trying to eat clean and healthy. I’ve been and I thought of doing a quick recipe breakdown of 5 dishes I’ve been loving lately!

 

1. Banana Cinnamon Smoothie

 

I love fruit milk shades and smoothies and a banana smoothie makes an excellent breakfast! Banana is quite calorie rich and has potassium apart from Vitamins C and B-6. Its also rich in dietary fibre and antioxidants. A large glass of this smoothie is very filling and keeps me full for 2-3 hours!

1. Powder, Powder, Powder!

 

A lot of powder is used to set the base and to control shine – especially on the T-zone.

A whole army of assistants stand with powders and fluffy brushes to touch up the models’ faces right before they step on to the ramp. To add dewiness to the face, powder highlighters are used instead of cream/liquid ones.
