I have already mentioned these in detail in my previous post ‘Day 1- workout’. I like altering and alternating my workouts. In this post the cardio exercise, abdominal exercise and the strength training will vary slightly from the previous session’s workout.
Being a South-Indian, I have never failed to add curry leaves to any of my dishes. The BBC food describe them as “shiny, dark green, aromatic leaves from the citrus fruit family that release a delicious nutty aroma when fried in oil”.
