Bhumi had to face several problems because of the excess weight she was carrying. Her back would hurt, her ankles would swell up. After months of hard work, she is finally feeling comfortable with her body weight.
Salads were given an experimental touch with home-made dressings and cold-pressed oils. Hummus was used a lot – in sandwiches, with rotis and over veggies and meat. Bhumi also gave up white sugar, refined oils, refined flours and alcohol. They baked their own bread with whole wheat flour. Her chapatis had less wheat and more wholegrain flour made of ragi, amaranth and chana.
