Bottle Gourd Sabji - Detox

BM #64 Week 2 Day 2  -

As a continuation of the Bottle Gourd Detox Plan, here is a salad/sabji which can be had as dinner. Again the idea is to refrain from consuming any salt and major carbohydrates. It is very easy to stay on this plan as it is only for a couple of days and there are a few options to make it interesting as well.

Yesterday, I wrote about breakfast and lunch options. This would be a dinner option and make sure dinner time is no later than 7 pm.

The quantity of sabji can vary from person to person but a big bowl full of sabji is typically enough to fill you up.
