Cracked Wheat & Oats vegetable Khichdi

      I can't believe it's December already. This year has completely flown by- and soon it will be 2016! Before we head into the new year, I wanted to make sure one thing that you all eat healthy and stay healthy for ever. For many people, eating healthy is a chore. When the world is filled with all junkie food, why in the world we ever bother eating a healthy meal? But also eating healthy food is actually delicious-- no lies.

It is Cracked Wheat & Oats vegetable Khichdi. Sounds already healthy, right?!
