  • I was brought up by parents who loves to eat green leafy vegetables (but we are not pure vegetarians). During my childhood days my playmates calls me “grass eater” and “relative of cow” coz I really love raw vegetables. Well, now that we’re grown up my childhood playmates no longer tease me but ask a lot what is good and what is nutritious to eat when it comes to food.
