    Holi is one if the most joyful festival and it’s full of colors. Can’t deny the exotic food that we get to eat. I am not much of a cook myself but I do cook on special days like holi.

    The ingredients for these snacks are really healthy. Doing a lifestyle change does not prevent you from enjoying the holidays. It just means finding creative ways to make healthier versions of traditional food. I think I will try making that green bean and low fat cottage cheese galettes.
