So it was only May end/beginning of June that I was down with a cold and got these useful home remedies. I’ve barely got over that bout (or so it seems!) and I am down with a cold again. Gosh, how I hate them!

I was going through a recent Deccan Herald where I found these useful tips! Here they are:

(Disclaimer: If some of this is incorrect, I didn’t make it up! Blame the DH. And also do your own research. 🙂

One thought on “Another ready reckoner!

  1. Yes, potatoes are low in fat, full of carbs. But potatoes combined with any form of fat are reverse the good effects. Boiled potatoes is a good low fat filling food but fried form is bad. 🙂
