We all love delicious food be it home-made or street side. There is a saying that some people eat to live and some people live to eat. I fall in the second category. Being a foodie, I cannot help but eat whenever I just feel like. Tasty food enhances and lifts up my mood. But that does not mean that I am obese or not health conscious. I do work out regularly while balancing my hunger for tasty food. I am the type who advocates to eat whatever you want and work it out the next day. But Gujarat has a special place in my heart for the delicious foods and treats it has to offer. Also, the food in Gujarat is not only tasty but also healthy as most of them are steamed. Check out the 5 best breakfasts in Gujarat.
