Soups are good healthy starters to a perfect meal. Soups are not only served a first course but also as a complete meal or a side dish. South Indian soups are however served mixed with cooked rice and a little ghee.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba says “You are what you feed on. Your activities shape your nature. At least in this birth, by regulating food and activity (Aahaara and Vihaara) man can promote Saatwic tendencies in him, through planned self-effort. Food is the chief formative force. Moral conduct, good habits, spiritual effort – all depend on the quality of the food you eat.” (GeVahini Pages – 249,250)
