Nice round up mansi.

Hey Mansi,

Firstly, Thank you soo much for letting me know about this wonderful event, or I would not have come up on this list at all. The list has the meanest healthiest dishes of all time :))
Not sure how important this point is, but there is one slight variation in the description of the dish, the mango jam I used was a store bought organic one and not home made by me. The fresh fruits were served on the side :)

Nice roundup. Coming from a noodle-loving family, I'm putting in my vote for the curry noodles. Looks like it's a close race so far.

Hope whatever was holding this up wasn't major and everythign is okay with you.

Hi Mansi, I am so happy that I made it to the finals, what a nice surprise! I love all recipes, but I think my vote goes to the black bean salad with quinoa, we use quinoa flakes with salad here and love it. Take care and thanks for hosting this beautiful and healthy event!
