Tejaswini Kolhapure on her workout routine, eating habits and spiritual quotient…
My workout schedule is a bit erratic as of now. Ever since my daughter Vedika was born, I have been running around her! But whenever I do make the time for it, I do ashtang yoga in the morning for half an hour. In the evening, I go for a 45-minute brisk walk. That works just fine for me right now.
I’ve stopped eating chicken due to cruelty reasons. I’m trying very hard to give up fish, too. Being half a Mangalorean, fish is in my DNA and very difficult as of now. I’m hoping to cut down slowly. Since I have stopped eating chicken, I’ve been eating more greens; more of salads, soups, sprouts… I have been adding chia seeds in my oats and roti (whole wheat), and have started adding tofu in my meals, too. Most of my vegetables are organic. I try and eat fruits in the morning before meals. My only problem is I’ve developed a sweet tooth so after all this I add up calories with dessert! I have also been drinking warm water in the morning since the last 10 years. I have just started having cut lime with water before sunset.
Yoga keeps me calm. After my daughter Vedika arrived, I have really calmed down! To unwind, I love watching a good movie. I’m a movie buff and go alone to theatres to catch a new film.
